Just wear some short cuff gloves and the arms should scoop in plenty of air.

Yes, I'm going to be looking for some short cuff gloves, but I don't want to loosen the wrists up too much and have the sleeves ride up on me in a crash (crap, knock on wood).

Like I mentioned in my previous post, none of it is a gripe and I also stated that it was 94F, which is already pretty hot.

These are first impressions to allow others the benefit of knowing how I felt the suit will do in the heat out of the box and to provide some constructive feedback to Ghazi, since he's constantly evolving his design to better it. As I said, it's a LOT of bang for the buck and even flows much better than suits at 3 times the price.

sweeeet!


Personally, i leave the cuffs open when i need some air. also, tighten the arms using the buttons and that should help you feel safer/snug in terms of arm material rising up

I had my Lombard v3 in 91F heat the other day. I was warm but comfortable and still had some tolerance to go higher. I had on khakis and a work shirt and was on my Ninja 650. I opened the cuffs since and it does work better. Thanks for the tip. I can't rip it off fast enough once I get home and stop moving though. Moving air is necessary.

So far it's great.

A few pics

Just a few action shots of me in my hi-viz Lombard V2. LOVE this suit. Also now have the V3 which I love even more! I didn't expect to be dragging my knee this day so I didn't have the Teiz pucks attached. Had to borrow some strap on pucks to keep from messing up the suit.





Also a couple of shots of me in my Mojave during a recent trip to NC/TN. It was the perfect suit for the temps and served me well for a day of dual-sport riding as well as the rest of the week on the roads on and around The Tail of the Dragon.





Thanks Ghazi for the great products and support!

I am so spoiled now by these 1-pc suits. I tried to wear my old Joe Rocket Phoenix 2.0 mesh 2-pc suit the other day and was not nearly as comfortable. Had to turn around, go home, ditch the Rocket and put on my Mojave!

One interesting point: Seems like you had to put the pucks pretty low on the Velcro area, right?

I'm looking to get some additional velcro to attach to the suit BELOW where it is currently. When the suit is on, the pucks end up too high -- up on my knees instead of below them where I need 'em:



(Look where my right knee puck is in the above pic!)

Actually, the pucks I'm using in that pic don't use the velcro on the suit, they wrap around your leg so you can position them anywhere you want.

Yeah, your pucks are too high. That won't work. You'll end up wearing thru the knee of the suit and never using the puck.

On my Lombard I'm able to position the Teiz's pucks low enough to work. That might be as much a function of my inseam (read, I'm short) as anything.

Ghazi might have some ideas for you, but you'll need to have the velcro lower if you want that to work. Or you can buy these like I was using:

and you'll also need these (or I guess you could use the Teiz pucks)

Pulled the trigger on a Lombard V3. At $249 how can I go wrong. Looks like it will serve me well during the cooler months.

I came pretty darn close myself yesterday, but I'm holding out for the two piece...

I saw 110F yesterday while wearing my Lombard 3. It was hot... uncomfortable even. But NOTHING is comfortable at that temp. And it wasn't as bad as I imagined it would be. And being that we went from fog on the coast in the 50's up to 110F. That's a pretty wide range. Though it's better at the 50F than at the 110

But since I was initially very concerned how I'd fare in warmer weather, I'm glad to say I did OK at 110F.

Give us the lowdown: What are the major improvements on the V4 over the V3?
