Here's the summer stuff (ignore the apparent bulge around my waist, that's just me leaning forward, I'm much fitter than that suggests )


Here's the Expedition Pro (or Star Wars Stormtrooper) outfit. Lights up, huh!

Thanks Matteo. Is there a strategy to keep the sleeve from sliding up the arm in a crash? I agree that a knit cuff has some advantages, one of the big reasons I can see for it not being used much today is the sleeve pulling up in a crash.

winter gloves

hey matteo,

just a word on my marathon jacket first. i love it. awesome. the liners have been little used due to our mild climate. when i have used them i have been warm to the point of thinking of pulling over to remove the thermal part. i usually wear the h2out and thermal liner as a separate jacket on the way to work and then just the marathon shell on the way home. sometimes i just wear a fleece jacket. btw i have worn the jacket m-f 400+ miles per week for 7 months. i say if you are considering a commuter jacket get the spidi.

the vtm robust pants are equally awesome. my biggest problem is i have lost over 30 pounds since the purchases and now things are pretty loose. oh well. 20 more pounds and i will look for new stuff.

so the real point of the post is to ask about winter gloves.

i ride rain or shine in the san francisco bay area. 80 miles round trip to work and back. the temperature dips down to the low 30's F. with rain or not. some winters have up to 90 inches of rain and some have as little as 50. most of the time the hi temperature will be 50 deg. F. and the low will be in the low 40's.

i am thinking either the nk3 or the motorrad. which will be warmer? which is thicker to wear?

In Spidi Touring jackets, elbow are always protected through:
>Velcro straps on forearm;
>3D shape of Biomechanic or Forcetech protectors.

Thanks for all compliments over Marathon and Vtm pants; that's a very successful kit all around the world.
About gloves, NK3 is a bit longer and has elastic string on the cuff. Motorrad is extremely comfortable, lighter and softer, using really high quality materials both on palm and back.
Both use H2Out waterproof membrane and Primaloft lining.

I recommend NK3 for long travels, Motorrad for short ones.

Ergo 365 Pro Expedition

I ordered an Ergo 365 Pro Expedition jacket online today and am very excited!

When my girlfriend a I are riding my F800GS we will be both in Spidi.

Too bad the high mountain passes are snowed in for the year.

I ordered "nero" which I expect to be "black!" Her Venture Ladies jacket is black. We both have Arai XD3 helmets so we should be pretty close to matching on the bike.

Venture Lady and Ergo Pro nero is a fantastic match, here we go with an example:

Unfortunately, motorama was not able to get me the medium Ergo 365 Pro Expedition I had ordered, so I had to cancel the order. They said they could get the Ergo 365 Pro instead. The difference between the Ergo 365 Pro and Ergo 365 Pro Expedition; Pro does not include a chest protector, water bladder, and has a lower level back protector? Are the shoulder and elbow armor exactly the same?

Thanks,
Eric

Hi Eric,
here we go with differences between Ergo 365 Pro and Ergo 365 Pro Expedition:

>Back Warrior Inside Level 2 in Ergo 365 Pro Expedition (level 1 in Ergo 365 Pro)
>Warrior Chest protector in Ergo 365 Pro Expedition (optional in Ergo 365 Pro)
>Hydroback Touring drinking system in Ergo 365 Pro Expedition (optional in Ergo 365 Pro)
>Expedition label in front and back area in Ergo 365 Pro Expedition.
>WB Bag which can contain the jacket.

For additional info check this post: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=140

Regarding dealers on line selling Ergo collection, please be aware of dealers without precise information about delivery date and stock availability; Ergo is quite rare to find available because production - which is in Italy and Romania - is low-capacity and demand has been very high recently.


Thank for your interest

I'm thinking of going with the Tour S7 jacket. This looks to be a very high quality jacket similar to the Ergo 365. I will order it with the warrior back and chest protectors. Later, I will get a summer specific jacket.

Do any pants with venting work well with the Tour S7 jacket?

Thanks,
Eric
