Where do I start. Of course I was a little skeptical about buying an off the race suit, not that I have a strange body type, but the thought of not being able to try it on. Revzilla's no hassle return policy put me at ease, I figured the most I could lose was the return shipping. On to the good stuff.
PROS:
A great fit, I didn't really expect it to be so good. I'm 6' and 195 lbs and usually wear a 34 waist pant with a 30" inseam. The size 44 fits perfect, the pant length is plenty long to cover my boot while crouched on the bike. The jacket fits a little tighter than expected, but once its all zipped up its quite comfortable.
The sleeves are just right, I typically wear a size 16 dress shirt with 34/35 sleeves. The neck feels a little large, but my last set had a semi-raised collar.
No saggy butt. So many suits (including my last one) made you look like you had a load in your pants.
The leather finish is top notch, zippers work well and velcro around the sleeves tightens well. The lettering looks much more professional in person than in the pictures on the internet.
CONS:
Around the pant waist the connection is a single U clip and a single snap button. The U clip immediately fell off the pant and onto the floor before I even got the pant on. Its possible the rivet broke during construction, the pant fits fine without the clip but then its just relying on the single snap button. Not a deal breaker for me.
Unlike a video I found online covering the suit, the bottoms of the pant legs Do Not have zippers. A bummer, but again not a deal breaker for what I paid.
Final thoughts: This seems to be the best deal going for what I paid. The item was in stock and ready to ship, returnable and suited my needs. I could have paid $1200+ for a custom suit through some of the big names, not that I don't dream of owning one someday, just not ready to drop that kind of coin yet.
