"My Mongolia jacket is my favourite jacket for warm days, and not so warm days with a layering system.
It is under-stated, in a non-'look at me, I'm in a race' kind of way, whilst offering great protection and great durability.
I wear it as an outer, armoured layer, or as an armoured layer with a warm mid layer and a waterproof jacket on cooler days.
It's very versatile."

CE EN17092 certified AA for motorcycle use.
You want maximum ventilation, maximum protection, minimum weight and complete freedom of movement when riding your bike? So did Lyndon Poskitt for his 2016 and 2018 bids to win the Dakar Rally's infamous Malle Moto class. But, he loved his neckbrace compatible race jacket so much that he asked us for a non-neckbrace version to ride when he wasn’t racing. The Mongolia Mesh Jacket was born.
Just like the Atacama Mesh Jacket the body of the Mongolia is constructed from a low snag military grade mesh that allows an almost completely free flow of air around your torso and arms to keep you cool when the going gets hot. And for crashes? The same 1000D Ballistic Nylon ‘6-6’ panels in all key abrasion/impact zones. Crash tested on camera multiple times by Mr Poskitt himself! The Atacama version of this piece was also one of the only jackets to complete the recent 2018 Kalahari Rally (3rd Overall / 1st Malle Moto) without tearing on the deadly Bostwana thorn bushes.
Ensuring the perfect fit (with or without a bladder) are four strategically placed stretch panels located around the shoulders and upper arms giving you superb unrestricted movement.
The jacket includes Forcefield Isolator Level 2 back, shoulder and elbow protectors for maximum protection. This armour can also be removed should you prefer to use an armoured base layer instead.
This jacket is perfect for single or multi-day rides where weight, temperature control, protection and visibility are all key considerations.
NOTE: This jacket was updated in 2020 as part of our CE EN17092 upgrade. These updates included:
Addition of back, shoulder and elbow armour
Adjustment of under arm fabric
Addition of wrist cuff straps
