Ashley Watson Eversholts Jacket MKII Dark Olive
The Eversholts Jacket MKII is a motorcycle jacket developed by the British brand Ashley Watson. As usual with everything that Ashley Watson releases, the Eversholts are the result of years of product development and field testing.
Nothing has been left to chance, everything from the placement of buttons and pockets to the choice of material on the collar lining is bumped and soaked to create the perfect travel companion that will accompany you for many years to come. The choice of outer material in high-quality waxed cotton also means that the jacket will only get more beautiful over the years and the more it is used.
Eversholts is not only a jacket for the riding season, but it is at least as useful if you choose to put the riding away during the winter. Take out the shock protectors and you're left with a competent autumn and winter jacket that can also handle a roll with the pedal bike or a serious forest walk in the Swedish wilderness. In addition, it will wear nicely much faster.
Top class security
Eversholts has received the highest possible CE classification for motorcycle jackets, which is an AAA classification . It corresponds to at least 70 meters of slip protection and is a garment that is rated to handle motorway speeds of 120 km/h.
To achieve this, Ashley Watson has chosen to use a mixture of Dyneema and Aramid which reinforces the outer waxed cotton fabric. All seams have been designed to handle 12 N/m of force, which corresponds to 2.5 cm handling a weight of 30 kg.
Shoulders, elbows and back are protected by the super-smooth D3o Ghost and Viper protectors, which we previously saw in the Bike Sheds Road Jean motorcycle jeans and in the Resurgence Ultra riding shirt. All protections are also included in the price.
The devil is in the details
At Eversholts, nothing is left to chance. A seam-sealed waterproof lining, double zip front, adjustable storm collar and adjustable lining cuffs make for a jacket that works all year round, through rain and shine.
The outer pockets are expandable and also have an elastic inner pocket, perfect for keys, receipts or important documents such as a passport - perfect when space is limited on a trip. An elastic document pouch is molded inside each bellows pocket and keeps valuables close at hand. The Eversholt jacket has a W seam detail at the back of the collar with our AW monogram stitch below. A unique edition label will be sewn inside each jacket to distinguish Batch 001 from future productions.
The jacket is normal in fit, so you can take the size you usually wear in a jacket/shirt/sweater.
