Details

The R-3 Stealth version is an all black suit, including the double-layer abrasion-resistant layers of 1000d fabric at the elbow/shoulder/knee areas. Additional 500d Cordura panels are used to replace the distinctive 3M Scotchlite reflectives to create a suit that takes on a traditional old-school industrial look. Black.


The R-3 (Roadcrafter 3) is the third-generation one piece Aerostich suit. It is 100% waterproof and unlined for maximum airflow, yet slips quickly and easily over your street clothes. Its full-length waterproof zipper entry system is fast, and it doesn’t flutter or flap in the wind. Without a lining it wears cooler, and with seam-sealed rainproof zippers you’ll also stay completely dry, even during the wettest conditions.

Each R-3 takes more than an hour longer to manufacture than previous Roadcrafters, but it’s worth it. You’ll enjoy higher levels of performance, comfort, and protection on every ride. And like its predecessor Roadcrafters, the R-3 is constructed of Aerostich’s exclusive American-made mil-spec 500d Cordura® GORE-TEX® fabric. It’s a strong, long-lasting and highly abrasion-resistant material ideal for this use. (Made-in-USA military gear is the other stuff to have this.)

For increased protection there’s a double layer of this fabric across the seat, and added 1000d abrasion-resistant layers covering the vital elbow/shoulder/knee areas. Beneath each of these is a superior energy absorbing system utilizing removable, oversized TF impact armor. Each armor attachment point is adjustable to allow fit to be fine-tuned for comfort and ensure it stays in place for best protection. Separately available hip, spine and chest armor options further increase the R-3’s capabilities.

With its oversize two-slider underarm vents, a two-slider back vent and magnetic clasps to hold open the fold-down dual-height collar, you ride cool and protected at the same time. As temps drop and when precipitation comes you’ll remain cozy and dry, too, because the adjustable Ultrasuede collar fits comfortably around your neck, even with varying base-layers.

Additional features include flap covered hip-side water resistant zippers for fast access to your street pants, a hidden pass-thru port for an electric liner power cord, nine strategically placed everyday-useful pockets, a mini-carabiner helmet holder at the upper chest pocket, a highly water-resistant inner wallet/phone/iPod pocket, fit-adjustable ankle and wrist tabs, articulated knees, fit-adjustable waist tabs and an integrated stretch panel across the lower back. There’s also oversize 3M Scotchlite® reflective areas across the back, chest and ankles to enhance conspicuity in low light conditions.

Over 30 standard color combinations give each R-3 a personalized style, and add-on options include Integrated Boot Raincovers, electrically heated and non-heated Chest Insulation and Impact Pads, an Emergency Medical Info Pocket, and detachable arm and thigh Map and Accessory Pockets.

Six available body colors: black, grey, red, hi-viz lime yellow, tan, or cobalt blue. Six standard abrasion area colors: black, grey, red, hi-viz lime yellow, cobalt blue, or pink. Machine washable. Men’s sizes 34 regular, 36–54 short, regular or long. Women’s sizes 2-20. Made in USA and imported.

Additional Information

More Info

We can adjust the sleeve lengths, elbow armor position, leg length, knee armor position, and many other variables, but we cannot change the body/torso length. For semi-custom fitted garments, we start with the body/torso size that is the closest and change the arms and legs as needed.

A great fit is critical to the long-term enjoyment and satisfaction of any garment. This is something we do better than anyone else with graded off the rack sizes. There are about 32 standard R-3 sizes vs. about 8 with typical S, M, L, XL grading. If the crotch in an R-3 is slightly binding, the garment will never have a chance to become your 'go to' riding gear, and I'd like it to have that chance.

One piece coveralls are the best gear for day-to-day short-hop utility riding because they work as a complete protection system all in one garment. But like mechanic's and trade-worker's coveralls, for comfort the crotch needs to be low enough to never bind.

How to Get a Functional, Comfortable One-Piece Suit Fit:

Start with your height and body length…For a person’s given overall height, some will have longer-bodies-with-shorter-legs, and others have shorter-bodies-with-longer-legs. And after a suit is sewn and assembled, essentially, there is no simple way to then make your suit’s torso length (the distance from crotch to collar) either shorter or longer. A few specialized alterations can help slightly, but they are Band-Aids.

Garage mechanics and others who wear coveralls for a living know a lowish crotch and baggy seat means they’ll be able to raise their arms upward fully and comfortably. When you do this arm-raising, the torso section of a riding suit slides upwards about 1.5". The shoulder pads pull it that way. When you lower your arm the torso should slide back downward.

If you are a borderline size, part-way between an ‘S’ (short) and an ‘R’ (regular), go with the longer body length of the ‘R’. And if you are between an ‘R’ and an ‘L’ (long), go with the longer body of the ‘L’. Consider the extra body length of an ‘R’ or an ‘L’ in each size, which is about 1.3" more than that of an ‘S’ or an 'R' if you are between lengths and ride a sport bike or want maximum freedom-of-movement. Then adjust/alter leg and sleeve length as needed to your size. For a comfortable coverall fit, with your raised arms out to your side and horizontal (both at the same time), you should still have slight room at the crotch.

The suit’s torso, sleeve and leg diameters are exactly the same for each ‘S’, ‘R’ and ‘L’ version of a particular size. For example, the 38S, 38L and 38R dimensions around your body are identical. The circumferences of legs, sleeve and torso are the same.

The suit’s leg lengths are correct if, when standing normally, the hem breaks (wrinkles) slightly against the front of your riding boot, just above the foot’s arch, and the top edge of the TF knee impact armor cup is positioned near the center of your kneecap. Then, as you sit on your bike, the hem will rise about 1.5” and the knee armor cup will slide upward and center itself over your bent knee.

The suit’s sleeves are the correct length if, when standing normally with your arms hanging loosely by your sides, they end about mid-way between your knuckles and your wrist, measured at the back of your hand. The center of the TF impact armor elbow cup should be centered on, or very slightly below, your elbow.

Specialized Motorcycle Configuration Considerations:

For comfort with low handle bars and higher positioned rear set footrests, all one-piece riding suits fit better with the ‘Extra Forward Rotated Sleeve’ alterations, and may also benefit from an ‘ellipse’ added to the center of the back. In addition, an ‘expanded knee’ alteration is available which provides slightly more space for knee armor when knees are bent more sharply.

For active off-road riding requiring maximum freedom-of-movement and upper-arm ease, underarm ‘V’ gussets may be added to increase upper sleeve diameter and provide extra room across upper chest and shoulder areas.
