    SIZING

    Ben wears a size M and his measurements are height 179cm / 5'11", chest 109cm / 43in.

    The best way to find out your size, is to measure a jacket you already own and that fits you well:

    1. Lay your jacket flat on a table.
    2. Measure across the chest making sure to measure from armpit to armpit.
    3. Compare your measurements to the table below.

    Our measurements are the size of the jacket, therefore if your jacket measurement is between two of our sizes, choose the larger size. If your measurement is the same as one of our sizes our jacket will be the same fit. Our jackets fit true to size, so we would normally advise purchasing your usual size. However, if you prefer to layer your motorcycle clothing, choose the size up as motorcycle jackets are thicker than lifestyle jackets.

    Looks good!

    I haven’t actually worn it riding yet but tried it on and it fits well, is comfortable and I’m looking forward to getting it out on the open road!

    Sahara freedom!

    Light and free! Even with the best armour in it, it’s still insanely light and allows complete freedom of movement. Totally warm, as it wind proof. Rode in 6 deg C without issue. Can wear a vest underneath and still not feel any restrictions. Now I’m having trouble wanting to wear any other jacket. I’m going to keep this one and sell the rest off. Finally, a jacket that matches the feeling I get from my bike.

    A cut above !

    They say seeing is believing ... but in this case wearing is believing. When I looked at the Sahara’s details online and saw some reviews I thought it seemed too good for the price point. Turns out IT IS!! I’ve been quite amazed by the quality, the fit, the style and the absolute comfort of this jacket. The sizing as per the chart is spot on. You barely feel the armour ( and it includes back armour which many jackets do not ). I have received numerous comments already about it’s styling and look whenever I have ridden in it. It is truly a cut above the competition.

    This jacket has now become my favourite. I was looking for something I could wear on and off the bike and wasn’t leather (as sometimes wearing a leather jacket off the bike feels a bit too flashy) and this works amazingly. Great style and quality. The armour isn’t annoying or that noticeable on or off the bike at all. I got the size small and was a bit worried before receiving as I usually order size medium or large for all my other clothes. But I’m happy I followed the sizing chart as the fit is great (I’m 6’2” 105cm chest). My partner loves it and said she wants one. Luckily there’s the matching women’s jacket so now I know what to get her for her birthday. Will definitely buy more from Blackbird.

    Style and substance

    Just back into bikes after decades 'in the wilderness' and the choices are bewildering. Fortunately my local shop – Schmokin', in Berrima, NSW – stocks Blackbird AND makes awesome coffee. The combination proved irresistible and I bought the Sahara; simply the most stylish piece of biking kit imaginable. Not only does it fit like it was made for me, it's comfortable, warm, practical and gets loads of comments – seriously. I haven't yet tried it in the rain, but it's my go-to jacket and seems to just get better with use. Highly recommend? You bet...
