Darien Jacket

Darien Jacket

Product Review (submitted on December 17, 2013):
I ordered the Darien from Holland, having had the Aerostitch brand floating in the back of my mind for ages; their gear seemed to feature everything I wanted as a daily rider come rain, sleet or shine. I submitted my sizes, but on arrival the sleeves were an inch short, falling on the bony wrist protrusion. However, sans shoulder and elbow pads, sleeve length was spot on. As good fortune had it, I soon decided anyway to use the Darien without the pads, but with the optional Competition back protector. An injured spine gets you in a wheel chair. Used thus, the Darien is extremely comfortable and leaves room to move without the jacket pulling. All pockets, adjusting tabs and the collar are extremely functional. I'm totally happy with the jacket. Two caveats are the sizing for longish limbs which is tricky or somehow missed by the sizing dept., in my case with luck no problem, and the two lower front pockets have nicely angled entrance, but their zippers are very hard to pull close (direction belly button) becaus the jacket "gives". You really need two hands, one to hold the jacket tight when you pull the zipper with the other. Recommended!
