Roadcrafter Classic One Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on September 4, 2013):
- I just bought my first brand new Roadcrafter suit. Let me say I was very happy to see they had added all the innovations from there Roadcrafter light to the regular Roadcrafter suit. It should be 100% waterproof now. This isn't my first Roadcrafter I have owned two different size and color used suits. I started with a used black 42S and fit me perfectly until I have to layer up for cold weather. I"m a 43" chest and 32 waist and 28" inseam. So I emailed Aerostich for a sizing and they suggested a 44S. So I got lucky and found a used once only 44S of ebay. It was kind of big for summer riding because I only wear shorts and tshirt under my stich in the summer but in cold weather with heated gear it fit better. Then I sold my bike and stich and took a break from motorcycling. Well my break only lasted 5 months. I got a great deal on a FZ1 and took my first ride with my old leather jacket,blue jeans and my boots. Something didn't feel right. Oh yeah I feel naked without my Roadcrafter on. So I started looking for a 42S because I didn't plan on riding when it gets really cool. Well I couldn't find a used one so I had to go for it and buy a new one. I always check Aerostich's website in the Sale section and long and behold a 42S on sale. The bonus is it had alterations that sounded like it was going to fit me perfectly even when I want to layer up for colder rides. The sleeves were rotated forward,Ellipse added and upper body gussets. I was right it fits me perfectly even with layers and my heated vest. I work for a powersports dealership. I'm a Gold certified Yamaha Technician and I could buy (at my cost) any brand riding gear we sell. I have been riding for 18 years and have tried two piece leathers and two piece textile gear but none of it compares to the Roadcrafter. Now I have owned a couple I wouldn't ride with any other riding gear. I love how it is weather protection,crash protection, and rain gear all in one suit. It's really nice to be able to buy something American made and such high quality. The first time I saw a Aerostich Roadcrafter suit was at a HSTA rally back in the 90's. I fell in love with it. But I couldn't afford one. Well several years later I finally can afford them. Dreams really do come true in America. On a different note it really dumbfounds me that I work in the motorcycle business and my coworkers laugh at me because I'm wearing a snowmobile suit or space suit. I just don't get it. Well I hope this review helps someone decide on buying the best riding gear made in America from Aerostich.
