Both the jacket and trousers feature a tough 600-Denier outer shell, which is resistant to abrasion, tears and holes. There’s CE-approved armour at the knees of the trousers and at the jacket’s shoulders and elbows, with a pocket provided for a back protector (available separately).
Combating the elements is a waterproof, windproof and breathable drop liner, with a removable quilted thermal liner included in both the jacket and jeans. When the weather gets warmer, zipped vents at the shoulders, arms and back of the jacket and on the thighs of the trousers enable cool air to flow through.
Adjustable Velcro® retaining straps at the cuffs, collar and the waist of the jacket and trousers allow for the addition of extra layers, sealing out the wind and weather and ensuring a snug and comfy fit. Straps on the upper and lower arms help to stop the jacket flapping around when riding.
The trousers have removable and adjustable braces with a rear support panel and raised back to the waist for additional weather protection, which can be connected to the jacket via an 8-inch zip.
The wearer has a total of 11 pockets to choose from – the jacket has four external pockets with zipper and popper closure, one external pocket with waterproof zipper, three internal pockets and a map pocket; the trousers have two concealed external waist pockets with zipper closure.
Feature-packed and sensibly priced, the Buffalo Sonar textile two-piece touring suit offers great value for the budget-conscious traveller. The Jacket is available in sizes S-5XL, in Black/Gun; the matching trousers come in S-5XL.
