Are the aforementioned leg pockets the ones at the knee? I'm not sure I like a below knee pocket.

Is the internal pocket waterproof (a dry pocket)? I'm not a fan of my iPod getting wet.

Can we get a closer pic of the collar? I'm looking for both comfortable and capable of blocking out wind with use of a scarf or windbreaker (heated gear) and balaclava.

What is the intended temperature range for this suit?

Would you also consider reflective strips (not just piping) on the backs of the ankles? My Fieldsheer Highland II suit has that and I light up in low light and in the dark. Even in a grey suit, that is an incredible way to break up patterns and make yourself seen (or get the idiot behind you to disengage the auto-pilot and keep me safer).

Though I'm not a fan of pink, baby blue, etc myself, I do like a bit of decorative stitching that may suggest this is a female rider. Might that be an option?

BTW: I am very fond of a custom suit. I have had gastric bypass and even womens clothes do not fit my (deflated) shape well. I also find, unlike many women, though I am 5'6", I cannot get arms or legs long enough in much womens gear. I don't look like a freak, but most womens gear makes me feel like it.

Hello

a) the pockets are on the thighs, not below the knee

b) we will confirm on internal pocket being waterproof in the final specs of the suit

c) the collar is super comfortable with a soft lining even in front of the throat. we will have close up pictures when the second prototype is available.

d) Temperature ranges are always a personal thing because the threshold for cold/heat is different for everyone. This is intended to be a 4 season suit. Generally, it should be good enough for serious winter riding (with the Exkin thermal liner) but also work great in the summer due to the multiple vents. The waterproof liner will be removable to allow for better airflow.

e) we will be using reflective strips rather than piping.

f) the final design will be reflected in the next prototype

-----

Update: we are waiting for another prototype to be completed. Once that prototype arrives, we will have a better idea of availability and pricing. We hope to start taking orders in early/mid May.

thanks

Awesome. Thanks.

Pardon me for clarifying here, is the liner thermal or waterproof? Is the suit waterproof without the liner?

Heyy thanks for the compliment! Since the suit will be custom made, you guys are free to choose your own colors and ofcourse plus sizing will hence be a non-issue. As for getting into more gear for women...lets all get a conversation going about this and lets see what all you women want out there. I am open to ideas and yes I am looking into introducing a new jacket

You have no clue what you are getting yourself into here.

OK, I'll start...

I want EASY on/off Wet or Dry. Nothing like having to struggle out of wet gear when you are trying to use the bathroom.

I want arms long enough that my wrist feels secure under my glove.

I want a pocket on my lower sleeve so I can pull out money or store my drivers license for easy access. I ride LD and never have enough pockets to put things like baby wipes, extra power bars, ID etc,,, I rarely get off my bike when I ride. My point is that I want to be able to have easy acess to the things I need with out having to get off. Or in case I have a "get off" I have what I might need on me tell help arrives.

I want to be seen from space at night.

I want more but I have to get back to work...
