    Matteo,

    looking to get the right fit for the Fit Tex:

    I am 33" inside leg and 34" waist.

    Am I right in saying they will breath as well or better than the NL5? Is the Tenax Tactel more abrasion resistant than the Clarino Microfibre?

    Thanks.

    Hi keiji

    we don't offer as optional.
    Don't forget you can hold jacket to pants through groin straps.


    Thanks again for your interest

    Hi Moggi.
    Are you considering Fit or Summerfit? Summerfit has mesh zones, Fit doesn't.

    Oops! Didn't notice that; the Summerfit I suppose (with knee and hip pads) unless you think the NL5 will offer the same level of breathability with better protection?

    Thanks,

    Just to check, since I don't see anything that looks obvious-does the Ergo 365 Pro jacket have these straps? I am still learning all the features as there are quite a few-if you have pictures of what I should be looking for, that would be a big help.

    Hi Matteo,

    I was wondering if any of the Spidi gear comes in 'talls' (specifically jackets). I'm tall and skinny (2m tall, 106cm chest, 86 cm waist and currently about 86kg) with long arms. Standard sizes fit ... poorly, in general, and most US manufacturers jackets are insanely baggy on me.

    Problem is many of the well fitting jackets are brutally short in the arm. Was wondering if Spidi has any options?

    Hi keiji

    my mistake! I was thinking about Marathon jacket.
    With Ergo, of course you can zip to any Spidi textile pants.


    Thanks again for your interest

    Hi expatbrit

    yes Spidi produces jackets for tall people (slim types) or fat people (robust types).
    I suggest you Ergo 05 Slim, which is same as Ergo 05, but tighter.
    Here you go with a specific size chart for slim people:

    I suggest a XXL for you.

    Just for information, here's version for fat people (robust):

    Thanks for the reply; just checking a few things.

    The jacket liner is waterproof, the shell is 'water-resistant'? (Teflon coated cordura?)

    And the Ergo 05 is the only one that is in slim sizes? (Not that I'm complaining; I like Slim more than Tall anyway. :) )

    The Summerfit I suppose (with knee and hip pads) unless you think the NL5 will offer a similar level of breathability with better protection?

    Thanks, Matteo.

    Hi expatbrit

    external is laminated Cordura with a medium level of water repellence (it's not a 3-layers fabric as in Ergo 365 Pro).
    It's the only one in slim fit.

    As per pants, I would suggest Hurricane in LONG fit; you can zip them together (XXL will be good). They're 10 centimeters (39in) longer than normals.

    Hi moggi.

    Yes with that safety equipment, they're similar, but within the 2, I suggest NL5: they're a bit more technical, for example they feature lower leg adjustment.

    Thanks again for your interest

    Ordering an NL5 tonight.

    I am 33" inside leg and 34" waist.

    Which size do you recommend?

    Thanks again.

    I was recently in Paris and my wife tried on a Spidi Dueruote and loved it. On returning to the states I've tried to find anyone with one in stock.

    Is this an old model? Does it have a different name in the US? Any info on the jacket and on a well stocked distributor in the US would be appreciated. Also, if spidi had other women's jackets with the same 2 layer system I'd be interested in those as well!

    Hi Andy.
    Dueruote is the only jacket in Spidi collection made with that special construction (removable inner jacket with attached protectors).
    It has never been sold in USA.
    You can buy only online from this link:
    http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/textile-motorcycle-jackets/dueruote.html

    Delivery takes from 1 to 3 working days.


    Thanks again for your interest

    So since you guys won't supply the matching zipper piece, do you know where I can get it/what it is called? I tried to purchase some in the states, but the zipper coils are on the opposite side of the zipper tape. I am not really sure if I am just looking for the wrong thing or what.

    AFter toying with the idea of getting the Track leather jacket I just don't think the airflow will be much more if any than the Ergo jacket.

    So I am switching tack and considering a well armored mesh jacket.

    So, Matteo, a question or two:

    The Net7; is that your best air flowing (outside of the Multitech) jacket?

    Will the new biomechainc armour fit it or just the Multitech?

    Will the Warrior Evo back protector fit?

    It doesn't look like it but would the Net7 attach to the NL5 with a zip or just the small fastener?

    By the way, great result for Melandri :clap

    let me say that i love the marathon jacket. it does what it is supposed to very well. it also fits nicely. i wear an xxl. sized 56 euro. the pants however in an xxl are not going to fit. they don't have the room that the jacket has. would the vtm robust pants have a noticeably more generous amount of room for a thicker cut person? http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/spidi-vtm-h2out-robust-size-pants

    i have also thought of going to the overpant option because i commute every day. i like the look of the gradus wp over pant but it is not imported to the usa. the superstorm is an option but the liner is not removable. how is the fit of the spidi overpants?

    I'm not Matteo (obviously), but the zipper in that jacket is a 'women's' zipper, whereas what you're holding up is a 'men's' zipper. Ever noticed how buttons and zipper pulls on women's clothing are on the opposite side vs. men's? At least that's the convention in the USA.
