    Just a few action shots of me in my hi-viz Lombard V2. LOVE this suit. Also now have the V3 which I love even more! I didn't expect to be dragging my knee this day so I didn't have the Teiz pucks attached. Had to borrow some strap on pucks to keep from messing up the suit.

    Also a couple of shots of me in my Mojave during a recent trip to NC/TN. It was the perfect suit for the temps and served me well for a day of dual-sport riding as well as the rest of the week on the roads on and around The Tail of the Dragon.

    Thanks Ghazi for the great products and support!

    I am so spoiled now by these 1-pc suits. I tried to wear my old Joe Rocket Phoenix 2.0 mesh 2-pc suit the other day and was not nearly as comfortable. Had to turn around, go home, ditch the Rocket and put on my Mojave!

    One interesting point: Seems like you had to put the pucks pretty low on the Velcro area, right?

    I'm looking to get some additional velcro to attach to the suit BELOW where it is currently. When the suit is on, the pucks end up too high -- up on my knees instead of below them where I need 'em:

    (Look where my right knee puck is in the above pic!)

    Actually, the pucks I'm using in that pic don't use the velcro on the suit, they wrap around your leg so you can position them anywhere you want.

    Yeah, your pucks are too high. That won't work. You'll end up wearing thru the knee of the suit and never using the puck.

    On my Lombard I'm able to position the Teiz's pucks low enough to work. That might be as much a function of my inseam (read, I'm short) as anything.

    Ghazi might have some ideas for you, but you'll need to have the velcro lower if you want that to work. Or you can buy these like I was using:

    and you'll also need these (or I guess you could use the Teiz pucks)

    Pulled the trigger on a Lombard V3. At $249 how can I go wrong. Looks like it will serve me well during the cooler months.

    I saw 110F yesterday while wearing my Lombard 3. It was hot... uncomfortable even. But NOTHING is comfortable at that temp. And it wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be. And being that we went from fog on the coast in the 50's up to 110F. That's a pretty wide range. Though it's better at the 50F than at the 110 :D

    But since I was initially very concerned how I'd fare in warmer weather, I'm glad to say I did OK at 110F.

    Give us the lowdown: What are the major improvements on the V4 over the V3?

    The main changes are:

    a) The new liner system with removable waterproof and thermal liners, similar to the Mojave 2. This improves on the waterproofing of the suit, also making the suit more versatile. When the the liners are out, the suit is light and more airy. You can wear the suit in multiple ways:

    • Scorching summer temperatures? Just wear the base shell and open up all those vents
    • Rain storm in the forecast? Add the waterproof liner!
    • Temperatures dropping due to the cold rain? Also zip in the thermal liner.
    • A cold ride with no rain? How about just the thermal liner zipped in to the shell?

    b) We have updated the cuffs of the suit. This new design, again similar to the updated Mojave 2 is a lot more comfortable

    c) We have updated the grippy seat design. The back of the suit is now way more aesthetically pleasing than the previous generation suits.

    The price is still $399. We can ship in 4 weeks from the day you confirm your order/size/payment.


    If you are not too concerned with waterproofing, the previous V3 suits on closeout offer a pretty good opportunity to save. Though the size M & L are sold out, we do have some sizes S,XL & 2XL in stock.

    Ghazi, isn't this the description of the new Mojave 2? Grabbed it off your website. Also, do you have any 3XL or 4 XL Lombards in for sizing purposes yet or would I just order one or the other and if it doesn't fit exchange it? Thanks, Jack

    LOL yes i forgot to the change the word "mesh" ... The concept of the removable liner is same, layer up or down according to the weather.
    The only 3XL & 4XL suits i have are the trials. We send them out to customers for confirming sizes. I can send those to you as well.

    I'm surprised Hi Viz isn't an option on the power shell.:eek1 The top of the line safety gear should use the best safety colors if wanted as an option. :deal Oh yeah Ghazi, PMed you!

    I'd like to see a predominately black suit with high viz sections on the arms..shoulders and back. Added visibility but not so hard to keep clean etc.

    Ghazi,

    I can't be the only one wondering. What suit did you wear on your trip to Mexico and how was it.

    I know you are not one to blow your own horn so to speak but you can at least let us know what suit you took.

    Mexico:
    I took the Mojave 2. Without any liners and Frogg Toggs as a rain backup (too much honesty?). Honestly, the weather couldn't have been better except running into what must have been the Arlene storm on the way back. Dallas to San Antonio started off very well due to a lot of rain the previous night. As we approached Austin, the temps rose significantly and Mojave performed well. In the 75-90 degree range, the suit works really well. Above 95, its the whole insulation vs. air flow debate ( which i dont care to start off right now). Within Mexico, the temperatures were very comfortable. On the way back, it was a severe rain storm all the way from Monterrey to Laredo - just 150 miles but it took quite a toll on us. Apart form the usual stuff, i have to say this, the Forma boots "kicked" (lol) butt.. I think i would have been fine with the Lombard as well, esp within Mexico. Anything is a pain in 100+ Texas summers- you just gotta choose what makes you less uncomfortable.

    Power Shell:

    Hi Viz. Dupont Cordura is currently not readily available in the open market. We would have to import it ourselves but that is like committing to at least a few hundred hi viz. suits. If enough of you folks want it, we can go ahead and import it but like I said, has to be a good amount of people willing to commit a hundred percent.

    We have three or four colors available. The pictures shown earlier were of the multi-tone suit. We will take also accept orders for single colored suits - black, blue, red, light gray.

    Got to see the initial prototypes of our new Navigator 2 piece suit. Its based on the Power Shell (so think Cordura, SuperFabric, Sas-Tec) with similar color schemes. Pics coming soon
