Merlin Sandon Wax Jacket

With dapper embellishments including diamond quilted shoulder panels, embroidered logos on the upper arms, and a nifty coin pocket by the cuff on the clutch side, the Merlin Sandon Jacket is as smart in its style as its design. Like something straight out of a Steve McQueen movie, the Merlin Sandon Waxed Jacket doesn’t just look the part- it has real moto performance up its sleeve. Actually, there is Safetech CE armor up both sleeves at the elbows and shoulders and provisions to upgrade the back pad as well (sold separately). The Reissa waterproof-breathable membrane and removable thermal liner, in conjunction with twin chest vents, allow you to adapt to changing weather conditions. Whether you do your own stunts like McQueen himself or just need a fashionable, functional riding jacket, the Merlin Sandon Waxed Cotton Jacket can handle it.

Features:

  • Shorter length heritage-style jacket
  • Original Scottish Halley Stevensons 8oz thornproof waxed cotton
  • Reissa waterproof and breathable membrane
  • Removable Safetech CE armor in shoulders and elbows
  • Pocket for optional back armor
  • Back foam pad
  • Removable 100g thermal liner
  • YKK short jacket-to-pant connecting zipper
  • Diamond stitch quilted shoulder overlays
  • Multiple pockets inside and out
  • Forearm coin pocket
  • Adjustable hem, cuffs and biceps
  • Twin zippered chest vents

Note: The Brown color has an Olive hue as pictured.

This jacket is awesome - VERY happy with purchase
Where to begin... I absolutely love this jacket. The styling is unbeatable. Looks and feels great. It almost passes as a regular street jacket.

The armor is less bulky than my other motorcycle jackets... barely visible on the shoulders, and completely invisible on the elbows. Yet, it feels sturdy and safe; the cut of the jacket just conceals it well. It's as safe as any other jackets I've worn.

As for the fabric, this jacket is VERY heavy. It's a thick, warm, high quality piece. In terms of weight, it wears more like a thick leather jacket than a lighter textile or mesh jacket. With or without the liner, I wouldn't dare wear this in the summer. It'll be my go-to fall/early spring jacket, fold colder weather, which is what I bought it for.

The only negative... and I'm really nitpicking here: the bottom of the jacket (torso) rides quite high, which is visible in the Revzilla video review on the demo-guy. When I stand normally, my belt buckle is fully visible. It might bug some people. Also, from my semi-crouched stance, I'm not sure how much of my lower back will be exposed.

IMPORTANT RE SIZING: I was nervous about sizing, since I live in Canada, and returns aren't free... it would cost me double-import-taxes and triple-shipping costs, so I prayed to get it right on the first try.

I did.

I got a small. It fits absolutely perfectly: shoulders, sleeve length, fit, etc. Normally, I wear a M or a L. As a comparison, my Alpinestars jacket is a Large and it fits me snuggly.

I'm 5'11", 183 lbs, 40 inch chest. The sizing chart was recommending Medium for me, but in their video, Revzilla recommended to get one size below. Another youtube online demo made a similar suggestion. Finally, I checked Merlin's website itself, which also specified that they make their sizes "big/loose".

So Revzilla's advice was spot-on, which I appreciate tremendously. Thus, I also recommend that you pick one size smaller than the sizing chart indicates. As weird as it feels for me to wear a small...

Love this thing!
First, Amanda in customer service is awesome and so are the folks at the RevZ store.
I was looking for a wax jacket (I just like the look) and everything out there was in the $600+ range. So I settle for a non-wax jacket and then a few days later I get the RevZilla email that this piece of awesomeness just arrived!
Amanda helped me get this switched out and even confirmed the correct back protector for the jacket (running around to the warehouse to confirm fitment).
This jacket looks and feels great. You wont look out of place walking around in it. The liner is warm and took it out last weekend when the weather was just under 60 degrees. The vents work well but I wouldn't wear this in warmer weather.
Collar is comfortable, not scratchy.

Very happy with this purchase.

Great Investment
I was hesitant on buying this jacket because I have never invested that much money into clothing. I can say that I will never regret this purchase. On sizing, I am 5'11 and 225 lbs with a muscular build and I purchased the XL. The fit was almost perfect. With the armor in the jacket was a little tight through the shoulders. I removed the armor and now it fits perfect. I can honestly say that I will probably purchase the Armitage jacket next. Great product.

Great jacket
So far so good with the Merlin Sandon. I was finally able to test it out when it got unseasonably warm here for February. Road twice, once towards sunset with just a t-shirt under it while it was in the upper 50s. I was fine at first but got a little cold after the sun dropped. Next day was up in the 60s and I had a sweater underneath it and was perfectly comfortable. It has lots of pockets for storage and fits very well and looks great, even with all the armor and the liner in. I'm 5'8" 155 and got a small. I think it would be fine to ride with temperatures in the 40s with layers under and easily into the 80s with the liner out. Really happy with it so far!

Great for fall,winter, and early spring in Florida.
The Merlin Samson looks great. It has been my commuter jacket for a month. Temperature got in the mid 70s F a few days ago and I was pretty warm with the vents open and no liner installed. I was able to ride comfortably in 35 degree weather. Highly recommended.

I own an Alpinestars summer mesh jacket, but was in the market for a good cooler weather jacket but that I can also wear on the street without shouting "hey look I, ride a motorcycle". First RevZilla is always quick and shipping out items and great chat support.

I am 5' 5" , 140lbs and chest 36. So finding a jacket that fits my slim small body is hard to find. (most jackets ride up my neck or bunch up in the gut area)

I ordered the black Small, and seeing it was from Europe, I figured it would be slim in the gut area. I figured correctly. Fits me almost spot on. With the shoulder pads it is a little boxy, but if you remove it after riding it looks like a regular coat. I ride a cafe racer so leaning with this jacket isn't too tight (then again I'm not a big guy so I suppose that helps)

As others have said, it's a heavy jacket, good for two reasons. One it for sure will be good on cold days (no air leaks through) and second (God forbid I go down), it will hold up very well if I were to slide on pavement. A very manly and rugged jacket for sure. I was caught in a down pour while wearing it, my shirt was damped; I'd say it's more water resistant than water proof. The best part of the jacket is the price. For $300 you get all the protection you need and a very well made jacket. I am very happy with it and I cannot think of any cons aside I have to wait a few months to wear it as I wouldn't dare wear it over a 70 degree day.

Like a Boss
This is my third different brand of jacket, and finally I've found a keeper. It's very different, as the video mentions it being a "wet wax" it truly does have a damp hand to it. I've only just received it, but I'm quite taken. It really doesn't breath at all, and I imagine it would have been perfect a couple months ago when it was cold out, here in Texas, but it's boss. It really gives you a bit of swagger less James Bond, more Steve McQueen, but it's tangible. If I wasn't honest I'd write some terrible review bashing it for "looking like a Belstaff" just so people wouldn't buy it and I could be the only cool kid, but its really quite spectacular. I hope Revzilla starts carrying the Elsford pants to make it a complete set, or any of the other short jackets on the Merlin site for that matter. It's definitely a relaxed fit. I'm a 43" chest and with the sides cinched all the way, I'm still swimming in the Large, but I didn't want to risk it being too short with the medium. Because of the waxed nature of the cotton, it drapes well and really clings to you while at speed. I actually kept trying to get the front to billow with air to cool me down, but even unzipped to the waist, it was unsuccessful. It just clings, very interesting. I have no doubt it's quite water repellant and will hold up over time, but it's not a warm weather jacket at all. I see myself wearing this 4 months of the year in Dallas.

Top quality and stile. Not so oversize as they say.
I usually use L and as I read it about this brand I ordered a M. It is ok but too tide for me. And too short at the back.... thinking about it is a winter jacket...a lot of cold air is freezing my back... anyway.. the jacket is really cool. And keep my chest warm... only my chest.
