High quality leather jacket in blouson-style with Level-5 cut-protection. Every jacket is handmade and meets the highest demands.

In spite of the Level-5 strengthening the jacket is very comfortable to wear. With its weight of only 2000 g the jacket is only slightly above the weight of a normal leather jacket.
On the outside are flap pockets to the left and the right with a hidden welt pocket for the hands. In the left pocket is (hidden from the pocket flap) another small pocket.

What are HPPE cut resistant fibers?
HPPE is compared with conventional aramid fibers (which are also used for the manufacture of protective clothing) 40 times higher tensile strength. With respect to carbon fiber or glass fiber tensile strength 60 times and 15 times more tensile strength than steel. Due to its UV stability, low ductility and high cut resistance it offers ideal conditions for processing in protective articles. Therefore, it is used among others in the manufacture of helmets, shields / clothing and armor.
Level-5 – what is that?
To determine the cut resistance of a fabric, a razor blade is used to cut into the material. The more pressure can be applied to the razor blade without damaging the fabric, the higher the cut resistance: a small cut resistance has a level of 1, the highest possible level is 5.
