Fast Company Barracuda Jacket

Jan 01, 2007 View Comments by

The venerable black leather motorcycle jacket is justly revered as a fashion icon; but it could use a little updating, too. And rolling up at a top resort in a ratty old biker jacket doesn’t cut it anymore.
So for my Palm Springs Shamrock Tour® this year, I wore Fast Company’s sharp-looking Barracuda jacket in black with green and white trim. As well as providing excellent weather protection in everything from hot desert winds to unseasonable snow, the Barracuda jacket blended in with the tuxes and gowns at the Wyndham Palm Springs Resort.
The Barracuda is made from heavy cowhide using genuine YKK zippers. Two outer zip pockets and the one-zip and one-snap inner pockets hold your stuff, and six zip-closure vents let your body breathe. There’s also a zip-in quilted liner for cooler climes. Sleeves are curved for comfortable riding, while multi-density foam pads protect your elbows and back.
