Cool. Good way to figure out what size stitch you need for the upcoming winter.

I've never directly examined one of their suits, but from their website they seem to put a lot of thought into the product, have good customer service, and they are domestically made.

I am curious to see to what extent the knee, elbow, back, and hip pads stay in place when the suit is worn and jostled.

I know from experience that the hip, elbow and shoulder pads stay in place when the ground jostles you (and they disperse the force).

On the other hand, mine leaked like crazy when new, has virtually no lining and a couple of zippers failed fast. Buy it large enough to wear layers and plan to wear rain gear or have it waterproofed.

Here's hoping there's one in Vancouver, BC soon. I've been using a Roadcrafter for a few years now and would love to try the new version on and get fitted properly. I've only purchased second hand ones.

It's a brilliant piece of kit. I use mine every day and the worst thing I've had is a wet crotch.
