Add to the list: www.fulldaytouring.com - they make custom deerskin gloves, and I mean custom - from a drawing of your hand. I have 2 pairs, my husband has a pair, and another friend has a pair. They're great gloves. Mine came out so lovely, he put them in the website - mine are the red and black model of the Matawaska. It's hard for a woman to find great-fitting gloves, and this guy solved my problem.

Does anyone have any ideas about non-leather gear for women, Silly me being a vegitarian, I don't like to eat or wear meat.

I ride with an Olympia Motosports AST textile jacket for max visibility and almost year round wearability. (I have it in the men's size for fit -- women's usually too small for me - not to mention the men's version is even more blinding!) It has a very nice liner that keeps you toasty down into the 30's without any heated gear and the liner is cut like a real jacket you can wear anytime.

I found this site and am thinking about getting some chaps from them. Appears to be all textile. I like the light weight and the weatherproofing most textiles offer over leather.

I have big calves (thanks to soccer) and I can't find any plain boots that will fit over them. Anyone have a similar issue and had any success?

sry I'm just now spotting this. The trick for you may be to find a good solid pair of velcro boots (such as AlpineStars, Sidi, etc). They come in a variety of colors and usually have a zipper/velcro on the bottom portion, and an additional velcro portion on top- allowing you to customize the fit to your calf and ankle.
