Transit Leather Suit in England Review by johnj
I bought this suit in the sale at a fantastic price.The quality is excellent, the fit is fantastic with no breaking in period. I did a 200mile trip at the weekend with a period of heavy rain and could not believe how well the suit performed. I also have a Roadcrafter and Darien but the Transit is now my first choice for any journey. As with all Aerostich products it is worth every pound spent.Buy one today you will not regret it.

follow up Review by dances with roads
I am starting my fourth season with this suit and this is a follow up...
Since I live in Colorado, the temperatures vary quite a bit - even in high summer. Temperature in the 40s to the 90s in one day are not unusual, so in conjunction with the Kanestu electric liner (the one with the vodka bladder), the suit performs exceptionally well in these conditions.

By now the suit is pretty well broken in and fits perfectly. And while I thought my previous Roadcrafter was comfortable on the bike, this leather is more so. It feels more substantial and personal.
I have found that when using the liner it is best to zip the suit together before donning the liner. That zipper is finicky, true. But to me it is a small thing - in light of the quality of the remainder of the suit.

The Absolute Best Suit at Any Price Review by Thomas
I have to admit I was a little skeptical buying a $1600 suit via online. But the truth is it really is better than described.
The quality is incredible. The fit goes like this: I am a 6' 215lb average build guy, this suit fits me like a glove! So if you are on the heavier side you will have to size up a little. I found the sizing chart to be dead on for me. I honestly could not believe it!
As far as cold and hot, this suit really nails it. It's comfort range for me seems to be from the 50s to the 80s. In that temp range you will be VERY comfortable. Over 80 it gets warm and under 50 you will need additional layers. Wind does not penetrate this suit. As far as water goes, forget about getting wet. It is totally dry. DOES NOT LEAK.
While heavy at first the suit has zippers that are first class and is made from very high quality leather and SUPER COMFORTABLE!!!
Totally worth the money!!!! (Posted on 3/24/14)
Still a great suit Review by Ron
This is an addendum to my 2011 review. I have now worn this suit for over 30K and cannot say enough good about it. It DOES NOT LEAK!
Yeah, it is heavy and can be hot, but as I said in my first comments, just about everything with any real protection is hot in summer climes. When you hit the pavement sliding, any number of hot, sweaty days will seem a cheap price to have paid.
If you can afford it, this is the suit to wear! (Posted on 9/19/13)
Great Suit....BUT can't be altered by Aerostitch Review by Steve
After submitting my completed "Aerostitch Sizing Tool" and talking on the telephone and via email, I ordered my Transit Suit based on the recommendations of Aerostitch Customer Service. They were very helpful during the ordering and sizing process.

The suit fits very well. The jacket sleeves may be about 1/2 inch long, but other than that the waist and chest of the jacket are perfect. The pants fit perfect in the waist, inseam, and length of the legs.

However, the knee pads are about 2 inches too low. Which is to be expected because not everybody has the same makeup.

My problem is...I have talked with three different customer service reps today, and they all state that they cannot do any alterations (raise the knee pads) on the Transit Suit.... "because it is made overseas".

Aerostitch has their name on the suits, markets and sells the suits, (at a hefty cost) but refuses to stand by their product and tailor it to meet the specific needs of each individual. I am sure they realize everyone has specific body measurements since they offer alterations on their other products.

In the short time I have had the suit, I've ridden in 95* temperatures, 60* mornings and in heavy rain. The suit performs as advertised.

However, I cannot recommend this suit, unless you have the additional funds to pay for alterations locally.

Rain (and mud) Review by Geoff
2nd trip to Argentina. First trip no rain, just dust. This time, no dust, just rain and mud. I was totally dry and comfortable but my Transit suit looks like I was rolling around in a barnyard, but again, the suit dried quickly, and was a joy on the dry days. Temperatures ran from 90 down to 45 so I started with t-shirts and worked my way into thermals. This suit just never fails to impress. (Posted on 4/27/13)
rough start but high hopes Review by 05VFR
I’ve been looking at the Transit for a couple of years and finally pulled the trigger. I’m 5’8”, 150 pounds, 31” waist, and ride a 2005 Honda VFR. Ordered 40R jacket and 32R pants. Jacket sleeves were a little long so I exchanged for a 40S. Unfortunately, the exchange was missing a back pad and the main zipper would stick. Customer service was great but they wouldn’t have another exchange jacket for about 6 months. I really wanted to like the jacket so kept it as-is hoping the zipper would loosen with wear.

The jacket fits fine but is a little roomy around the waist. I agree with the reviews about the jacket sleeves being uncomfortable and full length zipper on the pants pinching a little. I’ve only put a hundred miles on the suit and assume this will all smooth out as it breaks in. I’ll follow up with more detail after a couple thousand miles on the suit.

Incredible Suit Review by Fletch Lives
I was a bit reticent to spend the dough on this suit, but after reading the reviews and thinking how important it is to be safe, and dry (I live in rain country - Seattle), I decided to jump.
I am 6'0", 190lbs with 33/33 pants and an athletic build. My plan was to get something sized so that I could wear clothing underneath.
I wasn't super confident about what size to get, but thankfully ended up near perfect. My jacket is a 44 and I can comfortably wear a sweater and heated jacket underneath. My pants are a 38. While I think I might be slightly better off with 36 pants, the 38's work fine. I always wear jeans with a belt and wear a second belt on the pants. The cool thing is when sitting on the bike, there's essentially no gap between the pant and jacket for cold air or rain to get in and I think the 2 belts really make that possible. So overall I am pleased with the fit. When it gets warm enough that I don't wish to wear jeans under, I'll have to see if I feel the same way but I bet it'll still be good.
The Transit is completely rainproof. I don't bother zipping the two together and after 4500 miles in it, way too much in pouring rain, I have been kept BONE DRY. Period. Bone dry. Based on that alone I am thrilled with the suit.
I essentially feel impervious to the world around me with this suit. With full pads and very thick leather, I suspect it'll protect me very well should that day come where I have a get off.
I can don and doff it quickly as well and it feels like it should last a very long time.There are plenty of other expensive suits out there that I hear are not truly waterproof. This is. I highly recommend this suit. (Posted on 1/18/13)
Addendum to: The Best Riding Gear I have ever used! Review by Kai
I just thought I would post an update to my review below. My original jacket had the shock cord waist adjustment (1st Gen Jacket). The new jacket has replaced that with d-ring and a leather pull through strip on each side. Very nice update, and a lot more comfortable than the original design.

Thank you Aerostich for making the best leather suit in the world. (Posted on 9/26/12)
This is one fine leather suit Review by L.E.
This suit is everything Aerostich claims it to be. It's a very substantial piece of leather gear. The pictures online don't do it justice at all. The armor feels great and is secure. The only thing I would change is the connecting zipper, wish it was 360 degree. This is the best suit I have ever owned. Love my Transit. Thanks for making such a fine piece of gear available.
