For adventure touring, here is our Vanson ODYSSEY JACKET. Originally designed as both complement and compliment to the Buell adventure-touring motorcycle, our Odyssey Pants and Jacket (Styles ODYS, ODYP for men; ODLS, ODLP for women) are an excellent combination for both on- and off-the-road excursions. Comfort, protection, ease of movement and ventilation control in all weather conditions were the design goals for this family of garments.
Your sine qua non for comfort, ventilation and protection is a garment that flows the maximum amount of air, without billowing and deforming, which would lead to both fatigue and loss of protection, from armor shifting away from impact areas.
We chose 1000 denier Cordura nylon as the base material for its renowned durability and strength (developed at DuPont to replace the steel belts in radial tires). Cordura is very strong, but does not breathe well. With the Vanson AirCurtain Vent (US patents 5507042, 6883178,6868557) in the front and RamAir Induction Vents (US Patent 5704064) in the sleeves we can give you very effective ventilation.
The cover for the AirCurtain Vent is a double layer of 1000 denier Cordura which we top-stitch in a diamond pattern for extra strength. Behind the opening is the AirCurtain, of waterproof coated nylon with waterproof zippers, and an ingenious drainage system that lets rain water flow out of the sides, with air leaving through two exit vents just below your armpits, and a larger vent across your upper back.
Protection is enhanced by the Vanson Floating Armor system (US patents 607274, 6260196 ) with CE approved armor at the shoulders and elbows. The standard backpad fits into a lining pouch.
With a two-way center-front zipper you can adjust the opening for comfort on a long ride, and the Velcro tabs on the sides of the waistband can give you a snug fit if you need to keep out the wind; at the back you can zip the jacket and matching pants together. To keep your neck comfortable while keeping out the weather we lined the collar with lightweight leather over a foam-filled roll.
You'll have plenty of storage with two inside open-top mesh pockets and two waterproof zippered hand pockets on the outside.
