Talking IXS Motorcycle Jackets at AIMExpo

Ryan from IXS tells us all about the Baldwin Jacket: their new textile moto jacket

IXS is a company that's very well known in Europe and has been gaining more and more traction over here in the states. Their gear has proven the test of time across the pond, not it's time to see how it does in the American market. The Baldwin jacket is one of their "Vintage" styles, in that it is not as branded, and has more of a classic look than some of the other, more technical textile jackets.
