In 2005, we decided to make a SportRider-influenced jacket with a little more relaxed fit, lighter in weight, but with protective armor, and cut for a comfortable touring riding position.

We wanted to build a leather jacket that you would grab first on your way out the door. The result is the Drifter family. Today we offer these easy-to-wear styles in both men’s and women’s versions. A streamlined look meets functional modern technology.

Vanson’s leather Drifter Jacket has the classic center front zipper and two zipped hand pockets. Subtle-yet-substantial body armor uses our patented Floating Armor System which allows the rider to adjust protection level as needed for maximum comfort. Ventilation is via Vanson’s patented sleeve vents that maintain the diameter of the sleeves, with the jacket keeping its shape whether open or closed. Rear exit vents ensure smooth airflow. The Vanson Drifter will accept our insulated, reversible Streamliner. For a sleek look, comfort and safety, the Vanson Drifter will be the jacket you grab as you head out.
