I guess I missed the US made piece in the OP I too try to buy everything I possibly can US made.. check labels on ever piece of clothing I buy to see if it US made and if it isnt then I try hard to find a US made alternative before I cave in. I drive a US made truck and even bought the only American made SxS 20 gauge on the market. But sometimes there is just not a good alternative. If you are going to put in a ton of miles on asphalt, absolutely go with Aerostich.. it is time proven and crash proof. I personally tested this in my Darien gear just a couple of years ago... but it quickly runs out of functionality when you need it to breath past a minimal level, or if you want the option of wearing it over enduro gear. Motoport is great too from all accounts, but I wont buy a piece of gear you need to put a waterproof liner in.. just out of date. I still wear my Aerostich if I want high vis for a 100% on road ride.. but if I am going to ride in the dirt.. then the KLIM gear just outperforms the Darien in every aspect. IMHO YMMV
We are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of "security." And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone.
