The Nyla Griz

  • Adapted from an early 1950s women’s D pocket jacket, this jacket calls back the history of motorcycling when women would wear high-waisted leather pants and D pocket jackets and ride in post war bike clubs.  These iconic women were the inspiration of this classic design. The Nyla Griz is based on the short Nyla pattern, which is authentic to the 1930s and 40s originals. Current jackets are finished with either Talon two way zippers or old stock Lightning zips.

    The Nyla Griz adds cow fur Grizzly panels and a red Japanese chambray liner, two features which we believe enhance the aesthetic and functional characteristics of the jacket. There are very few heritage Grizzly jacket models available on the market for women, and this release aims to correct that issue with rugged flair.

    The Nyla Griz is available here in Black Canadian Bison, with the Japanese red chambray liner. All other leather and liner combinations, as well as additional customization, are available for custom order.

    Please note that there is significant variance in the colour of hair-on hides, and no two jackets will be exactly alike. Make sure to contact us if you’d like to make a request for a specific hair-on look.
