Road Grimed Astronaut

Look what showed up in the mail today from Aerostitch. Earlier in the week I got an email from Andy Goldfine (or more likely from a staff member) asking me how the Roadcrafter Light was working out. This was prompted by a couple of photos that Dom posted on his blog from the Garden of the Gods Park a few weeks back. I gave them some feedback and mentioned that it has been used almost daily over the last 2 1/2 years in temperatures ranging from -47°F to +107°F (-44°C to +42°C). There was a signed thank you note in the envelope along with the two patches and sticker.

One comment that I made was that when this riding suit eventually gets replaced, it will be with a Roadcrafter Classic instead of the Light. But that wouldn't be for quite a while. I am in the process of repairing the little pockets that hold the magnets in the collar. The material is actually worn through in a couple of areas like this.

    1. It would appear so. I mentioned that you took the picture not me as they had asked about using the pictures in their catalog.

    2. That is pretty cool for you and Dom! You two just keep getting more famous. Congratulations!

    3. They can use the pics if they attribute the blog name! :)

    1. Still not sure what to do with the patches. Maybe put them on my backpack...

    1. Everyone always jokes that the Roadcrafter looks like some sort of space suit...
