Quick and easy getting it off/on with boots.
The collar rare earth magnets are genius. They hold the front flaps down in hot weather or during gowning/degowning
It weighs less than my old First Gear jacket and pants, probably due to the armor. D30 armor is heavier than the Stitch brand.
The suit liner feels cool on the skin and helps keep air moving around the body in hot weather. Acts like a tent shade.
Armor is light, gigantic, and forms to body when it warms up. I don't notice it while riding. Optional back and hip armor works very well. The hip armor swings out of the way when accessing street clothes pants pockets.
The hip zippers allow access to street clothes pockets, very convenient to get to your wallet.
The wrist zippers are super convenient. It's great not having to mess with velcro straps.
The thigh pocket is perfect for my garage door opener. Water tight.
The black onesie look is not as lame as I expected. Feels like being a motor officer.
Having to take off the onesie in public is a little weird. Having to take it off in a burger king bathroom is a little awkward and gross. Learned to take a minute to cable tie it to the moto.
Zippers are not the best. Out of the box it was a trick to get the main zipper to mesh up. It's a real pain. I've got it working for now, but can only zip one way. This means I don't get to zip down the front in hot weather. It's not a manufacturing issue, it's a design issue. Worst case, I'll pay the local cobbler to sew in a propper heavy weather zipper.
The neck flap velcro can rub on my neck if not perfectly placed.
I had to buy the back and hip armor separately and it's expensive. Both should be included at this price point.
