Introducing the Dane Torben Jacket

Dane's Torben Jacket is their top-of-the range garment and comes highly specified
The Torben is built to last using Gore-Tex Pro
The jacket features Sas-Tec back, shoulder and elbow protectors
Dane has been working hand-in-glove with Gore-Tex for many years and was the first company to manufacture a laminated Gore-Tex laminated motorcycle suit. Originally a Danish company, Dane is now part the MotoPort Group based in Holland and Germany.

The Torben Jacket is the top-of-the range garment and as such is highly specified. It's features are there for a purpose and it's a jacket built to last. The outer shell is Gore-Tex Pro, a three-layer laminate which gives the ultimate in water and dirt repulsion and breathability. The shoulders and outer sleeve have a further reinforcement of Armacor which ups the protection and retains breathability.

On the inside, Sas-Tec protectors certified to EN 1621-1 are used at the shoulders and elbows where they are height adjustable. A Sas-Tec back protector certified to EN1621-2 is fitted. A removable ComforMax thermal liner is provided, this overlaps at the front making sure that there are no weak spots in this jacket's defence against the elements.

A custom fit is ensured thanks to the collar with an adjustable draw string and detachable luxury lliner, draw string adjuster at the hem and adjustable sleeve width. The Torben uses the integral Dane safety belt which is fit and forget as it doesn't interfere with the front closure. Double-layer Gore-Tex storm cuffs keep that vulnerable area draught and water free. Also featured are two outside pockets with labyrinth closure systems.

In warmer weather the jacket can be worn just with its mesh liner and the waterproof YKK zip vents open. YKK zips are used throughout and connect to the Lyngby Gore-Tex Pro trousers. These come with all the technical attributes of the Torban jacket including adjustable knee
protectors. In addition elasticated Gore-Tex panels are featured in the crotch, at the back below the waist and on the backs and tops of the knees. Detachable braces are also an option.

This two-piece suit can take you anywhere in the world – and back again.
