    SOLD...Firstgear TPG Expedition one piece textile suit


    Suit 01 by , on Flickr

    I bought this new last winter, thought I'd try the one piece suit thing and well, it just wasn't for me...

    Size large, I'm 5' 10", 195lbs and this suit fits very well, I have broad shoulders and that's where my only fitment gripe might be.

    Ideal height would be a 5' 10" - 6' 2", belly size could be anywhere from lean to beer gut with a lot of adjustability, as previously stated though a muscular upper body causes a tighter fit in the back/shoulder area. That being said, I always wear a armored vest and often wore a heated jacket liner underneath this suit, without either of those the fit is much better in the upper body.

    There are very few miles on this suit, I'd guessing around ~1,000, mostly commuting with two different multi-day tours, never been down. There are a few dirty spots on the suit that are pictured in the link below, and there's what looks like a cigarette burn hole on the front-lower left leg (see pic), I'm not a smoker but it sure looks like a cigarette, maybe caught it from someone flicking a butt out the window of their cage? The suit really is in great used condition, comes with all the armour (shoulders, knees and back), LOADS of zippered vents. No smoking, no pets home.

    The professional review and cutomer reviews from Revzilla present an accurate picture of the suit, check that out here.

    Here's a link to more detailed pics.

    Asking $300 $200, we can figure out shipping and/or delivery based on the sale price and your location.

    Thanks!

    I bought one of these suits last year and love it. With a light fleece jacket and street clothes underneath, it's warm to well below freezing. With the vents open it's good up to the 80s, at least until you're sitting at a red light. It's been waterproof in light/moderate rain but I haven't had a chance to test it in heavy rain yet. It's a great commuting suit and comfortable for long distance travel. The armor's even higher quality than I expected for the price.

    This is a great deal.

    Slow going on the for sale sub-forum, pointless to bump this thread...

    Wait, what?

    Is this priced too high (as some on ADVrider seem to think...)? Or, we're all in agreement that one-piece road suits aren't our "thing"?
