In the UK the Trans Euro Trail covers over 2000 miles from Newcastle in the north east to Dover down on the south coast. As the snow melted early in 2019, Steve Stout and John Paul Dixon jumped on their lightweight adv bikes and headed off on a two week adventure. It was a great way to put the new ADV Spec clothing through its paces. Here’s how they got on…

ADV SPEC BALTIC INSULATED JACKET
At 375g this mid-layer packs (200x200x120mm) a serious insulating punch. Covering the entire upper body with a heavier weight of Thermore® insulation than its lightweight cousin The Baltic Hybrid this jacket is the ultimate non-electric cold weather riding tool.
Cut for riding, when the hood is removed and stored in the chest pocket this jacket is perfect for use under any armoured shell or over any armoured base layer. As the external temperature decreases the Thermore® intelligent insulation will increase its capacity to retain your body heat by up to 20% ensuring that your core remains comfortable and warm.
However, it’s true versatile nature becomes apparent when you’re off the bike. Pop the hood back on and huddle down around the campfire to keep warm in the evenings before retiring to your sleeping bag with your Baltic Fully Insulated travel pillow. Or head out to explore the local area, safe in the knowledge that if you get caught out in a brief shower it will be brushed off by the water resistant hood and shoulders. Oh, and did we mention it looks understated and helps you blend in wherever you go? The perfect travelling companion.
Finally, being a synthetic insulator Thermore® will continue to help you retain your body heat whether it is wet or dry and dries incredibly quickly as soon as the conditions allow.
Hint : If things get really extreme…layer up the Baltic Hybrid and the Baltic Fully Insulated for a crazy level of warmth (we do!).
