    How is the outside material of the Challenger?
    Is it soft like the old one or stiff and bulky?
    Better or worse?

    Does anyone have any detailed pics of the Challenger jacket?
    The BMG site does not have much for pics and when I asked the owner for better pics, I was referred to the web site which does not have much.

    Any close up pics of the liners or venting or anything would be great.

    Thanks in advance...

    I picked up my new Challenger jacket, Pioneer pants, and Thermosport gloves at the IMS show in Daytona and love everything so far. I will be doing a write up after a little use. Maybe a camparison to the Motoport mesh gear too.

    Paul gave me a great deal and it was a great experience.

    Any questions are welcome...

    I got a Montana jacket at the 2010 IMS show in Chicago. The guys this year seemed surprised at all the patches I had put on it, I think it looks even better with them!

    It's the most comfortable motorcycle jacket I've ever owned. I wish my Vanson pants were half as comfortable. Actually I really wish you guys would make matching Montana pants.

    Just ordered the "Adventure" tonight.
    Can't wait for it to come. I'll post up some pix and my opinion then.

    Thanks for the quick email response Paul.

    I got ahold of a Belstaff Knockhill a few weeks ago and love it. The jacket is absolutely amazing :D

    I also own a Zodiac jacket as my Mid-Temp jacket and think it is the Bee's Knee's for the money, it was my first jacket.

    I hope to get some rain gear soon and am looking at the pioneer and Ezeon pants, in addition to the gloves available.

    Seen the new website, looks great! I'm considering to buy the adventure suit, but i have a few questions;

    I live in the Netherlands, how much would the shipping costs be for a full suit?

    2nd, i see that the size chart is based on weight and length, the problem is that such size charts usually do not work for me as i have a different build than most people.

    My measurements are as follows:
    Shoulders 51 inch
    chest 45 inch
    Waist 34
    Neck 15 inch
    Forearms 13.5 inch
    Length 6"3
    Weight 215 pounds
    What size jacket would you recommend? (i thought either a XL or a XXL, but perhaps you could help :p ) Normal jacket size varies between a 58 (small size & a tiny bit too big) small and a BMW 54 (that would probably not fit with alot of layers underneath).

    as for the pants;
    Waist 34 inch
    Buttocks 43 inch (this is where some pants get too small for me, some jeans are a bit smaller in this area, i normally have a 36 size jeans, but if the jeans are small in that area i need a 38)
    Upper leg 25.5 inch
    Inseam 36-37
    (i normally wear 36/36 jeans with a belt to make them tight around the waist)

    If you could tell me what size i should approximately get that would be great. (i assume that changing the jacket/pants for another size is also possible in the case that they do not fit?)
    I thought i needed a xxl jacket and a 35/37 + 35/37 pants (both lenght and waist) but would like to know if how the pants fit around the buttocks and what you think about this choice.

    Hi Riggard,

    Sorry for the Slow response time.. On the road again. You would be a XXL in the adventure jacket and just order your regular length and inseam on the pants. They will have enough room in the Buttocks. On the last page befor you complete your order the web site will give you all the shipping options and prices too your postal code.

    Please e-mail your questions too sales@BritishMotorcycleGear.com and we will respond within the hour.

    We are now doing all our pants in Longer Inseam sizes as well as shorter ones. Adding quite a few new products as well from other European manufacturers that are not available in the USA. Will be at the NEC in November if anyone has suggestions for other products we should bring in let me know and I will have a meeting with them in Birmingham..

    Hey

    I wanted to see if anybody is familiar with Belstaff US sizing...?
    Normaly I'm size UK12 (M) but Belstaff jacket (ladies) fits me IT46, which is UK14.
    Found a jacket that I like (Owlet Pearl black jacket) on few American websites but their sizing is very confusing. They are using those named sizes (s m l xl 2xl) so I'm not sure which one of those sizes are equal to original Belstaff size IT46...
    Could someone pls help me with that?

    Tnx guys
    Jo

    Two options - the BMG Zodiac jacket and the BMG Adventure Jacket and Pants.

    I rode from Indianapolis to Utah and back again in September this year wearing the Adventure Jacket and Pants. It's was 104-106 deg across Kansas and Eastern Colorado and down to just above freezing at times in the mountains. The suit worked great in that range of temperatures with a Pertex windproof underneath when it was at the lower end.
