I got fitted for a two piece Roadcrafter back in 2008 (has it been THAT long?) when we attended the Aerostich Very Boring Rally II.

I LOVE my Roadcrafter. Had I known back when I started riding that these suits existed, I would have bought one back then, instead of wasting almost $1,000 on the various Joe Rocket, FieldSheer, and Firstgear jackets and pants. Not to mention the leather gear I have.

What really impressed me was not only are they (well, most of the suits) made here in the US, I got it sized just for me. And I could send it back for repairs or cleaning. Which I've done.

I like how it fits over my work clothes. My co-workers are still amazed when i get to work, peel off the suit, and there I am, in a skirt. Hahaha!

it keeps me dry during the downpours and occasional spring snowstorm and the vents, plus an evap vest, keep me cool in the warm temps. My Gerbings fit just fine underneath as well. And all the pockets! Who needs a purse?

Right now I have the zip on suspenders attached to the pants. That way, i can leave the pants on without the jacket.

Mine is the mens style. I have thought about buying one of the womens, but I really can't justify it. I'm really happy with mine, but if it ever needed to be replaced, I'd get fitted for a new womens style.

I have worn a "Stich"--the same Stich--for 15+ years. I bought it slightly used -- and there were no women's models then. The article mentioned being hot in the summer - true - but wearing close to nothing but LD Comfort, a cool vest and neck wrap, you will arrive with your skin intact no matter what the road (or tarmac) temperature is.

Riding with gals with five layers on is no more bulky than this outfit. You can also unzip wearing a party outfit. I love it but would trade it in a minute for brand new women's sizing. Better start saving up!

Thank you for this well written and informative article. I have been curious about the women's one piece. I wear the Darien pants and had bought a jacket that I ended up selling because I felt like a football player in it! I hope to make it to one of the fitment events they have this year and would definitely consider buying one.

I'm still considering their two-piece suits. I'd hate to have a one-piece on, and try to use a regular bathroom. I'd be sure to drop an arm or the top half in the john!

I currently have a Firstgear jacket and a different brand of riding pants. Love wearing the LDComfort gear under them as it keeps my body comfy in cool or hot temps. I live in AZ and it's riding season now, but when summer hits, I can be comfortable enough with this combination.
