heated jacket liner

Ta, Ironmanracing. I appreciate the feedback. Sounds like the jacket is a quality garment. I especially like the fact the controller is digital. If I understand that right, the current draw will be proportional to the setting. My grips have such a controller and you can see the system cycle on/off by looking at the voltmeter. High settings= long periods of "on" as opposed to a variable resister set up, which I think does not result in any less current draw, no matter the setting. A digital controller must surely be a good thing on an ol' Airhead.

accurate height?

Hi all, longtime lurker here. Big thanks to all that posted their measurements and comments (second time I'm buying gear based 90% on advrider threads, it really helps).

Thinking of buying a Lombard suit to replace all my other textile gear, but still stuck on sizing, as usual...

Height: Just over 6'
Weight: about 170lb
Chest: about 39-40" (all my jackets are loose 40-42 and a mix of M and L)
Waist: 32-33"
Inseam: 32" to the ankle bone (almost all my pants/jeans are 32" actual)
Torso: 30-31.5" (depending on whether I measure just straight down or also under, but definitely less than 32")

All taken over a shirt/jeans, not too tight. For reference, my Tourmaster overpants were M-Tall, 33.5" inseam, and they were just a bit too long (in addition to being baggy - 32-34" waist...)

L seems to be the best choice for all but the height. It sounds like XL would have a TON of slack in the waist, and too long overall. Not planning to wear much underneath, so I'd prefer a tighter-fitting suit.

Any advice? Should I ignore the height and just go with the L?

Will the Mojave and/or Sonoran (textile mesh stuff) be in stock in the near future, or are they more or less permanently made to order?

Important!

If you have requested some parts as part of warranty and not received them, please email me at support@teizms.com and i will send the required parts again. It seems like USPS is not very reliable

Of all the reasons for a delay in shipping, that's probably the most awesome.

Your order has been delayed due to frickin' VOLCANOES.

Any estimates?

Hi,
Start with the L. If it ends up being short then we will swap it with a tall one.
Thanks

Just wanted to add a quick review. I've ridden through the Winter and now into the Spring in the Lombard suit and it's been excellent. I have no complaints at all.

I've ridden in temperatures as low as 20F, and mostly temps in the Mid 30's, and I was not cold at all (with a zip-up fleece under the suit). I have ridden in the rain (though not any very heavy rain yet) and did not have any water intrusion through the vents, seams, or main zipper at all. I assume a longer ride, or heavier rain, and some water will probably find its way in. (Keep in mind I'm on a Yamaha XT225 - a small bike with no wind protection.)

The suit is also holding up very well. All of the seams, zippers, straps, reflective material, and velcro are in top shape. There is just some minor fraying on the wrist adjustment straps which are a differnt material from the rest of the suit.

I haven't really used the suit any warm weather. The warmest was around 70 degrees - I left the thermal liner in and opened the chest vents, and it was just a little warm. I think without the liner it would be great in warm weather.

1-pc suit storage

I installed a Givi V46 top case on Bandit today for the express purpose of stowing my Lombard or Mojave when I'm out and about. I was pretty sure it would fit but wasn't sure. Givi makes bigger top cases but I didn't want to go any bigger than the v46, so fingers crossed.

Here is the V46 newly installed...


And here is my Lombard ready to go...


I roll it up tight starting at the neck and working my way toward the legs. It fits pretty nice in the V46, but you can't really get anything else in there...maybe a pair of gloves, but not much more.


The v46 closes and locks just fine with the Lombard inside. I had to practice a couple of times rolling the suit up to get it so that it would fit.



Any chance that I'm doing any damage to my Lombard or Mojave by storing them this way? It sure will make it convenient to stow my suit like this while I'm off the bike enjoying the scenery.
