The Xcelerator is a great suit right off the hanger. Much thanks to Ed from Team Zilla for the sizing help because the suit is spot on. I'm 6' 170lbs and he said a 46 would be fine. I was a little worried at first but it fits perfect. Put on my bioforce pro shirt with just the chest and back protector and the suit feels just fine. Has all the bells and whistles that you'd expect from a track suit at this price point. My only gripe would be that the liner is NOT removable but for the price, I'd say it was a score. If you're worried about size, give'em a call. Get one before they're out of stock!!

This Cortech Jacket is an extremely versatile jacket. The neoprene ends and the 2 inner liners (thermal and waterproof) are excellent extras that come standard. I haven't taken the jacket on a test ride, but it was very comfortable while testing it inside (I'll update after a few trips). Having said that, I found the armor to be lacking quite a bit but I have the bioforce jacket so no issues for me (if I didn't, I'd upgrade the armor asap!). The phoslight is really bright and the jacket looks great (white and black scheme). Bought a medium, I'm 6' 170lbs and it fits me good so I would say it runs a size large. As of right now, wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone. If anything changes, I'll let you ladies and gents know.
