The Highway 21 Difference
Quality control is never ending. Not only does inspection take place in multiple points throughout the manufacturing process but it continues once the
products have landed in our facilities. Checking size charts, logo placement, and all other details are just part of the receiving process to ensuring they
meet our high standards. Here are just a few examples.
Highway 21 goes to great lengths to use only the very best manufacturing facilities. And the machinery that helps assemble our products? Constantly
being updated. Our rock solid commitment to precision and durability requires multiple quality checkpoints during the manufacturing process but
doesn't stop there. Once the products have landed in our shipping facility they're checked again to make certain that nothing goes out the door that
hasn't earned the Highway 21 label.
For the majority of Highway 21 products it all starts with the leather. So we searched the globe for the very best leather available and, in doing
so, found out that hide is what matters most. After scrutinizing dozens upon dozens of tanneries, we found what we were looking for - fully
drum-dyed 3 to 4 ounce hides. These hides absorb color more deeply and stand up to more thorough conditioning. The result is leather that, not only
will last a lifetime, but will gain texture and beauty as it ages.
They say it's what's on the inside that counts, and what's inside Highway 21 jackets is Hydraguard - a durable, breathable, windproof and waterproof
protective membrane. This tough, yet soft and porous, membrane allows body moisture to evaporate while at the same time blocking wind and moisture.
So no matter how extreme the conditions in which you ride, our jackets are up to the challenge.
In today’s world safety cannot be stressed enough, both on and off the bike. Highway 21 introduces the CCP (Concealed Carry Pocket) for those of us
who have taken the proper legal process to obtain a concealed carry permit. This very large pocket features an assistant barrel band, and a Velcro®
backing for use with a hook side Velcro holster. It will accommodate even those who choose to carry a full size option and has a closure snap for
security. If or when it matters we have the perfect pocket for personal protection.
We are riders at Highway 21 and spend as much time cruising asphalt as anyone. That’s why when it comes to safety we choose to support all of our products
with the finest of C E protection. America has adopted two European standards covering "motorcyclists' protective clothing against mechanical impact" -
EN1621-1 and EN1621-2. EN1621-1 covers any body part protection except back/spine. EN1621-2 covers back/spine. Both standards assess the performance of
protective devices by measuring the force transmitted through it when impacted by a falling mass. We never take a shortcut when it comes to armor,
protection is always our priority. Bottom line if or when you wreck there is nothing better than C E protection. Always ride safe, always ride prepared.
