I had a bad experience with a Motoport tailored jacket....I 'll just leave it at that.

I have two Areostich Roadcrafters . I also have a Motoport, jacket and pants. I use the Roadcrafters for commuting mostly or offroad riding for their protection. For longer range stuff, I use the Motport jacket and I'll wear the pants over jeans when it is cool but remove them when it warms up more.

I like them all BUT, I haven't been down with any of them. Well, other than one of the acrostiches, went down in gravel offroad - took a corner too fast but only 30mph or so. Slide good, no issues with body other than I dislocated one thumb (popped that back in myself) and I bruised one knee - had to get fluid removed. However, had I NOT been fully clothed it would have been ugly digging ravel out of body and who knows what else. As it was, I road home.

Great product, But For what they cost, Motoport should include some armor with the pants, Buy the armor you're paying another $300!!

Motoport:

Very high quality safety oriented gear. Stiff uncomfortable and hot. Expensive.

Another vote for Motoport and Hi-Viz! Hi-Viz colors reflect light and heat.

Another plug for Motoport except I'd go for the full textile, not mesh. I too live in the hot humid South and I love my textile Motoport stretch Kevlar.

Robeth, have you had a chance to do any more experimenting with mesh versus textile?

I ride too fast, too far, and too often to ride anything but a Goldwing rolling on a car tire pulling a Tailwind trailer because friends don't let friends vote Democrat.

Glen, honestly I have not had that opportunity. I haven't really done much riding after my wreck last August.

However, I just bought a new (to me) Wing and hope to get in many miles this summer.

Stay tuned!!

Ride safely.

It is like sport to a fool to do wrong, but wise conduct is pleasure to a man of understanding.

I have Motoport Kevlar Mesh. great quality but I would not get mesh again, I gave up on mesh jackets years ago. In summer, they just let more hot air in anyway. I would look at the Motoport cordura pants. I have Olympia cordura pants, very nice quality but really hot. I can't wear them above about 70 degrees. No vents at all.

Another vote for motoport. They are expensive, however they are high quality. Kevlar stretch textile is heavy and hot, but you get used to it. Mesh is OK, but can be rough in stop/go traffic. LD comfort shirts and sleeves you can soak in cold water with TEXTILE jacket, not mesh.
