We have received several emails from women concerned with bathroom visits while wearing the suit. Well ladies, the whole point of the suit is that it is incredibly easy to put on and take off. Whenever you need to take a break, just zip off the suit. You don’t even have to take off you boots for this. Why would you want to drag you lovely suit inside a bathroom anyway. The great thing about a one-piece suit is that you can wear whatever you want inside. So when you take off the suit, a comfortable pair of street clothes will be revealed, allowing you to enjoy your break in the most comfortable possible way.
This topic has recently become quite a discussion on the forums and I have copy-pasted a few of the comments below:
A rider commented on ADV:
“I’m going to be the devil’s advocate, although I feel that I’m probably in the minority. But then again, this is ADV; who knows?
I have two different types of riding scenarios:
1) commute to work. Wear my work clothes under my gear, take off gear when I get to work, etc
2) day/long rides: wear spandex-type leggings and appropriate top, put gear on over it
In scenario #1, your suit would be fine. However, for #2, it would not be practical for me to take off the gear when taking a break. I don’t like to parade around a gas station/restaurant/rest area with my spandex-wrapped butt hanging out. I very much like my 2-piece ‘stitch when taking a bathroom break. I get off the bike, walk into the ladies room, unzip the pants from the jacket, lower the pants (just like jean! Nothing’s being dragged all over the floor) and do what I gotta do. If I’m stopping for lunch, I zip off the jacket and can sit comfortably at the table with the pants still on.
Like I said, I’m playing Devil’s advocate. I know that you did a lot of research to make your suit the way you did, and many women will thank you for i. I’m just trying to show you the other side of the coin and why something may not work for other people.”
To this, the response from Teiz was:
“I see where you are coming from but….
The comparison is not fair. You are comparing a 2-piece arrangement (not usually meant to be worn over jeans) to a one piece suit (designed to be an oversuit). I don’t think we want to debate which style is better on this particular thread.
It is also a matter of preference. Due to the nature of my business, i am continuously trying out gear from every brand. On even a mildly hot day, i want to rip off all the gear when i take a break – regardless of brand, materials, etch… When you are not moving, any sort of motorcycle gear will get hot (at least for me). That’s why i prefer to have a presentable layer underneath so I can sit and eat in comfort…. A one piece gives me that flexibility… When riding in a two piece suit, “I” always miss the ability to shed the top most layer.. Personal preference.
I am not quite sure how can sitting in (relatively) heavy and hot riding pants be more comfortable than sitting in shorts or comfy jeans. What if you are somewhere in the rural parts of Mexico and eating from a street vendor. Sitting on he sidewalk. 100+ degrees of blazing sun.. How can you not want to rip off those riding pants? My wife & I have been through similar situations elsewhere and she was quite envious of my ability to emerge in shorts every time we took a break. She got back home and started designing the Revolution suit…”
Having the option of taking the suit off every time you take a break is simply unbeatable and that is just one of the advantages of a one-piece suit.
I am sure several people new to the concept of a one piece will have similar questions in mind. Please feel free to bring up your concerns!
