    Yeah...the sizes don't quite run high enough. But I am quite used to getting something to fit my shoulders and then being able to put a full rucksack into the stomach area. I don't need bags with some of this damn gear, I can just stuff the front of my jacket.

    Not to mention the crotch at the knees syndrome. <sigh> whine whine...bitch bitch.... :rofl

    Guys, here are some pics that Ghazi sent me. They are also up on the website now. I asked him to try getting some hi viz pics for me to post. Personally, I never thought anyone would get me into a 'onesie' but this suit looks promising. In the last pic you can see he has some color samples...

    There are a lot of things I like about this suit. It seems well thought out. It also looks very adjustable to suit a wide range of sizes (unless you're needing big guy sizes I guess). I have a really hard time finding gear with long skinny arms and legs, and a torso that is long but not fat. I like the amount of reflective strips used, and the styling ain't bad either! I am glad to see in the last pic the neck looks to use velcro and looks like it will accomodate larger necks or smaller ones like mine.

    Anyway, I am not affiliated with this company, just helping someone out who looks to be making a nice product with an attractive pricepoint for a change. I mean, I like Rev'It but $1400!!! C'mon! :norton

    Orange cannot be HI-VIZ it can be florescent but it will still lack the visual effects or HI-VIZ and just blend into the background with all other colors. But I sure the manufacturer will be glad to sell you any color you want.

    I'm down for a summer suit.....
    -- IF --
    they can fit a 5' 2" bowling ball.

    I wear a black leather "biker" jacket that I found in a size 54 Short, and Johnson's Leathers overpants with it's knee armour at my ankles......

    I don't know if it was worst being a youngster at 5' 2" & 120 pounds having to buy women's leather jackets and childrens shoes, or an old fat 5' 2" unable to fit ANYTHING except Carharts overalls......

    At a dealer show a year or two ago, I ran into an Olympia rep. He told me that about half of their Olympia Phantom suits were sold in the dayglo neon green color. I know that up here in the gloomy Pacific NW, I see a significant percentage of motorcyclists and bicyclists (I am a bicyclist too) who wear fluorescent colored clothing for visibility. I figure that anything reasonable I can do to stack the odds in my favor is a good thing.

    I was really interested in one of these suit until I saw the size chart. I'll admit I'm a little over weight, but I'd never think that having a 36" waist and 48" chest would put me in a position where I was so "huge" I wouldn't fit in a 3XL.:huh

    Once I can see pics of the colours (so I can discern if I want the Hi Viz Yellow or light Green), as I want tit to match my neon Scorpion helmet, then I'd like to buy one of these.

    I too would like to see some neon tits to match my helmet, but some things you just can't ask for in a public forum. :lol3

    The knee pucks aren't doing it for me - they seem totally out of place in a suit like this.

    Thought you guys would like to know that Ghazi has made a forum on the website, and it includes an entire section on sizing. I popped over to the site this morning to see if any news or new pics were up and noticed it. :thumb

    Exactly. At $289, that's an example of where the priority lies in designing a suit like this. Bling before safety. I'll duck as the cannonballs are sent over the bow

    How do you figure? It has knee pucks, knee pads, shin pads, shoulder pads, elbow pads, double stitching, 8 different reflective panels, and a 600 denier cordura shell with 1680 denier in the high impact zones. Yup, sounds like a lot of bling all right. :D

    Hell, I owned a Rev'It Cayenne at over $450 and had to purchase a back protector separately. :norton
