The 2nd most common motorcycle injury in the US is road rash to the upper body. That's why we designed our Free Ridin’ Flannel to stop road rash in its tracks with reinforced aramid lining and removable CE-approved armor in the shoulder, back, and elbow areas. You don't need to choose between safety and style. Wear the Free Ridin' Flannel from the bike to the bar. 

Why riders choose our flannel:

  • Reinforced aramid lining to stop road rash.

  • Easily remove the CE armor for a smart, stylish look when you’re at home, in the office, or out on the town.
  • Adjustable cuffs on both wrists to avoid ‘wind flap’ and you’ll never have to deal with that annoying ‘cuff overhang’ while you ride.

      Size Medium

      I really love the look of this flannel. I got a size medium and I am 5’3”. It was an almost perfect fit since I am a bit wider. One thing I would like to add is that they do fold the flannel so the back armor stays slightly bent and it takes some time while wearing it to be flush to your back.

      Free riding flannel

      Love the new riding flannel. Fits a little small so I had to exchange for a larger size but the return process and customer service was a piece of cake and very easy. It breathes really well, the pads aren't too bulky and complement the jacket nicely. I would absolutely recommend. Just order a size larger. I'm about 215 but with broad shoulders, typically I wear an XL but went to an XXL and that fits perfect.

      Flannel Riding Shirt

      I bought a size larger than I normally wear (2XL) figuring the use of more clothing during the colder months. This turned out to be a great shirt for early spring and summer riding. There is air exchange while riding that keeps me cool in hot weather. The CE armor is a great idea, but I just hope we never have to need it. Thanks to the person who came up with this idea.
