Everything I know about South Africa, I can write on the back of a pack of matches. And were it not for Alpinestars, I wouldn’t know there’s a coastal city in eastern South Africa known for hosting the 2010 World Cup and the namesake of their latest and greatest Tech-Touring piece of riding gear, the textile Durban jacket and pant. The polyamide main shell with Superfabric® reinforcements is lighter in color (Grey/Black/Sand) are far lighter in weight than the KLIM Badlands Pro suit I tested last year. The pair of garments are each of two-piece construction with removable micro-fleece lined Gore-Tex liners that are ready for 3-plus seasons of action, from hot to not.
The Durban jacket has all that AND a bag of chips… and you can read the rest of the review on RideApart. Thanks!
