    Good 1 piece suits

    Guys, I'm having some trouble decidingwhich 1 piece suit to get. I'm looking to spend $800 max and will probably get from ebay or down south. Here are the suits I'm considering:

    1. Alpinestars Vector
    2. Motogp Kangaroo Compression
    3. Agv SP4
    4. Shift SR1

    If you have any experience with these or comments, please post them. Thank you.

    I see 23 people have looked but no one's answered and I can’t seem to sleep tonight, maybe my 2 cents will get the messages rolling for you!

    I ordered 1 piece racing leathers from IM Leathers in Hamilton, Ontario http://www.imleathers.com/index.htm

    I know it’s more than you budgeted for but after 15 or so low speed and a couple of pretty quick road rash tests, I can’t recommend them enough! They are completely custom made and they fit perfectly.

    Listening to the pit racing BS, the name brand off the rack suits tend to wear through quickly and the seams don’t hold up. I can’t say I’ve had any personal experience to say one way or the other but if it is a race suit you’re after, you might want to poll the WMRC members and get their opinions.

    Now the bad/good news….$1,300 but I feel worth every penny.

    If I die on Phillip Island, so what! I'm already in Heaven! WOOHOOO!!!

    My experience with Alpinestars - and pretty much everyone I know that has it, swears by it. Love my one piece stella (women's) suit. Took 1 ride to feel comfortable enough to wear to the track.

    I'm getting a Teknic suit and I've heard very good things about them from people who actually race.

    Thanks for all the input and suggestions. I've decided to go with the A* Vector. It's currently on closeout prices and I couldn't resist the quality and design of the suit. Thanks again for helping me decide.

    I have the Shift Sumo leathers. I've had some good get off's at speed and all to show is some scuffing. The built in armor did an excellent job!

    that's the plan. I should be doing at least a couple race weekends if all goes well.
