- Just had my maiden voyage...Review by Charles Hebard
Just had my maiden voyage of 1500 miles in my new roadcrafter that I bought out of existing stock online. I rode from northeastern Pennsylvania to Tennesee on the Blue Ridge Parkway and back again. The first day it rained the entire day. The last day it rained all the way home. The suit stayed bone dry and warm. Most mornings were 40F and by mid afternoon around 80F. It is true that if you open up the zips and sleeve cuffs , the breeze keeps everything quite cool. I was asked by several people if it was too hot in the suit. Honestly, it was perfect! I was surprised. I really like all the pockets and visibility and most of all the protection. One guy said that I looked like a walking advertisement for BMW. OH well, I have been called worse. Anyway, I am heading north to Americade on Sunday and it will be hot and wet as usual. The knowlege that the suit is additonal protection will bring addtional peace of mind to this sport touring adventure rider.
It was alot of money for me to spend, but the quality of this suit and the protection it provides speaks for the "investment" of a lifetime. Thanks for making a really awesome product.

- My roadcrater is going on...Review by Dean aka BMWloco
My roadcrater is going on, oh ancient. 1989 or 90, I forget.
One Iron Butt, one 75 mile off on Hwy. 276 outside Brevard, NC, my "hotel" at the Moto Guzzi Rally in Cruso, NC with Iron Butt winner Steve Attwood (someone burned the picnic table for warmth).
Oh, then there's the trip across the US (4 times), around New Zealand and Australia solo, big parts of Canada too.
It may be time for another suit. I dunno though, this one still works in the pouring rain I just rode through. (Posted on 5/15/08)
- I bought mine 3 years ago...Review by Michael Chong
- I bought mine 3 years ago, black with ballistic custom orange. Kinda pricey but worth every penny. I wear the one piece suit starting in fall when the rain & cold starts, thru spring when it starts to warm and it hits 80deg.F. Aerostich description is true in all counts, kept me dry in hard torrents til I'm almost at work then the zippers leaks where the knees bend, just like they describe(about an hours ride). Other than that in light to medium rains I'm bone dry(except where it drips down my neck opening). Custom made to fit, comfortable to wear all day on long trips. Now , if I could only figure out a way so that the rain doesn't run down my sleeves & into my rain gauntlets & down my neck it would be perfect but hey thats the adventure of extreme weather riding. Ape hangers on my Buell might solve the glove problem hahaha. Love all the pockets too. I give the one piece suit an Excellent rating well worth it. (Posted on 5/15/08)
- I've had the Roadcrafter ...Review by Dave Roszina
- I've had the Roadcrafter for a year now, and it is by far the most "all encompassing" suit around. Weather, abrasion, and impact protection are second to none. Style is unique, but still presentable and ease of on/off makes it a suit you will u (Posted on 5/15/08)

In January 2005,I drove to Duluth, MN from Mt. Gilead, OH, to be fitted for my one piece suit, as I am 5'11" and 275lbs. Three weeks later my suit arrived. I have worn it for about 45,000 miles. I have been comfortable in it from a low of 10F( with areostich heated jacket) to 105F (although I was on the freeway at the hotter temp with every vent open. I have the yellow HI VIZ, and would not get anything but. You get some looks, but hey, if you ride all year round, you are going to get looks any way. I have had two low speed get offs without a scratch. I have ridden in pouring rain all day on both a FLHTC and a CBR1000RR. No wet crotch, however a little on the right leg zipper lower, no big deal. Changes I would make:
1. Zip pocket on both sleeves, as you hold in the clutch you can pay tolls.
2. Removable velcroed in storm gators on the pant legs, to stop cold air when your feet are up on the hiway pegs.
3. More reflective strips on front, back, sleeves and legs, so if you are working on your bike on the side of the road, or helping someone, you are more visible.
4. MP3 or Cell phone pocket high on the left chest inside the suit.
5. Heated pants and boot inserts like the jacket.
I would pay additionally for these features.
Keep up the great work, as you have a great product. Would not even consider riding anywhere without it. (Posted on 5/15/08)

I have read many good things about the one piece suit and most of it very good except long hours in the rain leaks in the groin area because of the zipper design of the one piece suit. I wondered what the maker of the suit had to say about that occasional comment and also wondered how the suit would handle cold temperatures day after day in Spring rides on the Alaska Highway.

- Last fall, I rolled my bi...Review by Jason Goray
Last fall, I rolled my bike in the middle of nowhere, SD.
I landed on the bike and the bike landed on me.
Thanks to the suit, I was completely uninjured. I'm so glad I was wearing it and the spine insert.
The bike didn't get off so lucky but with some macguyvering and a bunch of very cool guys with a workshop 40 miles later, I managed to keep going for the remaining 8 days of my trip.
Without the suit, I would have been done, and given the remoteness of our location and lack of any cell signals, I very possibly would be dead. (Posted on 4/21/08)

- I bought a like new second hand suit and I am glad I did. I low sided my R1150GS during and off road school and I was ejected from the motorcycle, thrown into the air, and landed exactly on the top of my left shoulder bone. I was wearing my one piece suit and the integrated shoulder pads distributed the impact, preventing serious shoulder injury. I was a 25 mile an hour lawn dart. My shoulder is sore but the xrays were negative. The shoulder pads did there job. (Posted on 3/5/08)
- I started with a high viz...Review by Mike Pasley
I started with a high viz jacket 6 years ago. Then got the pants. After 30K it was time for a replacement.
I did the same thing again, I ride every day in California, where this year it has been monsoon season. This high viz suit has over 30 K on it, I ordered it big for layering so no matter how cold it is, I am toasty with a BMW heated vest and hand grips. The suit is not that comfortable to go shopping in, but that is what it is made for. It is made for protection from cages and weather and it does the job. I arrive at work neat and safe.
The high viz and retro reflective tape make me a road warrior with a brain.
It has so much storage that it is like a suitcase you wear. I will never change and the customer service is not an oxymoron. Another benifit hey it is made in America by Americans and they had no problem putting a bunch of USMC patches on the back of my suit. :)
