About Us

We're on a mission to make the best looking, most protective gear you can get.
At Tobacco Motorwear Company, we believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for safety. We're dedicated to creating premium quality motorcycle gear in classic styles that look awesome on and off your bike, while providing protection where you need it most.

Quality Built to Last
We aren't into the "fast fashion" thing. We have always used the best materials available and make products that get better with age. From Cone Mills and Japanese Selvedge Denim to genuine Dupont Kevlar. We stand behind all of our products because we take the time to make them right. 

Made by Craftsmen in the USA and Skilled Partners Worldwide
All of Tobacco's protective apparel is made in downtown Los Angeles. Some companies make nothing in the USA, others make the bulk of their products overseas. We make most of our products here and only choose to import items that are simply done better elsewhere. Always ensuring our manufacturing partners are ethical and up to producing the quality required by Tobacco.

A Personal Experience
With so much of our shopping happening online today, Tobacco is dedicated to giving you a great customer experience. You can reach us via email, or DM us on social media, or even call in. If we don't know the answer we will figure it out. From our viral videos, to our special product launches, to our podcast, you will get access to a unique community that loves life on two wheels. 

Legacy of BLDRs
This company exists because of our customers and we never forget it. In 2014 we launched our first moto-jeans on Kickstarter, 501 backers put their faith in us and brought Tobacco to life. We still recognize their support with the title BLDR (builder) and keep a dog tag with each of their names on a special board in our headquarters. When you support this company or our sister company Pack Animal (we make damn good bags too) you become one of our BLDRs, we thank you and promise to continue to build our companies with you in mind. 

Meet our sister company, Pack Animal
Pack Animal launched on Kickstarter in 2016, and specializes in making the highest quality backpacks and bags in small batches using the best materials and craftsmanship. Thousands of people came to love the brand for their attention to quality and customer service.

Early in 2020, the owners of Pack Animal decided to close shop, for good, to pursue other interests. We had always been fans of Pack Animal and wanted to see it live on. The Tobacco team stepped up to re-launch Pack Animal and run it alongside Tobacco Motorwear. We know our customers value quality and attention to detail, and we hold Pack Animal to those same standards. Our brands complement each other and we think you will love Pack Animal too.
