AGV Sport Telluride Jacket & Pants Review

AGV Sport doesn't just do racing, sport and street gear. They also produce high-quality multi-season all-weather waterproof gear designed for long-distance touring and adventure at very reasonable prices. The AGV Sport Telluride Jacket and AGV Sport Telluride Pants represent the pinnacle of their achievements in this realm. If you don't know the AGV Sport story yet, the long and short of it is that they're a company who has been producing high-performance yet affordable motorcycle gear built by riders for riders for over a quarter of a century. The quality in design and construction speaks for itself as they consistently go head-to-head with much higher-priced brands and perform at the same level as those brands in third-party tests.

First is our AGV Sport Telluride Jacket Review:

The AGV Sport Telluride Jacket is a 3/4 length touring and adventure jacket designed to get you through every sort of weather condition during the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons. The exterior shell is an abrasion resistant 600D ballistic nylon with a waterproof breathable membrane sandwiched between the shell and the liner. In addition, there is a removable washable quilted thermal liner that will keep you warm in the cold, but can be taken out and extend this jacket into the hotter temperature ranges. The zip open vents at the chest provide air intake and the rear exhaust vents suck the hot air through and away from your body. The Telluride features CE rated dual density armor in the shoulders and elbows with an 8mm foam back bad that can
be upgraded to a CE rated back protector. As with all AGV Sport gear, the main seams are multiple stitched for the highest degree of tear resistance and all zippers used are YKK. To protect the main connection and maintain waterproofing, there is a double storm flap that channels water away from the garment. The moisture wicking microfleece comfort collar also features a spring-loaded snap at the collar to lock it down when riding with the neck open. Pockets abound in this jacket, with four waterproof front cargo pockets, two chest pockets, a pocket on the left sleeve, and a large game pouch that can house the quilted liner when not in use. The jacket also features loads of adjustability to make sure you're cinched down properly: the wrist, forearm, bicep and waist all feature adjusters for the perfect fit. Finally, reflective piping keeps you visible and the waist connection zipper allows for attachment to all-weather pants. Simply put, a feature-loaded all-weather jacket at an extraordinarily reasonable price point.

Next is our AGV Sport Telluride Pants Review:

A true four-season all-weather pant option to complement any AGV Sport textile jacket, the AGV Sport Telluride Pants are a 600D exterior shell with a removable double liner system offering loads of versatility. The removable waterproof breathable liner and removable quilted thermal liner can both be used independently of one another, so for the hot days, they're both out and the intake/exhaust vents zip open for solid airflow, but on cold wet rides, they stay in and protect you from both the temperature and precipitation. The pants feature ballistic nylon reinforcements in impact areas with CE rated knee armor and memory foam hip and lower back padding. Again, as with the entire AGV Sport
line, heavy duty stitching is used in all seams to resist tearing and protect from abrasion. Elasticated stretch panels are utilized above the knees and at the small of the back to allow for unrestricted movement. YKK zippers are used throughout this pant with a double reinforced metal slide closure at the waist. The adjustable velcro and zippered cuff closure is backed by a gaiter to maintain waterproofing. Finally, adjustable velcro at the hips allows for the most snug and proper fit while reflective piping in strategic locations lets you be seen for safety during night time rides.
