Transit 2 Two Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on September 14, 2012):
I recently purchased my second Transit suit. My first did a stellar job for over a year, resisting the worst the elements could throw at me. Unfortunately, it met an early demise after a careless motorist t-boned me in traffic. I am happy to say the Transit likely helped reduce my injuries dramatically (no "road rash" at all, armour points protected the pointy bits). Sadly, the suit was effectively trashed, and given the complexity, I can see why they cannot repair it in house.
The crash replacement arrived just in time for my September road trip. I wore that suit for 8 to 10 hours a day for six days from Vancouver, th NoCal and back. Even in the heat of central Cali and southern Oregon, I was comfortable with the rear vent open wide, and the main zip lowered to allow air flow. Comfy indeed.
As to rain proof, yeah it is. I live in Vancouver, BC. We get more rain here in some months than some places will see in an entire year. I commute daily by M/C. I always arrive at my destination bone dry.
The suit's first real trial was a day ride back from Olympia. WA to Vancouver on the I-5 in May of last year. Poured rain the entire way. 5 1/2 hours of PNW downpour. And I stayed dry and warm.
The suit works. And is worth the price. Plus, I think it looks sharp as well. Leathers without having to look like either a Power Ranger or a Pirate. yeah, baby!
