Lightweight Outer-Shell designed to be worn over body armour
Corbett off-road outer shell is specifically designed to be worn over a hard shell or soft shell body armor. It is not a standalone protective gear and does not come with any built-in armor or pockets to insert armor. It is meant to be used in combination with body armor for maximum protection and safety while off-roading.
Maximum Ventilation & durability
The Corbett Off-Road jacket is designed to keep you cool and comfortable while you're out exploring trails. Made entirely of heavy-duty 3D mesh, this jacket offers maximum ventilation, keeping you cool even in hot and humid weather. The mesh fabric is breathable and lightweight, allowing air to flow freely, which is essential when you're wearing body armor. The Corbett Off-Road jacket is the perfect choice for off-road riders who demand the best in ventilation and durability.
Dual layer Cordura on Impact zones
The Corbett Off-Road jacket is built to withstand the toughest off-road conditions. The primary layer of the jacket is made of abrasion-resistant and tear-resistant Cordura Nylon 6.6, which is highly durable and offers superior protection at the impact zones. This nylon shell is much more robust than polyester fabrics typically found in jackets, and it provides excellent protection against UV degradation.
Stretch Panels for Maximum Flexibility
The use of neoprene stretch fabric behind the shoulder blades allows you to move comfortably on the bike. A strategically positioned stretch panel allows you to move your torso freely while saddling or cornering, ensuring that you have the flexibility and freedom of movement you need to tackle any off-road challenge.
Auto-lock Zipper Wrist Closure
The wrist area features a zippered closure with an auto-lock YKK slider, preventing the zip from accidentally opening while you're on the move. The hem of the sleeve is made with soft neoprene fabric, providing a smooth edge that won't chafe or irritate your skin. The zippered wrist opening allows you to adjust the constraint to your individual preference, ensuring a perfect fit. This added feature allows you to ride comfortably and without any distractions.
Functional & Convenient Front Pockets
The Corbett trails jacket features strategically placed pockets allowing you to keep your essentials close at hand while you're out exploring. The vertical chest pockets are perfect for storing your mobile phone or time card, while the horizontal pocket is ideal for holding a snack or wallet. These pockets are made with ventilated mesh, which allows air to flow freely, preventing overheating and ensuring maximum comfort.
Versatile Rear Cargo Pocket
Comes with a large cargo pocket at the back of the jacket that is big enough to accommodate rain gear or any other light items. This pocket is located at the rear bottom end of the jacket, which allows you to carry light essentials that you may need quick access to, such as a rain gear, map, or first-aid kit - without any discomfort!
I am a strong believer of the Light is Right philosophy in adventure riding and place utmost importance in the ability to layer the components of my riding gear. I was looking for a good abrasion resistant jacket with muted tones to go over my soft armour and found the Corbett to fit my bill. Its affordable, functional, comfortable and also looks very good in pictures! ;)
I have put it through the test both on-road and off-road and, unlike my older jackets, not even once did it get in my way through technical bits or feel like a burden to wear under the hot sun.
The team also promptly mailed me to confirm my size and took note of my inputs when deciding on the right fit for me.
