Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
This is an amazing suit for the price. I am a tall rider, 6'5 with a 34 inch waist... so needless to say, it has been difficult for me to find a quality suit that fits my build. This was solved by ordering this suit with longer legs.
Pros of this suit. 1. Included back/tailbone armor... huge + for me 2. Use of kangaroo in about half the suit. 3. Composite/Metal hard points on shoulder/eblow/knee (Knee armor is adjustable) again, huge + for a tall guy. 4. Extensive perforation, I am from southern california, so lots of perf is a MUST. 5. Large panels around impact areas. 6. Suit moves really well, I want to wear it around the house.
Cons. 1. I ordered it in black, so even with excellent perf, it is hot in so-cal summer. 2. I would have liked more built in hip armoring.
Fit and finish is excellent, I feel I got much more suit than what I paid for.
