I have ridden my motorcycles year around for almost 30 years now. I know a few things about cold weather riding. I bought the Thermo suit because it was recommended to me by a biker friend. Not cheep, but he swore by it. I put my money down and I've never looked back. Best money I have EVER spent on ANYTHING dealing with a motorcycle. I rode 200 miles of interstate at 70 to 80 mph from 3 am to 5 am one morning to get to a hospital for my sons surgery. It was 23 degrees when I climbed on the bike. I was wearing a short sleeved polo shirt and some cargo pants under the suit. My body never got cold. My toes and fingers liked to have gotten frostbite but, other than that, I stayed warm. If you ride in the cold do yourself a favor and just get one. If Firstgear stopped making them, you couldn't buy mine for any amount of money.
