Helstons Bill jacket in brown Product Information

The Helstons Bill jacket is fashioned very much in the mould of the classic, American, WW2, A2 flying jacket. In fact, it was we at Motolegends who took the idea for this jacket to Helstons. Twice a year we visit them in Paris to view the new season’s collection. On this particular occasion we had taken along with us a number of jackets from other brands for them to look at. One was an old favourite of ours, the goat hide Spidi Top Gun, Helstons reckoned they could beef it up, and turn it into a tougher, more rugged, biking jacket. And that’s what the Bill is. It’s made from a stronger cowhide, and comes with both a fixed, waterproof membrane and a removable, thermal liner. You get adjusters at the neck, the sleeve ends and at the hem. And, as is always the case with Helstons, CE armour comes as standard in the shoulders, elbows and back. It is much more of a proper biking jacket than the Spidi, but whereas the Spidi was faithful to the original in that it featured French rib at the cuffs and hem, the Helstons has leather cuffs and a leather band at the waist. The Bill is a cool-looking jacket that’s going to work just as well on the bike as off. The leather is beautiful, making the Bill extremely comfortable to wear, but it wants for nothing from a motorcycling and practicality perspective.
