    Hi Max,

    the outer fabric of Ergo 365 Pro Expedition is a 3-layers fabric which is very durable and resistant, you don't need to add anything to make it keep waterproofness.
    The waterproofness is given indeed by the H2Out membrane which is laminated between the inner light comfort fabric and the outer strong polyammide.

    Let me know if you need further assistance.


    Thanks for your attention.

    Hi Schine, how are you doing?
    I'm sorry for such a late reply, but I was really busy with the MotoGP beginning in Doha and the World SBK race going in Spain.

    Anyway, here's what you asked !

    Gargoyle an overpant made in PVC coated Nylon, and long zippers on the leg for a very fast dressing. It has a 100gr/mq thermo wadding and CE certified Forcetech protectors on knees and hips.

    Gradus II was a pretty big leap forward in term of fitting, with enhanced vestibility and wider reflex areas, for a safer night riding.
    Is made in PVC with a 100gr/mq hallow fiber thermal wadding.
    It also has CE Forcetech protectors on the knees, but can also be upgraded with CE certified hip protectors.

    Superstorm is the state-of-the-art in terms of overpants.
    We used our famous H2Out waterproof/breathable and windbreaking membrane for a more comfortable use on longer rides. This way you'll have a great perspiration and avoid moisture. For this reason we then opted for a 50gr/mq hallow fiber thermal wadding, which works just great for an overpants. Moreover, Superstorm can be equipped with CE Certified Multitech protectors.

    If I had to choose one of them I would definitely go for the Superstorm.
    The main reason is the extra comfort gained by the H2Out breathable membrane.

    Just received my Ergo 365 suit- jacket in ice and pants black. How Spidi was able to make a suit with this much protection so comfortable is truly impressive. Also, had a great experience working with motostorm, highly recommend them as a source for this excellent gear.
    Thanks

    Hi mate,

    Finally time to replace my 13 year old NT jacket!

    Now that the voyager is a 3 layer instead of the 2 layers in the previous models, what's the difference between the Voyager 3 and the Venture?

    Does the venture take this armour? Your website suggests it only takes the compact level 1 armour, but that the Voyager 3 does take the level 2.

    Thanks!

    Hello Matteo,

    I recently bought a Spidi RR Pro pants online in size 46(It has not yet arrived). I am about 5' 6.5 - 5'7 and weight at about 160lbs (athletic build). My question is, i'm hearing alot of differences in terms of sizing for these pants so will these pants be too large or too small for me? Some forum posts ive seen guys have sold their size 46 RR pro pants claiming it's too big on them and they wear size 30x30 jeans which is the size I wear. Please advise if size 46 is the right size for me or should it be lower (maybe size 44?), but I haven't seen anything lower than a 46.

    Other details: my inseam is about 28.5 inches and about a 30-31 inch waist.


    Also I have a Spidi GIGA jacket, will these pants fit with this jacket?

    Hello Spidi - on Track,

    i feel fine now - despite the party last night.

    Thanks for your advice.
    I am just a bit weared about the two models Superstorm and the new Gradus II because on Spidi-Homepage Gradus II is signed as "new".
    So i thought that Gradus II would be the recent and therefore most improved model.
    As i understand Superstorm is the better one against rain and more warm or equal warm compared
    to Gradus II because Superstorm has the H2OUT-membrane and Gradus II has it not.
    But Superstorm is not in category "rainwear", while Gradus II is there the "new" model. Gradus II is also often the more expensive in online shops.

    My main purpose for the thermal pants is to keep me warm on highway-rides on cold days because i am driving a
    Suzuki GS 500 E (built 1996) - a naked bike !

    What pant-size could be appropriate ?
    I measured a waist of 82-84 cm and leg length of 76 cm.
    Usually i wear trousers with inches W32/L30.

    Thanks for your info

    Well Superstorm and Gradus II are both good, it all depends if you need knee protectors or not (standard in Gradus II) and if you like a lighter (Superstorm) or thicker one (Gradus II).
    Your size in both is S.
    Fyi here's Spidi Pants Size Chart

    Hi Juggaknot, how are you?
    I was checking your order's status and couldn't find it; perhaps you didn't purchase those pants via our online store. Do you finally got it delivered to your place?

    I'm afraid the size you bought will be a little too big for you, as the weist size is about 35 inches. For this reason we always have a size chart on our website to help customers finding the right size for their needs.

    http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/motorcycle-pants/rr-pro.html

    Please let me know as soon as you receive your RR Pro Pants.

    Hi Matteo,

    It was ordered through another vendor. I have not yet received it however.

    In looking at your website, the smallest size pants are in fact 46 (the size I ordered). Does Spidi not make those pants in smaller size such as 44 or 42 or are these sizes only special order? Is the RR Pro pants made for guys who are bigger than 5'7 and 160lbs?


    thanks,

    Hi Juggaknot,
    of course we also produce pants in smaller sizes, like for exemps the HI-FIT , the world famous FURIOUS , SIX DAYS and many others.
    About the RR Pro Pants you're right, the smaller size is the 46 but, for those who might need it, is available the On-Fit program to get your custom made motorcycle apparl directly to your place.

    To get more information you can check this page: http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/custom-motorcycle-suits/ or send an email to my collegue in SPIDI at:onfitprogram@spidi.com

    I have a new Ergo 365 Pro Jacket in sixe XL. I am questioning the fit.

    I am 6' Tall and 180-185lbs. I have a narrow build (width across the shoulders) with 44" chest and 33" waist. I seem to fall in between sizes often.

    My XL fits okay, but there is a lot of material bunched up in the back behind the shoulder and in the back around my waist. I have all of the adjustments cinched up and buttoned up almost to their limit.

    I would like to know if the Large would be a better fit. I have seen the chart and XL is for me according to the measurements, but the real world fit is different.

    Also, How much room will Warrior Evo back protector and Warrior chest pad take up? If these items where added XL may be my only choice.

    I would say that with all liners in the shoulder and chest are good fit. All liners out is really too baggy.

    How much smaller is the L in real world fit (not just the chest measurement and sleeve length).

    Overall, I really like the jacket and hope I can find the best fit.

    Do you have a coupon code for spidi gear for ADV members?

    Thank you, for your help.

    I am having trouble adjusting to the left hand pull zippers.

    Hi Smonke
    I was talking about your situation to our production dept and got this informations.

    Given your 44in chest and 33in waist sizes, you can actually fit the two of them. Since you seem to be a pretty sporty guy, with a large chest and a slim waist it's pretty normal you have a good fitting on the shoulder and a little more roomy on the belly.
    In the L size you should get a more slim fitting, but I'm afraid it could be too short, also on the sleeves.

    If you wanna measure your XL size, keep in mind that the L size jacket will be:
    -1in shorter (shoulder to bottom of the jacket)
    -2,36in shorter on Chest circumference
    -2,36in shorter on waist circumference
    -0,6in shorter on sleeves.

    Of course, wearing a EN1621-2 Lev 2 certified Warrior Back protector and a prEN1621-3 certified Warrior Chest protector will help a lot both for safety as well as for correctly fitting your XL.


    Moreover, check a PM for the discount.

    Greetings, my 4 years old jacket started leaking lately and i found out this thread by pure luck, had no idea the membrane does have such guarantee.
    I tried to contact spidi through infoservice@spidi.com and service@spidi.com but after a week still no response. Did the email adress change?
    Regards

    Hi Mr. Lajole, how are you?
    Can you please tell me which model your jacket is?
    Please check the jacket code as written on internal label (code will be letter "D" + 2 or 3 digits number).

    I'll inform my collegue about your situation. As soon as I'll be informed about your jacked name/code I'll give you more information on what to do.

    Thanks again for your interest

    I had no luck with conforming JEANS NET JACKET size (as a jacket for commuting).
    http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/textile-motorcycle-jackets/jeans-net-jacket.html

    L - I can not do up, top of jacket fits perfect
    XL - I can do up, but shoulder protectors are very loose

    Q1) I assume Jeans Net works for very slim men, right?

    It is strange, as I also tried MULTITECH ARMOUR size M.
    It was tight, but I could do up and it fitted not too bad, I would say.
    http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/textile-motorcycle-jackets/multitech-armor.html

    Size L maybe would fit overall better, but then - elbow protector is not kept perfectly next to skin...
    So it is not in line with goal of such armour, which I consider to use instead of regular tex jacket.
    (mostly because protectors would be more stable and tight)

    Q2 Any commenst? I am 174cm and 98kg. Maybe SPIDI is just not my fit, not for my weight?

    Q3) What is abbrasion resistance of Multitech Armour?
    I consider it for commuting as well, without any other technical jacket on it.
    Does it make sense for city, speed I would say max 80 kmh?

    Q4) I also looked on DEFENDER ARMOUR for commuting.
    My understanding is I would have to use external jacket for abbrasion resistance, right?
    http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/motorcycle-protective-gear/armor-170-180.html
    * * *

    Q5) Knee K-NET protectors - again, what about abbrasion resistance?
    http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/motorcycle-protective-gear/k-net.html

    I was always told knee protectors should be used under trousers, but idea of K-NET is on top of trousers, right?
    I like the idea, but again, what are recommendations?
    For slower speed only? What about city and speed up to 80 kmh?

    Thanks in advance for comments!

    Best Regards,
    Jerry

    Hi Jerry, here's what I suggest you:

    Q1: I would definitely go for the XL. The most important thing is to be able to properly close the jacket; moreover, did you tried it with the back protector or not? The jacket can be upgraded with the EN1621-2 lev.1 certified Warrior Back Protector. Using the back protector always modify the fit of a jacket.

    Q2: The jacket you're talking about has a very slim fit, but remember that in SPIDI is always posible to get your apparel custom made: check this page http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/custom-motorcycle-suits


    Q3: Multitech Armor will work perfect for urban commuting, as you intend it. It features an highgly resistant mesh in most of it's surface, but on the chest and shoulders, where the most common impact area is, you find tenax fabric to increase passive safety.

    Q4: Yeah, Defender Armor has been conceived like a perfect armor for sport use, and would be bettere to be fittend unders a jacket. It feature our top-of-the-line racing Biomechanic Protectors.

    Q5: K-NET are also devoted to short, up to mid, range touring. It is idealin those situation where you need to be wearing casual pants at the end of the ride; like in the home-to-office way.
    They feature our EN1621-1 certified Multitech protector, mounted on a high tenacity mesh, and it'll work perfect at speed of 80 Km/h, like in your situation.
    But my suggestion is to use this protectors for commuting, and real motorcycle pants for touring, like our Hurricane pants which features also the H2Out waterproof, breathable and windbreaking membrane.


    Thanks again for your interest
