If there was a hall of fame for motorcycle jackets, Belstaff’s Trialmaster jacket would surely be in it. Belstaff introduced the jacket in 1948, and it has been immensely popular since then, becoming one of the best-selling jackets of all time.
Champion racers like Sammy Miler and Phil Reed have worn the jacket while competing. On his epic motorcycle journey across South America, Ernesto “Che” Guevara also wore one. Even Hollywood icons and stars have been fans of the jacket; most notably motorcycle racer and actor Steve McQueen.
The new version of the jacket has all of the same features that made the original so iconic, and is cut somewhat fuller. The jacket is constructed from Belstaff’s triple hand-waxed cotton fabric that is also water-repellent. The jacket can be re-waxed if needed and will only improve with use and over time.
To help keep any rain and wind out, the jacket features a throat latch and cuffs with triple snaps. Lining the inside of the jacket is Belstaff’s heritage check fabric, which has lined Belstaff jackets since 1948. Another benefit of the check cotton lining is that it dries quickly when wet.The Trialmaster jacket is available for women and men and is a part of the Belstaff Legends Collection. The Legends Collection is a line of 7 jackets that carries on the heritage and history of Belstaff.
