Riding gear for the tall, slender woman

Girlfriend is taller than average, 5'8 and skinnier than average (use size 0). Right now options look like buying kids gear and having it end at her elbows & smash her chest or womens gear but having about a yard of fabric flapping in the breeze. About the best Ive seen is Alpinestars Stella (finding smaller sizes of Dianese is even a chore).

Hoping maybe you guys/gals might have some first or second hand experience of any other lines or brands to look at, even if I have to ship it from Europe (had to do it with all of my jackets anyway so whatever).

Priority right now is a summer jacket, either mesh or heavily ventilated. She definitely want something more fashionable/feminine cut.

On a more serious note...

Companies like Vanson do custom gear for prices very near their standard gear. Something custom may be your best option for protection and style. Protection being the key.

My wife and daughter (both of similar dimensions to your GF) have used Hein Gericke and Halvarssons jackets and trousers. Both fit well.

Thanks I will check those too. Couple of things at the Hein might work, will compare measurements this weekend. The other brand, based on the pics, might not work off the shelf anyway as their doesnt look to be much of a provision "up top."

Hi Ryan! (Bring her to Deals Gap!)
Is there an exact date for it? If the stocks play along I should be able to fund it but I just dropped some coin on a two week moto tour of Italy culminating in a ride to Swizerland via the Stelvio in the beginning of Sept.

Dainese do a tall option in some garments for men, might be worth checking with the factory about the same for women.

I used to work for a Dainese dealer in London years ago, the US importer at the time was very cautious about stock levels and range coverage. If the same philosophy exists now you might find that options are thin on the ground over there but better in Europe.

My first wife was like almost 6'0 and had size 34 in Europe. Which is small I can say. She fitted a Dainese suit very well.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Based on measurements gonna give this a shot

https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...mer-net-jacket

May or may not fit the bust but we shall see. Sleeves supposedly are only about an inch short.

So sticking with the Spidi in XS for around town (all she does with me for now). Sleeves are a bit short and its tight in the chest if you rock the back protector but a good feminine cut. Would probably do the astars leather option in S when she finally rides in the mountains with me but this one is a great summer, around town jacket. Tons of mesh and the white keeps the sun from heating it up. Also appears to have a bit more protection than the lightweight astars based on crash reviews.
