This optional version of the R-3 is edgy like old-school coveralls…nothing ‘Power Ranger’ about it. More industrial coverall. Especially when it’s got some miles and wear. Still provides good protection, but with less weight. It’s fully seam-taped made-in-USA 500 Denier Cordura® GORE-TEX® fabric and is easy to slip on quickly over your street clothes. You’ll find all the pockets, vents, armor and details of the R-3, but without the two-color second-fabric-layer areas around the knee/elbow/shoulder areas. There’s still plenty of crash and abrasion protection for commuting, touring and knock-around riding, without the Futureama look. As with all Roadcrafters, you’ll be ready to ride in just seconds - step-in, close the waterproof zippers and ride. Six oversize strategically placed, removable TF3 impact armor pads are integrated into the shoulder, elbow and knee areas to maximize protection. Additional features include: high-visibility Scotchlite™ reflective areas; a bunch of strategically placed, external and internal pockets; provisions for optional arm and thigh map window pockets, optional integrated rain boot covers, hip pads, a back pad and a chest protector; underarm and back vents; side-entry zippers for access to your street pants; a comfortable ultra suede collar; and a variety of adjustable tabs and zippers that allow you to fine-tune the fit. Dozens of custom sewn size alterations are also available for personalized fit and performance, too. Colors: black, grey, red, hi-viz lime yellow, tan or cobalt blue. Machine washable. Sizes: Men’s 34 regulars and 36–52 in short, regular or long. Women’s 6-20. USA.
If you happen to need a different size, just return the suit and we'll ship out a replacement free of charge (domestic ground shipments only).
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.
