Product Description

Details

The AD-1 is a fully seam taped, unlined, HT600 Denier Nylon three layer GORE-TEX® jeans-cut pant, with full length separating side zips. The outside zippers have full length 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 which 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 vertical zippered cargo pocket is on top of the right thigh and a horizontal opening pocket to the top of the left thigh. Available in even waist sizes, 30–46 regular and long. An Aerostich Money Belt (#1854) is included with these pants. Black, Grey or Tan. Imported and Made in USA

If you are interested in suspenders (?) we recommend these #1815-1349. Several models and styles are available.

AD1 are #1Review by Jeff
These pants perform as promised. Took a 5500km round trip across the Trans-Labrador HWY and Newfoundland in September (not recommended). 8 of the 10 days were wet. Most just a constant light rain. But 3 of those days saw long heavy downpours. I was the only one in the group to stay dry (had the Darien jacket on top).
Fit and length are great. Seem a little long at first but once they are snugly fit around my boots, don't even notice.

Customer service is also top notch. First pair I purchased were too snug on the legs. Sent them back asking for the next size up. The new pants were couriered to my house in no time. (Posted on 12/17/13)
Ad1 pantsReview by Russ
These are my first over pants purchased. A bit stiff when new as expected, but after one wash and several rides, they loosened up. The knee pads fit well and the pants are quite comfortable. Already rode in comfort in mid-40s and look forward to this winters riding. (Posted on 11/15/13)
Great commuters!Review by Ryan
I ordered these pants as overpants for commuting over the Bay Bridge everyday as well as for weekend riding. I chose them over the Dariens as I really wanted a jean style pant that didn't make me feel like I was wearing a corset. I have to say I love these pants! They couldn't be easier to get in or out of and it seems like they provide plenty of protection. I wear a Levi's 33/30 and ordered size 32 which was a bit snug for the first few rides but fits great now. Be sure to play around with the knee pads until you get the placement just right - it's tricky when the pants are new and stiffer. Great pants... (Posted on 9/18/13)
Great Do-It-All Pants!Review by red
Full review: http://7plus8.blogspot.com/2013/06/aerostich-ad1-pants-review.html

The AD1 Pants are worth every penny. The fit is amazing, the construction is damn near bulletproof and the included features are great. They perform great in cold, cool and warm weather. However, once the temps hit the mid 80's, they're a bit toasty. However, with the leg cuffs left open, you do get some airflow up the legs. I plan to take the pants to a seamstress/tailor to have a second zipper head to the top of the zipper. That way, I can zip them down with the top and middle heads, then zip up the top head to create a vent. (Posted on 6/11/13)
I wish they came in my sizeReview by Uncle Dave
They look like great pants and i know Areostich makes great stuff. I'm a "big boy". I wish they came in my size: 50 or 52 ... (Posted on 4/25/13)
AD1 PantsReview by Wes
Well I just recieved the AD1's about two weeks ago and rode with them three times so far. Great construction. I bought one size up from my normal jean size so that I could fit the hip protectors. If your not planning on adding any extra protection, then order them in your normal size.
I like them so much that I have ordered the AD1 Lights. (Posted on 4/24/13)
Not very comfortableReview by John
Good Quality but do not like the way they fit. Legs are longer than needed (when riding) and not enough room in the Crotch area. I tried a pair of these on when you were in SF and the fit was much better. (Posted on 4/23/13)

Great Pant, Bad ZipperReview by NoDak
Bought these in Aug 12, have worn them almost every day since, great pant but the zipper stitching on the fly has blown out, kind of disappointed in that because they are a $300 pant, need to get some snow here in Mid-Atlantic so I can send in for repair! (Posted on 12/19/12)

Gear: Fashion and Style vs. Equipment

There’s a lot of ‘noise’ in the rider-gear market space the Aerostich Darien jacket occupies, about how ‘new and improved’ similar jackets are. Other companies making these kinds of jackets restyle them and revise them every year or two, telling riders that if three zippers is good, six or seven zippers is better.

What all the ‘noise’ amounts to is fashion and style being presented in the guise of technology which supposedly is rapidly ever-advancing in this area. Except armored waterproof textile jackets are not the same kind of technology as computers, or even motorcycles. Seven zippers are not better than three, if only three are functionally needed. What counts is ease of use, durability, fit and function. The pioneering of this type of gear was done by us twenty and thirty years ago. (Combining lightweight breathable-waterproof highly abrasion-resistant synthetic fabrics, seam-sealing, ergonomically more useful vents and pockets, reflective materials and energy-absorbing foams and plastics.)

Since then, just like added decorative stitching on branded ‘designer’ jeans turns a pair of useful, comfortable and durable work pants like Levi’s 501’s into a fashion, all the noise about new tech in jackets like the Darien is mostly fashion BS masquerading as technological improvements. It’s not real.

Classic black leather ‘zipper’ biker jackets have been popular world-wide for many decades. There are versions at many price points and in some circles this jacket has become a fashion cliché having little to do with actually riding a motorcycle. But for many riders it remains a great equipment choice that has changed only very slightly over the years — because it works so well. You’ll find the original versions of these jackets at Langlitz, Shott and several other pioneering leather companies. Similarly, you’ll find the original British waxed cotton Belstaff and Barbour rider’s jackets and pants still being produced in their original patterns because they remain excellent functional rider’s gear.

The ‘latest-greatest’ is usually more style and fashion based, and original equipment is nearly always more utility-tool based. It does not change from year to year any more than Levi’s 501’s. Many riders are unlikely to admit they are buying ever-changing fashion and style when they believe they are getting some kind of improved technology, but that is a truth. None of the regularly restyled ‘teched-out’ sportswear for riders comes in as many closely-spaced sizes as the Darien does, and none is as functional and equipment-y as a Darien.

The Aerostich Darien is the original advanced technology breathable-waterproof impact-armored synthetic (nylon) textile rider’s gear, and just like the above-mentioned other examples of specialized rider’s clothing, it is similarly more equipment than fashion. For historical reasons.

Dariens are available ‘off-the-rack’ in eleven closely-spaced graded sizes and six colors. Complete repair service and several optional fit alterations insure years of superior service.

"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."

- Mr. Subjective.
