I got my Mojave yesterday, only a day after shipping info was sent.

I went for an hour ride and the Lombard doesn't even begin to compare to the airflow of the Mojave. The Mojave also weighs a lot less.

I like the fact that there are no pockets except for one chest pocket which is perfect for my little ear plug case.

I think the waterproof zippers are sort of silly and not as easy to operate as non-waterproof zippers.

The main zipper is good and it is easier to put the suit on than the Lombard just because there is no flap to fold over after zipping.

The legs feel less bulky and don't rub together as much as the Lombard legs do.

I do have some criticism -- mainly regarding the construction of both suits -- that I'll be offering to Ghazi soon.


All in all, I'm initially really happy with the Mojave. I wish it was a brighter color than grey, though.

How do I wash my Lombard?
Bath tub, cold water, elbow grease and some woolite?

Thx! It's drying now. Later I'm going to hang from a tree and hit it with some camp dry! That worked well for some other FF's.

Wow!

Left town Friday for a weekend of dirt bike riding in Mi. Got back last night and I had a package! Tried it on and its good! Too bad my street bikes in for warranty work and parts may take awhile. Will get to try it next weekend with borrowed parts for the bike if I have to. l8r

What are the chances you'd make an affordable riding suit for a 5'0", 92 pound Chinese girl?

My suit just came in today . All I've managed to do is ride to lunch and back with it, but it does seem to be cooler than the gear I had been using. I'm going to be doing about 150 miles tonight so I'll get a better idea then.

just got my new light gray Timoteo pants, slipped them on (step one: yank out the insulated & waterproof liners) slid on, fit perfect, removed suspenders and put them back in the bag, along with the sliders. knee armor has velco to hold the compartment together when the armor is removed, going to put some velcro on the armor itself to keep it higher in the compartment i think. it's fine in the riding position but sags a tick when on foot or standing on the pegs. pretty damn good for off-the-rack though. gonna bring it home and hose it with some waterpoof juice and put it into service with my high viz yellow Ventura jacket. finally some decent riding gear instead of odd ball miss matched clearance rack low end gear.

Thanks Ghazi!

Well I'm pushing 200 miles with the Mojave suit, and so far I'm liking it. Still trying to dial in the knee armor but I'm getting close.

The upper part flows air just as well as my mesh jacket, and still has more substantial armor than the jacket (First Gear Kilimanjaro Air). The leggings are wonderful compared to my non-vented riding pants.

The only thing I'm starting to miss on the suit is pockets. I have a tendency to carry odds and ends (lens wipes, flashlight, receipts, doodads in general).

As opposed to a 5'0" 92 pound canadian girl of course.

There's a thread in the equipment forum, girl looking for something like a women's size 3 w/ 36" inseam, which has me wondering.

just how crazy can you go with custom suit sizes? Would you be able to get into this sort of range?

same with me and the knee armor, just needs to be held up a little with some velcro, gonna go get some tonight.

time for a small tail bag, or a tank bag. i try to avoid carrying anything substantial on my person. i have a pair of small textile saddle bags i just throw everything in.

Women's line

So Ghazi...I saw a very nice write up in the BMW On magazine for May...In that article, it mentioned your team was developing a clothing line for women? Two piece textile, one piece suits, leather...what kind of stuff?? When will thoes items be available?? I'm asking cuz I just read the post from the very small woman that just posted, and although I'm happy with the suit, it could fit better...
