Replace pressure suit with jacket? (off-road 90+ use)

Hi guys,

I'm mostly just sick of my pressure suit due to the bitch of having to take it on and off and it's just not that comfortable. I ride dirt enduro style 90% of the time and mostly in the desert with high heat.

I've seen some of the things like the Klim induction. I also came across this Icon "mesh jersey" and was able to try it on, if the elbows had a snap it almost would have been perfect.

Any other suggestions? I don't need goretex or anything I would actually almost prefer that I use a seperate layer over the jacket for when its cool in the morning etc etc..

Pressure suits are "one size fits a bunch" so if you don't fit the mold, I wouldn't use one. Based upon your self described use, I wouldn't consider a jacket. Have you tried individual components that give you more versatility for conditions and rides?

Something like the armored vest with separate limb coverage has worked for me on some rides. It also gives you the option of carrying a light jacket and working that in when needed.

Some coverage is good in high heat so jersey's over armor is usually my first choice.

Big guy stuff:

Recommend this,can get a full setup,or just components.

I use their back pad and shorts,knee protectors for the majority of my street riding.It is flexible,all day comfortable and does flow air reasonably well here in the hot SW US.

I like the idea of gear saying with your body,rather than potentially moving around,like a looser jacket/pants would do.
