Just like to make sure the girls (meaning other girl riders) are well protected (and it doesn't hurt if we feel/look cute in the process)!

Yup, I knew that (it's all Tucker Rocky), and with the new JR designs, it's more and more apparent (very similar styling). The new PT suff that came out in March was their first real foray into sportbike-oriented gear (and it's sold like hotcakes... I know of several dealers/shops where the women's PT gear has been their top-selling stuff ever since it came out).

Other great thing about JR/PT is their sizing (unlike A* and Icon) is VERY consistent and true-to-size.

What sort of problems have you run into with sizing nee? Any advice you could give would be awesome as I'll be lookin around for a new leather jacket soon. My textile one that I have right now is the JR phoenix and it fits perfectly...do u find alot of discrepency within a few brands??

I ran into a lot of discrepancy within Icon's line. Textile ran HUGE (but actually inconsistent from one color to the next within the same style/size) while leather runs really small (for instance, a friend of mine who wears a size 7 in clothing, and is slim/small chested actually had to get an XL in the Kitty jacket).

Alpinestars, on the other hand, just runs really small overall (and amusingly enough their men's stuff actually can run LARGE ).

I've just found that with JR and PT, the size you wear in a tee-shirt (i.e. S, M, L) is the size you'll wear in their jackets. And the size you'll wear in mesh is the same you'll wear in leather.

Ill give a major tip. Try it on. Then go through the motions of squatting and extending your arms as if you were actually riding. If the jacket rises to far up the arms or the back. Its to small. If the paint get uncomfortably tight in any areas. You guessed it. They are to small.

Good luck with that. Most shops are lucky to have a small selection for the ladies.

For non-race style pants, try the Alpinestars "Cat" pants ( ), the Joe Rocket "Trixie" pants, or the new Icon "Bombshell" pants (of the three, the Alpinestars are the most neutral/simple in styling, and will work well regardless what jacket you get... and they're SUPER sexy on).

As for fit tips, only other thing I'd take into consideration (cus when you try them on, they'll either fit, or they won't) is if you're short, look for pants that have an unfinished hem so they can be cut to length (I know the Icon Bombshell's have this feature, but can't recall about the other two).

Oh at 5'6", you'll be FINE... that's not short at all (average is like 5'3" - 5'5" so things will probably fit you fine!)

At the moment, I ride in jeans. I'm looking for some overpants to keep a bit warmer in winter, and I want to get the Trixie pants to go with my jacket. I'm also going to look into Draggin' jeans in Daytona next week (my BF swears by them... Absolutely loves them!)

And don't forget to wear your riding boots when trying them on (since riding boots often have a bit more height than regular shoes) and, as someone else mentioned earlier in the thread, get into a riding position, so you can see how they ride up on the leg, if they gap at the back of the waist, etc...

ohhh hahahah I always thought I was short :P lol good to know I will be okay for sizing!
I've also heard good things about those draggin jeans, one of the bike shops up here that's all they normally stock. But from what I can recall when looking into them they're not as high up on style as other brands- or at least I thought so anwayys...but let me know what u find!!

Well that's been my aversion to them. They're kinda plain, kinda high waisted, and just look like... well... "Mom jeans."

BUT, a friend who went down in July was wearing them, and while he suffered some major injuries, road rash wasn't one of them (not a bit, actually). So I might suck it up and get a pair for harder/more agressive rides.

I know the Australian version of Draggin jeans is offering a few more styles in women's jeans than the American company; a girl on another forum got what they call a low-rise, and while they're higher than jeans I'd normally wear, they still weren't QUITE as bad. So if I can't find any good ones from the American company, I might order some from down under.


Icon and Alpinestars also make reinforced Denim jeans but I don't know that either of them have the Kevlar that the Draggin's have. Also, I've heard the Icon runs quite literally 2 sizes small, and are made for people with no butt.
