Details

Nuanced improvements and lighter weight material make the NEW A.D.1. Light Pants an excellent choice for everyday riding, as well as skiing, camping and other outdoor activities. The fully seam taped, unlined HT200 Denier Nylon GORE-TEX® jeans-cut pant feature full length separating side zips with inner and outer weather flaps to help the pants go on and off fast and keep rain and wind out. Other details include: A diamond gusset in the crotch for greater sitting comfort; An inner gusset behind the front fly improves water resistance; The knees have a greater bend around a larger radius (than the Darien pant knees), allowing more freedom of movement; The Scotchlight® reflective ankle tab loop strips are radial, for a natural and secure adjustment around the calf and lower leg; The front pockets have hook and loop secured cover flaps so items inside are secure. (And you won't lose your change or bike keys when the pants are laid over the back of a chair...); A double layer of fabric at the seat for added abrasion protection; A vertical zippered pouched cargo pocket in on top of the right thigh and a horizontal opening pocket o the top of the left thigh. Integrated side hook and loop for easy attachment of optional hip pads. Dozens of other nuances...Available in even waist sizes, 30-44 regular and long. An Aerostich Money Belt (#1854) is included with these pants. Black, Grey or Tan.

Darien vs. Darien Light
Darien AD1 Utility Pants Comparison

Which Pants? Darien vs. AD1 vs. Utility...Regular vs. Light

AD1 pants fit me a little better than Darien pants. Their rise is less, so the waistband rides a little lower, and it’s slightly curved, which I also like better. The AD1’s included belt is a 1.5" Aerostich money belt, versus the stronger 1.5" side-release-buckled belt on the Darien pants. And compared to the Darien pant the AD1’s knees are ‘bent’ a couple of degrees more, which is nice for bikes with a little more rear-positioned footrests. The radius of this bend is a little bigger, too, so there is a bit more space for knee pads. Darien pants fit and feel a lot like Khaki's or regular pants and AD1's fit and feel a little more like jeans.

See the comparison...

Up to about 70ºf I wear my AD1 Lights over regular jeans or khaki pants. When it’s warmer they go over Aerostich cotton riding shorts…which we sew right here, too. The new Utility Pants fit like the AD1's, and have all the function, protection and styling of those, but without the full-length side-zips, belt, or reflective on the leg adjustment tabs. You can slip them on and wear them all day, whether logging hundreds of miles or just riding across town to run errands. Remove the TF3 kneepads and these super-tough pants are practical as everyday off-bike wear, too.

"The Darien and AD1 pants fit a little different…The Darien's fit like khaki 'Docker'-type chinos and dress pants. They have a straight waistband and a higher rise than jeans. The AD1's have a lower rise and a slightly conical waistband that is angled a bit lower in front. So these fit more like old-school denim jeans. I slightly prefer the AD1's fit."
