Leather jacket with a retro urban look

The Modeka Bad Eddie is a chic leather jacket with a retro-urban look. How does it fare in the first test?

Fabian Dresler


As a versatile leather jacket in a retro urban look with thick thermal lining and a “hoodie insert” – i.e. hood (both can be removed separately) – the Bad Eddie is particularly suitable for cool days and keeps you above average warm. The thick cowhide is very supple and comfortable to wear. The narrow cut holds the protectors firmly in place on the shoulders and elbows.

Partly also suitable for summer

There is a compartment for the appropriate back protector, which should definitely be retrofitted. Without a thermal lining, the leather jacket is also suitable for summer, even if not for extreme heat. The perforation is limited to the arm area, and the ventilation zips on the front are rather small.

They are also a little fiddly to open with gloves. In the pockets (three outside and two inside) there is enough space for the essentials – smartphone, keys and wallet can be easily stowed away behind smooth-running zippers. However, thick wallets quickly create unsightly and unpleasant bumps. Modeka Bad Eddie obviously imagines it in combination with motorcycle jeans. The jacket can be connected to it with a loop. In addition to brown, it is also available in black and dark brown.

Noticed positively: Comfortable, safe to wear

Noticed negatively: Not good in extreme heat

Sizes: S to 4XL

Price: 299.90 euros

MOTORRAD verdict: 4.5 stars out of a possible 5


The Modeka Bad Eddie impressed in the test with its chic look and good wearing comfort. On very hot days, however, the retro leather jacket is the wrong companion.
