Hi Ladies!

Well I have to say I like my ventura pants and jacket set. Funny i have even had women come up to me in the supermarket to aks what I was wearing they liked it so much! They have been great in really hot 47C and in cold with a heated jacket. The only down side is some of the stitching is coming undone. I am hard on it, but it was coming undone within the first month. 8 months later its still going strong with some hand repairs.

Thanks for the review. I have been lurking in the Revit website for a long time.
I have been looking for a very long time for a good touring suit.

I will definitely check this suit out.

One quick question, regarding fitting: is Revit.co.uk size guide accurate?
3) Size Guide Woman

important as I am between 40 and 42 from their sizing. 40 may be a tiny be tight but i would like to be sure!

Cheers,
