Been looking at the 365 jacket and pants here as I need a new all-year, on-off road suit now (see thread elsewhere).
My big worry is that, despite even the non-pro jacket costing almost £700 here in the UK (!!) it looks to me like the system means in winter here (rain every day) the outer jacket will get sodden. I appreciate the inner layer will keep me dry, but that leaves me doing [ahem] MPH in temps barely above freezing in a jacket soaked with freezing water.
Seems that if you live in a cold/wet country like this there really isn't a genuine "all year" suit solution, because you need Gore-tex Pro Shell style weatherproofing in winter, and something totally different in the warmer months.
:-(
Which is a pity, coz these Spidi jackets look the absolute ***** otherwise and I love them.

Dear Isk,

thank you for your interest in Ergo 365 pro Jacket.
I don't know where you took information, but they're wrong.
Ergo 365 Pro jacket features a 3-layers external shield. More deeply, the external fabric is made by the following 3 layers:

1st layer: 100% Nylon Oxford with Teflon Water Repellant treatment (it's the black fabric on the outside:
2nd layer: H2Out® Hydropholic Membrane 3000 WP / 5000 TR (it's the white lamination in the middle)
3rd layer: 18D Tricot (it's the Comfort part in the inner)

This is just the external fabric.

Of course this is worn together with the removable membrane (separate jacket) and the thermal liner (separate jacket).

What does this mean?
If you ride in full winter time (in UK for example) you wear the 3 jackets together, while the external 3-layers-fabric doesn't get sodden at all, because of its water repellent treatment.

Again, if you ride in rainy condition in very hot climates, you just use the external 3-layers shield, close all the 6 big air intakes, stay dry, with high breathability, and don't get sodden.

PLease have a look to how our Step-in-clothing system works here.

Please reply for any question or doubts about Ergo or other Spidi H2Out® Serie items.

Thanks for your attention.

It's a fair cop - I'll try to find a dealer and have a look at one.

Dear Isk,

let me know which city you're located in.
I'll try to find a dealer that stocks Ergo 365 Pro and eventually we'll organize a delivery for you to try the jacket, no problem at all.

Thanks for your attention.

Matteo,

Thanks for this, really appreciate your help with it.
Really struggling this morning though. I've called the six Spidi stockists nearest me (although they're all 50+ miles away). Not one keeps the 365 suit. They say it's just too expensive for them to keep in stock. They can all get one for me, but of course if I'm spending that kind of money I need to try them on to find the best size.
All a bit frustrating.
Nearest city to me is Oxford, or Swindon - but I think my nearest dealers are in London.

I'm sorry Matteo, but they say no.
GPL say they do not keep the jackets in stock as they are too expensive. They say I can guess my size in jacket and pants from the on-line Spidi size chart, pay for both (£1000) then they'll order one, and then two weeks later it'll be in, and I can travel to Guilford (which is some long way from London and considerably further from me) and try it on at their "counter" (they don't have a shop).
If, after all that, it doesn't fit, I can have a refund, guess another size, pay again and do the whole thing again.
I know you're doing your best, but if you're asking people to spend upwards of £1000 and choose your kit above the likes of Rukka you have to do better than this.
I can travel to three Rukka dealers within 30 minutes of where I live, examine the range, try on sizes and then buy. Same for Hein Gericke kit.
Sorry if I sound frustrated, but in a recession my thinking of spending £1000+ with Spidi shouldn't leave me feeling like I'm privileged to have the chance to spend and should, therefore, do it blind.

Hello Matteo,

I'm interested in the Trackster Tex jacket, and some questions since none of the retail locations in my area has it in stock for me to check in person.

It seems many SPIDI jackets can attach to SPIDI pants by zipper. Does the Trackster Tex have a zipper for this purpose, and would it be able to mate with a pair of PGrid pants that I currently own?

The SPIDI Web site makes no mention of a zipper for the Trackster, though there is mention of a Clip Stop feature "..to ensure jacket stays in position when attached to trousers." What is Clip Stop?

Thank you!

Hi,

Trackster Tex Jacket features clip-stop system to be connected to pants.
Clip-stop ensures a snug fit at higher speeds; it's made of a high-resistance fabric tape locked by a button, that you can lock around your trousers' belt, or around belt loop.

Hopefully I've been clear enough.

Hi Klingklang,

hopefully I will be more prepared than my Italian collegues about Flux Rainsuit.
Let me know which info you need.
In the meanwhile, I remind you Flux Rainsuit is part of our Hi-visibility collection, that you can check at this address; as you probably know, Spidi is very serious about high visibility: our H2 Life Rain, for example, is certified EN 471, which is the European standard certification for high visibility in professional clothing (like policeman, fireman etc.).





Let me know which Tuta Flux features are you interested in.
