Better Suit = More Miles Review by David
I've now had the suit since late spring (i.e., newer model with new zippers) and have about 4,000 miles on it. I can say with absolute certainty that having the suit has increased the miles I ride, especially commuting. I normally wear nice slacks and sport coat, or even a suit, and live in Portland OR, where rain is common for most of the year. Having the Roadcrafter this spring and early summer really allowed me to ride a lot more often, safely. That is, with the one-piece step in/out functionality of the suit, I found that I was much more likely to "Ride There" with much less regard for the weather; just slip the suit on over my dress cloths, throw the sport coat or suit jacket in the trunk (a Givi on the back of my Concours 14) and off to work I go, along with several midweek trips for meetings. Add that fact that the Roadcraft is probably the most safe riding gear I own (my Shoei aside) and .... tada ..... more miles! I've also worn the suit while riding through the northern Nevada desert this summer, with shorts and t-shirt under the suit, and believe I did a lot better than my friend who wore a mesh jacket.

My only "complaint" is that I always have difficulty when riding with the top zipper down a ways. When I stop the zipper always has difficutly going back to the top (which is necessary to take the suit off). At first I thought it was just stiff, being new, but now I'm not sure what the problem is; e.g., bent teeth or crooked pull??

Anway, with with that minor glich, I still give the suit 9.5 stars. I'm selling much of the other gear (several other jackets, pants, etc.) so watch E-Bay! <LOL> (Posted on 9/6/11)
Works Great! Review by chriso
In short: Turn 6, Laguna Seca, Track Day, Low Side, not a scratch on me. My Roadcrafter worked exactly as intended. Sending it in for some minor repairs. The venting and the zippers make it convenient in the street as well. (Posted on 8/23/11)
Saved my life in July Review by MikeT-NYC
On 7/23/11, my rear tire blew out on the Palisades Parkway in NY State heading down to NYC. According to the police, I slid 225 feet at highway speed in my Roadcrafter suit, full-face Snell-rated helmet, gloves and engineer boots. The result -- a broken collarbone, a couple of cracked ribs, and a broken 5th metacarpal (or whatever they call it) for the little finger on my right hand, which wasn't the suit's fault.

I also had a LOT of bruises and am in rehab now for the collarbone, but without the Roadcrafter and other gear, I'd be dead now (and it would be a closed-casket funeral due to the corpse's condition).

Essential Riding Gear Review by Steve
I've owned my roadcrafter one piece for over 10 years. It's kind of faded, but it fits me like an old pair of shoes. People often look at me in a funny way when I am wearing my roadcrafter in a restaurant or gas station. It makes an unusual fashion statement to those who are unaware of motorcycle apparel.

For the first year of ownership, riding in the new roadcrafter felt like being in a cardboard box. It was pretty stiff and I wasn't sure that I liked it. Over time, it grows remarkably comfortable.

It is bearable in hot weather and is wonderful in normal to colder riding temperatures. I have been caught out in weather as cold as the upper 30's and my roadcrafter has saved the day. (Posted on 7/28/11)
Wonderful to be alive Review by denniso
My wife has been bugging for a long time to write to you and thank you for your suit. I really haven’t had the inclination to do so until now. I had a one piece roadcrafter suit that I bought several years ago. I had worn it fairly often and loved the suit- the quality and fit were outstanding. In September of 2010 I had purchased a used CBR1000RR unfortunately with a badly worn front tire. I had intended to replace it on Monday, but as with any new bike, I just couldn’t let it not be ridden. On Sunday, I went for a leisurely ride in one of our finest canyons. Returning home in late morning, the bike slipped out from underneath me and I went skidding. I believe I was going about 70 mph when things went wrong and I know the bike left me because my leg did not get caught under the bike and the outside of my left boot is scraped from the pavement. I skidded along the road on my back for quite some time and then hit a highway metal delineator post with the top of my left shoulder. Thank goodness for the armor in the shoulder of the suit, because of it, I only cracked my shoulder blade, collar bone and six ribs. Had it not been for your suit I am certain I would have been dead. It wasn’t too long before I was in the ambulance and in the hospital. Unfortunately they cut my suit off, so it is ruined, but it certainly did the job. I was released the next day, after they determined that I had only cracked some bones and none were broken. I was black and purple for several weeks on my entire left side. I didn’t feel like taking any pix at the time but I guess I should have.

I just really wanted to say that everything in my suit was engineered wonderfully. The placement of the panels and protective pieces were absolutely correct and I cannot say enough that they definitely saved my life.

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread... Review by Craig
...Or maybe sliced bread is the best thing since the Roadcrafter since they've been around for so long.

I was very hesitant about spending the cost of a new RC 1 piece, but it really is the best piece of riding gear I have ever used. I found it to be pretty stiff initially, but after a few good rides it will loosen up and feel more comfortable. I was also nervous about sizing, but Aerostich's personalized sizing was right on the money. What amazes me is that there literally is no extra bulk - nothing flaps in the breeze while riding (except the collar a little when rolled down, although that appears to be fixed since the new versions have snaps). I've found that I don't really feel comfortable riding in jeans and a plain riding jacket anymore, both because of the lack of total protection and the loose fit.

A few other points... I've ridden about 3k miles now since I got mine and it has not leaked, period. I find that it actually isn't that warm in colder weather, which isn't a huge deal when wearing layers and/or using heated gear. It is tolerable up to about 95 degrees with lightweight wicking clothing underneath and moves air pretty well. There are many pockets, but they are all a bit on the small/tight side, which is okay for me since I generally only like carrying my wallet, cell phone, maps and garage door opener while riding. Sometimes I wish I had gone with the 2 piece suit when stopping, but overall I like the 1 piece suit for most riding situations. It forces you to ATGATT, which in my opinion, trumps the ability to separate the top and bottom.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the Roadcrafter. I wish I had bought one years ago instead of trying several jacket & pants combos that never came close to working as well as the RC1P. Sometimes you get what you pay for, and in this case, that is certainly true. (Posted on 6/30/11)

Stiff at First, Puddles around the Lap Area Review by Beemster
Overall, a well thought out, high-quality tailored riding suit.

I've had the one piece for 3 mos. I've logged 40 hrs. Temps as low as 50 deg F and as high as 90 deg F. No problems w/ temps. At higher temps staying moving and keeping the vents open works fine. I wear a Knox chest and back protector under my suit too -- still not too hot. The suit was stiff at first but conformed to my body after about 8 hrs of riding. Now I hardly notice it. I have a BMW F800S, which has very high footpegs and fairly low bars -- no problems with the stock tailoring. I love the pockets! I've been through a couple downpours with it on. Even with the new rubber zippers, I get a nice wet spot in my lap. The water puddles and seeps through the suit there. Other than that the suit drys quickly. I carry a cable lock to loop through the sleeve and lock to my bike for when I stop. I wear Knox hip protectors too and the suit still fits just fine around my "athletic" waist area. Oh, and I love the zipper system. It's a little bit of a balancing act getting my Combat Lite through the right leg, but the suit goes on and comes off as advertised. Also, the high viz yellow draws admiring glances from everyone for miles around. I ride in the DC Metro area (worst traffic in the USA), so being visible is a definite extra layer of protection.

Bottom line -- I'd buy it again. You just have to sport a look of confidence as you take off your suit after riding through a rainstorm and stare down anyone who starts to laugh at the wet spot around your "mid section". :-) (Posted on 6/8/11)
Alvaro Aparicio (Customer 217273) Review by Susan
I purchased my first Aerostich two piece suit in March 1,991, at the moment I have gained
30 pounds since and as you can imagine, it fits like a ballet suit, to tight. Time to get a new one. This suit has traveled with me from sout h Germany to Nord Cape in Norway, going down trough Finland to the Soviet Union in that time (Leningrad).
From Alaska to Panama; from the west coast to the east coast in USA. I can tell that is the best of the best. My compliments to the Chef.

Changed my riding life Review by DTz
I Just can't say how much this suit has changed the way I get ready for a ride - faster than ever - thats how. I don't think I get it on in ten seconds as I saw somewhere but certainly in 30 seconds, maybe less.
My only "time consuming" part is getting the top zipper engaged and I'm getting faster.

I had some custom fitting done and it was well worth the wait (maybe a few days extra overall) Just can't say it enough.

The ordering process was fantastic from start to finish. Ida would have it no other way, if you know what I mean. Five star double plus customer service.

I live in Southern California and have not ridden thru the summer yet. I'm thinking I may have a few warm days ahead of me but wouldn't change it for the protection I'm wearing, not to mention the perfect amount and well placed pockets. As for the winter months the most I wore extra under the Road-crafter One-Piece was a pair of jeans and a long sleeved lightweight fleece or wicking shirt and not very often.

To sum it up this riding suit was worth every penny I saved for it and plan on doing it again in 10 to 15 years, for sure-!!

-Best, DTz
