The Spidi Clubber jacket is the Italian brand’s latest retro leather ensemble, providing stylish looks with the utmost protection for fashion-forward riders. The clubber wouldn’t be out of place on the latest garage built café, cruiser or classic standard motorcycle with the jacket’s tasteful design and vintage aesthetic.
Where the Clubber stands out from the crowd is with its understated, classic charm and additions like the multi-colored stitching accents. A tasteful vintage Spidi embroidered patch on each arm ties the whole jacket together.
Your first line of defense is soft, pliable buffalo leather tanned and processed in Italy by Spidi that will provide plenty of abrasion resistance. Spidi also includes CE Level 1 armor in the elbows and shoulders. As is often the case with stylish jackets, a back protector is optional, but a Warrior L2 model is available from Spidi for $74.90.
Spidi is aiming at the quintessential motorcycle jacket look with the Clubber, so venting is used sparingly. A single zipper vent resides on the chest. As long as you’re in the wind, you should be fine in moderate temperatures and it’ll fare better than textile gear when the temperatures dip.
A non-removable lush tartan liner is definitely pleasing to the senses and a zippered stash pocket is included, capable of holding your cell phone or other important items. Two handwarmer pockets round out the storage capabilities. If you want to extend your riding into the winter months, optional thermal or rain liners can be popped in for $69.90 and $89.90.
Heavy-duty YKK zippers are found throughout the Clubber and importantly, leather button flaps prevent the zipper tabs from rattling annoyingly.
At $549.90 the Spidi Clubber does cost a pretty penny, but then again, who am I to argue about the price of looking cool.
