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.

Received my AD1 pants a f...Review by Martin Balk
Received my AD1 pants a few days ago.
I purchased them for riding between 30 and 45 deg as I could not take the cold below 45 and don’t ride when there is a possibility of ice.

Comments: (positive)

They are as advertised. At 30 deg, at night, with just jeans under them, I was comfortable.

The sizing chart worked out perfectly.

The length, at first, seemed way too long as another commenter noted, however, after getting settled in, and learning where they went on my body, the length was just right. In fact, someone must have spent a long time getting the design right as it is an excellent fit. They cover the little, but annoying area between my shoes and pants where wind used to get in.

Yes, they are stiff, but that is not a problem once they are on.
I have a wide seat on my bike, a little wiggling is required to get comfortable, but it is OK.
It takes some time to learn how to get them on and off quickly.
The pockets' are great. The reflectors are also very good.

Basically, I am very pleased....and would recommend them to anyone who asks.

Comments: (negative)

There was a sale when I bought them and a note on there web site that there was a $50 reduction for cosmetic problems. I asked the person on the line if the finale price would be the advertised price less the 50? I even stated the amount. She said she would check and in a few minutes confirmed the price. The price on the bill did not reflect the $50. Phone call could not resolve problem only that I could return them. -

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."
