Belstaff ladies Trialmaster wax cotton jacket in cardinal red (BEL1055)

The Trialmaster is, of course, an old favourite. It's a classic, belted, four pocket jacket based very closely on the style of jacket that was made popular by trials riders in the fifties and sixties. It was worn by factory test riders as well as competition riders like Sammy Miller and Bud Edkins. Steve McQueen often wore a Belstaff like this although not, obviously, on the 1964 ISDT, when he wore a Barbour. Che Guevara also famously wore a Trialmaster on his South American adventure that was written about in his famous Motorcycle Diaries.
This jacket is made from 6-ounce wax cotton and incorporates a waterproof, seam-sealed membrane made from a material known as Miporex. The outer layer is wax cotton which is water resistant but not really waterproof, and whilst no motorcycle jacket can ever lay claim to being 100% waterproof, the Trialmaster is undoubtedly an excellent and dependable jacket.
All the pockets on the jacket have waterproof flaps. You get an internal pocket. The neck and cuffs are adjustable, and the shoulders and elbows both have quilted patches over the base wax cotton outer for added abrasion resistance.

This is a beautiful looking coat. It has an extra quilted lining for colder days or you can zip it out for warmer. I took out the shoulder and elbow pads as I’m not using it for bike wear. Lovely rich colour too.
