DarienLight Jacket

DarienLight Jacket

Product Review (submitted on November 2, 2009):
I picked up my Darien light for the warmer months.
I ride year round in all types of weather. I found the jacked to be the same quality I expect from all high-end gear. Over all fit and finish was great.

The only concern I had with the “Light” was the amount of protection I may be giving up.
I was in Oregon on Interstate 5 with a light rain falling.
Coming around a nice right hand sweeper I lost the front end and low-slided at
The impact of a low slide is not too great and there was no “impact” damage. However, I slid on wet asphalt for just under 60 yards.
The jacket held up to perfection. The only “burn” through was on the right side shoulder with the padding underneath.
I was also wearing Darien pants. After the slide was over I got up and walked away without a mark on me.
I no longer have any concerns about the sturdiness of these jackets.
In short, highly recommended and the jacket did its job.
