Buy Corazzo Design jacket - get one free

In an a move to make way for new gear, Corazzo has put an unprecedented offer on the public plate: A
free armored riding jacket will be given away to every buyer of a new jacket. Buyers have a choice between the Max or Hoody jacket, an armored Cordura jacket appropriate for moderate to cold-weather
riding.

The remaining inventory will be given away until the stock in the Portland warehouse is gone. Promotion Details are available on Corazzo's website HERE:

You may have noticed in one of our previous posts about Corazzo that when checking out some of their gear at a local Vespa shop we noticed that some of the Corazzo stuff was made in Canada.

Corazzo has some fun and does some abrasion tests

Seems like the folks over at Corazzo not only make some stylish scooter (and motorcycle) performance gear but they've got a wild side and like to have some fun too it seems!

Watch this clip and check out how their gear holds up when it's drug across the pavement. Impressive.

Corazzo is a company we've mentioned before, that's based in Portland but does have some of their products made right here in Canada.

As summer heats up Corazzo brings thoughts of cooler times

Corazzo, a maker of some fine looking scooter and motorcycle garments is thinking ahead to cooler times and just came out with a couple Limited Edition "Club Sweaters." I don't want to think of cooler months just yet, but these sweaters should make riding in the cooler evenings and late summer days more enjoyable.

We told you a little bit about Corazzo before, they're a Portland Oregon based company but many of their products are made in Canada and available at finer Vespa dealerships.

They've got the "Rocker" which is made of custom dyed American made wool, features an extra wide waist band to keep it from riding up when you're on the road. Some other nice touches are the Napa leather letters spelling Corazzo across the chest, large leather elbow patches, a zip up collar that beats back the cold mornings, and thumb holes to ensure the sleeves stay tucked in."

Then there's the "Tricolore" which is designed in a raglan style, with sleeves knitted lengthwise for a comfortable fit. The zip collar and thumb holes keep out the cold. There's a small Corazzo chest patch and tri color stripes knit on the right sleeve.

For ordering details check out Corazzo's website. The Tricolore is listed at $249USD while the Rocker is $275USD.

Portland, US company - Italian name - made in Canada!

During our latest trip to the local Vespa dealership we came across some pretty cool stuff. More on that in future, but for now we'll tempt you with a riding apparel company called Corazzo.

Trusty Google Translator indicates that Corazzo is Italian for armour. Seems fitting for a company making riding apparel and accessories. If all the skulls and crossbones gear at your local shop have you wondering if there's anything a little more stylish that will keep you looking stylish AND be protected, well - Corazzo is a company you might want to check out.

According to the Corazzo company website:

"Corazzo is proud to design and manufacture our garments and accessories in North America (California and Oregon and Canada), sourcing our raw materials from companies that manufacture in the US, whenever and wherever possible.

Corazzo uses the only the highest quality materials, like real Cordura~ fabric from DuPont, the best Scotchlite reflective material from 3M, YKK Zippers and armor from Knox, the world's leader in impact protection for two-wheeled riders.
"

We've not had the opportunity to test any of the products, seeing as we've just discovered the company, but they do appear to be well made stuff that makes use of quality materials. The friendly shop owners brewed me a coffee while I had a look at all the treasures in the shop. I'm told the Corazzo Under-Hoody is particularly irresistible. Certainly looks like it'd be comfortable on a chilly morning ride!
