We’ve custom built this hoodie from the ground up just for you, and we haven’t held back on the extras.

Firstly, we developed an entire new fit that was tailored to suit the modern day motorcyclist. Say goodbye to the short and ‘boxy’ hoodies you’re used to. The Akin Protective Hoodie has a tailored fit, with a bit of extra length in the sleeves to prevent them from riding up when you’re on 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.

This hoodie is fully lined with one of the world's strongest aramid fibres which is well known for its superior abrasion resistance and durability. We’ve also used a premium mesh liner for breathability and thrown in a water resistant internal pocket to stash your valuables.

Need more protection? We’ve designed the Protective Hoodie to be 100% compatible with premium, CE rated armour inserts. NEED ARMOUR? CLICK HERE.

Measure a hoodie that fits the way you want while on your bike. 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 go ALL the way to the seam join). Compare your measurement to the table above. If you're in between sizes, and want the fit to resemble our model, then we recommend you go for the smaller size.

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.

If you have any questions about this, or any of our products, please email us at You’ll be talking directly with someone who rides and has tested our gear, so they will be able to answer any of your questions!
