Olympia Avenger 1 Piece Mesh Tech Suit The Olympia Avenger One Piece Mesh Tech suit offers a level of protection and convenience unlike anything on the market today. Sized to fit comfortably over street clothes, it makes an excellent commuter suit and also excels when touring long distances through moderate to extremely warm climates. Layer up a bit and the Avenger is ready for slightly cooler rides. Constructed in rugged Cordura fabric with ballistic nylon mesh panels, this suit combines maximum airflow with superior abrasion resistance. Standing boot on entry is a breeze due to a heavy duty zipper that runs from the torso to the knee and side leg zippers that extend from the waistband to the bottom hem. Features Outer shell constructed in 500 denier Cordura fabric with ballistic airflow mesh panels EZ entry and exit Heavy duty torso to knee and full length side leg zippers Removable CE approved Motion Flex armor at elbows and shoulders Removable CE approved Motion Flex articulated back protector Removable and adjustable height CE Motion Flex armor at knees Removable EVA compression foam at hips Cool mesh airflow lining Custom Fit detailing at collar, cuffs, elbows, waist and bottom hem Custom Fit, EZ Hem boot cut bottom Comfort neoprene framed collar 3M Scotchlite reflective piping at front, sides and back Three storage pockets plus interior cell phone pocket

So far I really like it.. I have a 1 piece suit for cooler weather and find myself in the hoot weather... only using my mesh jacket.. not my mesh pants.. just extra bother.. I wanted this 1 piece mesh because I commute and find that I use a 1 piece.. so far this suit is great.. last weekend I was riding in a very bike heavy environment.. crawling through traffic.. a guy walked in front of my bike as he walked from one bar to the next and said you have to be super hot in that suit.. No, I said.. it's mesh.. no issues.. it was humid and about 85.. I was sure I needed the 4XL (out of stock#.. I weigh about 255 and am 6 Ft tall .. The 3XL fits me well and works fine.. The zippers #so far) seem to bee high quality as does everything else with this gear.. I love it. With my REvZilla bucks, I was pleased with the pricing as well..
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got the "blue" shoes.. They are actually light gray.. I have changed the shoelaces .. the ones that came with the shoe were white.. I found gray shoelaces that are not so obvious.. I plan on using these shoes for commuting and wearing in the office.. Now, at least, I have some ankle protection.. before I was wearing "normal" street shoes.. They work very well for my desired purpose.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have other textile pants.. Mesh that fit fine. I wear over pants so I can wear my work Khaki's under while commuting. I bought the same size that I have in other pants... These are way too small in the waist ! I checked & the size I need is out of stock. I can make them fit, but I'll have to lose at least 10 pounds or so & I doubt that they will be very comfortable for waring on a long trip.. so count me in as disappointed. I don't know yet if I will return them because they don't have the size or need or go on a diet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
