Hi Ghazi I got your message yesterday - thanks for the call - such great service! Anyway, for some reason, I'm unable to call you back (I keep getting a message saying that the Teiz number is 'outside my calling area'), but wanted to let you know that I don't currently have any questions about my order. If I do, I'll be sure to get in touch

My suit arrived today!! Coincidentally, the ice in my driveway is nearly melted. With a little luck, I'll be back on two wheels in a week or so

But the suit! I love it!!! Can't wait to ride-test it :) Here are the photos I had my husband take. For reference, I'm 5'9" and decidedly on the curvy side of things. I was a little worried that the ivory might make me look like a marshmallow, but the black side panels really are slimming. First impressions are that the suit is really comfortable and well-made. I had trouble getting into it at first - I've never had a once piece suit (oversuit or other), and so I felt like I didn't know how to get dressed, but I'm sure I'll get the method down before too long

I'll have to share a photo of me on the bike in the suit once the bikes are out of the living room (yes, they're in the living room...you can see them behind me)!



My husband used the flash on this one to show the reflective taping

Looks great, AKLiz. It might even help me convince my lady that a suit is a good option... eventually!

Just received this feedback

"I've worn my Revolution one piece suit quite a few times now. The day I received my suit, it was 30degrees so I took a ride to test the warmth and was comfortable with both liners in place. I've also worn it in temperatures of 80 degrees and find that with all the vents open, the suit really moves some air. It has good reflective material. The suit is very comfortable when riding. I ride an F800ST BMW and find that the suit is comfortable for an all day ride. I love the Mango color as people tell me how visible I am. My husband has the Lombard and he wears it daily as he rides to work."

If competing brands are now looking to introduce womens specific one piece suits, you know who to thank for getting this started and letting women know they deserve better than a size smaller man-suit. But one thing i dont understand, did 80% of the women suddenly stop fitting into those mens-size suits as previously claimed??? Well you know how its going to work out when thats the background of their understanding of women sizing :) We will not be introducing any "standard" sizes for womens clothing - all our womens gear will continue to be made 100% custom.

My wife received her new Revolution one piece suit and you've made me look like a hero! The fit is perfect and she loves it. At 5' 2" with a 26 " inseam, we had almost given up on finding a suit that fit her. She received it at her office and immediately had to try it on and model it for all her co-workers who were all very impressed as well. We've been able to slip a couple of rides in between rain showers and the venting keeps her cool when she needs it and seals up nicely when she doesn't. The quality and value are outstanding and she loves the ease of slipping out of it when she needs to. We have a 10 day trip planned for July we're looking forward to racking up some serious mileage under (hopefully!) hot conditions to give it a real workout. Thanks again for a job well done!

I'm looking at the pics and I'm really impressed due to the lack of puckering around the thighs.

You are going to simply love the Sas-Tec armor we offer. it's flexible yet extremely protective.
Additionally, a correct fit is guaranteed. so need not worry. Check you inbox for a liner picture.
How about you post pics of the liners right here so everyone in this discussion can see and I wouldn't mind hearing the answer to the question how easy it is to put on the liners? Maybe I missed it, but it seems you skipped over that question. Apologies if I didn't see the forest for the trees, I just read the entire thread in one sitting...if you did answer or the pics of the liners are posted here already, I'd love to see them (can you point me to them?)! Thanks!

would love to see those pics...but I suspect as with any gear, especially a one piece that isn't waterproof on the outside, this will be the achilles heel of the otherwise great looking suit.

Just thinking of the contortions I have to twist my body into to try and get into or out of a waterproof liner is painful, especially after wearing it for a while and getting damp and clammy, with moisture building up on the inside since rain liners tend to not breathe whatsoever and cling to whatever you're wearing underneath.
I was hoping to be proven wrong with some great innovative idea since the rest of the suit looks fantastic-but I guess there's no pics after all, leaving me to think it's just another plastic rain suit like the rest of them.

In which case, I'll most definitely stick to what I've found to work best for me-rainproof goretex layer on the outside, roomy enough to wear as an overpant/jacket with lots of vents so it's still perfectly useably during summer even if I sacrifice the sexy looks, I'd rather be protected well and functional (including easy bathroom access which is not easy when having to peel off a sticky, clingy rain liner).

Too bad, this had promise. I'll stick to my current gear. It was pricey too (but so is the Teiz suit, so that's a break even), but it breathes, has super armor and is good year around.

Never hurts to keep an eye open for new and improved gear, but without a waterproof outer layer or some great new revelation about this liner (which still leaves the issue of being super cold and heavy when the outer layer gets soaked with rain), I'd rather sacrifice form for function. JMHO
