Question for Aerostich Roadcrafter owners
« on: September 11, 2018, 05:20:53 pm »
I’m considering the ‘Stich Roadcrafter pants and I’m curious to hear from anyone who owns them whether the fact that the zipper runs up the inside of the leg is a concern for water tightness? Seems like the worst possible place to put a zipper, right where your legs hug the fuel tank and water can collect. Am I concerned over nothing? Thanks!

 I have the R3 suit but it still has zippers there.   It has yet to leak in the heavy rains I've ridden in.  I think the C14 has some outstanding bodywork as far as rain control goes.  I've never worn my Stich on a naked bike so cant say for sure in that situation

That’s great to hear. I was in a monsoon from WV to eastern PA last weekend, and not very long into the ride I felt my Tourmaster pants allowing water into the crotch area and felt a cool trickle, well, you know where. I think it was a combination of the water hitting my head/chest and running down the jacket and pooling in my lap and against the tank. The pants weren’t up to the challenge. I’m leaning toward the Roadcrafter over the Darien, but I like the placent of the zipper on the outside of the Darien better.
