Comfort Flow Gear

New member here, please be patient with me if I am asking questions that have already been answered.

I currently wear an old Marsee jacket and BMW Summer 2 pants and have decided I am ready to add to my wardrobe. I need waterproof and want something that I can make work in a lot of varying conditions. I am leaning towards the Comfortshell line but found a thread in here somewhere with a lot of people talking up the Streetguard.

Some dealer folks swear that they wear the Comfortshell in hot and cold and do just fine with good quality layers and or heated liners but all the literature I can find talks about this stuff as being designed for warm weather.

I would love to hear some opinions if anybody cares to share.

Thanks

Re: Comfort Flow Gear

My SO and I both have the ComfortShell and love it. IMHO, it is the perfect combination of breathability and waterproof for our PNW climate. I've ridden for hours in total downpours with no leakage whatsoever. When the temps get over 90, the pants do start to get pretty warm as there aren't any ventilation zippers. With the excellent ventilation on the jacket, it still stays pretty comfortable, although if I lived in a southern climate I would probably get a mesh riding jacket for extended periods of over 90. I layer a Gerbings liner under it when the temp drops below 50 degrees and have stayed comfortable down to 19 degrees (the coldest I've tried it in). I love the fact I don't have to mess around zipping in a waterproof liner when the skies open up. Like most stuff BMW, it is not inexpensive, but overall I would definitely make the same purchase again. I also have a pair of Gerbings G3 gloves for colder temps.

Life happens...you control your reaction.

Re: Comfort Flow Gear

For starters, I am the same guy that asked the original question about the ComfortShell yesterday (Goose). Due to some technical difficulties of my own making, I had to rejoin as "freetime", its a long story.

Thanks! I have done some more digging around and find nothing but positive comments.

It looks like Aerostitch might be an interesting option as well but I get the impression it is mail order only (?) and there is no way I am going to spend that kind of coin with out being able to see it first. On the other hand, again, if you or anyone else has an opinion I would love to hear it.
