First, let me be absolutely clear- I've known Wayne for almost 20 years when he hired me to photograph his first print catalog. I rode with a GP-2 suit on the street years ago, and when I began dual-sport riding, I knew I wanted one of his suits for that. I contacted him, we did some business, and I took delivery of my suit about a month ago. I like Wayne, his company, and his products but need to be clear I'm not a shill, not getting paid, etc, etc. Ok? After a lot of thought, I settled on the Marathon Jacket and a pair of modified police pants (I think). The goal was to create the ultimate ADV suit that would be comfortable on long mixed-terrain and mixed climate trips. And that's what I got. I made a lot of changes- Wayne was very helpful and very patient. He was happy to apply some of my ideas, and steered me away from others. Some of the big changes I were special pockets for a 100oz Camelbak bladder and another for my radio. I skipped the chest pockets- I wanted more airflow (I tend to, like my KTM, overheat) and simplified the remaining pockets. I opted for the quad armor because I fall down a lot. The first ride of any distance was the Circumnavigation of the Grand Canyon (ride report) and was 98% pleased. Yes, the quad armor is a bit bulky, and was a tad awkward at first. But as the ride progressed, the armor started to conform to my muscular and fit body ( ) and became lots more comfortable. At one point on the ride, I had to do a fast change into the zip-in liner while rain and hail began to pelt down on us. It was much easier than I thought,and the liner was far more comfortable than I anticipated. We had temps from rain to 100 degrees, and I could have kept the liner in the entire time. Not to say, however, that the mesh was not cool and breezy- it absolutely was. Even in slow technical sections it was quite comfortable. If I were on a dirt-only ride, I might use something different, but for anything with street time, this is my first choice. Very happy with my choice! Here's some pics: The only thing I'd change on this suit is the Camelbak pocket. I'd make the zipper a little wider and put some sort of gusset in it so when it's full it pulls a little less on my shoulders. Not a big deal, and the consequence of my own choices. Once the bladder was a little less than full, the shoulders fit just fine. If I were riding in less remote areas, I'd simply put less water in the bladder. The radio pocket worked perfectly, with it's stitched holes for the antenna and the PTT/helmet cords. Hardly knew my radio was even there. Love this suit.
