    I just bought the Olympia AST pants and the Olympia Airglide jacket, so far they fit the best of anything I've tried on. I'm 5'9" and the pants are perfect and the arms on the jacket are OK, maybe could be a tad longer but not bad.
    I also bought a Shoei helmet...now I'm broke and have to work a while before entering another bike shop.

    I'm 5'8" and had a Kilimanjaro for years and loved it. Until it started leaking. Voni, I think when it faded from red to pink is when it lost its effectiveness. Any correlation there?
    Anyway, I bought an Olympia AST and love the fit. One design flaw is the liner is anchored at the wrists by only one attachement. It's annoying to have the liner pull out or to have to hold onto it every time I take the jacket off.

    Still looking for the perfect fit in pants.
    Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.

    That is what I'm saving up for now, the AST jacket. I think the airglide will work well for summer but the AST seems more all weather/touring.

    I talked to someone last year at Americade
    who had ridden from California in an Airglide.
    I have one myself and you might not need
    a heavier jacket unless you ride yearround.
    You might want to hold the purchase until
    you have a feel of it.
