I am a 5'6" 125lb woman. I bought a small.
I realize this suit was not specifically made for a woman.
Fit:
Quite long in the body and a little long in the leg for me. I cut a few inches off the bottom of the back protector (so-so quality foam type, will likely replace) Left as is, the suit would have been unwearable as the back protector propped the shoulders of the suit to about ear level.
Lots of good quality snaps and Velcro to create a good custom fit. No "flying squirrel" effect on the freeway caused by wind catching in extra fabric.
I had to remove the liner to allow the suit to zip without having to force the zipper over my hip area. Would likely be able to wear the liner if I was not putting the suit on over street cloths.
Look:
I am quite happy with it. It has a LOT more style than others one piece suites I have seen. Well placed reflective stripes. Love the 2 front cargo pockets for my phone and wallet. They have waterproof zippers and Velcro for easy closure.
Quality:
I think it is a GREAT value. Fabric, zippers, stitching all high quality. Only thing they skimped on was the back protection. That may have been a good thing as I had no issue altering it to allow the suit to fit :)

I am a 5'7" 125 pound woman with a c cup. I chose a 38 in the black and grey option feeling it offers more visibility.
The fit is perfect for me to wear over my work cloths and the customize-able fit options of this jacket are awesome. I am able to still look like a woman while wearing gear that provides top level protection.
The jacket offers adjust-ability in key areas. In the waist to allow you to have a figure, and adjustable areas in key parts of the sleeves to prevent lose fabric that often causes buffeting.
I live in Seattle. An area where the weather can go from sunny 70's to pouring down rain in the lower 50's in a matter of hours. It is important that my gear is able to easily keep up with the whims of mother nature. I can drive into work fully suited up, and in a mater of moments remove inner linings and open vents to be suitably geared for sunny 70 degree temperatures.
I bought the complimentary revit airvolution and kelvin gloves. They both look great with the jacket. The Kelvins are long enough in the wrist to provide the protection you want in rainy cold weather. The airvolutions are shorter and allow for the airflow you need in hot weather.

Love these gloves. Bought them in white to help reflect the sun and provide additional viability.. They look great and keep my hands comfortable and sweat free.
Only thing I would change is the white on the palm of the glove. I would prefer it to be all black. I had new grips put on my bike and the white part of the palms became soiled pretty quick.

White Hella Jacket

I wanted a motorcycle jacket that people would not miss. I live and ride primarily in the downtown Seattle area. When riding my motercycle I want people to SEE ME.
The white version of this jacket does the trick :)
Aside from people turning heads when I ride by, I am always greeted with compliments when I walk into a store/coffeeshop.
This jacket is very well made. It was a little stiff and tight when I first got it, but that is due to the very thick, high quality leather the jacket is made with. I wore it around the house a bit to losen it up and it now fits perfectly.
Arm and body length are perfect for me. It does not cut into my legs when riding.
Lots of zippered vents, inside pockets, and adjustable snaps to get the perfect fit.
Pros Comfortable, Rugged, Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.

True Women's specific riding gloves are a rare commodity. The Hella glove isn't merely a resized men's glove-the Hella was built from ground up for Ladies. The Hella glove chassis features a more slender fit than typical gloves, perfect for women's hands. The entire glove is built from a supple Battlehide goatskin chassis for great dexterity coupled with asphalt tested durability. As for the styling, that's what we'd call empowering. Uniquely feminine yet tough. Like an Italian supermodel with a concealed carry permit. Abrasion resistant premium grade battlehide goatskin leather Positive lock backhand closure snaps Padded knuckle panel Pre-curved palm and finger design Women's specific fit Imported

I bought these in white to go with my jacket that matches.
They fit beautifly, are well made, look awesome and are the perfect all around gloves. They have venting between the fingers and on the palm to keep your hands from getting hot in the summer.
I bought the white pair, and I knew what I was getting into with buyig white motorcycle gloves. Unlike jackets, gloves are made with much softer leather. The softer leather soils easier and is harder to get clean. I was sure to spray 2 coats of leather protecter/stain repeller on the gloves prior to wear.
After several weeks of wear, they still look great.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable
Cons Scuffs Easily
Yes, I recommend this product.
