Alpinestars' new Durban Gore-Tex jacket and pants have removable Paclite Gore-Tex membranes to keep warmth in and weather out. CE-certified armor is placed in the elbows, shoulders and knees, and the pants have leather panels for abrasion resistance. The seams are reinforced with welded, ceramic-coated Superfabric that enhances the tear- and abrasionresistance qualities of the jacket. The jacket comes with chest-and back-pad compartments with PE-protective padding, and it accepts the Bionic Neck Support (BNS) system. Air intakes at the pants' knees and zippered air intakes and exhausts on the jacket are strategically placed for ventilation. The jacket has detachable sleeves so it can be worn as a vest, and it has a built-in two-liter bladder storage pocket. Both jacket and pants have waist zippers to connect them together; sizes run from 48 to 60 EUR.
