Great job.

I used to have a ski suit that had a moon shaped zip around your backside for easy "relief". Also how bout a full round zip off & on jacket so when you go in for lunch you don't have to tie the arms around your waist or totally strip off the suit.

All in all I like it!!!

Procedure is exactly same as shown here, with one difference: the mesh inner is much higher quality so the process is much smoother (less snagging by the shoes) ...

Question

Was thinking of getting one for my wife but then I saw the price! Why so much more expensive than the men's suit? You're up in the other guys range.

Well there is no comparison.. totally different product.Lets see

the materials and components are quite different-- including but not limited to Super Fabric ballistics, a new shell construction, Sas-Tec armor (including back protector for which everyone charges an extra $45 to $100), an amazing thermal liner, a full rain suit etc... Then you have the FULL custom sizing which obviously doubles our costs..... Now add the amazing warranty, service and support that you will get and multiply with the satisfaction of something that actually fits in a color of your choice. Not to mention that we all know the quantities for this suit will obviously be less than those of the mens suits.... i think you end up with an extremely fair price which I think is not even expensive ---

How much do does it cost to buy a high end pair of jackets and pants? What would you have to pay to them to get them custom made to your size. Why don't they even include a proper back protector at that price...

i guess you will start to see that its actually a very very good price for what we are offering.

I agree, i think that the price is reasonable.

I would be interested in getting some color swatches. Since it is full custom we can mix/match right?

Also a video of a WOMAN putting the suit on AND off would help.

And a video of how to take measurements accurately. ;)

This suit is nice and I would love to be able to have one, but the reality is I could have a man's suit modified for less or stay with my $199 Highland II suit. I would like something other than grey and a better fit would be nice, but not $700 worth until I find myself in a higher income bracket.

Yea, I can't justify spending 900 on a suit for my gf when I wouldn't spend that on myself. I also like my V3 and was hoping for similar pricing/quality.

Yeah, I'm disappointed at the price as well. Granted, I spent that much when I bought my stitch (I don't have too much in the way of "girly parts" to deal with and was able to get a really good fit) but I think that the market could have done with a slightly lower price point

That being said, I am sure that there are quite a few women riders out there (like Bluepoof) who are hovering their mouse over the "order now!" button

I had my leather pants and jacket all picked out ($798 off the rack) and came back here to check status on this. I agree that it's very fairly priced for all that you get. And now the debate is on! And your suit is winning at the moment! Waiting to see those color swatches (won't load right now) for the final decision.
