I am jealous of Geja in Spain who doesn't understand the need for extra warmth for riding. Our winters in Calgary can start very early and can be quite chilly! We peservere in early spring cause we want to get out there and ride after the long winter!

I love the jacket and the whole idea of creating wear for women! It is so hard to find anything to fit, and although I am not very big, it is still hard to find appropriate clothing. Everything seems to be made for teenies with no life on their bodies!
Love your concept, keep it coming!

I agree with the other ladies about the sizing and what we are forced to wear due to the lack of a reality check from the merchants around the world. Plus-sized women have their own money, and buy their own bikes. We want our own line of clothes. Would someone open their eyes and know that there is a huge market for plus-sized motorcycle clothing and gear with style. There is a line of motorcycle riding plus-sized women waiting to spend cash on some style.

Hold on girls -- as soon as I get all my ducks in a row I will be the designer of those things we want, so look for me in the future under the label MUCHLOVE

I love the look and options for the jacket.
I don't think the chaps would keep you warm in the cool evenings in the north. Also what do you do if you don't wear a belt to hold them up?

Editor Response
Here is a response from Shelly Reiner, the owner of Girl Gear: I have worn the chaps in 50 degree weather. The wind does not penetrate and the Velcro at the ankles keeps the air from going up the leg. They are as warm as my Aerostich pants. My jacket is over my waist and the bike tank protects the crotch area from cold/wind.

I do not know of many chaps that are not worn with a belt. Do you? I think that is why they are chaps and not pants.

I agree with Kristy. I am a "woman of substance", a "big babe", etc. It has been really hard to find "off the rack" clothing made for the larger woman. And even when you find a 4XL something -- when you look at the sizing chart, you soon find out that the companies idea of 3XL to 4XL is a size 18-20 -- which is sooo not me.

I am tired of plain old black leather or having to shop in the men's section, and while I am getting healthy slowly but surely, it would be nice to have a really good looking and functional jacket/riding gear now.
