Introducing the new ‘Defender Motorcycle Hoodie’ from Akin Moto - We’ve taken your favourite casual hoodie, removed all the unnecessary stuff and hidden a truckload of protective and ‘moto-specific’ features inside.

First and foremost, this hoodie is designed to protect you. It’s fully lined with genuine DuPont™ Kevlar® fabric that provides very high levels of abrasion resistance.

Need more protection? The Defender Moto Hoodie is 100% compatible with premium, CE rated armour inserts (sold separately – check out the armour section on our store).

Need a secure place to store your valuables? We’ve hidden a water-resistant zipper pocket inside the front handwarmer pocket – you won’t have to worry about things falling out while you’re riding.

Hoodies are meant to comfortable… so we developed an entirely new ‘pull-over’ fit that works both on and off the bike. We also removed those pesky drawcords on the hood (who uses them anyway?) to prevent them slapping on the side of your helmet.

If you’re searching for the king of motorcycle hoodies, then look no further.

*If you plan on using back armour, we recommend going up one size* - The best way to find out your size is to measure a hoodie you already own, and that fits the way you want while on your bike (factoring in any garments you wish to layer underneath). Lay your hoodie flat on a table, and measure the chest, making sure to go from side seam to side seam (near the armpit like in the photo below). It's very important that you reach the seam join on each side, even if you have to bend a little around the sides of the jacket. Compare your measurement to the size chart above.

If you're unsure of your size, please EMAIL US at, especially if you are an international customer. We are here to help and will do whatever we can to make sure you order the right size.

Model in the photos is 6ft, 83kgs, has a 100cm chest and is wearing a size XL.

Saved My Skin (literally)

I came off my bike at quite a ‘speed’. Rolled a few times and slid for a fair few seconds… The hoodie held up really well, I managed to walk away with light road rash - the accident really shook me… I can honestly say without wearing this hoodie I’d have been minced… I have full confidence with this product and will be buying more gear to replace what I once wore. Thanks Akin Moto for keeping me safe - genuinely!

Eric, we're so glad to hear that you're ok after your accident and were able to walk away relatively unscathed. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us, and with other customers.

We're stoked to hear that our gear did its job and that it's given you confidence to replace it with more - we've already sent you a quick follow up email to make sure you're looked after and get you back on the bike ASAP.

Awesome gear :)

Wanted to give this hoodie a go as I have tried a few from other manufacturers and I really don’t like zip through hoodies this pullover style is the most comfortable and well made motorcycle hoodie I have tried and I love it . Can’t wait to enjoy some adventures in it and can’t wait to buy some more Akin gear. I can only say if you are on the fence just buy one.

Thanks for such a detailed review and positive recommendation Chris! We really appreciate it as a small brand!

Christopher Shinners
Absolutely love this hoodie!

Incredibly happy with this purchase! Very comfortable even with the armour inserted. Can't wait to purchase the alpha jacket and pants when I have a few extra dollars! Been recommending Akin moto to all my riding buddies

Thanks for the review Christopher, we're so stoked that you're loving your Defender Hoodie!

Amazing fit and style

So happy with the hoodie wanted something casual but was still going to give me the peace of mind while daily commuting by bike. 5’10 75kg went with a large fits armour well. Highly recommend.

Hi Saul, thanks for such a great review! We're so stoked to hear that the hoodie ticks all the boxes when it comes to protection as well as keeping the casual and comfortable look.

Incredibly good hoodie

I've had multiple jackets over the years but this is by the best one I've had, it looks like a normal hoodie but you're protected (and you actually feel protected).
Great product and I would recommend for everyone.

Thanks for the review Kai! We're really stoked to hear how much confidence the hoodie gives you in protection and thank you for recomnending it!
