I could not agree more. I wear my Aerostich suit year round here for all but the rare really hard ride (then I use my 1 piece race suit). Vents open in the summer, as long as I'm moving (I luckily don't have to ride in stop and go traffic to get anywhere) its good up to the high 90s. Vents closed and with under jacket and pants I'm good down to about 30. Below 30/35 I have a snowmobile suit
. It's never too cold to ride here.
I've had my Aerostich suit for almost 20 years now. A few zipper repairs and it's still going strong. One of my favorite companies. For 20 years I've been amazed they are not more popular (I'm guessing its a got to be stylish/fashion thing
). And my one piece Aerostich goes on over work cloths in about 40 seconds. Oh, and get all the optional "hard armor" and it is reasonably protective for street riding up to about 100 MPH.
Yea, I'm an Aerostich "fan boy".
Good gauntlet gloves help a lot. I've never had heated gloves, but I want some.
Da fuq? Even in the hottest summer days at the track, I've never felt the engine heat when wearing anything but shorts.
On hot summer days riding long distance (over 3 hours) wearing either Daniese 1 piece leathers or my Aerostich, the heat dumping on my left ankle becomes unbearable. This is while traveling 70+ MPH. I finally learned to keep left foot back and out as far as possible and it's not so bad. This year riding to Deals Gap I got an actual minor burn on my lower left leg (right above my left SIDI boot) while wearing my Aerostich 1 piece.
I have a 2007, maybe the heat ducting is different on later models? IDK.
Me, Aerostich, on "the Dragon":
