Really? Because lots of people in THIS THREAD seem to be asking for a jacket with more padding and features than the Valdez.

Geez Cody, you gotta remember that an Aerostich suit is all anyone could possibly need.

Exactly.

I mean, why improve upon perfection?

According to other threads, you can make a suit that has many more "features" or "benefits", but are they really "improvements"?

All you really ever will need can be found in a Aerostich suit. Appparently, Goldfine and company have attained the pinnacle of motorcycle touring apparel.

You may think you need something other than a Roadcrafter or a Darien, but c'mon, admit it, all that's just superfluous. If you really boil it down to your basic needs, Aerostich has it covered with these two suits. If you want something else, you're a poser and you wanna be Charlie McEwan.

This suit looks promising but as I wrote before air circulation in the hot climate is a must for me. The harness to carry all that stuff is definitely not interesting since I and many riders don't carry bunch of stuff on our selves. The consequences during a crash can be severe. During a competition situation that harness can be handy to caryy water, food etc but in a non-competitive adventure riding those things can be carried on the bike.
The price is way too high. I understand the suit has a lot of R&D behind it with superb quality materials but at the end of the day, we should be able to afford it, right

The question is, can I convince my wife to buy this suit as a xmas present

I'm thinkin the folks that DO need all the features will find a way to afford this suit . . . .

It's a chicken/egg thing -- the suit couild be less expensive if more folks ordered it, but more folks won't order it unless it drops in price . . . .

Imagine how much a Nikon would cost if only pros bought em.

Pyndon rode it across the Sahara. He says it's good. I've seen it in person, and you couldn't get more venting and still be weather and crash resistant. IMHO, YMMV, etc etc.

Charlie can't afford to wear it either.

Sounds good to hear that it ventilates good. From the pictures of Sahara ride, I can see that Pyndon used a body armour under the jacket. But I am curiuos about these d3o protections as well. Is there any other company using these protections or anybody has any experience of these protections?

FirstGear just started using it, pushing their jackets upwards of US$400.00 for the first time.
