That kinda sucks it doesn't seem to fit right. But still a smoking deal at $42

bahstad ... got to looking at my 15yo pressure jacket and it's in sad shape. So this is on it's way :angel:

Image
Got this and shorts today. Shorts are almost fine. The only downside - there is a couple of soft "armor" pads too low so you have to sit on them and that hurts your butt. Perhaps that's to make you stand more :huh: Anyway if it will be a real problem, it's easy to remove. I have plenty of really sharp knives :lol2:
With body armor I'm not really happy though. Perhaps it's just my body build but sleeves are a little too long and at the same time velcro closures are too short and if I manage to put the elbow guard in acceptable position and close the velcro, my hands start to ache in a minute. Idk if I can ride with that. If I close it like in the pic then my elbows are not covered and since arm is thinner closer to my hand, it will get only worse if worn like that.
Will try anyways. Shoulder pads are too much to the front and there's no adjustment on the back side. Perhaps it would work as the impact usually should come from the front, but I don't like the feeling.
So materials seem to be fine, but the design is bad in my opinion.
Spot on Janis. :thumbup:
I even had my son try it on, he had the same fit issues. On the shorts, I'll cut out the two bottom pieces.

Well, glad I didn't get the shirt. ;) The pants seem ok to me but I haven't sat on the bike while wearing them yet.

I'd like to get a Darien jacket some day. For those times I don't want to wear the whole one piece space suit.

I got a perfed leather jacket and some kevlar lined pants for when I don't wear the roadcrafter (summer). I just ordered another roadcrafter, the R3. I'm hoping it'll be comfortable on hotter days than my 12 year old one.

I've got Motoport Kevlar Mesh for the hot days. I'm fairly certain that stuff will damage the asphalt if I crash.

My one piece Road(Warrior)Crafter is 15-16 years old. I still feel it is one of the better pieces of gear I have ever bought. I sent it back for repairs 5-6 years ago. Wasnt cheap but Im still wearing it.

Yep, this'll be my 3rd roadcrafter. First one was a 2 piece that fit me back when I was bicycle racing but quickly got too small when I stopped. The current one was too long (44R) from the get go but I was too cheap to get it custom fit. The new one is a 44S (well, once they make it) and I'll spend the extra dough to get it fitting well. I don't anticipate needing to buy another one in my lifetime. ;)

amazing how that happens. Apparently they shrink when not in use. I've noticed that in other gear I own. :shrug:
