Roadcrafter Two Piece Suit
- Product Review (submitted on September 3, 2010):
I've had my blue 'stich for 11 years, it's really served me well. I had a spill a couple years ago and sent the suit in for repairs, got a new right arm and right leg. The damage wasn't bad but I guess that's the best way to bring the suit back up to snuff. The cost was very reasonable. The turn-around time was really quick as well. You can tell the suit was repaired only by the fading on the arms, but the blue is pretty fade resistant. I wash and waterproof twice per year, and yes, I get the crotch leak. Only for really heavy or extended rain storms though. My pads are starting to break down a bit I noticed on the spring wash.
One benefit of the two-piece that nobody has mentioned is the ability to add venting by unzipping the lower portion of the jacket while riding (two way zipper). Also good for heavy lunches. Can't do that with the one-piece.
I warn people now that if they tour with me they'll end up buying a 'stich. I think I'm up to seven converts now.
