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.
