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.

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.
