Also will stop in at the only Rivzilla store in the country about 10 miles from the Aerostich show. Will compare the Klim Kodiak Jacket & Pants with the Aerostich.

I’ve been to one of their pop-up shops - don’t know if that’s the same as the roadshow or not, but it sounds similar. I’ve also been to their actual shop, and the level of service and variety of items to try on were similar.


*insert witty remark here*

Me too. In my case it was a pop up store in a vacant strip mall in Denver. I wasn't impressed. They had a lot of stock of production items and returned clothing that had minor to almost imperceptible issues they were looking to unload at supposedly bargain prices. The free gifts were overpriced trinkets. Overall it was a waste of time and gasoline.

Are you sayin' there are guys here who aren't retired? Who else can afford a BMW?


How can safe spaces, trigger warnings & the reporting of micro-aggressions create courageous, resilient citizens?

Almost retired - still a day or two a week.

Spent 2 hours at the RevZilla store (Philadelphia) trying on Klim suits. I liked the Badlands fit/construction the best of Klim suits. Then spent 3 hours at the Aerostich popup show in Cherry Hill.

Decided on a one-piece R3 - grey with black shoulders and knees/lower legs. Having mid gusset material added 1 inch each side to have more room for electric jacket or if I should put on any weight. Also purchased optional back protector. Aerostich with back support and custom tailoring about $600 less than the Klim Badlands jacket/pants. Feel it was definitely worth my while to drive up from DC and get this done without guessing on fit, etc. thumbsup

For those who have known Bob for long it's obvious he's going through some Life Changes stir
He goes from a K bike all buttoned up in tight black gear to a GS and an Aerostich dontknow
Semi-Retirement is suiting him well with the new bike, gear, farkles and even the new tradition of Bob's Thursday Night Pizza Party at STARTs and FARTs dance
