It looks like you have superfabric on the knees of the suit. I have superfabric on the heels of my held gloves and they have worn the paint of my bar ends. I would be worried that on the knees they would scratch the heck out of my tank.

If that is the same stuff that Klim uses in their super expensive Adventure pants, I have seen the major damage it can do to motorcycle plastics and paint in the knee area. Maybe this is a different fabric.

As per the product page , Klim is not using superfabric on the Adventure pants. However, SuperFabric is used on some high end Revit gear... Folks owning some of that equipment please free to comment...

The HiViz in these pictures and on your web page and in other pics of the suit I've seen don't look nearly as bright and intense as say Olympia's HiViz clothing. Is it just bad pictures or are some of the HiViz clothing much brighter than others?

^^^ That is interesting and I noticed it too. At least by the pictures, it is not as bright as my high-viz Olympia Phantom suit and jacket.

yes the one in the pictures is not as bright. we have changed the color since then to something brighter.
i will be uploading pictures of that very soon. the last few order for hi viz stuff should have been in that brighter color. There still is a difference that and colors used by other brands..

Myself, I'll take the brightest I can get. So far that's Olympia, it's almost blinding in the sunlight. I hope the new suits are alot closer to that color.

We havnt had any complaints about the colors and feedback has been very positive... including the recent photos i posted which came with these comments:

I went on a 5 day 1,250 mile motorcycle trip around Colorado last week. Rode the twistiest and best roads in Colorado with my Lombard. It rained for part of each day, some days with temperatures down into the mid-40's. The Lombard did great, and all the other members of my group kept saying how visible I was in low-light and rainy rides. Attached are a few pictures. Feel free to use them on your page or in marketing materials.

Alcatraz & DIego suits have been updated:
  • Fabric panels behind elbows and knees for a more comfortable fit (makes a huge difference when you are actually on the bike with your arms and legs bent)
  • Improved cuff design for increased comfort


The cuff:


The back of the elbows:


The back of the knees:
