THE LINESMAN JACKET
The ADV Jacket
(that doesn't think it's an ADV Jacket)
Uniquely styled for those who want a more subtle look.
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.
Rear zipped pockets
Neat rear pockets for essentials. Also sized to fit removable sleeves.
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 Linesman Waterproof Shell (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.
NOTE: This jacket was updated in 2020 as part of our CE EN17092 upgrade. These updates included:
