This may have been answered elsewhere, but how does the Powershell do in high temps. 100F/40C and above?

Anyone have an opinion on whether or not the lower legs of the lombard will fit over Sidi Crossfires?

I've been commuting in mine in the 90's - with the vents open and the front flap open, it's quite comfortable at speed. Keep in mind that it *is not* a mesh suit, so there's just so much you can expect.

Damn, that looks like one heck of a good fit. I got my Mojave but it's at my parent's house, I'll see it in a couple weeks. I think I'm wearing the trusty Lombard.

Well I have had my Mojave suit for about a month now and I have to say I still love it.
I have ridden in quite a range of temps from about 34 degree to 91 degrees now and it has worked flawlessly at all points.
I still can't believe how comfortable it is when on the bike, you really don't feel the weight of it when riding.
I have gotten quite a few compliments on my suit, and it is so much nicer when getting ready in the morning or just for a quick trip down to the store to just throw the suit on.

I have had to do some training and teaching in the suit and I have to say it's no problems moving around in the suit at all.
Even at 90 degrees it's really not too bad when not moving, plus as soon as you start to move you cool right back down.

I do wish it had a pocket on the inside for my music, but I just use the chest pocket and leave the cable outside the suit, it would just be nicer to run it out the collar or through an eyelit.
Quality is top notch, it feels much more durable that my old mesh separates that no longer fit.
Sizing could be a little better for me, but I didn't want to go the cutom route so I went with the closest thing, so I cannot complain, I am one of those people with a shorter inseam and a longer torso, but overall I still really like the suit.

One of these days I will actually do an official review, but I just haven't had the time yet, teaching too many weekends, I have another 2 classes and a retest this weekend to do.
But for anyone on the fence about getting a suit from Teiz... rest assured you will be happy....
Ghazi where is my hanger lol... I know he is on his trip.

Here are just a couple of pics, still haven't gone out to take any myself.
