I'm sorry if this has been asked before but...

Where do you find your gear?

I want to order online but I need to try on some stuff and there isn't much out there.

Is it okay just to wear guys stuff?

I am proud to say that I need the anatomically correct girl roost guard, but just barely. :D

I want to come to spa day soon but I'm a little intimidated by everything I need to get.

Thanks!

Try on some gear at your local shop or Cycle gear, just to get an idea of size. Then browse the classifieds on variouse forums for some used gear to start with. I had to buy the pads new, and Cycle Gear was having an awesome sale on dirtbike gear, so I picked up a couple of jerseys and a pair of pants. Helmet was online on clearance (once again, tried on in the store first), everything else I've picked up used on various forums.

Perhaps if you were to list the items you need and what sizes, we may better be able to steer you towards some good deals.

Oh and did I mention, I have an excellent deal on a small sized helmet in classifieds ::smirk::

We don't have a lot of women's gear in stock, but I can kind of let you know if they fit true to size depending on the gear name. We do carry the women's fox chest protector that is great!! I have one and it is definitely for a lady. If you have any questions, just PM me.

Not sure of your size, but this person has a great price on a whole set. Thor sz. 30 pants, L Jersey and L gloves all for $30 + shipping. Pink and blue.

(I have it on good authority that the pink/pink set has been sold :D )

Hey! So in womens gear the pants size is just like your everyday pants and shirt same as that. Fox gear runs small, MSR Gear is pretty nice but my favorite is Troy Lee Design .

My favorite pair of riding pants is the over the boot, TLD Rev pants, and I have A LOT of riding pants that I have accumulated over the years, I am pretty sure I have a riding gear fetish. ::smirk:: The TLD Rev pant is also the only women's gear that I own. I have a MSR set that is called Bubble Gum(pink), but it is men's gear. I don't think Klim makes gear specifically for women, but their gear is heavy duty.

Anyway, yes for the most part the Women's gear sizing is supposed to be like your everyday pants size, but just like everyday pants the size varies by make.

Oops this is what happens when your husband uses your laptop without logging off.

Thanks again!

I have 4 Fox riding sets.

I'm a light weight and kinda short (okay very short 5'2 and 110lbs, hence forth the 85XC). So I have two "Girls 180" sets from FOX, one "Women's 180" from FOX and one "Elite Womens" from FOX that is way more roomy than all of them. The Elite pants are too long for me but it is way vented. Very important here in the humid and hot Louisiana.

I love all of them though! The Troy Lee looks sweet but I have never tried any on. Guys riding clothes? NO WAY!!!!
