THE ORIGINAL SINCE 1992
Aerostich Dariens are the original modern 'adventure riding' gear. They, along with cell-phones and GPSs, helped encourage this kind of riding. Dariens were introduced years before all of the internet adventure riding forums and print magazines existed. Pioneering Darien wearers shared their adventure ride stories, photos and ideas, inspiring many riders.
Early pioneers like Ed Culberson, Helge Pedersen, Greg Frazier, Chris Scott, Ted Simon (and others) relied on Darien gear because of its combination of protection, reliability, durability and comfort. Today, adventure riders choose to wear Aerostich Darien gear, because it remains the best.
Even among today's highly detailed, styled and teched-out adventure gear, the Darien stands out because it remains a lightweight, tougher, better fitting, simpler and more comfortable piece of equipment. It just wears and works better across a wider range of conditions. As always, Aerostich Darien jacket and pants are 100% hand made in-the-USA, too.
More than twenty years ago Dariens established new benchmarks for performance, fit and comfort. And since then we’ve continually refined them. Today’s Dariens are the best ever.
