Roadcrafter Classic Two Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on January 18, 2013):
I purchased my two piece in October. First the good (so far). The suit is easy to put on and take off and I have a suit now that can deal with all elements of weather. Before, I use to cary several different pants and jackets. I also like the protection. Something, I never really rode with in the past.
Now the bad. My work commute is 17 miles one way. I finally was able to test it a month ago in a heavy rain and the suit leaked in the crotch. I reviewed the instructions that come with it and applied Seamgrip around the area where it appeared to be leaking. Today, I rode home in another downpour. Sure enough, it leaked like a siv after 15 miles. Right through my pants underneath to my skin. The only thing I can think is that when you are seated, the water willl come in through the zipper area. So, if it does this after 15 miles what will it do after 100 mile ride in a heavy rain? Like I said, good for light rain. Not good for heavy. I'm not sure if there is a suit out there that is 100% waterproof but for the amount I paid for this suit. I would expect it to be close. And I was wearing cheap rain suits before that never did that. Looks like I'll have to get some rain pants to wear under this suit. Would not recommend purchasing again.
