Difference between 2-layers and 3-layers
we once again come to the difference between 2 categories of waterproof touring jackets:
>2 layers waterproof touring jackets (such as Spidi Voyager-1 and Voyager-2): they usually have an external layer which is stitched to an inner waterproof membrane (this type of membrane is called "z-liner"). Water can come across the external shield but it's blocked by the membrane. These type of jackets often feature a removable thermal liner.
>3 layers waterproof touring jackets (such as Spidi Voyager 3): the external shield is usually not waterproof and can feature generous and really working air intakes; the waterproof membrane under that is removable; under the membrane there's usually a detachable thermal liner.
The main advantage of 3-layers is that they are very well vented and light once you remove both the membrane and the thermal liner; if you instead ride fully equipped (3 layers) you have same level of comfort (if not better) as 2-layers even in cold conditions.
Spidi is the inventor of the 3-layers jacket and for that reason its touring line is second to none; you can see how the system works here.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for your attention.
