    Rain liners....you do not have to zip them in.....or, order them larger and slip them over the gear.

    I believe that Aerostich still offers a discount for placing in-store orders.
    So you could probably ride to the store in Duluth, get custom measured to guarantee the best fit, and save enough money to pay for the gas to get there. The more you spend the more you save. All the gear that I have purchased from them is first class. I'm very happy with my RC suit because in the store I was able to try on many sizes and I was properly measured, therefor it fits me well.

    well after tossing back and forth between motoport and Aerostitch for a few weeks, I went with the Aerostitch Dariens, they fit the need on all fronts, American made, waterproof without needing a liner, full length leg zips , fit great and they come in a color other than black. So far the only thing I notice is the knee armor gets really stiff when it's cold out { cold like riding to work when it's a balmy 10 degrees out} Warm they are very conforming and soft.

    Just wanted to thank all who gave informed advice. I got them in gray.

    thanks guys, no need to thank me, I just did what I felt was right for me, give the support to those that still wear the tree suit, I'm just an old retired grunt that likes to ride around this great nation, meeting the people that make this a great country.
