Halvarssons Prime Black Ivory Jacket
Halvarssons motorcycle clothing is built around high technology. The choice of material and the manufacturing technology are key in creating fully functional garments with focus on safety and comfort. New, improved, materials created by nanotechnology and space technology has facilitated the manufacture of motorcycle clothing that holds its own in the tough Nordic climate. Halvarssons use a variety of techniques on both leather and textiles to keep you cool on a hot summer’s day and warm on a late autumn morning.
The Halvarssons Prime jacket is a rider-developed high performance maximum comfort motorcycle jacket. The Halvarssons Prime is aimed at the most demanding of riders out in all weathers. The jacket is equipped with a removable Thinsulate backed Outlast thermal liner. Outlast, a certified space technology, is a high tech material developed for astronauts that evens out the temperature in the garment to enable it to cope with extreme temperature differences. Millions of microscopic paraffin capsules disperse the heat to keep you comfortably warm. For more information on how this works see the video above.
The Halvarssons Prime jacket incorporates advanced features such as pre-curved ‘angled overlap’ sleeves which are width adjustable. The curve feature gives the forearm a more natural line at the cuff/glove interface. Riders using ‘race-style’ leathers are used to seeing soft textile inserts at the backs of knees and inside forearms, this textile jacket also shares this feature enabling greater flexibility and comfort.
To further your comfort and safety, Halvarsson utilize a unique armour location system, which enables you to 'dial in' your own personal fit at the elbows and shoulders for optimum comfort and safety. There is a provision for a Halvarssons Secure Level 2 CE approved back insert (available seperately) The jacket also has a unique ‘elasticated twin waist adjuster’ giving a supportive snug fit in the lumber region of the lower back, helping to secure the jacket with more stability. The jacket is long enough to prevent ‘ride-up’ but is also fitted with a full-length zip for attaching to Halvarssons textile trousers.
For the safety conscious rider, 'Black Diamond' reflective panelling is used at the shoulders, the front and rear of the arms, chest, and upper and lower back in addition to the extensive use of Scotch Lite piping. The Halvarssons Prime jacket comes complete with a removable Hi Viz Yellow vest and a removable fleece lined 'throat coat'.
Unlike many other brands hailing from southern Europe, the sizing used by Halvarssons is much more akin to that found in everyday clothing found on the high street (helped, no doubt, by the flexible nature of the jacket too!)
