I realize that I've had my black Darien jacket for almost 20 years! It's still in great shape, but I think it's time to treat myself to a new blue one. Having just bought the BMW R1150GS Adventure Special Edition (which has a blue seat and trimimngs) a new blue Darien will be the biz. Great product. Thank you. (Posted on 7/21/08)
Now that I am older and m... Review by William King
Now that I am older and more in touch with my mortality I wanted some sort of protective clothing that I could wear in all kinds of weather. I read an article that mentioned that the author was wearing a riding suit that was also great in bad weather. Just what the doctor ordered (having gotten caught in torential rain outside of Sturgis near the Crazy Horse monument without rain gear). My gf bought me the Darien pants (custom fit for stubby legs) and I bought the Darien Jacket. I was worried that it would be too hot for the summer but I was wrong. There are so many vents and flaps that allow adjusting the air flow that I was comfortable even in Jersey in high 70's temps. There are more pockets than I know what to do with. The collar hasn't calmed down yet and is kind of a pain in the neck (literally). I can't wait to try the Darien in cold Jersey winter weather. Don't know why I didn't have one of these jackets long before this. Live and learn. (Posted on 7/4/08)

First, I am the proud owner of a Road crafter, Darien Regular and Darien light.
I seem to go to my closet and reflexly pick the Darien Hi-viz. After 30,000 miles since May 07 on my 1200GSA and the Darien. 6 Months in Central America on my 100gspd and 80,000 miles before on 1150gs I can say there is no other riding gear that holds my confidence like the Aero products. They all still look new; except for the Hi_viz and it has character but no visible wear. While other riders are stopping to put on their riding gear I am merrily continuing on.

Best piece of gear I have. And dont worry...buy the hi viz and in a few thousand miles you won't need a bottle of authentikrud...you'll be a filthy mess and be cool in the process.

Functional, pockets are well placed and keeps you warm and dry, even in the 50s with no liner. I use the Kanetsu Wind Block Electric liner and it's a little much even in the NJ winter this year (teens). The bulk is the issue. I don't think you need the windblocker if you buy the electric.

True the collar is a little rough, but I didn't notice until I read a review stating such.

Oh...took a spill on ice last month, only a small tear on the shoulder where I initially hit, repaired with the 'stich Gore Tex Repair kit...good as new. Thanks folks. (Posted on 7/1/07)

Fantastic garment which I am proud to wear. Pity about the very uncomfortable collar which rubbed my neck raw. Had to spend an additional $50 to have it lined by a third party. Too bad. (Posted on 4/6/07)

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
