This is the jacket that moto magazines, blogs, and riders have raved about for years, and it compares to kit that costs twice as much. The original was worn by Claudio in Long Way Round, and he tackled everything from the desert heat to the Siberian freeze wearing one. The Discovery Motorcycle Jacket is for motorcyclists that refuse to let the weather dictate if we ride or not, with a long list of design features to fit every riding condition. If your next trip is around the world or to the office, the Discovery will make sure you get there safe, dry, warm, and comfortable.

What the Press has to say about the Discovery Jacket: •"This Beats' em all. I'm doing 1200 miles in a week, often in awful conditions, yet fail to find the Discovery's limits. The jacket's biggest test was a four-hour ride in driving rain, but even at a constant 70 MPH, the water failed to seep through. Up until now I've never felt that safe in anything but leather. But with the Discovery I feel just as safe thanks to the CE armor, and I'm never cold. "Motorcycle Consumer News"

"I have to admit I'm fascinated by little details. I want a jacket that has everything and compromises on nothing. The new Discovery is such a jacket." BMW Owners News

"When I opted to drag This new Discovery Jacket on a 10-day tour through the east (north and south), I felt a bit overdressed at first--the thing was armored, triple-layered and strewn with more zippers than a convention of hookers. I shouldn't have bitched though--'s been in the gear game almost as long as motorcycles have been in existence, and I had the good fortune to test the brawny garment in the midst of the most schizophrenic weather pattern to hit the east coast in decades. Of course, it felt closer to hypothermia than good fortune in Pennsylvania (temps hovered around 30 degrees), but the garment's reinforced, 500-denier nylon shell and waterproof, breathable membrane kept wind and rain at bay and my innards warm with an insulated inner liner. When the sun finally broke in North Carolina, I simply pulled the liner out and zipped open the spacious underarm and back vents to cool my jets (my only beef was the liner buttoned more than it zipped). A soft, detachable neck-warmer snugged my jugular, and sleeve adjusters sealed out drafts. There were no safety shortcuts on the Discovery, either--the jackets bulk came largely from CE-approved hard armor inhabiting the shoulders, elbow and back areas. And reflective panels and piping enhanced my conspicuity at night. With eight pockets on the jacket, I never wanted for storage space. The jacket worked superbly in the conditions it was subjected to. In a ferocious downpour in Virginia, the internal rain skirt prevented water from wicking upward--hail, wind and rain couldn't penetrate the barrier. " Motorcycle Cruiser

"The Discovery Jacket is a big, bulky, skirted garment, designed in England to keep water out and warmth in. The Discovery is made of 500-denier Dupont Cordura and Hitena nylon, seriously tough materials that can take a lot of abuse. An outfit called Planet Knox has supplied the "impact protectors" which are inserted at the elbows, shoulders, and back, and the external impact areas have abrasion-resistant Duratec reinforcing. The internal armor can be removed for washing and more flexibility but if you are unfortunate enough to take a tumble while riding, fully loaded this jacket offers some pretty good protection. In between the outside of the jacket and the inner liner is a breathable, waterproof material trademarked as Microskin. This is the technology which allows the rider to wear the jacket and not sweat up a storm inside. What makes the Discovery an exceptional jacket, in my mind, is the attention to detail, especially the neck cozy. Keeping cold air from freezing my Adam's apple has always been a concern, and this jacket has a lovely warm wraparound which fully covers the throat and snaps into place. It has an excellent windproof design, and when the weather improves, the rider can detach the whole thing and tuck it into a detachable pouch on the rear skirt. A veritable slew of additional pockets are built in as well. On the front part of the skirt are two biggish pockets which really suffer overkill in the closure department, having zippers, hook-and-loop strips and snaps. You will not loose your wallet from either of those, nor will it get wet. Four outside breast pockets carry glasses, a cell phone, etc. Inside are two more pockets. Who needs saddlebags? The Discovery jacket can be snugged up with hook-and-loop straps on either side of the waist as well as one on the collar and both upper arms (to prevent flapping in the wind). Each wrist has both a zipper and hook-and-loop closure. For use in a broader range of temperatures, the armpits and back have zippered vents, another zipper covered with a flap that seals with hook-and-loop and five snaps keeps the front closed and watertight in a Force 3 hurricane. The Discovery comes with a long-sleeved zip-out liner made of Dupont Thermolite; the liner is kept in place by two short zippers, one on each side, making it easy to zip in and out. calls this an "all season" jacket, which it might be in cool, damp England. However, living in California I would call it a three-season jacket, as it can be quite toasty in summer (although with all the vents open I have used it on 90-degree days)." Rider Magazine
