Armadillo Scooter Wear is finally being sold in the states via Benchmark and Scooter Shop, and we couldn’t be happier. Similar to Belstaff and Sydney-based Dues Ex Machina, Armadillo understand that showing up to work in proper biking gear should not dampen style. Armadillo offers parkas, hoodies and Macintosh-style coats for men and women that come standard with elbow and shoulder body armor.


But Armadillo isn’t just using standard inserts. Instead, the British company is employing the amazingly supple and malleable d30 technology. An intelligent shock absorbing material, d30 allows for garments to retain complete freedom of motion that stiffens on impact, offering safety and shock absorption.

All jackets are designed with Mp3 pocket, headphone loops, underarm vents, windproof with fully taped seams as well as using at least 3000ml waterproof material that still allows for breathability.

While Armadillo’s armored pants, gloves and men’s Macintosh aren’t being offered on the American sites, we’re hoping that gets rectified. After watching the video tease us with a prototype MX back-protector, we’ll take what we can get for now.
