Looking to get some ideas about a one-piece suit for all weather riding. Can y'all share your experiences with whatever you got?

Thanks,
Yuri

It's not a one-piece, but I've been extremely happy with the Tourmaster Transition and pants in all weather conditions ranging from 110 degrees to about 25 degrees (That was in the same day!) I rode through a horrible downpour here in Dallas last week the day all of the tornados hit and I stayed dry throughout. Good price too. I've noticed with my riding buddies that use a one piece that they can become pretty cumbersome when it's time to stop to eat or a rest room break.

I've had three Aerostich Roadcrafters over the last 20 years. I've tried others but did not find anything that compares. The Roadcrafter is made in the USA and alterations and or repairs are handled very efficiently. Downside is that they are factory direct only. Hope this helps.

I have one of the early versions of the Teiz Lombard, which I bought used. It is terrific, and the newer versions appear to have incorporated a lot of improvements.

The company's web site is here: http://store.teizms.com/

.... and there's a looong thread about them at advrider.com in the "Vendors" section.

I consider mine ideal for three-season wear in cold-to-mild temperatures, then switch to mesh gear for the hot summers we have in this part of the country.

Goose512 alluded to a one-piece being cumbersome to get in and out of. That was true for me at first but you get faster with practice.

In a word, for me, they are cumbersome. I have tried two different brands and fit, even with Aerostich, is an issue because the whole darn thing has to fit. Being of one piece, tightness or unnecessary looseness in one area tends to affect the fit of the entire suit. I have several jackets and pants and mix and match based on weather and distance. When wearing a two piece outfit, I can leave the pants on and find a place in the luggage to squeeze in my jacket but never found an effective way to pack the one piece inside the luggage when I was off the bike.

I have a one-piece suit, but don't wear it much anymore. When it's hot and I stop, I get out of the sleeves to get some air and it's a pain to keep the arms from dragging on the ground. I prefer a separate jacket and pants. Much more flexible.
