Product Description

Details

Thirty years on this fully lined Roadcrafter has been worn in every type of weather to nearly every place you can get to on a motorcycle. It is the original suit for everyday, all-distance commuting and touring.

Its luxurious full lining slips easily over your street clothes, and the outer shell is tailored to minimize wind flutter and drag at higher speeds.

More than three decades of experience have proven the Roadcrafter Classic's superior impact and abrasion-protection, and it's all-weather capabilities. The suit is literally covered with innovations for riders: 3M high-visibility Scotchlite™ reflective, nine strategically placed everyday-useful external pockets, six standard oversize TF impact armor pads, provisions for optional removable arm and thigh map pockets, optional hip armor and impact protection spine armor, effective water resistant zippered underarm and back vents, flapped hip-side zippers for access to your street pants, an all-day comfortable Ultrasuede collar, and a variety of adjustable tabs and zippers that allow you to custom fine-tune the fit.

Each one piece Roadcrafter Classic is about attention to each detail, real-world riding needs and meticulous craftsmanship. It's constructed of Made-in-USA mil-spec 500 Denier Cordura® GORE-TEX® outer fabric, ballistic nylon and a high pic Supernyl lining fabric.

Compared to traditional leather gear you'll ride warmer when it's cool, drier when it's wet and cooler when it's hot.

Five standard body colors: black, grey, hi-viz lime yellow, orange, or tan. Six standard ballistics colors: black, grey, hi-viz lime yellow, cobalt blue, red, or silver. Machine washable. Men's sizes 34 regular, 36–54 short, regular or long. Women's sizes 2-20 short, regular or long (these feature a smaller neck, narrower shoulder, more defined waist, and extra hip room). Made in USA

Between Sizes:

Overall length* difference is 1 14".

  • Example - 42 (S, R or L) suit is 1 14" longer (taller) overall than a size 40 (S, R or L) suit.

Short to Regular:

Overall length* difference is 3".

  • Example - A 42S is 3" shorter than a 42R.
  • Leg length difference is +1" above & +12" below the knee. The remaining 1 12" is in the Torso.
  • Sleeve difference is 1 14", shoulder to wrist.

Regular to Tall:

Overall length* difference is 2".

  • Example - A 42L is 2" longer (taller) than a 42R.
  • Leg length difference is +12" above knee & +12" below the knee. The remaining 1" is in the Torso.
  • Sleeve difference is 1".

* Overall length = collar to ankle

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.

It's niceReview by sean
I've had the one-piece roadcrafter suit for almost a full season now. I am very pleased with the craftsmanship, materials and the people at Aerostich. The suit is made from excellent materials and assembled with skill. It will take you quite a bit of practice to get in and out of the suit easily. I used to get very frustrated with getting my boot through the right pant hole, but now it's easy.

I do have some complaints about the suit: First is that a one-piece suit is very hard to size properly. I had to send one back because it was too short in the torso. The next size up was so big it looked like a clown suit. Plus the knee pads hang too low now. I got bad advice from the sizing professional at Aerostich who recommended a size that would not have solved my problem. I ended up with a suit that works, but I am not at all satisfied with the fit. I'll be taking it to a local tailor for alterations. I don't blame Aerostich- it's just that body part ratios are so different from person to person.

The other gripe I have is about the pockets. The left breast pocket is tiny and difficult to access. And the pass-through back of it is a pretty useless gimmick. They should have made the left breast pocket just like the right one which is cavernous and useful. The front leg pockets are also difficult to access because the tops of them are horizontal instead of ergonomically slanted. The hook and loop closure on those pockets is unacceptable in this day and age and should be replaced with zippers. And one final rant is that the neck closure sucks. That is one very important feature as any rider knows. The zipper should go all the way up instead of ending 5 inches short. The velcro neck closure stinks.

I really like the suit despite the complaints. This is a ton of money for a suit with some flaws and it might not fit your body type. Another thing to consider is the bulk of the suit. It's heavy and not very compactable. My 46L can be compacted down to about the size of a 5 gallon bucket if you really cram it. I find the suit useful for just about any weather- rain or shine, and temps from 25 to 100 F. Of course it's hot when you're not moving, but the vents work well in the heat. The easy on/off makes it great for rest stops on long summer tours. (Posted on 8/20/09)
Big Red (aka my red/black one-piece Roadcrafter)Review by larrylarry75.blogspot.com
I just finished an 11,000 mile ride from the southern Oregon coast to Nova Scotia and back. "Big Red" aka my Roadcrafter one-piece suit was my main outfit be it rain or shine.

There were times when the Roadcrafter was too heavy in extreme heat so I donned my Bohn armored shirt along with their pants under my jeans. The neat thing about this set up was I could easily put on the 'Stich without any mods. What I did was remove the knee pads from the 'Stich and when I had to put it back on - usually because a thunderstorm kicked in - the Bohn knee pads were already in place.

Another thing I did was replace the set of hard pads as supplied with the Roadcrafter with their new soft ones. I did this because the hard ones began to hurt my knees after a few hours and the softies took care of that. These may not offer the highest level of protection as the hard set but I still feel confident they'll do an adequate job.

Rain? Believe me Nova Scotia will provide all the moisture you'll ever need. I ran for hours through some of the nastiest stuff I've ever encountered including rides to Alaska and the 'Stich held up. I caught a little drizzle down the back of my neck and upwards from my ankles but nothing of any concern.

Bottom line is I'm totally sold on the one-piece 'Stich so if anyone's interested in my designer set of Rev'It gear let me know, I won't be needing them any more.

Thanks Andy! (Posted on 8/8/09)
Great Product!Review by Dave Aultfather
I bought my Roadcrafter suit in 1990 and, despite many wearings and washings, mostly with a garden hose to get the smashed bugs and road dirt off, it still looks like new.

It is super comfortable in a wide range of conditions and it is easy easy to don and doff.

It seemed expensive when I bought it but, when I consider its durability and how many times I have used it during the last 19 years, the cost-per-use is pennies. Viewed that way, it might be the least expensive I own.

I have lots of other gear in my closet and most of it stays there in my closet while I use the Aerostich on almost every ride.

The vents keep me cool, especially when I wear my cool vest inside, and it keeps me warm when I wear fleece. Absolutely versitile!

If I could have only one piece of gear, the Aerostich would be my choice. (Posted on 8/7/09)
best tool you can wearReview by keith
Had it for a year now and truly love it! Fits good, feels good, handy pockets, easy on/off for commute. NEVER leaked ,even 1300 mile Indy Moto GP 2008. Don't know why, it should leak, but it stays dry. Only down side is it is a little hot in summer traffic and has a drafty collar in winter. (Posted on 8/4/09)
I have been using a Roadc...Review by Charles Hilsabeck
I have been using a Roadcrafter one piece suit since the mid-1980's. I have never had occasion to "use" the full protective qualities of the suit until two weeks ago. I came off my bike, went over an embankment and landed about 40' below the highway. I sustained multiple broken bones, including a broken scapula, clavicle and seven broken ribs. These injuries were the result of impacting something hard. However, I literally did not get a scratch on me. My stich was pretty much destroyed and the shell of my helmet was broken from severe impact with the ground, but I did not receive any roadrash or broken skin of any kind. Looking at my stich, it is readily apparent that I would have lost my life had I not been wearing my Aerostich Roadcrafter. I am ordering my third Roadcrafter one-piece suit (to go along wtih my Darien for off road use) and will not ride a street bike without wearing my stich. Thank you for making the best riding suit I know of. (Posted on 5/29/09)
I have had my suit for o...Review by Stephen Atkinson
I have had my suit for over a month and love it. I thought about it a long time and looked at cheaper alternatives but they didn't fit well and were a pain to get on and off. In this case you get what you pay for.

I am commuting almost full time, 65 mile round trip. I don't know how I did it before. No more changing clothes and the Aerostich requires at least one less layer than my lined leather in cold weather.

Last week was typical MD spring weather. It was 38 degrees for my Friday morning commute and I was comfortable with jeans, sweatshirt and light fleece.

On Monday afternoon it was 93 degrees. I was comfortable with khakis and a tshirt. You can't beat that for all season.

The sizing was right on. I am 6'1 200 lbs, athletic build and am fairly hard to fit. The 46R fits perfect.

Do be patient though. When I tried it on it felt tight through the arms and shoulders.

I told my wife I liked it but was probably going to have to return it. After a day or two and especially after riding it was broken in. It was actually the armor I was feeling and it loosened up. (Posted on 5/18/09)

Have had my Roadcrafter for about 5 months now. Have
ridden in hard rains, to and from work and not getting wet.(15 miles a trip) The details that the suit has are awesome. A little tricking at first to put on and zip up, however a little practice and it is very simple to master.
In the summer months its a little warm, open the vents and keep moving. More enjoyable in the cool months. After reading about craig wheeler I got bought a Roadcrafter also. The two reasons I where my Roadcrafter, for my loving wife and 6 year old son. (Posted on 4/25/09)
Have owned my 2 piece sui...Review by Charles Babcock
Have owned my 2 piece suit for over 10 years. No failures. Blue with black trim, chosen to match my r1100rsa. Amazing piece of kit, superbly designed. As everyone notes, as long as you are moving, you can be comfortable in any temp. If/when I replace, I'll go with the one piece. I went with the 2 piece for flexibility, but find I NEVER take them apart. Thought I would use the pants with suspenders with a jacket, but never do that, and eventually bought a pair of BMW Summer II pants for the purpose. In addition, I don't like the extra bulkiness around the waist area. Will also go black/black. The blue look great on the bike, but looks like a snowmobile suit off. If you are tall in the torso like me 6'0" with a 32 inch inseam, you will need the ellipse or the suit will pull on your shoulders. I was a jeans and leather jacket guy before the suit, now that combo feels naked. A must have. Costly, for good reason. (Posted on 3/25/09)
I crashed a 1-piece Roadc...Review by Adam Wade
I crashed a 1-piece Roadcrafter in hi-viz yellow on grooved concrete at 80 mph. The suit had already been lightly crashed a few times, and had a few small holes and abrasions here and there. The suit let me get up and walk away without a scratch. And the hi-viz yellow works; in fairly heavy traffic on a 10-lane freeway, people a quarter of a mile back saw me fall off. When I finally slid to a halt, I looked back and saw the entire freeway had stopped dead. The nearest car was well over a hundred yards behind me.

After going home, I noticed that I mist have fallen on something in the road; a bolt perhaps. There was a hole on the outside of my left forearm (I fell to the left) that went through BOTH layers of ballistic, the regular Cordura, and the armor... And it stopped at the inner lining. I didn't even know that had happened until examining the suit later. Any less protection would have had me at the hospital getting whatever removed from my arm...

I sent the suit back to Andy Goldfine and the fine Rider Wearhouse folks. Andy told me that I had totalled the suit; not a single panel on the whole thing was unscathed. I had him send it back to me, and I keep it as a reminder of why we need to wear good gear. It has convinced more than one rider to upgrade their gear substantially.

I look forward to getting another Roadcrafter 1-piece -- soon! (Posted on 3/19/09)
Two words...Ridiculously ...Review by Mike Worsley
Two words...Ridiculously Comfortable!

I literally just received my Roadcrafter last night and wore it for the first time this morning to ride to work. The weather was crisp (according to Arizona standards) and it was the best ride I have made to work yet.

I have been wearing BMW gear which I thought was fairly gold standard but boy was I wrong! Additionally, the craftsmanship is beyond what I ever expected. A friend had been telling me this for some time but I never expected it to BE THIS GOOD. Wow. Kudos to the fine people at Aerostich.

I am a believer! Thanks for the great gear! You have made me a lifetime buyer! (Posted on 2/10/09)

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. After a suit is sewn and completed there is no simple or cost-effective way to then make the garment’s torso length (the distance from crotch to collar) shorter or longer. A few specialized alterations can help slightly (see 'ellipse' below), but they are imperfect 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 one does this arm-raising to horizontal, the entire torso section of a one-piece suit slides upwards about 1.5". The suit’s bulky shoulder impact armor move it that way. And when you lower your arms, the suit body area should slide back downward smoothly.

Aerostich gear is graded by chest size (38, 40, 42, 44, etc) and each is available in short (S), regular (R) and long (L) versions. If you are borderline height-wise, part-way between an ‘S’ and an ‘R’, go with the longer body length of the ‘R’. And if you are somewhere between an ‘R’ and an ‘L’, go with the longer body of the ‘L’. The extra body length in each size is about 1.3" greater. And if you ride a sport bike, or are an especially active rider and want maximum freedom-of-movement, a slightly longer body sometimes works and feels a bit better.

Leg and sleeve lengths should be adjusted as needed after your body/torso length has been determined. For a comfortable and correct fit with your raised arms out to your side horizontally (both at the same time), you should still have very slight room at the crotch.

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

A riding 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.

A riding 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 center back of your hand. The center of the TF impact armor elbow cup should also 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 will 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.
