Roadcrafter Light One Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on June 11, 2013):
I have this suit about 2 years now and have used it about 30 times, all short commutes under the rain.
3 comments 2 are minor but the last would require repair.
1. the heat seam on the little pouch containing the collar button magnet has come undone after repeated cycles of use. I am guessing the magnet is so good that it actually pulled the heat seam apart and i found it out of the pouch and stuck on its mating surface. Else i would have lost it! I used super glue as a dirty fix and no issues there after.
2. the fabric around the inner elbows have started leaking a little but still holding up well compared to many other suits (BMW, AXO, Hein Gericke, etc) i've tried. note that i ve never performed any maintenance or reproofing of the suit. Use, dry, fold, store, and repeat.
3. Some of the beefy plastic zipper teeth on the main zipper has deformed with use and rendered the suit unzipperable and unsuable. This i ll have to get repaired unfortunately. I heard though that after the initial batches they now have a better quailty zipper.
Even with all these and before the last one. the suit was very good and performed as advertised!
