Soren M. from Illinois

April 23, 2012
Just completed my first long range trip (Central Il through Mo N Arkansas and back; 1,100 miles/25hrs on bike). I put the Fieldsheer Mercury Overpants, Scorpion Strike Jacket and Alpinestar ST1 Dynastars gloves to the test. Rode in heavy pouring rain for 2 hours w rain gear over jackets and pants. Rain seeped through rain gear and Scorpion Jacket. Thighs on pants were wet too. Next day rode in medium rain for 45 min , no rain gear and stayed dry...Verdict gear is rain resistant not submersible. Everything dried out nicely. Over pants fit okay. Waist measurement is actually at belly button. Normally wear a 40" jean. These are 42" fit pretty good. All in all I am happy with everything I have bought from Thanks for making me feel comfortable and protected on my trip.
