I thought Geoffry was gonna make a "chest protection" joke... too bad. lol. Everyone has some great advice. SickNic, hella dope set up. Very fasionably matching!

I'm a big fan of wearing protection... at all times. And I hella dig the idea of custom leathers too, where the hell is everybody getting those?

I have an A* two piece suit. Zips in. Because of my long ass torso, I really need to bring it to an alterations place and have the zip in piece extended a bit. I dream of a really nice one piece with some alterations... one day, some day! Good luck, Cheers!

any of you girls short like me? I'm 5'2" and want to be better fitted to the bike. I want some aftermarket rear sets but don't know which to get and how to adjust them. I used to be a cyclist and learned that being fitted properly to the bike would reduce a lot of pain and fatigue.

I wanna throw my suit out there too. Im not a women, how ever most women are still bigger then me. I paid 600 for the Chicane suit at the Progressive motorcycle show. I only went to ask Flow what the hell a drain pipe slip knot is. Anyway, I can see the more expensive gear is the more comfortable it is. Maybe. But, I finally rode in my suit. It was like wearing pajamas. I think if I paid a grand for a suit I would never take it off. And I would want to be buried in it. Unless my boy wants to race.....

I believe Vortex are still among the most adjustable and cheapest options.

Plus, they have really good grip from what I hear

Sidi STs (& probably other models) are available down to a size 37 if you are willing to order internationally. With shipping and customs the total for mine was just under the U.S. MSRP. I think I went with the ST's instead of the Vortice's because I'd read the fastening system on the Vortice's was a hassle to get in and out of (while the safety features of those two models are supposedly equivalent). The STs look a little similar to rear entry ski boots with a buckle on each side and a (zipping & Velcro closed) inner liner.

Boots fit perfect if I can wear them under my pants (street gear), but as is the case with ski boots, since the bulk of women's calves tends to be situated lower, they can fit a bit differently than for men of the same foot size, and with leathers tucked in, I can just barely get the inner liner zipped. My max calf circumference is just over 14 inches, but that part is actually above the critical zip area (the last inch or so right before the Velcro starts).

Although a guy, I use a Dainese Avro Pro suit. Really comfortable and the stretch fabric works well as I'm a bit too wide across the chest for it. It's way more comfortable than my similarly sized A* 2 Piece which is all leather. Moving around on the bike is great.

Back protector wise I use a Forcefield Sport Lite 2, just because it's lower profile than the L2 and still CE level 2. The Forcefield stuff is great as it moulds to your body shape, making moving around a lot easier. Combined with the Avro, mobility on the bike is great!

Dainese do a women specific cut, I got my girlfriend, a jacket and matching pants, which zip all the way round.

Boots I have A* and really like them.

Glove I have A* and will never buy them again. I came off in a pair of GTX-365 around 20mph and the palm shredded. My SP-1s have lasted about 12 months and the right thumb and palm is coming to pieces where the stitching has come looses. Worst gloves I've ever had! I had a pair of Dani-Sport Ti and they were so much better (until the velcro died).

I've tried a pair of Held Phantom's on. If I could afford the Titan's I would get them custom fitted.

This is the suit my wife has. She is 5'2" and it fits her nicely. She has been down in it once on the street and it is scuffed up, but fine for continued use.

spidi lady lizard suit (she has 2... one for the track, and one for touring)
alpinestars gp plus gloves
alpinestars smx plus boots
knox countour chest and back protectors.

these work well for her, she loves them and she is very picky about what she likes and doesnt like.
+1 on the PsycleSkins. They are awesome!

Look at the Sidi ST or ST Air. They have sizes all the way down to 37, and they are not a "lesser" boot. They offer the same protection and an easier process to put them on and take them off.

I went to their website and I am interested in knowing more. Can you post up some pics of your suit, including some close-ups of the stitching? That would be much appreciated.
