    The Vanson Philosophy

    No Compromises

    The quest for excellence and perfection never ends.  We continue to create a new standard with every Vanson Product.  Every Vanson product is as unique as your own bike.  Our workers make sure that your jacket has the fit and the finish that will distinguish you from the crowd. Perhaps that is why you can spot a Vanson garment in a crowd of hundreds. And, we will continue to make the most innovative and unique products for years to come. Your investment in a genuine Vanson will make even more sense in 10 years: you'll still be wearing it!

    That is what we call "heirloom quality" garments.

    That is the heart and soul of Vanson.
