Roadcrafter Classic One Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on June 8, 2012):
Finally got a 1 piece RC after years of debating, researching and saving. I've only worn it 2x so far, but the fit is better than I expected! Sizing tool worked like a charm. Not as stiff as I expected based on extensive research either, although the collar is taking a little getting used to.
My previous gear was a 3/4 length Joe Rocket jacket and mesh over pants by Olympia. I've used this combo for 7 years. The Roadcrafter instantly impressed me in quality of construction and materials, but what REALLY impressed me is the knee pads fit exactly where they are supposed to and they don't move! I was constantly struggling with the Oly knee pads, they didn't want to stay put.
First ride in the RC was a 60 mile commute in moderate rain. Collar leaked, but I'm not sure I had it closed properly.
Cuffs of my pants got wet too. Don't think I had the RC's cuffs secured properly either (it was my first ride in it! there is a lot to get used too). Some rain leaked through zips, but not much. I understand its not "waterproof" so I didn't expect it to be.
Overall, I'm so glad I finally pulled the trigger on the RC and wished I did it sooner.
