In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Harley-Davidson is paying a perfect tribute with their Pink Label Collection. Ladies can choose to go more casual with the variety of shirts, hoodies, and pullovers from the collection or focus more on riding gear like the 3-in-1 Mesh Jacket and Ultra-Light J02 Half Helmet.

The 3-in-1 Mesh Jacket is a great way to show support of those battling breast cancer in a functional and stylish way with the black mesh layered over pink to give the jacket a uniquely feminine look without being an in-your-face-girly pink riding jacket. While the mesh is stylish it is also functional in terms of it making the jacket lightweight and airy for those warmer rides; however, the mesh doesn’t limit it solely to warm weather. There is an included microfleece full-sleeve windproof hoodie that can be worn underneath in order to keep you warm for the cooler cruises.

This jacket also features two durable zippered pockets on the outside as well as one on the inside to keep your personal items safe and secure. Both the cuffs and the waist have adjustable Velcro tabs to ensure a perfect fit while the reflective piping on the waist, collar, and shoulders make sure you are more visible on your night cruise. A silver Harley-Davidson embroidery is set across the shoulders to subtly add the Harley touch. The mesh theme is continued with the interior polyester mesh body and sleeve lining while the body armor pockets at the elbows, back, and shoulders contribute to the safety option of adding body armor in those key areas.

The included microfleece, polyester hoodie is a great addition to this jacket because it will not only keep you warm under the mesh jacket without uncomfortably bunching up inside, but it can also be worn separately to give you a casual choice for when you’re off the bike. The thumbholes in the cuffs are also a plus that add to the overall comfort level. I have had it before where the thumbholes were too small and cut into the webbing of my thumb, but that is not the case with this jacket.

The hoodie also has kangaroo-style pockets for you to bury your hands in when it gets a bit chilly, and the hood has drawstrings that allow you to bundle up cozily. There is also a pink Harley-Davidson embroidery across the shoulders which gives the black jacket a nice touch of pink.

Also a subtle, yet impactful accent is the Pink Label medallion located on the right cuff on the hoodie and left hem of the mesh jacket, which further proves your loving support of women battling breast cancer.

This 3-in-1 Mesh Jacket retails for $185 and is available in a wide range of sizes within the Regular, Plus, Tall, and Petite categories.

Like the mesh jacket, the Women’s Pink Label Ultra-Light J02 Half Helmet is the perfect amount of feminine style with fantastic function. The dome of the helmet sparkles a faint pink with Harley-Davidson printed in pink on the right side of the removable visor. The shell is made of fiberglass and Spectra fiber in order to protect your head all while being extremely lightweight and meeting DOT requirements.

You can make sure the helmet is snug and comfortable with the Double D-ring chin strap as well as the removable interior dial adjustment mechanism at the back that allows you to adjust and secure the helmet comfortably around your head.

The interior lining is also removable, and therefore washable, liner is moisture wicking and anti-microbial so you can always make sure you are clean and dry. Another nice feature of this helmet is that it includes zip-off, removable speaker pockets that make it easy for you to either blast your favorite boy band or heavy metal grunge. Regardless of your music preference, these pockets are handy and are compatible with the P&A helmet headset.

Like the mesh jacket, the helmet has the Pink Label Collection medallion that shows your support for riders and women everywhere combatting breast cancer. The Ultra-Light J02 Helmet also comes with a J-Tech helmet bag for a bit of protection and easy carrying. You can get this helmet for $230 (although prices may vary at local dealerships).
