    Wish list you ask?

    No need for thermal liners. I wear my own primaloft jacket under my jacket. For the pants section it might be nice, but my winter pants are usually warm enough (albeit for a short commute). If touring, I wear wool long underwear and fleece leggings over it so I don't need the pants liner.

    If the exterior can't be waterproof, I don't want waterproof liners. I wear a rainsuit over the jacket and pants. I hate a wet, soggy jacket.

    So save the expense and let me use my own clothes for thermal and rain solutions.

    I like that you're going to do custom sizes. No one makes tall pants for women off the rack. No one. They may think they do...

    Can't wait to see the finished product!

    You are exactly right. They don't. I am between tall and average, and on my motorcycle once in the saddle, the need for tall becomes apparent. I'm 5'6" I should not be a 'tall'. Of course don't get me started on the arm length or how women's gear sizes. :bluduh I recently saw a suit that was labeled with a size 6. My 14 year old daughter wears size 3 pants, is nearly my height and weighs about 120 pounds. She couldn't have gotten that suit on two years ago. Six my hiney. :1drink Custom is awesome.

    Ugh - don't get me started on "tall".... I have come to expect that for everything I buy off the shelf I'm going to hand over to my seamstress to immediately add 4" to the legs. Really sucks when you alter new "waterproof" pants only to find out that they're not waterproof :cry

    The suit now has a name: Revolution.

    Please excuse the not so great pictures because they were taken at home just to get you the info asap. Most of the details are final on the suit except for one thing: it does not show the SuperFabric on it yet. The final version of the suits will have SuperFabric ballistics!

    Great job.

    I used to have a ski suit that had a moon shaped zip around your backside for easy "relief". Also how bout a full round zip off & on jacket so when you go in for lunch you don't have to tie the arms around your waist or totally strip off the suit.

    All in all I like it!!!

    Well there is no comparison.. totally different product.Lets see

    the materials and components are quite different-- including but not limited to Super Fabric ballistics, a new shell construction, Sas-Tec armor (including back protector for which everyone charges an extra $45 to $100), an amazing thermal liner, a full rain suit etc... Then you have the FULL custom sizing which obviously doubles our costs..... Now add the amazing warranty, service and support that you will get and multiply with the satisfaction of something that actually fits in a color of your choice. Not to mention that we all know the quantities for this suit will obviously be less than those of the mens suits.... i think you end up with an extremely fair price which I think is not even expensive ---

    How much do does it cost to buy a high end pair of jackets and pants? What would you have to pay to them to get them custom made to your size. Why don't they even include a proper back protector at that price...

    i guess you will start to see that its actually a very very good price for what we are offering.
