Details

In atrocious weather this will outperform whatever you now wear. It’s built for both hard everyday wear and the most extreme ‘no limit’ adventure and endurance riding situations. Whether you are heading across town or out across Siberia, this is the toughest and most reliable single-layer Gore-Tex Cordura textile jacket we make.
The Darien jacket is also the world’s first jacket made specifically for long-distance travelers and adventurers riders. And today, after more than 25 years of continuous detail improvements and careful refinements it still remains the world’s benchmark for technical armored abrasion-resistant rider’s jackets.
Sewing and seam-sealing the Darien’s unique single-layer construction is costly and difficult, so other similar-looking-on-the-outside riding jackets are not made this way. With a single-layer construction there can be no shortcuts...and sloppy workmanship cannot be hidden behind a lining. The systems used for positioning the TF impact armor systems and providing useable interior pockets is harder, too.
You’ll like the result of this extra effort…riding drier and being more comfortably across a wider temperature and climactic range. And it’s nice that the armor is easier to custom-position for fit, or remove and replace as required. Also, any emergency post-crash field repairs are a lot easier, too. (That's important if you’re somewhere far beyond remote…and the local weather is bad.)
The Darien isn’t an adapted winter outdoor fashion jacket. It’s a dedicated hard-as-nails protective system for your upper body that lets you ride in greater safety and comfort for a decade or more, regardless of harsh conditions. It’s made to be tougher, simpler, and ,pre practical, because that’s what you really need: Basic reliable stuff that always works.
Exclusive Darien jacket features include the tough abrasion-resistant 500 Denier Cordura® GORE-TEX® breathable/waterproof outer fabric, removable hard shell TF3 foam elbow and shoulder pads, and generous 3M Scotchlite™ reflective areas, and adjustable anti-flutter arm tabs.
The Darien jacket also accommodates a range of optional removable TLTec fleece liners that fit perfectly inside it’s breathable/waterproof outer jacket. These liner underarm vent zippers always line up perfectly, and the inner pieces fit, feel and work together like they were always made for a Darien. Which they were.
These optional reversible TLTec liners are worn separately under an outer Darien Jacket and are perfect on cool mornings and for all off-the-bike wear. They fold into their own compact zippered pockets, and then can be attached to your bike or worn on a belt like a fanny pack.
Executive summary: A jacket embodying Aerostich’s most bombproof design and construction for more durable comfort and wide all-weather protection. Both liner and shell feature underarm vent zips and plenty of pockets (nine in the outer jacket, six in the liner jacket!). An optional back pad attaches to all Dariens with pre-installed hook-and-loop. Available colors: black, grey, red, hi-viz lime yellow*, tan, or cobalt blue. All Darien jackets come with black details. 36–56. USA.

Size 36 not available with the AirVantage Electric Liner.

Darien ‘Cutaway’ Hem Roll

The Darien is a ¾ length design – it’s just long enough to cover a suitcoat and is the perfect length for standing-on-the-pegs dual sporting and adventure riding. For all camping and other rugged outdoor activities, too. But sometimes it feels a little too long, especially if you ride a sport or sport touring bike with the classic lean-forward body position handlebars.

An easy solution for some riders is to roll/fold the jacket front hem up underneath the zipper. After a couple of times it becomes automatic. You don’t even think about it because it takes not even two seconds. Give it a try.

MMM Product Review: Aerostich Darien Jacket

My love affair with the Aerostich Darien jacket was quickly developed and has been growing stronger with every passing riding season. It was my first real motorcycle related purchase and one that I have benefited from every since.

Within a few months of the purchase of my first real bike I was off in a far away land (Iowa) searching for towns that may or may not exist with fellow I've Been Everywhere Grand Tour riders. My Aerostich Darien jacket was about to take its first test. We experienced damn near every type of summer weather on this ride and by the end of the summer I had the frost and snow feather in my cap too. Dirt roads, random rain storms and gusting wind. But nothing would compare to what was coming. We had decided it was time to head home. After a good meal and some 'BS'ing we were on the road. Destination, Des Moines. Turn north and blast home.

About an hour south of the Minnesota border we ran into a wall of water. Not just a rain storm, a wall of water. Now being a new rider, I figured we would find the next exit and wait it out or at least let it die down a bit. We didn't even slow down... Continue to Full Review
