  • This jacket will need to be worn with other Adventure Spec layers if you want to stay dry in wet weather or warm in colder weather. Used by itself it is designed for hot weather riding.

  • When worn with an Adventure Spec Core base layer this jacket will keep you cool and comfortable in hot dry temperatures between 20C (70F) and 30+C (90F)

  • There is room to add a slim 2 litre water bladder under the jacket

  • You can use this jacket without a neck brace although you will have a much wider neck opening than you are used to.

  • The rear pocket is large enough to fit in the Atacama Waterproof Shell (450g), a buff and a spare pair of gloves.

  • Includes Forcefield Isolator Level 2 back, shoulder and elbow protectors.

  • CE EN17092 certified AA for motorcycle use.

You want maximum ventilation, maximum protection, minimum weight and complete freedom of movement based around a neck brace compatible race jacket? So did Lyndon Poskitt for his 2017 and 2018 bids to win the Dakar Rally's infamous Malle Moto class. So we made this... 

A low snag Military grade mesh jacket that allows an almost completely free flow of air around your torso and arms to keep you cool when the going gets hot. 

And for crashes? 1000D Ballistic Nylon ‘6-6’ panels in all key abrasion/impact zones. Crash tested on camera multiple times by Mr Poskitt himself! The Atacama was also one of the only jackets to complete the recent 2018 Kalahari Rally (3rd Overall / 1st Malle Moto) without tearing on the deadly Bostwana thorn bushes.

Ensuring the perfect fit (with or without a bladder) are four strategically placed stretch panels located around the shoulders and upper arms giving you superb unrestricted movement.

The jacket includes Forcefield Isolator Level 2 back, shoulder and elbow protectors for maximum protection. This armour can also be removed should you prefer to use an armoured base layer instead. 

This jacket is perfect for multi-day race / rallies where weight, temperature control, protection and visibility are all key considerations.

NOTE: This jacket was updated in 2020 as part of our CE EN17092 upgrade. These updates included:

  • Addition of back, shoulder and elbow armour

  • Adjustment of under arm fabric

  • Addition of wrist cuff straps
