anyone has experience with the Aerostich Darien Jackets? they make two version, the Darien and the Darien Light.
I have a Darien not the the light and its an OK jacket. Keeps the rain off, comfortable and loads of pockets most of which are not rain proof. Its been for a slide on wet oily black stuff no problems,hardly a mark, yet on a simple drop in a car park and it holed. who can tell? I like it but then I got is second hand and quite cheap. If you take the inner fleece jacket out there is nothing inside, just the codura or what ever they are made of and the armour fits using velcro strips. To sum up it was easily worth the money I spent on it but I wouldn't buy one for the full asking price.
Chris Scott owned it before me and used it in BC see "Call of the Wild" tape/DVD. He also mentions the performance on his website.
Hope this helps
