With the Compañero World Traveller Touratech presents the third generation of the probably most universal touring suit on the market.
Based on the ingenious basic concept with summer and rain suits, the developers have realised numerous improvements in detail.
The new Compañero World Traveller
A good ten years ago Touratech entered the premium driver equipment segment with the completely new Compañero. Compañero means partner, comrade, companion. And this is exactly what the innovative textile suits are: Loyal companions in all conditions, on all types of tours. To ensure that this is the case, Touratech and its renowned manufacturing partner Stadler not only use the highest quality materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, but have also completely rethought the concept of the textile touring suit with the design principle of the Compañero. With resounding success in terms of functionality and comfort.
While the wind- and waterproof membrane is traditionally worn underneath the protector-reinforced fair weather suit, the Compañero turns the layered construction upside down.
Two separate, perfectly coordinated suits, the airy "Summer Traveller" summer suit and the weatherproof "Weather Traveller" form the functional overall system "Compañero World Traveller", whereby the weatherproof layer is only worn on the outside if necessary.
Compañero World Traveller
In warm and dry weather, the rider only wears the "Summer Traveller" suit and thus benefits from a ventilation quality and freedom of movement that otherwise only motocross clothing offers - but with maximum protection thanks to highly abrasion-resistant textile materials and integrated CE protectors. Not only the riders of Adventure Bikes appreciate this during their strenuous off-road trips, but also on summer pleasure rides or on hot days in the city the wearing comfort is unsurpassed.

In cooler or humid conditions, the "Weather Traveller" provides weather protection at the highest level. The precisely tailored textile can be quickly and comfortably pulled over the summer suit thanks to the wide opening zips.
The perfect coordination of both layers ensures a perfect fit and the highest wearing comfort. The placement of the zips on the "Weather Traveller" means that the pockets of the "Summer Traveller" are also accessible at all times.
Laying the weather protection on the outside has many practical advantages. While the outer material of conventional textile suits gets completely soaked with an inner membrane, becomes heavy and loses its wearing comfort, the rain in the "Compañero World Traveller" already rolls off the three-layer laminate of the "Weather Traveller". The summer suit remains completely dry, light and always offers a pleasant, comfortable climate.
Compañero Weather Traveller
During the development of the new "Compañero World Traveller" there was no reason to question this basic structure, which has been thoroughly tested on all continents over the last ten years. However, feedback from thousands of users and the experience gained in intensive trials by the Touratech test teams have been incorporated into the optimisation of the third generation of this high-end textile suit.
As with the previous models, the summer suit is characterised by the largest possible airflow over the upper body and legs. Two additional ventilation zippers on the jacket now provide additional ventilation in extreme conditions.
An even more robust Cordura® was chosen as the upper material of the "Summer Traveller", so that it is now certified as a class AA motorcycle protective clothing.
The Level 2 protectors, which are fitted as standard to the knees, hips, elbows, back and shoulders, also provide maximum protection. A chest protector can be retrofitted.
Numerous practical experiences were taken into account in the equipment. For example, the "Summer Traveller" has a larger smartphone pocket on the arm and an additional pocket for Keyless-Go keys on the upper arm. In addition, the two front jacket pockets are now waterproof.
In spite of all the improvements, the "Compañero Summer Traveller" naturally retains the numerous well thought-out detail solutions of its predecessors, such as the multi-compatible connection zips, which allow it to be combined with older models and even some third-party brands.
Visually, the new Compañero Summer Traveller has become even sportier and has a distinctive adventure look that correlates perfectly with its functionality.
A powerful blue in combination with grey and black is now available as an additional colour option, while the tried and tested colour variants yellow/grey and completely black are still available.
As effective weather protection, the "Weather Traveller" is made of Gore-Tex three-layer laminate. This textile material is the measure of all things when it comes to combining water and windproofness with the best breathability and extreme durability.
Because despite the 100% protection against wind and moisture, water vapour can escape almost unhindered through the micropores of the Gore-Tex membrane, so that a continuous transport of moisture from the body to the outside is guaranteed.
To achieve even better temperature regulation during heavy physical exertion, the new "Weather Traveller" has waterproof ventilation zips - two at the front and one at the back of the jacket.
The high quality material also allows separate use as functional outdoor clothing.
The jacket is still compatible with storm collar and hood. The extra-long two-way zippers on the outside of the trouser legs have also been retained, ensuring comfortable dressing and easy access to the pockets of the "Summer Traveller".
The new "World Traveller" complements the ingenious basic principle of the Compañero with numerous practical detail solutions resulting from the experience gained over a decade on the pistes and roads of the world.
