My R3Review by Billy
I have about 10k miles on my R3 and I could not be happier with it. I was noticing some thunder clouds on the way in this morning and my only thought was " I may have to close my collar". I have ridden in rain and sun with temps from 17 degrees to 95 degress. I only have to make minor adjustments to my underlayers or cuff zips for all those extremes. Thanks for a great product.

What can I say?Review by 240KAR
Only have about 500 miles on this suit but so far I can say that I regret not having purchased this a long time ago. It was 92 degrees out and it wasn't too bad. When the temperatures drop the suit keeps you cozy. I'm very satisfied. (Posted on 6/21/17)
Simply AwesomeReview by Raj
I've always wanted one. I tried in the past and ended up in a set of Dariens it just seemed too much for AZ. The Dariens worked great but I always wanted the convenience of the one piece suit. I now live in CO and decided to give it another try. 2 important points, you have to try one size too small to know your perfect size and it's kind of like adopting a pet. There is a presence that you have to get used to. The only way to do it is to spend time with it. Wear it, pet it, gaze at it, ride in it. Once the energetic shift happens, you will never go back. I absolutely love this thing. It's truly a work of wearable, finely engineered, practicle art. (Posted on 4/18/17)
Wow - great improvements!Review by Pat B
I've had an original V1 Roadcrafter for more than 15 years and it was getting tired so I upgraded to the R3 and wow, so many improvements. More airflow and those magnets solve my biggest complaint with the V1 suit. I've seen 80 degree temps and heavy rain in the last week, plus 40's and it's great. I was worried about not having a liner but I really think this will be better with the improved airflow. Outstanding job Aerostitch! (Posted on 4/5/17)
The R3 is spectacularReview by Sam
The R3 is spectacular. I don't think I've ever owned a piece of kit – hell, anything – that has so thoroughly done what it said it would. We rode through some of the worst weather I've ever been through: constant, pouring rain, snow, and freezing fog, all in temperatures that stuck near or below freezing. The R3 kept me good and dry. I'm not kidding when I say I couldn't have done the ride without it. - Zach Bowman (with Sam Smith)
The ride was Seattle to Los Angeles, which we did in 32 hours, actual moving time of 29 hours, and Zach (my ride partner) and I were just blown away by the Roadcrafter. This probably isn't news to you, but man, that R-3 suit is a hell of a thing. Warm, dry, comfortable, breathable, the whole nine yards. Probably the only piece of gear I've ever tried that 100-percent lived up to the billing. Definitely the only piece of gear I've worn for 32 hours straight. Kind of fell in love with it. I'd heard good things for years but never expected to like it this much. - Sam Smith (with Zach Bowman) (Posted on 2/28/17)
Yes, it IS rainproof.Review by ran
I've had my R3 for about two months, it replaced my twenty-year-old Roadcrafter that was in decent shape, but I wanted to see if the R3 was more rain-proof than the old R1.

This past weekend I rode to Death Valley from Richmond, CA during one of the strongest storms in many years, and I was riding in rain for several hundred miles. I am happy to report that the R3 kept me dry.

The quibbles: you pay over $1K for the suit, and some of the zippers have zipper pulls, and other zippers don't. Customer Service sent me free zipper pulls when I called them about it, but for the price, all the zippers should have the handy pulls. And IMO there should be two "ports" for heated gear cables; my heated vest has the power cable on the right side, so I have to wear the vest inside-out to use the suit's left-side cable port. Not a big deal.

Also, I had to call Customer Service to find out the magic secret to actually open and USE the well-hidden cable port.

But, yes, it IS rainproof, and I was very glad to find that out.

R3 One Piece - WOWReview by kbikerider
Should have made this purchase two jackets and a pair of riding pants ago. If you are seriously considering a one piece don't waste any more of your valuable time! I purchased this using the sizing chart and the online sizing system (you must be honest with yourself to get the sizing right).

The suit arrived mid Jan, I tried it on with my normal riding layers and then with my heated suit as well. I have not worn any of my other gear at all. The suits fits perfectly. Did I say it fits perfectly?

What I mean to say is this suit is frigin awesome! (Posted on 2/10/17)
I love it!Review by Rory
My suit arrived nearly two weeks ago; I love it. As former military, professional sailmaker and currently a Master Ducati technician I value quality, ease of use and engineering which ultimately leads to function.
Once zipped up the feeling of security is comparable to my full leather but with no pockets and way easier to get into. The gear just makes me want to get on my Gran Canyon and go someplace i’ve never been. Once I get a break from the boss at Houston Superbikes that’s what I intend to do. My exposure to customers is an everyday occurrence and the R3 is an interesting talking point…even the Dianese rep admitted there is nothing better; he also said they’re pricey and coming from a bloke who administers that line his words carry some weight. As a wise Southern Belle said to me “Buy once, cry once.”
I really do appreciate what y’all have done and my sailmakers eye can’t find fault with construction.
Thanks for the work and please convey my thanks to all involved……especially the ones sitting behind machines sewing and cutting……full marks!

Am l happy, you bet!Review by Hume
Well I finally have an Aerostich R-3 suit. It has only taken three years for me to order and what happens the uk pound dives in value, great timing!!
Am I happy bet..
A beautiful product . I have only had it for a week and 500miles of use, yes it is stiff
As Aerostich say " after a few hundred miles your new suit will begin to relax and soften ".
I can see I will use myR-3 for all motorcycling trips short or long.
A big thank you to all of you who made my R-3 suit and the ease of purchasing
from here in UK . Hume

Have I Told You How Much I Love My Aerostitch Suit?Review by Dave St.
41 miles each way. That's my commute here in Seattle. It includes a lot of 70mph traffic on I-90, a mountain pass and Expert Levels of congestion. I could never talk myself into year round commuting until I Finally invested in my R3 one-piece (in Hi-Viz of course!) suit. After one year with it the only time I don't commute on the bike is when the temps drop enough for black ice to form. (Seriously, that is some scary stuff!)

In the dark, in the rain, in the traffic I am there. Warm with my heated jacket set at 2 and on the worse days a neck gaiter. The R1200GSA's heated grips keeping my digits toasty.

Life is good when you ride more.

Two points to consider:
1.) Hi-Viz shows dirt the first day you ride it. Just consider it a proper patina.

2.) If you are self conscious about walking around in a big one piece suit - GET OVER IT! Just enjoy the ride.

Oh, and one more thing, the custom alterations they offer can truly tailor your suit to your physique and make the suit just that much more comfy.

Get this suit: Ride More. Arrive warm and dry. You won't regret it. (Posted on 11/2/16)
