I have owned a lot of Tourmaster gear and have been very pleased with most of them. I have also had (still do) Dainese winter pants and jacket and mesh jacket. I have mixed reviews of them. The pants are great, the winter jacket pretty good, the mesh jacket disappointing, although Iím still wearing it. I have three winter jackets now, and I mostly wear and like the no longer available Tourmaster Jett III that I bought for $100. Itís my favorite.

When considering gear that costs three times as much, I ask myself ďam I trying to fix something that isnít brokenĒ. I Bought a $850 Schubert helmet about five years ago. I hated it despite trying one on several times before buying. After about six weeks I sold it at a $250 loss, bought what was then about a $550 Shoei GT Air and liked it so much that Iím now on my second one.

Moral of the story is pretty obvious!

Do you wear the Darien pants over regular pants or by themselves? I find wearing 2 layers of pants gets pretty bulky and it makes it difficult for my short stubby legs to reach the ground at stops.

Original Darien jacket/pants for 20 yrs, then it needed replacing. It was an easy decision. Did a ride to Duluth for a custom fitting for a Darien Lite jacket/pants. It is much less bulky than the original. With both suits the ONLY times I got some wetness is when I forgot to raise up the collar and cinch. I've been through many all day downpours with both. Because it was asked, I wear sports tights (long sleeves) under the Darien and that setup is good for 50f and above. Above 95f is hot no matter what you do. I also have a complete set of heated liners for colder weather. Always fun to get out in single digits on clear dry roads.
