I understand the Power Shell will not be waterproof, as that feature will come from the optionally purchased liner. Will any of the pockets on the shell be waterproof though so a wallet or phone can be stored in/on the suit and safe in the event of a shower. I don't mind sitting on my wallet on the bike, but normally put my phone in a suit pocket so I can get to it easier and since it does not bend so well.

the arrows on the arms and other areas are actually (extremely) reflective stripes

Looks nice.

Any plans for a shorter jacket as an option? 3/4 length jackets don't work so well for sportier bikes...

The Navigator 2 pc suit and Power Shell will be quite customizable. You can mix and match liners. For example, if you already have an external rain suit, or prefer one, you can skip the optional waterproof liner. Otherwise, we can add a waterproof liner to your order. Same with the thermal liner.


Rodan: A shorter length jacket is not on the roadmap right now.However, we work with you to make this one more suitable for your purpose, for example get a 2 way zipper, that would allow you to open up the jacket from the bottom making it very comfortable on the sportbike.

Ghazi,

I've bought 3 suits from you over the last couple of years (1st gen mesh, a Lombard and an Alcatraz with all the bells & whistles) and they are great, however as I mentioned when you posted some prototypes shots of the new gear a few months back, I am not a fan (and there are many others like me) of the billboard-like proportions of the logos on the new suits. You said you would think about it, but looks like you decided to go big after all! The new stuff looks like it has some great features, but I think it's spoiled by over branding. I'm sorry to say that I'm going to be passing on this new generation of gear and hope that you go back to a more subtle branding for future gear.
