- Product Review (submitted on September 25, 2010):
I bought a hi-viz Darien in 2005. Five years and maybe 25,000 miles, it's still fully functional.
It's bulky, non-stylish, rugged and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Rain, shine, hot, cold. It's less hi-viz and more legal pad yellow + road filth now.
It does have a few flaws- the collar scratches up my neck, the back protector wears against the Gore-Tex on the back.
But it's my 3 season jacket. If Aerostich came out with a mesh jacket, I'd buy one of those, too.
