Dakar born and bred. A bombproof vented lightweight riding jacket.
You want maximum ventilation, maximum protection, minimum weight and complete freedom of movement based around a neck brace compatible race jacket? So did Lyndon Poskitt for his 2016 and 2018 bids to win the Dakar Rally’s infamous Malle Moto class. So we made this…
A low snag Military grade mesh jacket that allows an almost completely free flow of air around your torso and arms to keep you cool when the going gets hot.
And for crashes? 1000D Ballistic Nylon ‘6-6’ panels in all key abrasion/impact zones. Crash tested on camera multiple times by Mr Poskitt himself! The Atacama was also one of the only jackets to complete the recent 2018 Kalahari Rally (3rd Overall / 1st Malle Moto) without tearing on the deadly Bostwana thorn bushes.
Ensuring the perfect fit (with or without a bladder) are four strategically placed stretch panels located around the shoulders and upper arms giving you superb unrestricted movement.
The jacket is designed to be worn with armour next to your body for those looking for extreme impact protection, but also has armour pockets designed to accept the class leading Level 2 Isolator Forcefield armour inserts (shoulder, elbow and back) so you need never be left unprotected from impacts.
This jacket is perfect for multi-day race / rallies where weight, temperature control, protection and visibility are all key considerations.
Additional features include:
- Two mesh chest pockets
- Rear stretch panels to allow you to wear a slimline water bladder under the jacket
- Rear cargo pocket for carrying an additional waterproof shell
