IHSB-C3J - Simmons Bilt/Iron Heart C3 Jacket

We love the C3 vests.

So we thought we should offer a jacket based on the same design.

15mm sheepskin.

These will be built to order and usually take 3-4 weeks from date of order to complete.

Options:  No kidney pockets.  No "shirt tail" back.  Sheepskin lined handwarmer pockets.

All variants USD1,000.

Web page coming soon, but drop me a PM if you can't wait.  I have one and live in it......

Wow...

I'd have to have the air conditioning turned up to the maximum all the time to wear this in LA though...  ;D

I'm curious about those kidney pockets...  What are they for?

Also, how long is your jacket Gilles?

Anything you want, but the intent mainly is so that your pillion passenger can get easy access to stuff....

Not sure what the length of mine is, it is with me in the Alps and I don't have a tape measure with me (my bad  ;) )

Loving the look and (probable) warmth of this jacket.

Any evo/broken-in shots of yours Giles, would be great.

I have worn mine a lot including a week of grovelling under cars fitting and unfitting snow chains in slush and snow in the Alps.  No discernable evo.  I'll get Sam to take a couple of pics late today....

I have one coming down from Simmons Bilt on Friday that I specced with a customer a few weeks ago when he popped in to see us (he saw mine, and had to get one).  I like the spec so much, I told the customer he may never see it.

Steve from Simmons Bilt phoned me late last night to tell me how amazing it had turned out and he also had almost stolen it....

Thanks G.  Looks bad ass and even more supple.  Please do shoot some shots of the custom jacket due on Fri!
