A New Look for '07

I'm sporting a new look this season, thanks to Rose for bringing the REV'IT line to MAX BMW. I've been riding for 8 years now, this the first women's gear I've ever owned.

At 5'10", men's wear has been my only choice. I tend to tune out when I hear the phrase: "made for women". That has always meant "made smaller". Rose talked me into trying the women's pants and jacket. She explained that the REV'IT line is from The Netherlands, where the women are larger! She was right.

I walked away with the Angel jacket and matching Factor pants. Finally pants made for women with an inseam long enough for a BMW! So far, I'm impressed with the attention to detail. I find myself waiting to get caught in the rain in this suit. It seems that REV’IT has been listening to some 'Stitch owners. There is a gusset behind the zipper on the pants; no way is water getting to you! Even the hand pocket zippers are rubberized. More details as I get a chance to test this suit out. But for now, I'll just enjoy looking like a woman on the bike!
