    Forget that last post about the Zodiac's not being in stock yet.. I just got a call from USA Customs and they will clear in the morning.. So if you want the new Zodiac jackets with all the reflective piping they are in stock now.

    Thanks

    Hi Paul,

    I'm interested in the new Zodiacs you have coming out, but I'm a little confused on which size chart/menu to follow. For the Zodiac under size: "large" is shown as 41-43. However, under the BMG size chart for jackets it says a large is 42-44. (which is what I'm looking for). And it works for my height and weight being 6'3 and around (a slim) 180 lbs.
    What might you suggest?

    The Zodiac Jacket is cut a little smaller than the rest of the line, that is why it is off by an inch from the regular size chart... At your size you would be a Large in everything but the Zodiac which would move you up to an XL.

    Hope that helps..

    WRT the Adventure pants ... are they going to be over boot or in boot? Or both?

    Thanks again for a great product Paul :clap

    Paul, if you're still looking for pics for your website, here is one. Taken this weekend at Rocky Mountain National Park. There are more of her in the jacket, but most of them were taken on the 'low' quality setting...grrrrr....

    Good :thumb

    Personally, I won't be putting them inside my boot but if that option exists for people that prefer to do it that way then so much the better.

    I you will indulge me Paul, here is a (small) list of personal requirements (some more important than others but I won't list them in order of priority):

    Match the jacket in style and colo(u)r
    Vents a'plenty
    Ability to put on with boots on - side zips to the knees or just above mebbe ?
    Separate waterproof liner (inside or outside pants) perhaps ?
    Ability to tighten/cinch down bottom of pants so they aren't flapping int he wind too much
    Cargo type pocket(s)

    I'm sure there are things I have missed and others will want other features but I figured I would chime in.

    Thanks Mercury264... I will put the list in with the Adventure pants design we have and we will look at possible design changes that we can implement..

    Thanks for your suggestions...

    +1

    Plus, I'd add:

    -reflective panels/piping on sides.
    -I'd love a dark grey color instead of the standard black, but that just might be me.

    Cheers!

    Def no black - or at least an option (or options) other than black.

    Reflective panels - excellent point.

    I hate to say it....the Beemer suits looks pretty good to me. I just have not drunk enough :bert to warrant paying the outragous prices people seem prepared to pay for their gear simply to have the coveted roundel on the shoulder :D

    DG,

    Any plans to make the adventure jacket in a Hi-Viz? I tried it on at the Chicago motorcycle show and loved it but I've got this whole bright clothes, get home, commute thing going on.


    Please.

    BTW I love my old mercury jacket. HOT as hell in the summer but the rest of the year it is fantastic.

    We are looking at doing them in grey to match the jacket, but have to wait and see what colors are available from the fabric manufacturers at that time.. Adventurer Jacket has reflective piping on it, we have no plans for the HI-VIS color on the Jackets themselves.. We will be putting more reflective material on the pants... Thanks again for all your suggestions..

    A light grey or even the off-white of the jacket yoke and front placket would be good, Paul. As you'll know, the original Adventure Pants were black. I was pretty hot in mine, riding in the Bay Area, last weekend.

    See my PM about my pants.

    Hi Paul,

    Just have another question regarding online order shipments.

    For those of us NOT in the U.S. (ie. Canada) and not "able to track international orders through foreign customs" with ups, is it possible to receive an email confirmation, perhaps, that our orders have atleast been sent out and on the way? Seeing as we supply our email addy, etc when we order? The "thank you for ordering" email is good, but like it says, expect order to arrive in 5-10 business days. I'm just eager to receive my new jacket...:smile6

    thanks,
    Russ

    Hi Russ,

    We can do that no problem.. We ship everything International with USPS for the following reason.. We found out that DHL Federal Express and all other shippers get a percentage of Import duties and charges.. That means that they want you to get nailed with the maximum duties since they get a percentage.. When we ship Postal Service they hand it to the Local Postal Service and deliver it to your door.. We check gift on the customs document since all of our customers are always buying themselves nice gifts for riding and it goes through with no extra charges.. They cannot track it after it leaves the USA but it is insured.. We just found out that if you pick the Express Mail option it can now be tracked..
    I will e-mail you your tracking information.. We ship everthing out the same day we get the order as long as we get it before Noon, if not it goes out the next day...

    Thanks for your Order..
