We recently featured Hannah's style story on her Yamaha SR400 and perfectly coordinated look, and wanted to take a moment to show her well worn Vada Ranger by Roland Sands Design. All RSD motorcycle jackets for women are designed to be well worn and are the best around for a feminine silhouette with the protection of removable armour. Personally I have the Maven in Black and love it.
Expect extra room in the arms for the armour, broad shouldered women should get a fit for your shoulders rather than waist as the waxed canvas will eventually give and shape to your own body, but the shoulders won't widen. So it's best to ensure it doesn't cut off circulation to your arms, especially in the cooler months when you need more layers.
The older these get, the better they look, so for the price they're a great choice for the style conscious rider who doesn't want to compromise on safety. The Vada is a waxed canvas with plenty of pockets (very handy!!) inside and out, beautifully lined and tailored for feminine figures.
Heleana is a force of nature. Our Editor in Chief, the founder of In Venus Veritas and The Petrolette, and a co-founder of Rising Sun Workshop. Heleana shares her love of vintage cars, riding motorcycles, and (not-so-secretly) dreams of flying planes and piloting a riva aquariva (a la Sophia Loren) very fast through the canals of Venice. Supportive and connected, community is her lifeblood, and she is as real as they come.
