Storing Aerostich R3 on your bike question

Can anyone tell me if they are able to store their one piece Aerostich suit in their saddlebags? I also have a Shad SH 45 trunk that would actually be my preferred location but I’m thinking there might not be a good chance of finding someone with that trunk and suit combination.
Plan to order the suit tomorrow and that would be a really nice to have option especially for commuting.

You can indeed. It's VERY tight though. Don't expect to be able to store anything else in there at the same time.

Top case would work better.

I've done both.

You will love the R3.

Workin' them angels overtime ...

I took out all my padding except the elbows. Packs much easier. Ya, ya, I know about safety but abrasion resistance was my main concern. And, yes, I crashed at about 55 and no, I wasn't injured. Suit was totaled. Didn't have it fixed because after years of use, it was too small and too old.

Thanks guys. Went and ordered the suit. Did it online because all their phones were down from a blizzard there in Duluth.
I’m hoping I can use the trunk with all the pads in it but I have about six weeks to wait to find out. Should have done this ten years ago.

I wish I’d ordered aerostich sooner. I have a lot of gear. A lot of high end gear.

There is no gear I cherish more than my Darien’s.

No commercials. No dictators.
