I have been planning to replace my 7 year old, well worn First Gear jacket and pants before next year. I have researched many of the brands, and had pretty much narrowed the choices to either the Aerostitch of another First Gear set. Then along comes the Technics wholesales rep, who is a client of my wifes, with an offer to sell me a suit for cost. I looked through the catalogue and pretty much chose the top of the line (my champagne taste as always) textile jacket and pants that Technics makes.
Before I decide to buy this suit, I would like some feedback from anyone who has experience with this brand. I know they have been around a while and the stuff looks pretty good, but how does it compare to Aerostitch and others? The Cyclone suit is a Gore-Tex garment. How good is this stuff in continous heavy rain? I want one suit for all conditions. Hot weather is not a big concern here, I need warm and dry to get me through what passes for our riding season. The jacket does have venting which should be good for all but the hottest days here, and for those days I do have a mesh jacket I can use.
