The Clubber Jacket is the ace in the hole of Spidi’s line of classic leather jackets. The buffalo hide that differentiates the Clubber from other jackets is tanned and processed by Spidi in Italy. In the moto realm, buffalo is noted for its stout resistance to abrasion and supple hand. Inside the jacket, the Clubber is lined with cotton and given an “Italian” tartan print. Subtle Warrior Lite elbow and shoulder armor provide CE-rated impact protection, and the jacket can accept a Warrior back protector (available separately). With this unique combination of Spidi style, multi-colored accent stitching at the arms and buffalo leather, “cool” is the Clubber Jacket’s one and only setting.
Leather and Cotec wax cotton combine to create a uniquely styled, highly protective jacket. The vest portion of the jacket is leather, while the sleeves are the Cotec technical wax cotton. These features combined with a full suite of D3O armor make sure you stay abrasion resistant as well as impact protected. A removable thermal gilet ensures you can stay warm when the temperatures drop, while the YKK antique effect zippers tie together the garment.

An embroidered Merlin badge is found at the bicep, right between the included shoulder and elbow impact armor.
The first thing you will notice about the Hixton is how unique the leather looks and feels.
