Merlin Armitage Wax Jacket

With a look reminiscent of early 20th century British servicemen uniforms, the Merlin Armitage Jacket is constructed of original Halley Stevensons waxed cotton, made to serve the rider dutifully for many years. Safetech CE armor in the shoulders and elbows offer protection from impact. Come inclement weather, the Armitage Jacket is equipped with a Reissa waterproof-breathable membrane and a removable thermal liner. Cross quilt overlay panels at the shoulders and chest and an embroidered emblem on the upper arm add a contemporary touch to the traditional style of the Merlin Armitage Waxed Jacket.

Features:

  • Original Scottish Halley Stevensons 8oz waxed cotton
  • Reissa waterproof and breathable membrane
  • Removable Safetech CE armor in shoulders and elbows
  • Removable 125g thermal liner
  • Short connecting pant-to-jacket zipper
  • Four outer patch pockets with stud and VELCRO® brand fasteners
  • Nelson-style lower hand warmer pockets
  • Cross quilt overlay panels at shoulders and chest
  • Merlin embroidered logo

Seems to be a very warm and comfortable jacket
First things first: I own way more jackets (leather and non) and motorcycle jackets than one can consume in a lifetime. They are my passion, and I don't mind spending a lot of money for a good product. I have Belstaff, Barbour, Dainese, Alpine Star, Revit, Roland Sands, Icon 1000, Spidi. Name one brand, I probably have a jacket from that brand.

I was recently in the market for a winter leather jacket, and I stumbled upon this while browsing. I had never heard of the brand, Merlin, and I thought they were trying too hard to be a mix of Belstaff (even the logo is so similar) and Barbour.

I pulled the trigger anyway, because it seemed well made and I was ready to return it in case it didn't work. I had previously bought elsewhere an Icon 1000 Akorp that I promptly returned because it does not protect you from the cold, so I was curious to see how this would work.

Out of the box, the jacket is very heavy (a good thing), and it looks very well made. I like a lot that the liner is a full liner, down to your sleeves. I thought this would help with the cold, and I was right. I took it the other morning for the first ride in 35F weather on a naked bike, and after one hour of riding I was still warm. The day before, with the same temperature I tried to use the Icon 1000 Akorp and I had to go back inside and change into something warmer.

So far, this is what I think:

GOOD:
- looks very well made;
- very warm (it is a real Fall, winter jacket);
- fits true in US sizes (I am a 40 in US jackets, 50 in Dainese, and M in Roland Sands, and the M of this Merlin fits me perfectly).
- the liner is a REAL liner, down to the sleeves. It blows my mind to see Icon try and charge higher prices with a mere sleeveless vest as a liner.

BAD:
- the cotton used for the liner is a bit rough. It doesn't look or feel plush at all. Not a big deal, but the materials used by Barbour and Belstaff are superior as far as liners are concerned (but the prices are 3 times the one of this Merlin). In general, I would say that this jacket just feels a bit rough.
- As the Revzilla guy says in the video review, I wish there was an extra snap in the back of the flap. As it is, I need to leave the jacket unbottoned and it looks, well, unfinished. As if the designer hadn't thought about this.
- No back protector.
- The logo makes this jacket look like a Belstaff knock off, and the stiling makes it look like a Barbour knockoff. The logo is the one that bothers me the most.

CAN'T COMMENT YET ON:
- DURABILITY: I cannot say anything about durability of this jacket. I plan on updating this review in the future. Too many times was I enthused about a jacket who aged extremely poorly (I am talking about you, Roland Sands).
- WATER PROOF: Haven't had it in the rain yet.

So, all in all, if you are looking for a jacket for your wet Fall and winters, and you don't mind it looking like a Barbour or a Belstaff, without being a Barbour or a Belstaff, this is the jacket for you.

GREAT Purchase. PHENOMENAL Jacket.
There's only three reviews up on this one, and they sound a little mixed. I bought this a couple months ago. Couldn't be any happier.

The Brown is actually a Brown-Olive. It's got a really cool rustic look to it. Really like the color. Great storage with the pockets, as well. Waxed cotton has a good feel (not soft but not rough either). And... it keeps you warm. The thermal liner is really great. Love the design of this jacket. Also, love that the collar has a soft leather top edge to it, that is really comfortable up against your neck. The shoulder and elbow armor this comes with fits in seemlessly, and isn't so obvious since it's got that warmer/winter vibe jacket look going on anyways.

The only thing that I found strange... the pull cord to tighten the waste inside... was like 2 feet longer than necessary! What are you supposed to do with that? On the bright side, it's easy to cut all that extra length off the cord, and just re-tie the end and you're all good.

Easy 5-stars on this one. Great look. Great value.

Tried it on
I have been very interested in Merlin jackets for the last few months, as I have been looking for an affordable wax cotton jacket for my vintage triumph. A friend of mine just picked one up, as a birthday present, for his scrambler, and I got to try it on today. I am mainly writing this to help people with fitment.

I am 6'2", 225 lbs, with a 46 inch chest and a size 34 in jeans. I wear a 58 in Alphinestars jackets. My friend purchased a size Large, and with the liner out, it fit me like a glove while wearing a polo shirt. I did not try it with the liner in, but there is no way that it would have fit in the arms or chest.

I am impressed with how heavy and solid the jacket feels, while the armor is very well hidden, and not noticed at all. The wax cotton is rough feeling; however, I do not know if this is something that can be dealt with when you rewax it, or if it softens with wear. It did not bother me, I am just confirming what another reviewer mentioned.

This jacket traps heat very well. I was in the the shade, with a polo shirt on, and it was in the mid 70's (in late october), and I was sweating after a couple of minutes of having the jacket on.

I cannot speak to the water proofing, or to how it fits while riding, but I can say that I will probably be picking up one of these or a Sandon very soon.

Good concept but didn't work for me.
After researching this brand countless times I jumped on the armitage in size small (5'7" 160lbs, dainese 40 US, suit jacket 39-40) in green color. The jacket arrived super fast.
It has a rugged texture and feel and between the olive hue and overall design, this looked great out of the box. Unfortunately, after putting it on I discovered many limitations.

The jacket is on the larger side. The small size was still a bit loose overall. It fit better with the liner in but the jacket is warm enough to not require the liner all the time, hence, one would have to deal with a looser fitting. While the chest fitting was still acceptable, the arms are excessively large and require a proper stint at the local gym. The unfortunate consequence of this is that the elbow armor just dangles in the garment, sliding easily into the forearm. In a crash, the armor would just be a witness to an elbow shattering. The elbow piece is also small in comparison to most jackets I've owned, further limiting my confidence in this jacket. The shoulder armor is similarly handicapped by its small size and loose fitting within the garment.

What is a great concept, unfortunately does not pan out in execution. The jacket does not offer adequate protection for the road and at the same time, is too bulky to be used as an everyday jacket. For now I'll stick to my dainese textile piece which doesn't have all the style but at least stays true to its functionality. The rev'it city collection may offer a more acceptable balance as well.

Look at it! It's classy like those made by Barbour or Belstaff, but good God, at an amazing price point.

The quilting and brass look incredible, and the waxed fabric will be a nice change from my usual leather.

Are the hand warmer pockets accessed from the side or from the top?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are accessed from the side of the bottom 2 button flap pockets. it also has two bible pockets inside the jacket. One in the liner and one in the jacket. Hope that helps.
Does this have a pocket for a back protector?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. The back protectors used on Roland Sands and Icon 1000 jackets fit perfectly.
Can you give the lenght of the jacket from the base of the colar to the base of the jacket ? Thanks

Hi

Is it possible to wear a suit jacket or a blazer under the Armitage? Is it long enough?

Thanks
