Aerostich is a company based in Duluth, Minnesota that produces and sells motorcycle safety clothing and other motorcycle related equipment, such as GPS systems, luggage, and hand tools. It was founded in 1983 by Andy Goldfine, who is also the founder of the nonprofit Ride To Work, Inc. and was elected to a third three-year term as an American Motorcyclist Association board member in 2008.
They are best known for the textile protective clothing they create, including the one-piece Roadcrafter suit and Darien jacket. Some track day organizations, such as NESBA, allow riders to use textile suits such as the Aerostich instead of full racing leathers.
