Ok, so it’s not pink, but this has to be the cutest armored jacket I have ever seen: The Armadillo Scooter Wear Scarlet Mac. I heard about it thanks to Chelsea at Scoot Richmond, who wrote about it in her store’s newsletter. I wrote to ask her more about it, and she reports:
[It's] a jacket I’d DEFINITELY buy if I didn’t already have 2 red riding jackets, hehe.
ADORABLE. OMG. Everyone that puts it on looks amazing.
Sizing is much less generous than the parka. Apparently the parkas are made with Northern Europeans/English in mind, and the macintosh is more for the Southern European tiny girls. That applies to the weather that it is appropriate for as well. It does not have a removable liner, and as such is basically a spring/fall/wet summer day jacket. Definitely not warm enough for all winter use unless you were in a snowsuit underneath.
Decent waterproofing combined with ingenious button placement will keep the wearer dry in most weather. I wouldn’t test it out in a deluge or anything.
The length is REALLY nice, especially when combined with a wet seat.
The sleeves have thumbie holes in the knit cuff, hooray! The real sleeve of the jacket almost covers that bit up, but it’s a nice feature to keep cold air from blowing up your sleeves and such.
Did I mention that’s it’s adorable?
It’s available from the company in the UK for £112.00, or drop by Scoot Richmond and try one on. The Mac comes in a black men’s version, and Armadillo also makes a very cool armored scooter parka.
