THE LINESMAN JACKET
"Love the materials. Love the colour. Love the simplicity."
Three part laminate performance
The outer fabric is constructed from a light, durable softshell constructed from 76% nylon, 18% Kevlar® and 6% Spandex. The middle membrane is created with a hydrophilic PU film, offering high levels of wind resistance. The PU film also offers a layer of water resistance, however the Linesman Jacket is not seam taped (add a waterproof layer for full waterproofing). The inner fabric is constructed with brushed polyester 'fleece' to offer comfort when worn against the skin.
These three layers are laminated together to create one highly effective fabric, designed and manufactured by Adventure Spec.
Kevlar® is a trademark of affiliates of DuPont de Nemours, Inc.
Big vents for breathability
Chest pockets double as mesh-lined vents. Large rear side vents open for maximum cooling and work even with rucksack on.
"It is becoming the Barbour of offroad motorcyclists ! we buy it and keep it for years and possibly bequeath it to our children. I use mine for riding on my bicycle as well and would also wear it to ride my horse if I had one ! You hit the nail on the head with this garment."
Rear zipped pockets
Neat rear pockets for essentials. Also sized to fit removable sleeves.
"What I love is it’s just a great bike jacket regardless of whether you use it as an adventure jacket. I use it for adventuring and commuting and it’s sooo comfy and also so easy to adjust the temperature!"
This is a splashproof outer jacket, it should be used with a fully waterproof shell in continuously wet conditions
Worn with an AdvSpec Core base layer this jacket will feel comfortable in relatively dry temperatures between 15C and 30C.
The rear pocket is large enough to fit the Aqua Pac Jacket (450g) a buff and a lightweight spare pair of gloves.
A short 2l water bladder will fit between the two rear vents and over the rear cargo pocket.
Includes Forcefield Isolator Level 2 back, shoulder and elbow protectors.
CE EN17092 certified A for motorcycle use.
Probably the lightest most innovative jacket to be presented to the Adventure Rider in the last decade.
The wind resistant and water shedding softshell body fabric of this garment is most at home in dry environments (warm or cold), although it's quite happy brushing off the odd light shower.
For protection the jacket is fitted with class leading level 2 Forcefield Isolator armour in the back, shoulder and elbows. This can be removed should you wish to wear an armoured base layer instead. To help abrasion resistance in high impact areas we created our own AS Softshell fabric by blending a traditional body fabric with Kevlar threads to create a fabric that is surprisingly robust in the event of an unexpected drop or slide.
We made sure overheating wasn't an issue by adding front chest pockets/vents, rear bladder compatible vertical vents and removable arms. We also added our trademark rear cargo pocket for your spare gloves/buff or the sleeves off your jacket.
Super comfortable on or off the bike this is one jacket you will find yourself wearing day after day after day.
