Transit Two Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on July 26, 2013):
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.
