Perfect for beginner bikers and seasoned riders alike, the RST Rider Dark Jacket is an ideal textile motorcycle jacket with functionality and versatility at its heart, without breaking the bank. This ‘Dark’ version of the popular RST Rider Jacket features a jet black, minimalist colourway, ideal for those looking to blend in or those don’t enjoy being plastered in bright colours or logos.
A MaxTex outer construction offers a hardwearing outer to this RST textile jacket, helping keep the jacket lightweight without compromising on safety. Triple stitched with a bonded nylon thread, the risks of seam failure are greatly reduced for your peace of mind while the MaxTex outer is highly abrasion resistant. Hidden beneath the outer of the jacket are dedicated armour pockets with CE Level 1 elbow armour and CE Level 1 shoulder armour fitted as standard. A pocket found at the inside rear of the jacket gives the rider the option to include a CE Approved back protector should they choose to. These can be purchased separately as either CE Level 1 or CE Level 2 options.
A fixed mesh comfort lining within this textile motorcycle jacket makes for a welcoming environment to spend the day in, whether it’s your early morning commute to work or a trip to your favourite bike night. A fixed SinAqua waterproof membrane offers year-round waterproofing, minimising water entry into the jacket and keeping your base layers dry when you arrive at your destination. You’ll also find a fixed thermal gilet within the RST Rider Dark Jacket, providing an additional layer of insulation when riding in cooler weather.
Max zippers are used in the RST Rider Dark jacket due to their hardwearing nature and longevity. These zippers can be found throughout the jacket including the 360° connection zipper which allows you to zip the RST Rider Jacket into any compatible RST trouser, either leather or textile. This not only minimises wind entering in through the rear of the jacket when you’re trying to keep warm but also minimises the risk of the small of your back becoming exposed in the event of a slide across the tarmac. Zipped outer pockets offer storage opportunities for any essentials that you may need on your travels, from your phone and wallet to spare keys. At the waist and arm of this textile motorcycle jacket you’ll find adjustment points; the waist of the jacket features a Velcro adjustment belt while the arms feature a popper closure system. This lets the rider accommodate an additional layer underneath the jacket when riding in cooler weather or taking up the excess space when riding without one.
