    Perfetto! I wish I looked at Spidi more closer before! Are there pants to go with it?

    Spidi Patriot also have this telescopic gaither but this is only for membrane not for outside material, so it's not good solution.

    I will be in Italy in next week, do you have in Italy "SPIDI Store" (something similar like D-Store for Dainese)?

    Hi Matteo

    Thanks for the advice on gloves. Will be ordering shortly.
    I've also been looking at a leather jacket for cooler weather and the Heritage is looking likely.
    Given the medium Super GT is a good fit with the lining in should I be looking at a 48 or 50?
    And what would you recommend for waterproof over pants with knee and hip armour? I want something I can wear over a pair of jeans for protection and warmth then leave in the panniers when I get to where I'm going. Prefer something I can get on and off without removing my boots.

    Cheers,
    Pete

    Hi Pete,
    the Heritage jacket is lovely and you will definitely appreciate the comfort of it.
    As for the size, the 48 will be your best option. And you will still have room for back protector.

    About removable waterproof pant, Superstorm H2Out are what you're looking for.

    Practical thermal and waterproof overpants, equipped with two long side zip to facilitate the wearing over casual trousers.

    Insulating lining with 50gr/mq wadding

    Zip along the leg
    Many adjusting possibilities with Velcro

    What material is used for the mesh on the Net Evo Tex jacket? Also, any word on when it will be available to purchase?

    Hi Matteo,

    Is there any more news about the new body armour? Do you know when it is likely to be launched? Will it be this year?

    Also, is it planned to achieve the latest CE Level 2 standard for body armour?

    Many thanks for any info. I'm interested in upgrading the elbow and shoulder armour in my Venture DPS.

    Dear Valentino, how are you?
    There is no "body armor" lev.2 protection; there are different certification for each part of the body.
    We do have EN 1621-2 Lev 2 certified back protector since many years.

    Joint protector certification is EN1621-1 (used for shoulder, elbow, hips and knees). It does not refers to the body protector. This certification as always been in one single level so far, however, since some months it has been added a new level for it. This new level is basically looking after different range of use of those protectors (from hot weather to chilly temperatures, humidity level etc.)
    The majority of our protectors already achieve those level, and we're going to mark them with the new certification level soon. There is no need for you to upgrade the protectors in you Venture.

    The full certification you are talking about is the EN 13595, that we achived already years ago with the outstanding ERGO 365 Pro.

    Hi Matteo,

    That's right about different temperatures. In addition, the new Level 2 for joint protectors has two levels of energy absorption (EN 1621-1). Both D30 Xergo and Forcefield NeT offer Level 2 joint protection across a wide temperature range. It would be great if Spidi could develop similar joint protection; I would be happy to pay to upgrade the joint protectors in my Venture to CE Level 2.

    Matteo, I keep coming back to the Spidi line. I wear a Klim Latitude set of gear currently and its pretty good except I am not happy with the fit. Its too baggy for a skinny guy like me. The best thing it has going for it is the waterproof shell without the hassle of stopping to put a liner on.

    Could you answer a few questions for me?

    • Do any of your jackets have a waterproof shell or are they ALL a waterproof liner?
    • Spidi has a HUGE line to choose from, but I have troubles with navigating your website. Every time I push the 'back' button I am forced to reselect my gender, style of riding, etc, and start all over. Is there a way to order a paper catalog?
    • What is the difference between the Hard Track H2OUT Jacket and the HT Raid Jacket? They look almost identical.
    • Since, sadly, I cannot try on this kit in person before purchasing, what are the return policies? Can I simply return the item (in new condition with tags of course) for not liking it? Does the return shipping fall on me or you? I wish more high-end gear manufacturers could find a way to get product on dealers' shelves, but all they seem to want to sell is the low-end stuff.

    Thanks for your time in anwering.

    Dear Valentino,
    what you say is true, and as told on previous message, lot of our protectors are already in compliance with the new criteria.
    We will be soon registering them under the lev.2. No techincal modification will be needed for them. Remember that Lev.1 was just the "minimal requirement" absorption level for a protector, and our Safety Lab always go way further those limits.

    Hi Flux_capacitor, how are you?
    Thank you for all these question, I understand what you're looking for.

    1) We do have jackets with waterproof shell: look at the Superhydro, the SuperGT, Tour S7 and many others.

    2)You don't have to pusch the "back button" on your browser. Why don't you just use the menu on the left column of the website? You can easily switch to one category to another.

    3) Hard Track and H.T. Raid are basically the very same jacket. It's just a different style and more "factory rider" look.

    4) If you ourchase online, you can easily return the good and try a different size. You only have to keep all the tag, and return the jacket in good conditions.
    Anyway, we're expanding our presence on the american market, so it will be easier to see our products near you.

    Hi Matteo,

    A couple of years ago I bought the Superstorm H2Out from you based on your comments in this thread and I have been really pleased with them.
    HOWEVER, we have just started our winter here in Australia and riding in moderate rain the pants have started to leak in the crotch area and making me look like I have "relieved" myself in my work pants that I wear under the Supertorm's... no good!
    I have always taken good care of the pants and there are no visible signs of the seams splitting or anything similar so not sure how the water is leaking through. Any ideas?
    I have read you saying that the H2Out membrane is guaranteed for 10 years, would this then be covered under such guarantee?

    Cheers,
    Jorge

    Dear Jorge, how are you?
    Sorry to hear what what happened to you.
    The only way to proceed in this situation is to contact the dealeriship you purchased the item to, or, if you bought it in our store @ spidi.com, you can click on the customer service web page: http://www.spidi.com/eu/eu_en/informazioni

    My collegues will be happy to find a solution for your case.

    I see the Hard Track pant is not available in Tall sizes. A Rev'It Large Long is the shortest that fits me. How much height adjustment is there in the Hard Track's knee armor? I'm trying to figure out if it would work with my height.
