Base Layer | LDComfort or Motoskiveez
« on: April 22, 2017, 01:32:38 pm »
I have a set of LD Comfort. Work well. Especially on some wet day rides in the India mountains.

Thinking about adding / replacing. MotoSkiveez seem to be gaining popularity among ADV / Long Distance riders. Pricey though.

Looking for pros & cons - LDComfort v MotoSkiveez (or any other alternative brand/option)

Motoskiveez didn't work for me.  The product was to thick/bulky and I never could get comfortable.  I will mention the customer service from Motoskiveez  was outstanding.

Have the LD Comfort riding shorts and like them a lot. Thinking about getting a backup pair and Long Sleeve Top.

I dont have any experience with LD Comfort, but I did recently purchase some Moto Skiveez at Overland Expo in Flagstaff, AZ.  Wore them for the first time on a day-long dirt bike ride where I spent several hours in the saddle of my KTM 400.  The Adventure shorts with their butt pad completely eliminated and sore spots and I finished the day feeling great and ready to ride another several hours.  The shirt worked great under my compression suit and kept me cool and dry (though it was not an especially warm day).  Overall I am quite happy with my purchase.

I have three pairs of LD Comfort shorts and one long sleeve top. They work very well for me and have no complaints. Easy to take a roadside, or bathroom, pee with the front opening designed just for that.

Tried Moto Skiveez and they did not work for me. Can't recall what the specific issue was now. Maybe now with a new saddle I will give them another try.

A key to longevity with any of this gear is gentle machine washing and air drying. The dryer will tear this stuff up in short order. I use a dry bag for washing on the road followed by line drying.
