The touring jacket should fit exactly the same as any other standard motorcycle jacket as the product is designed to expand outwards on activation.
You may consider upsizing this product by one size as we find the French sizing to come up a little smaller than we are used to here in the UK.
The jacket can be adjusted accordingly using the various velcro straps.
Every air jacket comes with a canister and lanyard attached – extra lanyards, canisters or interchangeable jacket outers can bought separately.
“ I commute every day to London from Chelmsford on my Yamaha MT09 I went into rear of car at 40 mph, I somersaulted 30 feet and landed on my back. I felt the airbag deploy in the air… I broke my arm and dislocated my wrist. Medics in hospital said they would usually see multiple broken bones and a dead patent on arrival with this type of accident ! My bike was written off! To other bikers I would say the Helite vest saved my life or at least prevented life changing injuries, it seems expensive but it worked and it was the best purchase I’ve ever made! “RF , London
“ Wearing my Air Jacket feels comfortable and safe, when wearing it, I feel I can push myself that little bit more!! After a crash in Poland in July 2012 I was very pleased to be wearing my air jacket - it’s a great safety product! “Chris “Bomber” Harris , British Speedway Champion
