I've been riding for about 7 years now, but never found a suitable jacket that I liked. Until now... (thanks again, kiya!) I thought I'd feature a few bits of the black Mulholland Master that may not have been shown online. First up, the two lower front pockets and back pocket are tall, but fold over when closed. Great feature for keeping contents clean/dry. You'll also notice that there is extra stitching to reinforce around the snaps.
The right chest pocket also has a Conmatic zipper- perfect for something, like a phone, that needs a little extra protection.
The two snaps on the cuffs are perfectly placed, in my opinion. It's nice to tighten up the cuff while riding to prevent any cold air from sneaking up.
The jungle cloth is ridiculously heavy. The jacket is about as heavy and a challenge to put on as a typical cowhide motorcycle jacket. The color is so rich on the black MM.
And, the fit. Overall, it pretty much fits me like a glove, which I'm happy about. I don't want anything too roomy or constricting when I'm riding. I could probably fit some light armor underneath it if I wanted, but 90% of my riding is around town, so I'm not too worried. I'll probably forgo the belt and throat latch if I'm going to wear it casually.
It was warm enough (well, 45-50F) to put the jacket through the paces yesterday. I did a short canyon ride nearby, and then took it out on the open road a bit. While my legs froze, my upper body was plenty warm, even at 55mph. The jungle cloth did well...
All in all, the MM is way over-engineered, in a good way. Christophe really knew what he was doing when he designed this jacket. The cut is somewhat slim for a typical motorcycle jacket, but there is room where it counts to allow for plenty of freedom of movement. I'm looking forward to wearing it on some long rides once it warms up a little more.
