Rukka Merlin jacket/pants vs. Aerostich Transit jacket/pants
 
Does anyone have any first-hand experience with either the Rukka Merlin jacket/pants or the Aerostich Transity jacket/pants?

Thanks for any input.

there's an Aerostich Transit jacket in flea market right now... hit him up for feedback and why he's selling.

Any update on the feedback regarding the Transit? And, while we're at it, anyone have any experience with both?

I've had my transit suit for thee years.
 
I bought my suit three years ago after reading a report by Yermo Lamers

Last year at this time I put a sidecar on my bike and have been riding steadly all winter

In the winter I use a Gerbings heated jacket, I wear merino wool long underware and thats about it. This last year I've put on close to 5k on the outfit and never been wet.

In warmer weather its just a t-shirt the jacket I leave unzipped and a large vent across the back gets rid or the air

I believe the material used is the same as the Rukka Merlin

I like the leather because it's quieter to ride in

Just an afterthought you don't want to gain weight after getting this :rofl

I have a Transit, what do you want to know? Mine has never been in rain, live in the southwest, the heat coating makes the surface temp lower, but it's still a thick black leather set of gear.
