Best Harley-Davidson Gear to Give as Gifts

Posted by Oakland H-D Contributor on Dec 17, 2021 11:01:24 AM

For all of the riders in your life the perfect gift might be upgrading their gear selection. While most riders have some tried and true gear set up - they might not even know they could be more comfortable with some updated gear. Check their sizes next time they set their gear down and come in to let our MotorClothes specialists help you find the perfect gift!




Nothing beats a new jacket. Simply, nothing. While most riders have a tried-and-true leather motorcycle jacket - try spicing up their wardrobe with a new twist on an old classic. While many styles exist, this Trenton Mesh Riding Jacket offers protection from sun, wind and bug guts while allowing air flow to keep a rider cool.



Riding boots are essential for looking great but also for keeping your feet firmly planted on the ground. For the rider, think water-resistant, sturdy sole and ankle coverage. Think about easy on-off access with a side zipper. Not sure which one? Let our experts help.



Every rider needs a selection of gloves. Different pairs of gloves are designed for hot weather riding, cold weather riding or wet weather riding. Motorcycle gloves have pre-curved fingers and special stitching to make sure the rider is comfortable while riding and can grip the handlegrips securely.



Most riders don't realize how worn their helmet has gotten over the years. A helmet is the single-best safety equipment for every rider and should be replaced every 4-6 years. Buying a new helmet can be a challenge because of fit. Make sure to note the size and brand of their current helmet. And note that helmets cannot be returned so it's important to get it right the first time. If you aren't sure, purchase a gift card so they can find the perfect fit for themselves.
