I'm interested in the Voyager 2 jacket.

The smallest size listed at both Revzilla and the Spidi Italian website is Medium.

I'm a skinny guy, about a 36-inch chest (92-cm) and 145 pounds (66-kg). My Dainese leather race jacket size 46 euro fits perfectly.

Would the Voyager 2 in a Medium fit?

Mille grazie

Hi Vato,

yes size Medium is the smallest size and will fit you.


Thanks again for your interest

I just rec'd my Voyager 2 jacket size M from Revzilla today (ordered it 2 days ago). Although I only had a chance to try it for a few minutes before rushing back to work, my initial impressions are quite favorable. Best of all, it fits great, even with the liner in! I bought the Voyager 2 precisely because it's a 3-season jacket (fall-winter-spring). Most of my riding is around the back roads of the Bay Area and it gets cold here, even during the summer. The Voyager 2 should work well. I'll do a full review elsewhere on ADV after I log in a few more miles with the jacket.

I also bought a pair of Hurricane H2Out pants from the Spidi website. The order went through but no news about when it'll be shipped. I know that much of Italy shuts down during August. Is that the case with Spidi, too?

Thanks.

Dear Vato,

thanks so much for your orders.

Your order will be shipped tomorrow and you could receive it next Monday.
I will look for the full review (don't forget to review the jacket in Revzilla site).

I hope you enjoy your Spidi gear in fantastic adventures.


Thanks again

I received the Hurricane H2Out pants as scheduled on Monday via DHL. I was a bit concerned about the customs charges that others were dinged with but the delivery went without a hitch. Vittoria at Spidi was quite helpful in this area.

If Spidi has anymore free shipping promos, I'd definitely consider ordering other products.

Anyway, the Hurricane pants in small fit very well. I think they default to a 30-inch waist (my size) but can be fine-tuned down to 28 if need be. Although the fit is what I'd describe as snug, they're not tight, and I should be able to fit a base layer underneath the H2Out liner when the weather gets cooler. The knee armor is adjustable -- how awesome is that? -- but right now seems fine out the box. The inseam is 30 inches. Again, perfect for me.

For the last few years I've been wearing leathers exclusively but before that I wore Aerostich in various manifestations. Although the quality is no doubt top-notch, I was never satisfied with the fit, which seems cut for American midwesterners (you know who you are). I was looking at some old photos of me in my Roadcrafter 1-piece and could only think how ugly it looked. In contrast I got the thumbs-up from my girlfriend when I paraded in front of her with my Voyager 2 jacket and Hurricane pants. "Hot Euro dude," her eyes said...

Of course we'll see how this Spidi gear holds up over time. Once I get more miles under my belt I'll do a review here on ADVrider. BTW, I posted a quick review of the Voyager 2 jacket on Revzilla.

Grazie mille!

Anybody got the Tour S7? Can't find any reviews. Looks like a great winter commuter jacket and trouser kit.

As my first options were not quite what I expected, this is looking good.
Thanks

The 2013 Spidi Hard Track Suit

We introduce today the all-new 2013 Spidi Hard Track Suit.
This suit is an evolution of the Spidi Marathon Suit. The main upgrade is the external shield, which now features a 3-layers Polyammide which provide a very high level of waterproofness. The design of the Hard Track aims to enforce extreme uses of the bike.

Here we go with first pictures, we'll come back later with deeper analysis.

Of course it is !
A very smart and practical solution coming straight from Dakar and main rally races.

It looks like a cross between the Marathon and the Expidition Pro.

How is the shell different to my Expidition, Matteo?

Looks good by the way

Hard Track vs Ergo 365 Pro Expedition

Well, first of all Ergo 365 Pro Expedition is CE Level 2 Certified, which means it's on a level of its own in terms of safety and protection.
Many features are similar to Ergo's (Hydroback, 3 removable layers etc.) but doesn't give all the benefits of Ergo (removable waterproof pockets, chest and forearms high-size airvents, 3M high-visibility certification etc.).

Hard Track is lighter than Ergo, Spidi had the target to build a very light and comfortable suit ,even in hard situation like a Dakar rally.

Sweet!

If it works as well as my Spidi summer and Spidi 3 season stuff then it will be a great suit.

Bravo Matteo!
