I to am considering an Aerostich. I like the Roadcrafter one piece but would not consider it a all year suit in the humidity we get here back east. I believe it will be a Darien and probably the 500 denier Cordura not the 160 lightweight. My considerations concirn riding to the Phoenix area from here in Pa and being comfortable all the way. The Roadcrafter has a nylon lining and should be warmer in the high heat. I am assuming that you could forego the clothes underneath and bring a couple of pair of long silk long underwear along and do a sink wash out and be in business without much concirn for any other riding clothes in the heat. I havce ridden with one but the vent opening in the back and under arms with the sleeve gussets sould allow enoung air to circulate under the jacket to keep you cool. It would make intermittant rainstorms much less of a hassle.

I have been through two one piece and one two piece Roadcrafters in the last 20 years. Today I prefer the simplicity of the one piece. I wear year round, often with long underwear of varying types depending on the temperature. Could'nt imagine riding in anything else.
