New Rev-It One-piece Suit on the way

I was talking with my BMW dealer last week about Aerostich, which is on my wish list of places to go to try on their gear (they only have the one location, in Duluth); he told me to hold off buying a Roadcrafter one-piece riding suit because Rev-It was soon coming out with the same product which, in his words (paraphrasing) "would have many improvements over Aerostich's older design and would be more affordable". Because Rev-It is sold all over the new product will be something that one can try on before buying.

Anyone have any info on this, or seen one?

Can't talk about the Rev'it one piece, but I've looked at their other items and they make great stuff. I'd like to see wha their one-piece suit looks like.

On His Ride,

Update from my dealer

I asked my dealer about the status of Revit's new suit. Here is what he came back with today:

"I have checked with Rev-it today and the esimated release date has been pushed back to the beginning of 2007. They are experimenting with a new fabric and bonding technique never tried before and are still in the r/d phase."

Sorry for the false alarm. I'm not going to wait another year to get a riding suit. Looks like I'll still be going to Duluth sometime to get fitted for an Aerostich.
