    I'll be waiting... I'm a 6' 50 year old with curves and am damn tired of trying to make men's clothes work on the bike. I have nice bikes and I want good protective gear.

    Bring it... and the women will come.

    Bless you,

    I can't wait to get one. As far as colors go, Deep Plum sounds peachy. My husband has his already and he loves it. It's been great in our upstate NY not-so-hot weather this spring. We have a trip planned for the Canadian Rockys and I'd love to rock a suite that fits.

    Will a loaner/trial size be available? My wife is concerned about the bust area (she has rather large tracks of land:evil).

    Thanks

    This suit is definitely looking fabulous!

    Question: What are those 2 button/snaps for located just above the knees? Is there where we get to attach tassels? :lol3 In the picture, I circled them in yellow. Oh, and the left leg looks super easy to get in/out of, but what about the right leg? Where is the zipper for that and how far up the leg will it go?

    Comments: although I know a lot of women don't like pockets in their suits, will these ones have any in the torso/chest? I love pockets. I am more of a function over form, but also don't want a lot of bulk.

    Glad to know you're putting protection in all the right places! Keep up the great work!

    Hi butterflymethane!

    the snaps above the knees are actually leg vents. this picture shows how they open up.

    The right leg opens up to the upper thigh. The zipper for that starts at the upper thigh and goes down to the ankle.

    As far as pockets go on the suit...there is a hidden chest pocket on the inner side of the front flap of the suit, and there are two pockets on the legs and a backpack pocket on the back of the suit (similar to the lombard)

    Are you ready to start taking orders? Do you have a sizing guide to complete so when you start we don't loose any time, riding season is upon us in the North!

    Are the aforementioned leg pockets the ones at the knee? I'm not sure I like a below knee pocket.

    Is the internal pocket waterproof (a dry pocket)? I'm not a fan of my iPod getting wet.:lol3

    Can we get a closer pic of the collar? I'm looking for both comfortable and capable of blocking out wind with use of a scarf or windbreaker (heated gear) and balaclava.

    What is the intended temperature range for this suit?

    Would you also consider reflective strips (not just piping) on the backs of the ankles? My Fieldsheer Highland II suit has that and I light up in low light and in the dark. Even in a grey suit, that is an incredible way to break up patterns and make yourself seen (or get the idiot behind you to disengage the auto-pilot and keep me safer).

    Though I'm not a fan of pink, baby blue, etc myself, I do like a bit of decorative stitching that may suggest this is a female rider. Might that be an option?

    BTW: I am very fond of a custom suit. I have had gastric bypass and even womens clothes do not fit my (deflated) shape well. I also find, unlike many women, though I am 5'6", I cannot get arms or legs long enough in much womens gear. I don't look like a freak, but most womens gear makes me feel like it. :bluduh

    Hello

    a) the pockets are on the thighs, not below the knee

    b) we will confirm on internal pocket being waterproof in the final specs of the suit

    c) the collar is super comfortable with a soft lining even in front of the throat. we will have close up pictures when the second prototype is available.

    d) Temperature ranges are always a personal thing because the threshold for cold/heat is different for everyone. This is intended to be a 4 season suit. Generally, it should be good enough for serious winter riding (with the Exkin thermal liner) but also work great in the summer due to the multiple vents. The waterproof liner will be removable to allow for better airflow.

    e) we will be using reflective strips rather than piping.

    f) the final design will be reflected in the next prototype

    -----

    Update: we are waiting for another prototype to be completed. Once that prototype arrives, we will have a better idea of availability and pricing. We hope to start taking orders in early/mid May.

    thanks

    :thumb Awesome. Thanks.

    Pardon me for clarifying here, is the liner thermal or waterproof? Is the suit waterproof without the liner?

    heyyyy! There are two liners on the suit and both are removable. One is a thermal liner and the other one is a waterproof liner.
