Today I took delivery of my new Fieldsheer Adventurer Jacket and pants.
I immediately unpacked the suit and tried it on. I ordered one sive larger than the chart suggests, hoping to fit work clothes underneath. No dice. Good think
I ordered the extra size. The suit fits with little room to spare.
After getting it on, I decided to take the bike for a spin. It was about 4:30 and the sun would be going down soon. So off I went... Headed torward Elizabeth City, NC. Cruising along, I was a little bit too warm in the chect, but everything else was just right. As I got near E. City, i turned west and headed through the Great Dismal Swamp. Very pretty this time of year.
Sun is going down, temps are rapidly falling. I can feel the temp change in my helmet. Hands are toasty on the warmers and the rest is covered well by the new suit. 120 miles after the start, I roll into my parent driveway. My mother loves to feed me, so she cooks up some dinner. I am amazingly comfortable as I peel off the jacket. Visit for some time and watch the thermometer go down outside.
After dinner, i suit back up. Temp meter says 33 degrees. It is gonna suck i think. But do I go the direct way home? Nope. Stayed on back roads and decided to enjoy the ride. 55 miles to get home. The bike is running very strong (for this, i love cold air). I pay attention to my body and I realize i am a little chilly. Not cold, but just no longer the warm I previously was. I cruise home, never getting to the point of shivers. Pull the bike in the garage and head inside.
Overall, i am very happy. he jacket is not only warm, but the collar keep the cold air off of your neck. The pant legs and sleeves cinch down well and keep a draft from creeping in. All in all, great recomendation from Jetblast10!
