The Apalaches jacket and trousers
Furygan, the French clothing manufacturer perhaps best known for their leatherwork, especially gloves and racing suits, have been quietly broadening their range for some years and are now launching the new Apalaches jacket and trousers. Perfect for those riders looking for all-season textiles, they are the result of intensive development by the Furygan team to design a versatile textile suit for all-year-round use.
The Apalaches jacket ticks many boxes for what’s important when touring. There are nine pockets – six outside (including two quick opening pockets) and three inside (including one that’s waterproof) – which should be enough for anyone. As for safety the Apalaches jacket is Airbag Connect ready and there are reflective inserts for rider visibility.
The jacket is also packed with D3O protection at the elbow and shoulder areas and equipped with pockets compatible with Furygan’s D3O back and chest protection. It features a waterproof and breathable liner, Furygan’s Air Flow System (AFS) and a removable thermal lining. There are waist and sleeve adjusters too which aim to give a secure, comfortable and precise fit.
Apparently every detail of the whole Apalaches ensemble has been developed to give riders a high level of comfort and safety, no matter what the weather, but please note, we have not tested them yet so can’t confirm their quality. The CE-approved trousers are made from abrasion-resistant textile and feature a removable thermal lining, a waterproof, breathable membrane and Furygan’s Air Flow System (AFS). For comfort, there is stretchable material positioned between the legs and above the knees and waist adjustment tab.
The zip connecting trousers and jacket can either connect the trousers to the jacket or to the shoulder straps so they can be worn independently. There’s a high level of adjustment in the hems and the D3O knee protectors can be placed in three different positions. There is also D3O protection at the hips.
The all-new Apalaches textile jacket is available in UK dealers now in sizes S-4XL and in three different colour options – black/grey/red, black and black/grey/yellow – for £199.99.
The trousers are £179.99 and available in sizes S-4XL.
