They custom make the gear to your measurements. If you order the Kevlar street jeans, you send them your favorite pair of regular jeans and they make the riding pants using your regular jeans as a template. So if your regular jeans fit you perfectly, the Kevlar jeans will fit you perfectly, too.

And, I must say, my g/f in her Motoport Stretch Kevlar street jeans looks pretty darn sexy. Did I mention the material is stretchy? For the best "looking" jacket, you could go with one of their waist length jackets, like the GP-2 stretch Kevlar, or the Monroe Air Mesh (designed for Women), or the Air Mesh Kevlar jacket (what I wear). If you want a bit more versatility at the expense of not as sexy, you can go with a 3/4 length, like the Marathon Air Mesh Kevlar, or Marathon stretch Kevlar (what my g/f wears).

Remember, the Motoport gear is custom made. So you can pick your colors. You can have the pockets done how you want. For example, on my street jeans, I got no front or rear pockets and, instead, got side entry pockets that are zippered with a velcro flap (like an Aerostich suit) and I got cargo pockets made with stretch kevlar (so they aren't loose and floppy when empty, but will still hold bulkier items).

And the Motoport gear is, in my opinion, the best protection you can buy for street riding. It is better than race leathers, which, in turn, are way better than an Aerostich Roadcrafter. And anything less protective than a Roadcrafter (which I also have) is not worth wearing. I.e. I, personally, won't ride in anything less protective than my Roadcrafter. And I generally don't actually wear anything but my Motoport gear - unless I'm on a race track, where I wear my one piece leathers.

Unlike the more popular Motoport styles you usually see on AdvRider, my suit fits like my custom leathers. It's all down to what you want.



And my g/f's suit fits her very nicely, too, in my opinion.
