Thread: Enduro Jackets?

  1. #1

    Default Enduro Jackets?

    Anybody ever look for / have a so-called "Enduro Jacket"?

    My goal is to have something over the mesh exoskeleton type armor (the one with shoulders, elbows, back, chest protector). I've got this armor, which I wear for the odd MX day and the couple times i've gone trail riding.

    looks like this:



    I don't really have anything to wear on top of it. I've got a waterproof-ish normal jacket, I've worn an MX type jersey, but I'd like something better.

    So I bought an Enduro jacket. Since I ordered it, I wasn't sure about sizing, but got a size up (52 instead of 50 eur.) to make sure armor fits. Well, the jacket has some armor already, which I can take out, but with the exoskeleton armor on, it doesn't fit so well. Mostly the arms are too tight.




    Do any 'enduro jackets' accomodate armor underneath? Or is there some other term for a jacket that I need instead?

    thanks for any help.... there is a decent chance this jacket will be for sale if i can find what i want.....

    Nice looking jacket. Probably not my size though.

    Would be interested in hearing thoughts on enduro jackets myself.

    The enduro jacket seems to be similar to a textile type gore-tex one.
    which i have.

    has some useful pockets, waterproof zippers, which is nice. longer maybe?

    Armor is ma-ma. which isn't good enough to me, since off-road is where I think most offs would happen (mine did).

    I'm an American size 42. I think that's a Euro 52.

    Is it water proof (beyond the zippers)?
    Is it too warm for summer?

    yeah, this is your size.

    maybe this should be moved to For Sale now.... ;)

    I've never worn it, so can't comment on the summer. I personally think anything is too warm for the summer, it is your threshold for dealing with it that varies. :razz:

    Here's the list of 'stuff' from the web site.

    I bought it here: http://www.dirtbikestore.co.uk/

    Can't say I'd recommend them, they sat on my order for 3 weeks since 1 thing wasn't in. I was wondering why it never showed up. in the end, they didn't have 1/2 the stuff i wanted, ended up just getting the jacket.

    Anyway, on there they say they've got up to XXXL, which is size 48 (58 european), which sounds like your size.

    Many other places seem to have it. I think it looks pretty cool.... if you get the big one, maybe i'll go try it on and see if my armor fits under it!! :|

    Going stateside soon, so will find some off-roady place and see if such a jacket really exists (where big armor fits underneath).

    why does it need to be 'enduro'?

    i think my darien is a great enduro jacket so i wear my aerostich gear until it gets too hot. then i just wear something like your mesh and carry rain gear. id rather have something better than mesh but in july and august its just too hot!

    but all this is moot if you havent cleaned your air filter yet!

    shit man, you got me!

    haha....

    BUT!

    I did buy the stuff. oil + some cleaner stuff. I got a bucket I can use. So if I make some time and look up how to take it out, I can sort it out!

    doesn't need to be. I need any armor to be removable, and be able to have armor underneath.


    I guess I just want a cordura shell. Is there a term for that??

    It used to be called a "wind breaker"

    i've been using dish soap but maybe i should get something better!

    you may also need to apply some grease where the filter seals with the airbox to ensure a good seal.
