Jerry has the right idea.
OK, I've got some ideas about what I'm going to do with the Multitech. My seamstress is pretty good, but she barely speaks English, so describing this is going to be a challenge, haha!

It is better to use a waterproofing spray product that you can use only on the area where it's supposed to be.

While applying this spray, pay attention to cover the reflex areas with some paper. You definitely don't want the spray to damage the certified reflective material of your Ergo 365 Pro Expedition.
And remember not to be too close to the jacket when apllying it. Stay at least at 1mt distance, making wide movement. Then let it dry for an hour, or as indicated on the products infos.

Should the waterproof liner also be sprayed with the treatment?

Improving the Multitech...

I wanted my seamstress to add a velcro strap in the forearm area, but she said she couldn't do a decent job due to the mesh. So, she just made the whole arm narrower (from the wrist to the bicep)- just a simple hem (is that what it's called?). And, I swapped the shoulder pads with some elbow pads (they were A*'s from another jacket, but pretty much the same size as the Spidi elbows). It worked perfectly- it comes down far enough on my bicep so the velcro strap grabs it. But, not so far as to hit the elbow pads. And, I only have the top part of the pad in the shoulder-pad pocket, but I rode for 2 hours today (one hour off-road), and it was great. I didn't crash-test anything (yet), but I'm confident that this config will work fine.

Hi ChildlikeWonder,
no you d should not spray the waterproofing spray on the H2Out membrane.
They work in different way and it'll affect the characteristics of the membrane itself.

Hi OTB,
no the NL5 pants doesn't feature any pockets.
However, the pockets are present on the Summer Fit mesh pant.
Light, easy-to-use and versatile trousers ideal for spring-time and summer-time use, features stretch inserts and a wide range of adjustmetns developed in order to maintain a high level of comfort no matter the riding position of ride length. Has pockets on the front.


Otherwise, you can opt for the practical Mesh Leg.
Mesh Leg is a practical garment that can be used both above casual pants, thanks to two long zips on the sides, as well as a motorcycle pant itself, featuring good ventilation and protectiveness.


Technical features:

- High abrasion resistant elastic mesh

- Polyamide outer fabric on sides and back

- Full-length side zips

- EN 1621-1 certified protectors on the hips and knees, height adjustable

- Velcro adjustment on hips

- 1 back pocket

Hi Matteo

A question on glove sizing.
I need to update my winter gloves and I'm looking at the Carbo Winter. My old, about 10 years I think, H2Out gloves are a medium but I recently tried on the Carbo 3 and the large was the best fit. Does the Winter fit like the 3?
Also wondering if the Carbo Track has a similar fit?
Hard trying to find Spidi gear to try on here in Canberra, nice to be able to get your input.

Cheers,
Pete

Hi Pete, how are you doing?
Carbo Winter is a beautiful glove and you should go with the L size.



Carbo Winter is the final result of this process and is going to sit at the top of the winter touring range with its triple fastening, the aerodynamic knuckle padding, racing stretches and performing leather with Keramide layers. All these race-oriented features are coupled with H2OUT membrane, anti water barriers and soft Primaloft wadding, typical of winter touring gloves.


The same size should be right for Carbo Track racing glove.

Dear Matteo

I would like to return to my message from 18.12.2013 (page 43). I bought Patriot pant in XL size, but pant were too short, I replaced to XXL size, length were ok, but pants were too broad. Diler told me that at this moment SPIDI withdrew from produce long version for pants. Do you have plan to return to produce long version for few models? Generally all main competitors (Rukka, Revi't etc) have still in offer models with long version. What about SPIDI?

Based on these two sizes, I can tell that for me the best option is L/XL size with long version.

Matteo,

I am a tall and thin guy in search for a jacket and pants that fit properly. I have tested a Venture H2Out jacket in medium and VTM pant in large, neither of which fit well enough to keep. I am hoping you can advise if there are any other options in the Spidi range that may fit a slender fellow like me: 6' tall, 37" chest, 35" sleeve, 31" waist, 35" inseam.

The medium Venture is close, but the sleeves are a bit short causing the jacket to pull tightly across the back, and the elbow pads hit me too high on the arm. The torso is manageable, but roomy, and the neck opening is large but folds inwards uncomfortably when adjusted tighter.

The large VTM pants are a good length, but rather large in the waist.

My preferences are: high visibility, waterproof with some venting (ideally a hard shell with bonded waterproof versus removable liner), simple design. The Superhydro jacket seems like a viable option, but can you estimate if the fit will be better for my frame?

Many thanks!
Soren

Hi Marcin, how are you?
In Spidi collection lot of pants are equipped with a practical telescopic gaither, to adapt the lenght of the pants to different riders.
Pants like the Marathon, the Hard Track or the Ergo feature this solution.

Also, the Thunder pant is totally designed for taller riders, with a particular construction and design that sould be your choice.
It is of course equipped with EN 1621-1 certified protectors on hips and knees and the H2Out waterproof and breathable membrane.
Even in this case the gaither is present.

What material does Spidi use for mesh? I am looking for a polyamide or nylon mesh suit for the summer.

Hi ChildlikeWonder,
many of the mesh product by Spidi uses Polyammide or higher end fabrics, to achieve the unparalleled quality level of our collection.

The famous Multitech Armor features a polyammide mash fabric, with Nylon reinforcements on impact areas. It is also equipped with EN 1621-1 certified joints protectors, EN 1621-2 certified back protector and prEN 1621-3 certified Chest protectors.

Talking about adventure touring, I will also put an eye on the Netforce H2Out jacket.
The external shell features Dinatech Shoeller® high resistance mesh fabric and two inner liners (one waterproof and one insulating) that are wearable as stand alone jackets once off the bike.


Riders can freely combine the three layers according to outside temperature and weather condition, makings Netforce ideal for long journeys in which multiple on the road conditions will be faced.


Equipped with CE Force Tech protectors and among the first jackets compatible with a CE Level 2 inner back protector (Warrior Evo inside). Also compatible with CE Level 1 back and CE Chest Protector.

I already own a Rev'It Sand 2, so that knocks out the Netforce H2Out as being more expensive than I need (I wish I knew about the Netforce H2Out when I bought my Sand 2, the Netforce H2Out seems to be much better gear - I also wish you guys used Goretex in your higher level gear). If I could afford it, I would probably just start over with the Netforce H2Out, but I cannot afford to have two expensive suits like that. Is there anything from Spidi that is for adventure touring (or just touring) that is made from Polyamide/nylon mesh and is not as expensive as the Netforce since I do not need it to have waterproofing or a thermal liner?
