I sympathize...sigh. I too seem to be missing that essential enzyme that avoids embarassment in elevators. You know you have it bad when you can smell it on the freeway behind the windshield of your FLHS.

$600? That should pay for surgery on yer denim-covered legs lol!

Just messin' with ya!

Seriously tho, the 'Stich is indeed expensive, but you might possibly change your mind if you lived with the convenience for a while [well, the one-piece anyway -- not sure I see the Aerostich's advantage in the two-piece scenario].

My 'stich is the Darien. I have found it to be "worth it " for the everyday riding I do. Classic styling without dated frills. I have never gotten wet in spite of many encounters with the weather. I hope I never have to test the crashworthyness of it, but it feels very secure. And the Hi-Viz yellow color (that is Minnesotan for 'never clean looking ever again has gotten me noticed a lot more often. As I have stated here before, if I had a nickel for every kid that said "hey mommy! A fireman!".



Love my 'stich, will never be without one. Sometimes you DO get what you paid for.



paul from Minnesota, lovin his Vmax!

the mint suppositories would go over big here in the bay area. brilliant. simply brilliant.



bmw K-LT. i'm old, too, and junior is headed off to college momentarily. so stock prices willing, the spousal unit and i will be hitting the open road for parts unknown. the LT is the superior escape vehicle for this purpose.

I have hi-viz yellow two piece. Everyone said

that I looked like a firefighter or an astronaut...

The pants are quite baggy.



I did read, that it was cooler than leather.

So in my simple mind I thought it is suitable

for Miami heat in summer and was I wrong...



I still wear the jacket in winter time,

but in summer and fall when is hot as hell here and rains all the time -- I just stick to my

icon jeans, dragging shirt or joerocket if

the sun is not up. So do not think it is ventilated

enough for hot and humid florida weather..

I love it... An Aerostich protective riding suit coupled with a useless skid-lid vanity helmet. It's like a screen door on a submarine.

Default I have a marsee jacket..

Black reflective. It's held up well (no crashes, no incidents, 4 years of wear now), but its starting to show its age, esp on the shoulder and front.



It's no where NEAR waterproof. It gets hot (black is a bad color). Venting is good, but pockets are nearly nonexistant (the pockets double as vent openings).



Good jacket, but next time, I'm gettin a 'stich

R=The Cyleport ( was Motoport) Ultra II series jacket and pants have equal or better protection in an accident and are much cooler for us in the south.

Another nice thing about a 'Stich is that they have great longevity and resale value. I wore my first one for 12 years and then sold it in about thirty seconds after posting it for sale on an Internet site. Also, as for the hot weather thing, I used to live in Arizona, and when it was hot we just stopped at a convenience store or gas station, added some ice cubes to the two front pockets, and then basked an swamp-cooled glory for the next few hours. No big deal.
