​​TO look as hot as James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause or Drew Barrymore in Charlie’s Angels is no mean feat. But rocking a sexy, biker look has been made easier thanks to an Aussie company that makes high quality leather jackets for on or off the bike or scooter.

Blackbird Motorcycle Wear was founded when its owners couldn’t find any motorcycle clothing that impressed them, so they decided to make their own line of fashionable biker gear to wear.

Thanks to high petrol prices and jam packed cities, motorbike and scooter sales have gone through the roof, which means more people than ever need good riding gear.

Blackbird Motorcycle Wear uses natural milled cowhide with thickness of 1.1-1.3mm on their leather products. Fashion garments found in retail stores often use fine, thin sheepskin, and although very soft, offers little protection for riding.

The gear is natural milled to soften the leather and is comfortable from the first time you put on one of their jackets. Natural milled leather is a process where the leather is put into a “dry drum,” with no chemicals and tumbled to soften the fibres within the skins which softens the leather.  This is completely natural and shows the pureness of the leather being used. Your jacket won’t need to be broken and will be super comfortable from the get-go.


The fabric range has a protective lining which increases abrasion resistance and has an insulative effect – meaning it keeps you warmer in winter and cooler in the heat of summer.

One rider who lived in Alice Springs,who is forced to ride in 43 degree celsius heat said they prefer the Blackbird Motorcycle Wear jackets over the summer range of motorcycle apparel from other brands.

Their very funky jackets are equipped to easily transition to casual wear, the minute you step off your bike. Whether you are hitting the pub, cafe or Sunday markets you’ll look your best no matter the occasion.

And if you’re not a motorcycle rider and are looking to invest in a high-quality, stylish leather jacket, you can be sure Blackbird Motorcycle Wear is always updating their looks to stay in touch with current fashion trends.

The range currently consists of men and women’s motorcycle jackets and scooter jackets in leather and fabric option, as well as an increasing range of accessories, including boots, T shirts and neck warmers.
