I was really interested in one of these suit until I saw the size chart. I'll admit I'm a little over weight, but I'd never think that having a 36" waist and 48" chest would put me in a position where I was so "huge" I wouldn't fit in a 3XL.

Once I can see pics of the colours (so I can discern if I want the Hi Viz Yellow or light Green), as I want tit to match my neon Scorpion helmet, then I'd like to buy one of these.

I too would like to see some neon tits to match my helmet, but some things you just can't ask for in a public forum.

The knee pucks aren't doing it for me - they seem totally out of place in a suit like this.

Thought you guys would like to know that Ghazi has made a forum on the website, and it includes an entire section on sizing. I popped over to the site this morning to see if any news or new pics were up and noticed it.

Exactly. At $289, that's an example of where the priority lies in designing a suit like this. Bling before safety. I'll duck as the cannonballs are sent over the bow

How do you figure? It has knee pucks, knee pads, shin pads, shoulder pads, elbow pads, double stitching, 8 different reflective panels, and a 600 denier cordura shell with 1680 denier in the high impact zones. Yup, sounds like a lot of bling all right.

Hell, I owned a Rev'It Cayenne at over $450 and had to purchase a back protector separately.

Looks like they are in the Fieldsheer school of sizing: I am tall and not fat, and I needed a 5XL jacket from Fieldsheer :-)

I'm not so much bothered by that but they just look stupid on a suit like this - I don't recall ever seeing knee pucks on a textile suit (or pants come to think of it).

How much of this Teiz suit is actually mesh? The close up shows more solid cordura than mesh and the website doesn't show... a "mesh suit" in my mind should be mostly mesh! :)

There are 2 suits, a mesh one and a vented one. I think the mesh suit is mostly mesh. I'd join up on their forum or email Ghazi for specifics.
