Two Questions...

First about woman's gear...I am 5'11" and I am concerned that pants that are long enough for me are going to be too wide everywhere else. Any tall woman on here? What brand are your leathers? (BTW - there are no shops close by that sell much woman's gear...I will be driving to try on stuff in the future but for now I am just using the internet.)

Second...if I have to buy men's pants in order for them to fit correctly do they zip together the same with woman's jackets? Do they have the same zipper size?

Thanks!

Even being small I have noticed women's gear sizes are horrible and the products are not the most protective.
I have a Men's Joe Rocket leather Jacket (Blaster I think) and Men's Joe Rocket Moto GP pants.
These two Zip together all the way around.
This is a requirement at most tracks.

Glad to see you here .

Thanks Kimberly

I have tried on a Joe Rocket jackets in the past (one of the few brands that are carried for woman around here) and it did not seem to fit me right. Because of that I have been looking at other brands. My only issue with the guys jacket is my chest. My husband's jacket fits me pretty good but it squeezes the girls pretty tight. That is why I was thinking maybe men's pants and a woman's jacket...we'll see!

i wish i were tall. my problem is the opposite. i am too short for gear. i had an a* 2 pc. suit that i sold. the inseam was too long. the knee pucks were more like shin pucks on me. i need petite sizes in gear, which are non-existent.

Find gear as close to your size as you can and have it tailored by a leather repair company. Finding a good one is the hard part, they can fix it up in no time to fit you perfect.
