Helstons Ace Vintage jacket in brown Product Information

The Helstons Ace Vintage jacket in brown, sometimes known as the Helstons Ace Oldie, is the most famous and popular jacket in the Helstons range. It is made from a 1.1/1.2 mm full-grain cowhide that has been treated with oils and waxes for extra suppleness. The leather has also been washed to give it a realistic used patina. The jacket comes fitted with CE armour in the shoulders and elbows, as well as in the back. The Ace Vintage comes with a fixed waterproof membrane, although in truth this is in the jacket less for waterproofing and more for windproofing. You also get a removable, aluminium-lined, thermal jacket. We don’t know what it is that makes the Ace Vintage so popular. Perhaps the sleeve stripes. Perhaps the vintage treatment to the leather. We don’t know; all we know is that the package works. This is one of the coolest, café racer jackets you will ever come across.

  • 1.1mm - 1.2mm full grain leather
  • Oiled and waxed for extra suppleness
  • Washed leather for vintage appearance
  • Removable thermal lining
  • Fixed waterproof membrane
  • Removable CE approved shoulder, elbow and back protection

Size Chart

Helstons Men's Motorcycle Jackets. Please note: Sizes available are shown on the product page.

S 36" - 38"
M 38" - 40"
L 40" - 42"
XL 42" - 44"
XXL 44" - 46"
3XL 46" - 48"
4XL 48" - 50"
5XL 50" - 52"
6XL 52" - 54"
7XL 54" - 56"
8XL 56" - 58"

The chart is quite accurate, but you should be aware of the fact that with its thermal liner and heavy back protector in place, the jacket is going to feel quite tight when you first put it on. Over time the leather will give, and the jacket will become more comfortable. If you order one size larger than you would normally, the jacket may well feel a little more comfortable when you initially put it on. But if you were then to remove the thermal liner and back protector for summer riding, it might well then feel too large.

David Brown: Product Review

Fantastic quality. Oozes style and smells wonderful!

Cliff Dawes: Product Review

This jacket is simply superb. It fits snugly with the lining in and is very warm on the bike.

David Darby: Perfect

This jacket is perfect. The style, the soft leather, the quality and the fit. To help ordering online I'm 6ft slim build with a 40in chest with 32in waist. I bought a small and its a perfect snug fit. If possible visit the shop. This place is amazing. Take extra money and treat yourself.

Malcolm Lyne: I love this!!!

Amazing jacket. Smells great, looks great and actually got stopped in the street asking where I got it from by a non biker!!! You really have to visit the shop for a great personal shopping experience. You will not regret visiting and you will not regret buying this jacket.

peter vincent: Helstons Ace Retro/Vintage Jacket

i love this jacket . Its very hard picking an item from a picture, when you know you will be spending valuable "spare" time in it but this jacket is spot on .as is the description of it.

Chris Blight: Helton Ace Vintage Review.

Really pleased with the quality and fit of this Ace Vintage, looks ,smells and feels great. Even with the armour and thermal inner, it still feels and looks right, I.e Not like a Stormtroopers on Steroids! Many thanks to Ruth,Debbie and William, at Motolegends, for their efficient and knowledgeable assistance ,. Definitely would /will, shop here again.

John Manchester: Ace indeed

This is a quality leather jacket.The vintage look is just right and the leather hide has a great feel as well as an authentic worn in appearance.Full 'smooth way' pad protection on shoulders, elbows and a back protector is also included.I'm approx 6'2 of medium build I used my Belstaff Selby jacket as a size guide and went for the XL.Fits perfect. Great styling and feels great on.

Patrick Puxley: Mr

Loving my Ace Vintage. Bought a year ago but not worn until I recently picked up my bike from Glasgow after some engine work. Thoroughly broken in now, following the ride South to Berkshire. Comfy, warm when it needed to be , cool, as it got hotter, with removal of the liner and great "shabby" style.

Martyn Capstick: Love Helstons

Love this jacket. I'm around 42-44in chest and 34-36in waist and XL fits like a glove. A snug fit (but not uncomforable) with the lining in, and a more relaxed fit with it removed. Looks great straight out of the box, and feels great. I also ordered a Helstons Cruiser jacket, with the intention of keeping the one I liked best.... I ended up keeping both. Great service from Motoledgends too.

mark ward: mr

quality jacket which whilst a top end price should last years and includes a full spec back protector. can easily be worn as a casual without a hardened biker look. worth the price. large build and 51 inch chest - size 6xl just fine, 5xl would have been tight, the liner is quite thick.

mark ward: All rounder

substantial jacket, equally useful off the bike, a bit pricey but should last years and you dont need to buy a back protector. largest size for me with 51 inch chest and midriff. impressive

mark ward: lots of quality

high end quality and can be worn as casual, at least full spec back protector included, should last years

Dennis Komis: Great jacket

I ordered the jacket requesting a price match. Motolegends responded within 24 hrs. The item was shipped the next day and received the day after. The jacket looks amazing, quality is very good, the leather soft and waxy with a great smell. I'm 5 ft 10'' 10.11st and ordered a medium which fits perfectly. Mine came with a cotton interior and a removable thermal liner. All armour is easily accessible. All in all I'm super happy with both service and garment and would wholeheartedly recommend.

Paul Mas: Outstanding quality

This jacket is absolutely stunning in every way, it simply ouzes quality in every way, it is so soft and comfortable and I can only imagine that it’s patina will become even better over time. Compliments my Z900RS perfectly. You must visit the shop it’s heaven for bikers.

John O'Flaherty: Mr

Perfect fit, I ordered a Medium.The quality is outstanding. The lining makes it nice & warm on the bike.

Hernando Ordonez: Ace Vintage Review

Beautiful jacket, very soft leather , well made, super quality. Feels heavy though, but that is for sure do to the thickness of the leather. I am 5ft 11" with a 39" chest. Got a Small and it fits like a glove. I wear it with out the linning and only a long sleeve T shirt under it. The sleeves could have been an inch longer and the neck opening is definitely too large. If you look at the pictures you Will see what I mean.

Richard Jaeggi: Tough and beautiful jacket.

Because Helton's jackets in size 6xl are not available in the Netherlands, I ended up with Motolegends. I had read on the internet that Helton's jackets are a bit small and considering I am 2 meters tall chest size 50 inches and 125kg, I ordered a 7xl. When I fitted the jacket it was much too large. I have contacted customer service and have been advised. 7xl & 8xl are for bigger bodies (special size lining) so I ended up with 6xl. (this due to the good and fast help from customer service) 6xl fits precisely and I am very happy with this beautiful jacket. Good and decent quality.
