Excellent armored jacket.
Excellent quality jacket that will work on both cool and warm days. Have not had it in the rain yet but the quality is excellent for the price. Looked at some Bilt jackets and they do not come close to the quality and features of the ARC Battleborn.

Great Jacket
I think this is a great jacket for the price. I was looking into the KLIM brand when I ran across this jacket for dual sport rides. I am so glad I chose the A.R.C. This jacket rocks! It was a tad tight so I thought at first (I'm a big dude, 6'2", 268lb) I normally wear a XXL so that's what I purchased. I was little skeptical at first and almost sent back for a bigger one. However, I wore it around the house like a goofball for about an hour and after moving around in it found it to be just right.

I now have about 6 rides in it and I love it. I've recently taken out to the desert in the rain and it was awesome. I stayed dry. I absolutely love the zip in liner. Wore it in 35 degree weather and kept me warm the whole time. On a warm day I removed the liner and opened the zippered vents and it was awesome. I really like how it has padding in it. I feel well protected while riding in the dirt and cold. I would recommend this to a friend and I actually have done so.

Most comfortable and Most padded for the price!
I wasn’t sure what jacket to get but out of all the brands they had in stock this was the most comfortable and the most padded for the price. It’s a super warm jacket when you need it to be, riding in freezing temperature was no problem. When it’s warmer out all the vents on this jacket easily cool you down so you can enjoy your ride. I highly recommend this jacket!

The jacket is warm and the collar is high which helps keep the neck warm. I have had the chance to ride in a few 40 degree days and am overly satisfied by the protection.

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.
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.
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.
Can you were a Leatt neck brace with this jacket?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You could probably make it work but it would probably be uncomfortable due to the collar getting bunched up.
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.
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. Battle Born Adventure Pant
A.R.C. Battle Born 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 main zipper have dual pulls so it can be unzipped from the bottom up?
Dale S on Mar 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The zipper was a little stiff for awhile but a little wax fixed that right up.
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.
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: This jacket seems very durable. It is really warm with the liner in. I ride in the woods and desert and it has survived well. Tag says to machine wash. NO tumble dry, NO Dry clean.
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.
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.
