Customer Reviews for Merlin Yoxall Wax Textile Jacket - Black
This jacket felt so comfortable from the minute I slipped it on and worth every penny, I went for the XL and I'm 6'2", 42" chest and 16 stone, I wanted a bit of extra room as I like to wear a jumper in the winter and if touring wear a strapped back and kidney protector, fits perfectly and I have all the poppers on arms and waist done up as I like them to be as snug as possible, loads of pockets, removable lining, lining is lovely. Plenty of ventilation for the summer, looks fab with a nice set of tan gloves too!Read more
Brilliant jacket but yet to be truly tested.
It's the summertime at time of purchase/review. Worn if for over 100 miles so far. 3XL for my 46 inch chest and I'm 6.1. Fits great. There is a draw cord which you can sinch in the waistline due to the jacket not being fitted. The thermal liner has come out due to you getting very warm very quickly. I'm sure it'll be awesome for the colder months. With the events open above both chest pockets and at the rear behind the armpits are great at drawing air thru the jacket. It has been used in heavy rain but the light stuff just ran off due to the coating. All round good jacket.Read more
Exactly as described, all the features work as described. At a bargain price, as the merlin have a new version called edale. This jacket is brilliantRead more
A really good product. Plenty of pockets and nice and warm too. I'm a key worker on a nightshift so it has kept me cosy on the sometimes frosty trip home across the moor in the early mornings. It has also kept me dry on a soggy 200 mile motorway run. Vents are good for airflow and its cool with the lining removed. It could maybe do with a rear pocket for maps but that's just something I miss from my previous jacket. I'm a skinny 6'1" and the large is sized just right. Very happy with this jacket, I'll be looking for some matching trousers soonRead more
Just what I needed
Just like the old Barbour and belstaff jackets I have had since the sixties. Comfortable ,light, wind proof and efficient. I removed the armour to improve the fit and comfort, much better but this is of course a personal choice. Good quality and good value. If you can, try on before you buy, they are a close fit with the thermal liner attached.Read more
Top company, Top jacket
Excellent, fast service and delivery as always with sportsbikeshop, merlin Yoxall jacket is superb quality (better than my Belstaff in my opinion) and looks really good, very happy all roundRead more
Used the jacket for the last month on my daily commute of about an hour in temps down to about -2 and also in the rain, kept me dry and warm and looks great.Read more
Pretty good but not perfect
Only ridden in it a few times and overall I'm pleased with it. Definitely a step up from the £90 Weise I still have but not perfect. So the good. Quality of construction seems excellent. The lining is nice, but is out at this time of year. The strap/dome at the neck is better than the Weise's strap/velcro; won't wear out. The domes are easy to pop open/close and I'm good with that. Only been out in a light shower so far and not a drop of water got in anywhere. Might get a proper test on that front later this week. :o( And the not-so-good. The sleeves are a little short - certainly this XL Merlin's are shorter than my L's Weise. But then I am 6'4" with long arms. The cuffs, having dome stops, fit at fixed points so aren't as snug as the Weise's velcro ones, and let in a little air as a result. Grabbing the next dome helps but is a little pinched. The wax coating seems waterproof but does feel oily (who'd have thought?) so be careful where you lay it down. I notice my bike's seat is a little greasy now from the back of the jacket. You have been warned. Still, it looks great, fits well (barring the fractionally short sleeves), seems waterproof and... I like it. Another inch on the sleeves and it'd be 5*.Read more
Snug as a bug in a rug
Fantastic jacket. Really comfortable, fits perfectly and I've been riding with just a short sleeve shirt underneath and stayed nice and warm, which I guess is due to the fact that the jacket material is really windproof. Good size pockets and the quality of the material, zips and poppers is excellent.Thanks to Sportsbikeshop for pointing me in the direction of this jacket as one of the suggestions to suit what I was looking for.Read more
Quality and strength
I knew this jacket was quality before I even put it on by the weight of it. This is a real bikers jacket. Not for poncing about town with, its made for the British weather. I got caught in one of those summer downpours, talk about water off a ducks back, bone dry I was. Not had a chance to try in really cold weather but I have no concerns going by the feel and performance so far. Ordered the Large going by the size chart and had to send it back for XL. pain in the backside there, so points off Sportsbikeshop for that.Read more
