My almost two year old Lombard V3, last weekend at the BearWallow up in Alpine, Az. Next on my list is a Navagator 2 piece. Still looks as good as new.

Hi-Viz Mojave

Getting ready to head off in a Memorial Day Weekend jaunt to the NC mountains...wearing a Hi-Viz Mojave. I got many compliments on how nice the suit looks and questions on who-what-where...etc..

Sorry for the crummy cell-phone pic.

I've got about 1000 miles (mostly commuting, and a small amount of mild offroad) in my HiViz PowerShell. and it's still kicking ass ;)

For the offroad stuff, I was quite comfortable, it fit over my boots well, and I was able to move around with more than enough freedom to control the bike as needed.

For the commute in particular, the PowerShell's versatility shines - the venting, pockets and visibility are great - while I still "ride like I'm invisible" I'm pretty convinced that it makes me visible when I would otherwise not be.

One thing that I think might be an interesting addition to the next iteration - nonskid material similar to what's on the ass of the suit on the inside of the knees. In the wind, I find myself gripping the tank of my WeeStrom with my knees ( I grip the frame actually), and some sort of grippy stuff might be helpful.

When I get home from work every night, my 13 year old daughter proclaims "Nerd Alert! Nerd Alert!"

Power Shell Mini Review

In order to qualify for the "FREE LIFETIME Crashed Gear Replacement", I'm posting this mini-review. I bought the Power Shell Suit. I gave Ghazi my measurements and he sent me a loaner suit to try on. The suit he sent me fit good with the insulation that came with it(not a Power Shell Suit). I decided on the color of the suit I wanted and placed an order. About seven weeks later I received my suit.

The Power Shell fits me on the snug side with the supplied inner suit insulation. Nope, I haven't gained any weight since the order and I'm thinking since this suit is made from a different fabric, it may just be stiff and need to be broken in a bit(I'm hoping). I've been riding only a couple of times since the suit arrived so time will tell on the fit I guess.

Appears to me that the PS is a well made suit. I've never had a one piece suit before and I like how easy it is to put on and take off(I'll use it when I ride back and forth to work-when I get the service done on my bike). It ventilates well and I feel that in the worse case, I would be well protected in a fall.

I wish the pockets were bigger and that the suit had extra pockets on the outside thighs. If I was thinking when I had placed the order, I would have had the logo deleted. After a few more miles on this suit I will do a more extensive review.

In the below pics I'm wearing some thin sweat pants, one poly pro long underwear top, and a Powerlet heated jacket. It is a little cramped even with the adjustments on the suit let out:









Length seems to be okay, just wish I had about another inch in the torso area(I have short,thick legs and a long torso) and another inch around the legs.



Time will tell if I can live with this suit or not.

Pete
