Developed especially for motorcycle police, the Modesto Police Jacket features crash-protection armor at the shoulders, elbows and back. Explicitly designed to fit the rider on his bike, the body of the jacket is cut short and uses hang-down belt loops to secure the jacket to the duty belt.

These hang-down belt loops are secured with snaps to the inside-bottom facing of the jacket. A need for this design was originally expressed by the Modesto Police Department, where functional and quick holster access was required, combined with a very clean and crisp uniform look when on duty.

It gets hot in Modesto, so this design maximizes protection with good looks and at the same time reduces the bulk associated with traditional leather police jackets. To further offset the heat, we included our patented RamAir Sleeve Vent System which scoops and passes air from inside the elbow up towards the armpit area, without the sleeve billowing, or the elbow armor shifting out of position.

It can also get cold in Modesto... so there are snaps on the inside facing to accommodate the insulated Vanson Streamliner reversible vest, and a windflap behind the main zipper. For night-time riding, the 3M reflective piping across the back and down the sleeve outseams provides additional safety. The Vanson unit-number is stamped on a pen holder set onto the left front facing. Snap-down shoulder epaulets provide a handy spot to secure a radio microphone. Twin badge-holder grommets are set into a protector patch sewn onto the left chest. This is one jacket that will serve and protect for many years.

Selected skins are gently tumbled for extra softness
and a slight pebble look. Milling brings the grain up
making the natural markings a little more pronounced.
Garments made of this leather will require very little
breaking-in time as the leather is soft and supple right
