why are there waterproof zippers on the sleeve cuffs. or zippers at all. isnt the velcro enough.not a gripe just seemed odd. having to open velcro then a zipper as well. to fit my gloves.

Ghazi,
Got my suit yesterday. Fits perfectly other than maybe "slightly" long in the leg (but I've gotten used to that with most clothes, at my less-than-imposing stature). Thanks for the fast shipping, and kudos for great customer service (last minute switch of shipping address from FL to NY without issue).

Also, removed all the little cloth zipper pulls - dang there were a ton of them.

Only question: Why no flaps over the side pocket access zippers?

Will post a pic or two tomorrow.

~Anthony

sizing issues... no!

For those of you that have sizing issues, like me keep reading.

I'm 6'3", 180lb. long in the limbs and slim all over. Most stuff just does not "fit". I ordered the medium, had it shipped, wore it around the house a bit (and on and off the bike, and taking suit off and on, several times) to make sure it fit well, except the limbs of course. Then I sat on the bike and measured what I wanted to add.

If you dont know, its only $50 to change a measurement, so I had to spend a little for shipping cost, and an extra $100 to lengthen the arms by 2" and legs by 4". The way he has the padding set up there should not be any issues with the location of the elbow and knee pads. So I go to try the suit on, thought it was a great fit (except, well you know), spend a little extra and am looking forward to delivery.

I'll post up once I have some use... especially if I really love it, or I really hate it, otherwise it was worth the cash for sure or I'd be compelled to post.

I agree with the neck issue. I got my suit and that's the only complant I have, you'll need to extend the collar tab by 2 inches. Or you could provide a extension with buttons on the ends to help us guys out? just an ideal. As for me, I'll have my wife make an alteration to my suit. It make more sense than asking for a correction.

My ride today was great, temp this morning was 41 Degrees F and I was not cold, but cool. My ride home was good too, temp was about 60 degress F and I felt a little warm, but over all a good ride home (28 miles).
