Your ERGO 365 Pro Expedition is equipped with a EN 1621-2 level 2 back protector; which is in fact the higher standard certification for back protectors.

What may have confuse you is the picture of the Defender Armor, which has a different kind of level 2 protector.
The back protector equipped in your Ergo is this: Back Warrior EVO Inside .


When buying motorcycle apparels, you should always pay attention of at the certification labels on the products.
All of our products always shows the certification mark, explaining exactly what kind of protector is that and what certification level it has.

That is not the back protector that came with my jacket. Mine looks like the one in the multitech, which is why I want to know how to get the level 2 that is supposed to be there. Both my chest and back protector clearly state "ce level 1"
Thanks
Matt

Hi Wizz,
now that's strange. Are you sure you purchased an Ergo 365 Pro Expedition?
Or you purchased an Ergo 365 Pro and than added to it the lev.1? The Expedition model must come with the Level.2
Does your jacket features all the add-on of the Expedition, like the Hydroback drinking system?

Yes, expedition. Came with hydropak, level 1 chest armor, gear bag etc., just no level 2 which is one of the reasons I got the expedition. How doI get the level 2 that should have come with it?

My XL fits okay, but there is a lot of material bunched up in the back behind the shoulder and in the back around my waist. I have all of the adjustments cinched up and buttoned up almost to their limit.

I would like to know if the Large would be a better fit. I have seen the chart and XL is for me according to the measurements, but the real world fit is different.

Also, How much room will Warrior Evo back protector and Warrior chest pad take up? If these items where added XL may be my only choice.

I would say that with all liners in the shoulder and chest are good fit. All liners out is really too baggy.

How much smaller is the L in real world fit (not just the chest measurement and sleeve length).

Overall, I really like the jacket and hope I can find the best fit.

Do you have a coupon code for spidi gear for ADV members?

Thank you, for your help.

I am having trouble adjusting to the left hand pull zippers.
The Large Jacket fits perfectly!

Now I am looking at the pants. What size do you recommend based on the measurements/info above. Also, I like for my cuff to stay low on my boot while riding.

I am looking at the:
Ergo, Hurricane, and Superstorm pants. The Ergo are very pricey!

The hurricane seems a reasonable alternative and the superstorm are very convenient and reasonably priced. Do either of these breath well at all? Will they fit over adventure boots.

I would like to hear your opinion on these trousers and am open to suggestions and other products. I would like to match the pant to my jacket, but I need some convincing for the price of the Ergo pants.

My jacket is black BTW.

Thank You

Hi Smonke,
So, in your situation I would go with the pants in size L.
If you want to use the pants over the offroad boots, which are usually very big on the shin I would definitely go with the ERGO Pro Pants, because they're a little moore roomy at the calf.

Or maybe, you can look at both the Hard Track Pants or the Marathon pants.
They are two layer pants, while the ERGO Pro Pants also feature the thermo lining inside.
Of course they are fully waterproof, but you can always remove the H2Out membrane, if it's very hot during your ride





Thanks,

Defender Armor

Hello Matteo

I was hoping to purchase a Defender Armor to fit my chest size 120cm, although the website says they are not available? Is this correct? I made an enquiry via the website, received a response requesting additional information, I replied, although have received no further contact? Can you assist. Thanks

Hi Noel,
I forwarded your request to our Customer Service.
Youžll be given a reply very soon. I believe that the Defender Armor is currently out of stock for the huge success worldwide. Will be coming back soon.

Thanks,

High-visibility options for high-end suits

You have an awesome range, SPIDI, but the lack of hi-viz options for more models is disappointing (and for me, personally, hi-viz is a requirement for buying). It would be great if the Hard Track or Ergo 365 would offer the color options available for Voyager 3 and AirNet jackets.

BTW, what is the reasoning behind this? Why a lower-end jacket has this option, and a higher-end one has not?

Going to guess the same reason high end cars almost all come in only grey or black. When making something that costs a lot of money to produce you do not want to stock up on something that will get a lukewarm buy rate because of color. While Hi-Viz is great, i use my olympia hi viz 1 piece all the time, it is not a popular color scheme with most people.

A lot of the high end manufacturers go with hiviz: Klim, Clover, Richa, Macna to mention just some of them.

I had no idea that Porsche or Ferrari only come in black or grey.

Can you see this guy wearing High-Viz? (Actually the image is so small you can barely make him out :) )



So 'not Italian'
