Re: CleanMPG Reviews the Aerostich Darien Jacket and Pants
I have had a Roadcrafter for 6 years and the crotch leak thing really only shows up in a fair amount of rain, and if it was raining that bad, visibility was the limiting factor. I think there is an improved zipper now, but the old one wasn't that bad.
It had to go back one time two years after I got it for a seam that let loose, which bummed me out, but other than that it has been great. The only time I got uncomfortably wet wearing it was in a monsoon-like storm in Alabama that I should have not been on the bike during anyway. It's an everyday piece of riding equipment that 'just works.'
I have the Hi-Viz suit myself. I don't know if the color makes any difference or if the rider who would select a dorky looking suit on the alleged safety benefit of the color would generally be a more cautious rider.
