Any opinions on the best suit for 3.5 season of riding (I wear perforated leather when it is hot)? The only reason my bike stays in the garage is if there is ice or salt on the roads. Should I go with the PowerShell or Lombard? I ride a Concours 14 and it provides pretty good wind protection. I like the extra pockets and the looks on the Powershell but is the extra $300 worth it?

I recently purchased a used Lombard suit off of Ebay. Is there a way to tell which version of the suit it is? It turns out that it doesn't actually fit me well enough and I'll have to re-list it, but it would be nice to include the version of the Lombard. The seller that I bought it from didn't know.

Also, what size suit would you recommend for me in the Lombard?

I am 6'0" 200lbs
45" chest
36" waist
34.5" inseam

My proportions are a bit odd and I don't seem to match up well with any of the sizes you have listed. The suit I bought used was a XL-long. The length of the legs was good and so was the chest (well, the chest may have been a bit loose, but pretty close), but I felt like it was too wide in the waist and, most importantly, the elbow armor is too far down. The top of the elbow armor is at the bottom of my elbow, even when I bend my arms.

Thanks.

there are serious differences between the two in terms of the materials and protection.
if your budget allows, opt for the one that is #1 in protection :)

if the waterproof liner is not built in, then it should be v4 or newer.

we can make a custom suit based on the changed you would like so it fits perfect :)

It doesn't have a waterproof liner, but it does have a smaller, internal zipper (presumably for the liner?). So, V4?

I really wish this one fit, it seems like a great suit. When I have a bit more extra cash, I'll likely order a custom-sized suit.

As mentioned in the image posted earlier today, we now have lower prices across the board. As we start shipping directly from the factory to your door, we are passing on the savings to you. So visit our website to for almost 25% price reduction for several high-end suits - 50% reduction in international shipping rates. Best of all, now all items that are made-to-order will be shipped straight to you in just 15 days or less. Yes - that is a 75% reduction in our manufacturing time - down to 2 weeks from 8.

OK, let's sort this out.

Ghazi, how is this going to work? If I want a Power Shell in 2XL Tall (and I'm thinking about it), I order it from you and it gets drop shipped from Pakistan to Toronto? How much is the shipping? I also notice that while the price has come down, The liner is now a $100 extra. Not a problem as I wouldn't want a liner, but it should be noted that the suit has been de-contented.

Hello,
Shipping is now even lower than before - just $25.
De-contented: you guys wanted us to make it optional, so we made it optional!

Obviously a return customer discount would apply, which is roughly 5% of the purchase value from your last order.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks
