cycleport/motoport

I bought a full motoport/cycleport kevlar suit with liners a few months ago. I absolutely love it. I can get in and out of it quickly, I think the protection is fantastic (though thankfully untested), the mesh is very cool (so far I've ridden up to 100 degrees and down to the mid 40s), every aspect of the suit works. Simply the best motorcycle gear I've ever come across. I have not tested it in the rain yet. Just wanted to pass along my satisfaction. Spoke with the man himself to ensure proper fit. I was a little disappointed initially until I got on the bike and then you realize this guy knows about how to fit a suit for riding a bike. I have the slightest bit of bunching at the legs and realized that it is because I did my last measurement on a chair instead of the bike which places my heels well behind my knees.
I'm not crazy about the all grey color and don't recommend it unless you want to look like a cableguy that moonlights as a swat team member but that is pretty much my own fault (and maybe a bit the bad website ).
Makes me want to ride more. :bigok:

Love the Motoport. I suggest washing the suit a few times, and the suit becomes much more flexible.

Armor in or out? Thanks. This stuff is great. I've posted photos on a different forum if anyone is interested:

Odd, it's showing someone else posted but I don't see anything...

You were certainly right about the washing loosing it up. Took a 2600 mile trip thru CO last month and the suit was great. After reading on the website I also found unzipping the right leg entirely and stepping into the left leg first really sped up how quickly I can get in and out of the suit.
