I am going talk to you about the same product, four times.
There will be very little repetition.
THE MOTO JACKET
This photo is probably not news to you.
Jack has layered up and is wearing his Singletrack Jacket as his waterproof layer over the top of his Supershirt and Baltic mid layers.
The jacket is cut for adventure riding. It's a little long in the arm because you spend all your time with your arms stretched forwards. It's cut a little long over your bum to keep you dry when standing. The collar is a relaxed fit so that you zip up without choking yourself with under-layers. The kevlar panels add extra abrasion resistance, but it's a waterproof over jacket, not a CE certified jacket with armour.
So, if the Singletrack Jacket is good for riding adventure bikes, and is light and waterproof, what else are Adventure Spec waterproof layers good at?
THE MTB JACKET
This is me wearing my Singletrack Jacket on my MTB. We don't sell it as a MTB jacket, but it works well as a MTB jacket. Especially because it protects your bum from mud. I'm rubbish at wheelies.
THE HIKING JACKET
Another one of me on top of a hill in Northumberland. Now normally I would be on my CRF300L, but this day was a 'date day' so I was on foot with my wife. It rained. I wore my Singletrack Jacket. I was dry and comfortable. When I got hot walking up the hill I opened the underarm vents and cooled down.
THE DOG WALKING JACKET
This is Dave walking 'Taxi', his dog in Italy. It's not really raining, but it's not warm enough for a T-shirt. So he's wearing his Singletrack Jacket.
I suspect you are getting my point.
Adventure Spec gear is built for people who explore the outdoors on their adventure bike.
It's also pretty good for exploring the outdoors without your adventure bike.
Which probably means there's a little bit more space in your kit cupboard.
About three jackets worth.
