I am also curious about the mesh vs lycra. My current suit is nylon mesh, it has held up very well but its rough against the skin so I have always worn a lycra compression shirt under it (nike hot season gear). Helps reduce chaffing but adding an extra layer in the summer is not ideal.

Hello,

For summer riding, those that are worried about heat should look into an evaporative cooling vest. As a motocross rider, I just drench myself between sessions. When it's over 100 degrees, I'm in good spirits because I'm air conditioned while riding. When the water evaporates, I just hit the hose again.
Street riders don't have it as easy, or dual-sport guys, or adv riders for that matter, that's where the evaporative cooling vest comes into play. My cooling vest is simply a t-shirt but anyone looking for a more comprehensive solution should look into a cooling vest.

Both materials are easy to clean, the lycra would probably hold the odor easier/longer. Personally, an undershirt/cooling vest is mandatory with either material in my opinion. You can wear the lycra without an underlayer but I'm not a fan. The mesh requires an underlayer to reduce chaffing..

Yes sir! We're working with a new supplier and our first order a month ago was on the tight side for larger sizes. Between the mesh and lycra and revised sizing, I think we'll be good for almost any size...

Also I had the longer piece attached to the kidney belt, is this still an option or needed?
The chest is now 1 solid piece of plastic and covers more area.

We're using a longer jacket pattern and have a recommendation for the velcro tabs. I think anyone with this question will need to call me for an explanation after the suit is received OR until I can get photos or instructions. The problem you encountered is no longer an issue..

It's on the list of "things" and has been for a while. Having a new supplier will make product development much easier, so 2014 should see a product for that category..

Anything you would want to see in lowers specifically? Plastic, foam or a combination thereof..

Shorts or pants? I've always thought shorts would be preferred to pants, in terms of ease of use and durability over time.
I've had samples made in the past of both, I preferred the shorts and still use them..

For more road riding, pants would be better. Than you could get in knee protection without wearing knee pads, and lower cut boots are the norm.

However, (at least in my case) dual sport riders are probably already wearing MX style boots and with some sort of knee protection. So, shorts would be better.

With regards to foam/plastic, for some reason I think hard plastic makes more sense for the upper body than the lower body. I'd prefer to see foam padding on hips, quads, etc. I feel it would be more comfortable and user friendly. I could be wrong though.

noted!! The only place I could see any plastic would be on the thighs.. We'll see..
