AETHER Canyon Motorcycle Jacket

The Canyon Motorcycle Jacket was designed for long-haul expedition riding and offers advanced protection with a clean, refined aesthetic.

The Canyon is made using Schoeller-Dynatec, an abrasion-resistant fabric that has been specifically engineered for motorcyclists. This technical shell fabric has been tested and refined using Schoeller’s Sturzsimulator crash simulator, which drops fabric against an actual piece of pavement at variable speeds of up to 75 mph. Schoeller-Dynatec has not only been crash-rated, but its 3-layer construction makes it completely waterproof and breathable. For warm-weather riding, ColdBlack has been integrated into the garment dye to reduce heat retention caused by sunlight by approximately 10 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Designed for the specific ergonomics of motorcycle riding, the Canyon has been constructed with articulated elbows and shoulders for ease of movement. A two-way weatherproof front zipper and zippered side-seam gussets allow the wearer to adjust how the bottom hem sits while seated. Pit zip vents let cool air enter the jacket, while back vents allow it to exit. Front Napoleon chest pockets are lined with mesh and can also be opened for ventilation, while an internal VELCRO® brand closures pouch keeps contents safely stowed. Dual-entry exterior back pocket allows for storage of large items like gloves. Brushed-tricot lining along the inside of the collar, VELCRO® brand closures cuff adjustments, and a zipper garage at the chin add to the Canyon’s subtle detail work. 

The Canyon Motorcycle Jacket has been designed to deliver advanced protection, superior comfort, and a clean, refined aesthetic. No matter how long the journey, the Canyon jacket will see you there and back.Abrasion Resistant / Waterproof / Seam Sealed

Good protection without looking like a Power Ranger!
This is without a doubt the nicest riding jacket I have. It's also the most crazy-expensive. I needed a jacket I could use to ride to work that wasn't quite as out-there as my Klim gear. This one fits the bill. The size 2 fits me great (5'8" 170#, size 40S suit) and allows a little extra length in the arms and just enough room underneath to put my heated jacket on. I got the blue, which looks fantastic in person. It is very comfortable, looks great, and keeps me warm enough (again, with heated gear below) at 30 degrees. So why only 4 stars? Well, for $750 it should be perfect. For example, it should have a loop to hang it on the wall, which it doesn't. It should have more than 1 internal pocket, which it doesn't. And the closure around the neck is pretty good, but not awesome, which I would certainly hope for given the price. So yes, I love it, but I would love it more if it were $450 instead of $750. No jacket should cost that much.

Not worth the price
I bought the Canyon to replace a KLIM Latitude Misano that I'd used in nearly every type of riding condition. Great jacket, but I had two issues:

- I didn't like the style with all that branding, and
- the fit was too baggy (I am stuck between a L and M in KLIM's sizing).

I liked Aether's collection and reviews were good. I got to try and inspect all Aether stuff at a local store and went with the Canyon over the Expedition because the Expedition had way too many buttons and pockets and such. I wanted simple.

I has ridden nearly 5000 miles from CT to TX and all over Mexico with it and am disappointed. I knew it was really a $500 jacket when comparing to the market, but I was willing to pay more on the hopes that it was the perfect mix of functionality with unstated styling. My conclusion is that it is not worth $750 nor $500.

My complaints are threefold:

1) The zipper leaks during rain. I should have noticed this when I bought it, but there is not flap shielding the zipper on the outside. There is one inside, but that is more a windflap (it makes no sense to put a rain flap inside since raing will just drip off of it onto your body). Zippers are always weak points on so-called waterproof gear, but the KLIM has a flap that covers its zipper and does a good job of stopping water from entering. The Canyon does not and in heavy rain I get wet through the front zipper.

2) There simply is no effective airflow. I don't understand this. With all the zippers wide open I just don't feel much airflow. The chest zippers do almost nothing---I've zipped open and closed while riding to compare and notice no change. The rear vents don't seem to work as effectively as on other jackets. I don't really know why with all these openings there is no flow, but there isn't. In hot weather I end up riding with the front zipper half open, which compromises safety should I crash b/c the jacket will slide around. Very disappointing, and it severely limits the range of riding in which you can comfortably use the jacket.

3) The underarm zippers are seam-sealed, which is good, but they are so small and so difficult to open and close that it is impossible to do while riding. This means if it starts or stops raining while on the bike you have to pull over to adjust your jacket. If I'm going to pull over, I might as well throw on a Frog Toggs or something. The whole point of a ADV or DS jacket is to adjust to conditions as they come.

In the end, this jacket feels like the first version of a jacket that has potential but needs a second or third update to reach it. It just feels like the jacket was made by someone with mostly sunny street riding experience.

One final note:
I understand that the two jackets discussed (KLIM Latitude and Aether Canyon) are not equal---the KLIM Outlander is the more appropriate peer for the Canyon. Still, if I had the option to do it over, I'd keep my KLIM and just accept the bagginess and branding.

-----

For those that are considering:
6'1" 190lbs; I bought a size 3, which offers enough room to wear some layers beneath in cold weather
I also wear 52 Dainese, am between M and L in KLIM (as mentioned); and wear a L in Roland Sands

Expensive but worth every penny
I'll say it up front, $750 is a lot of money to spend on a jacket. As a returning rider, I needed to build my kit from the ground up, and figured if I was going to spend top dollar on any one piece of gear, it would be the right jacket.

I tried on leather. I tried on textile. I went to a local moto shop and tried on Alpinestar, Tour Master, Weise. I went to Cycle Gear and tried on Dianese, Sedici, Joe Rocket, Icon, and Rev'it. I found very few that felt comfortable off the rack. Some were too tight in places while being too loose in others. Many had very hard, uncomfortable armor. Most had graphics or color combos I just couldn't see myself wearing. So I sucked it up and pulled the trigger on the Aether.

It fits perfectly, everywhere. In the arms, in the chest, around the waist, and the length is just right. The D30 armor is barely noticeable. The styling is not loud or in your face. The technical features are all there for a purpose.

It hasn't been warm enough here to test out the venting but I am very confident I will be cool enough in this on 100+ degree summer days. For cooler days the jacket leaves me just enough room to add a couple layers.

I wear a medium in most outerwear and I wear a size 2/medium in this one too.

If you have the means, I highly recommend this jacket.

Great Jacket
The 2 (med) fits me at 6’ tall 165 pounds, 39” chest. I think the sizing chart is right on.

The Canyon Jacket is expensive but worth it. It delivers on the promise: “…designed to deliver advanced protection, superior comfort, and a clean, refined aesthetic.”

The length is perfect. The back is cut longer than the front and just touches the seat. The double zipper on the front allows for the bottom to be opened up a little if necessary. I prefer the length over the expedition jacket.

I love the fabric. Schoeller’s technical fabrics are amazing. It’s got the right feel and durability. Not coarse like some jackets. The protective pads won’t leave you wanting something better. The 3DO pads are exceptional.

I consider the jacket optimum for three seasons, spring, summer and fall. You can layer some thin insulating layers under it, but not a lot. It’s cut just right and I wouldn’t want the fit to change for heavier layering underneath. I have ridden for several hours at 34-36 degrees with a heated liner so if you’ve got heat, you’re good.

I’ve ridden in mist and snow, but not heavy enough rain to have tested out the waterproofing. If it’s a good as the rest of the jacket, it will perform very well.

The pockets are sized well. Very usable. A small zippered pocket on the upper or lower arm to store small items like lip balm and ear plugs would be a plus.

Aether apparel is quality stuff.
Designer clothes look meets Klim durability. While it's expensive; it looks great, and it's worth it.

I've been on my Aether Canyon jacket (black) and my Compass pants (brown) for almost a year now and have nothing but great things to say. The jacket's venting scheme works really really well when opened up to keep you cool, but keeps you dry when you zip it up in the rain. (The pit zips are massive, but are seam sealed.) I thought the material they advertised on the black color to stay a bit cooler was gimmicky, but it actually works. Layed out in the sun the jacket is tangibly cooler than my helmet, gloves, and seat are....kinda interesting.

You can blouse them and go cuff inside boot (i wear Gaerne balance oiled) if you want, or they are cut at the cuff generously enough to be comfortable outside a full moto boot and look great. The pants articulate well on the bke with no binding/pinching with sufficient length in the seated position. The armor carriers inside the pants dont give hot spots and keep the d3o knee pads in place, even when going from standing to seated repeatedly.

Looking forward to trying the new expedition suit.

Just right
I guess I am the rare rider that likes casual looking gear, but I also want protection and features. This is a rare combo for sure. I am glad I found aether and I am shocked that other companies don't offer more options like this. I don't need a million pockets, and this jacket has just the right amount.

The fabric feels nice, and I love d3o armor. I was surprised by the amount of airflow with the vents open. I can ride at 80 degrees and only sweat a little under the back protector. For shorter rides at over 75 degrees I will still use my klim induction which isn't casual but doesn't have

I am 5'9" and about 145lbs. I decided to listen to reviews and not size down and went with the size 2. It fits just like I wanted. I can wear it with or without a mid layer and feel comfortable with either. A size small north face or other fleece fits under it nicely. I can even fit my technical lightweight down jacket under it. I think I could easily ride in the 30's with that combo. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

I can't speak to what it would be like to crash in this and I hope I never find out. It feels like it would provide similar protection as my klim stuff and that is a compliment.

I took one star off but wish I could give it only half star off. The sleeves are slightly baggy and I wish they we a little slimmer, but like I said I only weigh 145 so I don't exactly have guns. The neck is also a little stiff but I have hopes it will break in. Also it is made in China. Not that China is incapable of producing quality, but I would prefer USA or EU made at this price point.

Very Satisfied with the Canyon
Super versatile piece. My only real disappointment was that the Black colorway was unavailable by the time I bought mine. I've been in it more than a year and have been happy with it in all but the hottest of days. I was drawn to the safety and protective features and was willing to spend the $ to get that tech. Glad I did. All the armor is in the right place and the fit is excellent for my athletic frame, 6'2" 225 lbs, seated upright on a Speed Triple. The size 3 fits better than any other jacket I've had. I can get a mid-layer in comfortably when the weather cools and its not so baggy that riding without a mid-layer makes it look like I'm a kid wearing his dad's suit. Usually when I get my neck and shoulders right the waist is 2x bigger than needed, not with the Canyon. I recommend it to anyone searching for a versatile jacket.

Great jacket but crazy expensive
This is my favorite riding jacket ever. It has been comfortable to ride this fall & winter. I have used it in the 40-50s with a fleece underneath, and in the 30s with a heated liner. The fit and finish are top notch, and I can wear it to work without looking like a Power Ranger, which was my goal. If you believe the word on the street, I should have gotten a small or 1 (5' 7", 168#, 40" chest) but the medium or 2 gives me a little more length in arms for leaning forward a little plus a little better lower backside coverage in rain. So why only 4 stars? First off, no piece of clothing should cost this much. It's just crazy expensive. Second, a garment this pricey should be perfect. This one doesn't even have a loop on the inside to hang it up. So, they've paid a lot of attention to detail, but there's room for improvement. I'd be easier on it if it were $500.

Needs a size between 2 and 3 and longer arms
I want to love this jacket! I got the size 2 then returned for 3 and will return it as well.
I'm 6'1" 185 athletic build, shortish torso, longish arms
(Yeah i know, Ape is definitely in my Heritage...)
Sadly I want this jacket to work, It looks great and non-moto so I was hopeful.

On the size 2, the waist girth and length were perfect! The shoulders with armor ride up on towards top of shoulders :(
The bottom 2" of elbow armor touches elbow, so most of armor was on my upper arm/tricep area.
Riding position was really snug in shoulders and about 2" gap between gloves and jacket.

So, I exchanged for size 3..

Shoulder armor good, elbow armor better but point of elbow was in middle of pad, not in elbow cup.
Sleeves only an inch gap to gloves
Length of body was much longer, it was under my butt seated.
Girth is ridiculous! I could smuggle a large turkey in the belly area.
Sigh. Maybe just my build but, it seems the size 3 was built for a big all around guy.

And size 2 was built for thinnish hipster guy.
Beautiful jacket! Just doesn't fit me well.

Can't speak to airflow as I haven't tried it riding so as not to void return policy, just sat/played on the bike making vroom, vroom noises...

Ape nation be warned

How would this jacket be for warmer summer riding?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Works very well. I have the grey color, better than anything black. It ventilates sooo well. Upper back vents, rear lower back vents, pit zip vents, and the front chest pockets dual use vents. I live in south Florida, enough said.
Does this (or any other Aether jacket) have a hidden stash pocket anywhere? I am thinking of the kind you find in the inside back of Klim jackets.
Royce K on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it just has a single inside pocket, just inside the left front panel. Not hidden or "stashed". I suppose you could stick something into the back protector pocket, but that's far from ideal.
What size chest does 4xl equate to for Aether jackets?
