I tried the Joe Rocket one, but it is a bitch to get in an out of since the zipper doesn't run the length of the legs. Try the tourmaster centurion

Aerostich/RiderWearHouse Motorcycle Jackets, Suits, Clothing, & Gear :: Aerostich/RiderWearHouse Motorcycle Jackets, Suits, Clothing, & Gear

Heard real good things about this company and their products. Ducman who isn't local to this board anymore wore this to commute and during winter months and raved about the suit.

Salva I well sell you my Aerostich. I have over 1200 into it but will let it go for half that. I like it but just do not wear it anymore. I need dual sport gear now.

What is your price range? 600 bucks for a 1 piece suit is not bad. Maybe we can work out a deal if you like it and it fits. I is flexable.

Salva,

Some options in the mid range:

I'm riding around in Icon's new Patrol gear - not one piece but it's holding up to all the elements. Fit is real comfortable and warm - think more snowboarding jacket as opposed to restrictive (while still fully armored).





Yes I can direct traffic if I want to...

Reactions have been positive so far "Dude I saw you from a mile away" Which is exactly what you want commuting in dawn and after dark

Got this to complete the outfit:



It's in long term testing. I'll let you know how it goes.

Also really like the Joe Rocket DryTech Nano





It held up really well in massive cold downpours last year

Both are not one piece but give you a ton more flexibility with removable liners, bibs etc

Above all get waterproof boots, once the feet get wet you are f'ed...

yeah I'm open to two pieces also, probably more comfortable also. Got me a pair of drystars boots and gloves. I heard that the new Icon stuff is way better, quality wise, than what they used to be. Do you find this true?

Yes - no comparison

They told me the Patrol line was a big departure for them - stuff is so warm and easy to wear I may take it snowboarding...

I heard my name called...

You'll be somewhat disappointed in my not-so-fancy winter gear, but parts have served me well for years now:

Currently:
FirstGear Mesh pants with windproof/waterproof liner
Danner Stiker II GTX insulated boots
FirstGear Jaunt Jacket (just added a couple months ago)
FirstGear Warm & Safe heated jacket liner (got for birthday last week)
FirstGear Carbon heated gloves (got for Christmas a couple weeks ago)
FirstGear Dual wireless heatroller (awesome)
Symtec Grip heaters on the bike

Reserve:
Cortech mesh jacket with windproof/waterproof liner and insulated liner
Tourmaster Winter Elite gloves (best non-heated gloves out there)
Joe Rocket cheap leather gloves w/ military wool liners (for down to about 50 degrees)

Retired:
Aerostich Roadcrafter jacket (I think FirstGear stuff is better)
Joe Rocket Phoenix mesh jacket with--you guessed it--windproof/waterproof liner


Top priority is to block the wind. You can do that either in an expensive way or a cheap way. I can tell you that now that I have heated gear in combination with heated grips, I'll never again do without. Worth every penny.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Nice find! Thinking about picking up the jacket and pants for myself. Like you said would also make a great snowboarding jacket. But I'm not going to put water in it for the slopes..maybe some jack and coke.
