I think that, in general, it wouldn't be a good idea - concentrate on those things that build sales & profit. If you see demand for it and you're not totally tapped out with all your other tasks, maybe start with a layaway-lite system, for example rather than taking 100% of the price upfront, take 50% upfront, 50% when ready for shipment.

My friend, I agree with this 100%

now some more air shell pics:







came with this review via email:


I've had my AirShell for about a week and a half now. Here are my thoughts thus far:

Fit is exactly as I expected from the trial Mojave suit that I was sent. I'm 6'1" and about 165 and a Large-Tall fits me great. I have plenty of room to wear whatever I want underneath, but it's not baggy on me. The armor all seems to be positioned correctly and has stayed where I want it after a little initial adjustment. The only complaint I have there is that the right knee armor, on the leg that has its own zipper, tends to want to flip upside down to the outside of my leg when I'm stepping into that leg of the suit. I end up zipping open the armor pouch and flipping it back into place about half the time when I put the suit on. Once in place it stays positioned fine, so it probably is being knocked loose by my boot as I stick my foot in.

Airflow is great. It seems to be on-par with the Mojave trial suit I had, and it is as good as mesh jackets and pants have been. That's important here in Texas. It isn't magic, but it does keep me as cool as can reasonably be expected.

The suit feels well-constructed and sturdy. It is more confidence-inspiring than my mesh gear. If I ever have occasion to test it, which I hope I will not, I expect it will hold up admirably.

I'm impressed but the attention to quality in the manufacturing of my suit. I've had gear from other vendors with loose threads and other sloppy elements of construction that I needed to fix; I've found nothing like that so far on my AirShell. It looks sharp, too.

The pockets are fine. Like most other reviewers I don't understand how to effectively make use of the large pocket on the back, but it's there I suppose. The front waist pockets have flaps and zippers both which makes them a little more involved to get into but certainly more secure. The chest pocket is handy and the one I've used most. The side zippers that allow access to your pants pockets inside the suit were super-useful on the Mojave trial suit I had. Here, they open directly onto the outside of the hip pads (I suppose maybe the Mojave didn't have hip pads- I don't recall). I have to detach the Velcro holding the hip pad in place and move it out of the way to get to my inside pockets, and often they then come completely loose and fall down into the leg of the suit. Maybe if the passthroughs were positioned farther to the front and/or the back of the suit it would be possible to miss the hip pads. As it stands it makes just as appealing to unzip the suit down to the waist and get at my pants pockets that way.

The suit was shipped directly from Pakistan to my door. It appears the actual transit time after shipment was only two days, which is pretty amazing. It was a couple of weeks from the time I placed the order until it shipped, but I think I have one of the very first ones made so that may get shorter. Regardless, if you realize that this was made specifically for me in response to my order, on the other side of the world, and in my hands in a couple of weeks, that's pretty impressive. The box came wrapped in protective outer cloth and arrived in good shape.

The suit came with a thermal liner for cold weather, which I obviously haven't needed yet but it appears to fit into the suit well and it's very thin and light. The price dropped by $100 right after I ordered my suit so I don't know if I just paid an early supporter price, or if the liner has been dropped as standard equipment. My initial contacts with Ghazi by email suggested that the liner might become optional rather than a standard part of the purchase.

All in all I'm very pleased so far with my purchase and expect to get many years of use from it. It's great to be able to wear whatever I want underneath and still ride the bike with proper safety gear that's quick to get on and off at my destination. I recommend my suit and would buy from Teiz again if the occasion arose.

Hello Folks,



As you must have noticed, we are taking severe steps to significantly improve your experience of purchasing premium riding gear. From a reduced manufacturing time to factory-direct deliveries, we are taking custom gear fulfilment to new levels.



The next step in improvement is fast and more effecient delivery of trial sizes. For this purpose, we will be moving our warehouse very soon. The cost of moving all our stock to a new location is significant hence we would rather pass that money to you in the form of SUPER DEALS!.



You can pick up the last few in-stock Power Shell suits and Navigator jackets at closeout prices before they get shipped to our new location and are bumped back to their regular prices.



Very few pieces left so act fast. Here are links to the closeout items:

Just wanted to give a bump for Ghazi. Contacted him last week regarding ordering a suit, got a trial suit shortly thereafter, and am looking forward to receiving my suit soon!

Best part though? The awesome customer service that has been
provided!!

Ghazi, if you still have that XL closeout Navagator Jacket, I'll take it.

Alas, no closeouts for larger gentlemen. Ghazi, when are you going to come up with gorilla sizing - short legs, long torso, broad chest, and long arms? :)

(Just kidding, I love my perforated leather Teiz jacket & wear it every chance I get.)

Cleaning tips?

It's been a great summer commuting season in my HiViz PowerShell. In the process, it has picked up the usual dirt/oil marks. Anyone have any tips for cleaning it? I'm asking specifically about the Cordura.
Thanks!

Ghazi, I kept trying to order on line but it keeps saying my credit card is incorrect, I tried several cards but to no avail.

My cards are all good.

I would like an XL Navagator jacket.

BTW, Pam and I are moving to Tennessee and have a new shipping address.
