The Sollbury Freedom Biker Jacket is everything a motorcyclist need to enhance the drive!
The first wax coat was worn more than a hundred years ago in England. Favored by landsmen and hunters, Royals and peasants, this legendary jacket has become renowned the world over, not least for it's practical qualities giving you excellent protection from the elements.
The History Behind
Early sailors noticed that wet sails were more efficient than dry sails because wet cotton is windproof, but they also noticed that wet sails were very heavy and slowed the vessel down. In the Middle Ages, they started to apply fish oils and grease to the sailcloth in order to make the sails windproof, and also to stop the rain and spray soaking the sails and stopping them getting too heavy. They used sailcloth to make waterproof capes for themselves to keep them dry. The result was more efficient sails in dry weather (being windproof), lighter sails in wet weather (not getting waterlogged), and drier sailors.
Making it a Classic
Eventually, that material evolved into the modern wax cotton material. Theoretically, it should have died out as more modern waterproof materials emerged, but it survived in two areas — motorcycling and farming— because of its sheer toughness. Motorcyclists also loved its toughness and that it lasts "forever". They can reproof it, and therefore expose it to hard driving conditions without it being ripped to shreds. .
In the past decade, movies like James Bond, have featured the hero in similar "biker design" resulting in the Biker Jacket currently being a very fashionable item in addition to ever lasting classic.
