Since 1974 - Vanson Leathers

Since 1974

Founded in 1974, Vanson is one of the leading American manufacturers of custom motorcycle leather jackets. Why Leather? Leather is one of the oldest continuously used material known to man and has never been improved on as a protective clothing material.

So, when Vanson built its first bike jacket back in 1974 with an eye toward improved performance and enhanced comfort, we looked back first to acknowledge the legacy. It’s naïve, after all, to think that one can have a clear vision of what could be without putting it into historical perspective. From this starting point we developed our guiding principles.

Hand Built. Made to last. An insistence on highest quality materials, starting with our secret proprietary tanning and leather finishing. Then, cut and sewn by hand in our workshop in Fall River, MA, USA. If you want “Industrial Strength”, don’t settle for anything less than a Vanson.

We will continue to listen to our customers and design our jackets based on their needs.
