A.R.C BattleBorn Jacket
Great jacket and value! The only annoyance is the hydration bladder pocket- It needs to be larger to accommodate newer wider hydration bladders. After a couple of trips to the local sporting goods store, I found the Camlebak Crux 2L Reservoir "worked" but just barely- had to take some water out.

Awesome jacket! You won’t be disappointed!!
This jacket is awesome! It’s got all the features and protection of much more expensive jackets that I was comparing it to($300-400+) before I purchased it. When I received it and tried it on it fit and felt great! Not too snug, not too loose. I’m 5’10 205lbs with broad shoulders and love handles lol. So glad I decided to get this set(also got the pants). Now I can use the additional money I was going to spend on the more expensive jacket for some other accessories.

I would recommend this jacket! Super buy for the money over many high end jackets. Very warm with liner down to temps in the low 30’s. Haven’t had a chance to wear it in the rain yet. Very comfortable!

This is an amazing Enduro jacket....at any price!
Started today's trail ride in my new A.R.C. jacket with outside temps around 40 deg under cloudy skies. Zipped up with the liner removed wearing only a tee shirt, body armor, and mesh jersey. I sayed perfectly worm through the mud and deep water holes. Mid-day the sun came out and the temps went to 60. I opened three vent zippers on the A.R.C. jacket and it was like I turned on the air conditioning. This is an amazing jacket. I removed the back and shoulder armor from the jacket and found the it still fit perfectly over my body armor. High quality, super comfortable, built in armor, and water resistant. I could not have hoped for anything more!

Still not waterproof
Great improvements over old style but still not waterproof. Leaks or dampness after about an hour in the rain. It is still great bang for your money but I'm on my 4th adventure jacket and nothing is fully waterproof. I'm going to have to buy Klim next. Lots of great features and I wear it daily so I still rate it highly.

Good for the price but short of excellent.
I've owned this jacket for one riding season, great ventilation and waterproofing. However the collar valcrow is weak and I've had stitching come loose on the hydration tube elastic along with the right sleeve tie down. The reflective piping is also chaffing in some places. Over all I like the jacket i just wish I could get the matching pants in my size. The stitching issue is the only thing keeping it from five stars. And I wish they had an additional snap to keep the collar closed.

Great jacket!
OK so i Have on this jacket or a little over a year now but I wanted to wait to I used it often enough to give a fair review.

I own a summer Alpinestar dummer mesh jacket and this one for the rest of my seasons.

This past weekend I went through about 2 hours worth of a rainstorm and I was dry.... This is been the 2nd rain storm and both times I have remained dry.

The ventillation is adequate I would like to see longer sleeve and shoulder openings but the back ventillation panels help tremendously as well.

Plenty of pockets many of which are waterproof ...tested ...seem to be OK.

Comes with plenty of armor... I added chest armor into the inside and external pockets even though it's not built for it seems to do just fine.

Over all it is a great jacket and I would consider buying it or its next generation again.

I usually wear mediums. I’m 5’10”, 170lbs, 40” chest. I plan on wearing my Fox Titan armor underneath the jacket. I hear they run a size small, so I thought about getting a Large. Will I be fine in a larger with the Fox Titan armor on, or should I get a XL? Or am I thinking too much...
Jordan O on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: these do have a liner so they are a little snug if you run that armor under neath i would say get the large but we do have our fit guarantee for this exact purpose. free shipping on the first exchange so you can try this out and see if it will fit. i hope this helped.
Is the armor removeable?
Mike S on Nov 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the pockets hold the armor in place and can be removed quite easily. I was even able to add more armor on top of the pads included. I put additional D3o armor into the pockets with the included pads just fine.
Medium grey is discontinued or just out of stock at this time? Had it in my wish list and it showed up as discontinued.
Matthew R on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We are currently out of stock. The current ETA is for August.
Do the two pieces zip together at all?
Tadashi A on Nov 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do.
Is the gear waterproof, I've seen mixed reviews online?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve been riding for decades and have yet to find any gear that is going to keep you 100% dry while riding in a rain storm. I haven’t worn this gear in heavy rain, but I’ve ridden through creeks, splashing water all over myself and my bike without getting wet. The water runs right off of it. It is definitely is waterproof. Rain proof? That’s a different question altogether.
Which water bladders (make/model) fit in this jacket's hydration pocket?
Thomas D on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use a Camelbak Crux 2L Reservoir - it fits just barely by taking a few drinks from the bladder prior to placing in jacket.
Do the zippered vents on the BattleBorn jacket allow air to pass through the outer shell AND the water-proof Z-Liner membrane or is vented air only allowed to circulate between the outer shell and the waterproof membrane?

Does the battleborn jacket and pants offer protection for street riding?
John W on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Full Disclosure, I have not crashed in them, but the jacket & pants certainly seem to be made for encounters with pavement. The armor is all CE rated and the construction (stitching, type and weight of fabrics, etc.) is similar to other adventure/touring gear -- think of the Firstgear Kilimanjaro for example. Only compromise is the hip armor which is foam padding but you will find the same on other touring pants in this price range and considerably higher.
Should you measure your chest with or without armor? My question is does the jacket take into account such things like armor, base layers etc?
Mike B on Nov 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The jacket comes with armor in the elbows, shoulders and back. The thick material is very sturdy and I’ve never had an issue with rocks or dirt hitting me hard enough to feel it. I ride without any additional armor other than what comes with the jacket. As to the chest room, I have an extra large and I think there would be plenty of room to wear armor if you’d want to. The side since straps loosened up all the way should work depending on the size you order.
How does the set hold up in 90+ degree temperatures? Will it vent well enough to ditch the mesh sport jackets that I always find myself riding in during the summer? How heavy are they?

A.R.C. BattleBorn Adventure Jacket
A.R.C. BattleBorn Adventure Pant
A.R.C. BattleBorn Adventure Pant
BEST ANSWER: Vents definitely help a lot! They're better than the foul weather A.R.C. jacket and pants by far. I rode in a muggy 90° weekend recently, and it was pretty hot still. The material is thick, but you'll be glad on cooler days, and if you go down. Mesh jacket if you have room in your luggage would be fantastic, but for me I like having one set of riding gear. Battle Born is a fantastic option for not packing extra riding jacket. In hot weather I just wear cool moisture wicking tank top underneath, and if you stay moving it's not bad with vents open (esp if you have a well vented helmet). Highly recommend this jacket/pant combo. The thermals make 30's° riding a non issue as well.
Does the black fade to purple or does it stay a true black? I’ve had black before that looks terrible after time
David C on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Honestly, I haven't worn mine enough to develop any fade. I've used the jacket occasionally and it's still the same color as it was new.
I need some sizing advice for this jacket. I'm 6'3", 240 lbs, wear a size 38 pant, have just under a 48" chest. I usually wear a XL in most brands. Would I need a XL or XXL?
Nick M on Dec 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hey Nicholas,

I'm about 5'" and my weight runs between 175 and 185 usually. It seems like I'm always between sizes on all of my clothes so I ordered the large jacket. The sleeves are a tad long for me, the end is about mid palm, but it's not a problem. The jacket has adjustable straps on the arms and waist so I think all you will need to do is get the size close. The arms strap has about 4" of adjustment and the waist strap has probably close to 8". I also prefer my riding gear to be just a little loose so I can layer when the temps drop, I'd rather go loose then tight especially with the jacket.
Is this gear actually waterproof? I have seen mixed reviews.
shayne s on Jan 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've yet to wear it in the rain but by looking at it I'm thinking it will take a while to get wet
For those of you whom may have worn both colors of these jackets in the heat of summer; is the grey cooler than the black as one would assume, or are they the same?
Bill T on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have the jacket in black and I ride in Southern California. I have not noticed any issues with heat absorption. I’ll take the black over the grey just on that color to hide the dirt and bugs better. It’s a great jacket. Go with what you like and ride.
Are there chest pockets for armor? ( thanks )
Thomas C on Dec 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. But depending on what size you purchased and what additional armor you have, it is possible to wear additional armor under the jacket. I was able to wear my fox titan armor under the jacket comfortably.
I plan to use the for ATV riding - How will this hold up to mud? What is the procedure to clean it?
Joe M on Dec 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It holds up well to just about anything.
Here’s a detailed tutorial to wash it.

What brand of hydration bladder fits in the back? Where do I purchase?
David J on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Several brands will fit. It it will hold up to a 2 liter bladder. Also check to see if Rocky Mountain ATV has any for sale.
I am 6'4, 220 lbs, 36 waist, 46 chest. What size in both Jacket and pants? 😁
Steve G on Jan 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am 6’4, 200 lbs 34 W and 44 chest and the jacket in XL fits me good, but snug in chest. I use the adjustable waist to tighten up the jacket for a better fit there. Overall very happy with it, the arm length works. I passed on the pant because I have a 34” inseam and chose the icon Watchtower pants in their tall size. Very satisfied with those as well. Hope that helps.
I'm 6ft and 195lbs. What size should I buy if I want to wear Fox Titan armor under the jacket?
David L on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Probably large if you only wear the jacket with under shirt
Anyone have experience with this jacket and neck braces?
SCOTT L on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I own the jacket and I really like it, great ventilation for summer and with the liner and good base layer it is great for cold weather as well, also got caught in a pouring rain and stayed perfectly dry
Can you replace the armor with something stronger like d30?
Ian K on Dec 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. I just recently upgraded the back armor, it was a little difficult as the hole to put it is place is a bit small, but it can be done.
