Thread: Full leather suit - what to get?

  1. #1

    Full leather suit - what to get?

    I would like to go to an advanced rider course and then possibly a track day or two in the future.

    With that being said i will need to purchase a full leather suit. Now as it will only beel used 2 or 3 times a year i dont want to be paying big money.

    Just wondering what people recommened is a decent quality product that is easy on the pocket.

    My last suit was a Collins and I was very happy with the quality for a pretty good price. Certainly a lot better than your mid-range Dianese etc

    I personally just hire the suit for the day from the people running the ride day.
    Works out cheaper for the amount of times I go.

    Yeah i have brought all my other gear from MCAS. I really need to try the suits on as im 6'2 and only 73kgs so fitment may be any issue.

    But i will keep my eye out for sales.

    ive got an A* 2 piece and a something else 1 piece. they're both good. the 2 piece was about 600 on special and the 1 piece i paid 100 from a mate.

    The 2 piece is for my road riding and the 1 piece is for track/motard... so a lot of falling off going on on those suckers.

    if you're not going to use it much just get something second hand and cheap.

    Old thread, though I must say that a full leather suit is a nice investment especially if you are a trackday racer.

    I prefer the two piece zip together, gives me the best of both worlds.

    I have a Teknic two piece which is perfect for the odd track day and everyday riding.

    I had both and the one time I used the one-piece for a full-day road ride was exactly that - one time. Pain in the arse for the road.

    I agree, for trackday/racer use it's the way to go, but two-piece for road.
