The Touring is a tethered airbag jacket connected directly to the motorcycle with a lanyard. Ideal for motorcyclists who want to combine comfort and optimal protection during long trips. Designed to be worn all year round thanks to its waterproof, breathable and windproof membrane and its removable thermal lining (100% polyester) with Mesh. Reflective inserts on the back, chest, sides and arms ensure maximum 360° visibility at night.
Adjustable at the collar, waist and wrists, the airbag jacket offers comfort and freedom of movement. Its zippers on the front, sleeves and cuffs ensure optimal ventilation during use.
The airbag jacket offers a big protection volume and is equipped with a mechanical system ready to use and easy to reuse. Thanks to its ultra-fast inflation (100 ms), it ensures optimal protection of vital areas: cervical, back, pelvis, sacrum and thorax, before ground impact.
Its reinforced shoulder and elbow protections guarantee maximum safety.
It is sold ready to use with 1 gas cartridge, 1 motorcycle lanyard, 1 Allen key and 1 user guide.

I can't give the jacket 5 stars because I haven't had the opportunity to test it (and hope to never). However, at this time 1. The jacket runs small, so be sure to go up a size, 2. The zipper is on the left side (takes a little getting used to as men's clothing in the US the zipper pull is on the right. 3 Plenty of storage space, I mean, pockets everywhere. Customer care is solid too.
I am 6' 4" and 210 lbs. I wear XL in most every brand. However, I had to go up to a 3XL with this jacket.
The 3XL arm length and chest size is okay but it is very long in the waist. You're sitting on the back of the jacket. The velcro sleeve adjustment creates a big lump of 3 layers of material which makes the sleeves very uncomfortable and a major struggle to get my gauntlet gloves over. These sleeves seem to be designed for gloves inside the cuffs but it's still a pain to get the sleeves over any of my gloves (except summer gloves). There is a rain liner inside when you unzip the vents. This seems to me that the liner would greatly reduce any air flow. In my humble opinion, make the rain liner removable, the snaps on the front zipper flap are unnecessary, the velcro is all you need. Also, a velcro closure on the neck flap would be better than the snap. A hi-vis option would be great.
The safety factor of the jacket overrides the Cons. After watching my son go down in front of me, we will never ride again without the airbag jacket. I'm sure Helite will be making improvements in the newer generations which will make this an awesome product.
