Reviews & Questions
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:
- 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.
- 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.

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