I would be afraid to buy something off ebay without trying it on first.

A deal is only a deal if it fits.
That's why mine was a deal. Nobody wanted a 3XL and as an order cancelation at BigTop it was there to try on. ;-)

While I'm no expert in the area of leather suits I imagine a cheap one will be better than textiles. I can't see them just flying apart in a crash.
i don't know about that. without knowing the quality of the leather and more importantly the stitching there's no knowing how well those suits would hold together in a crash. i'd rather take a well built textile suit over an unknow leather product.

I am of the same mindset not to "buy unless you try" but it seems like a deal.
Might be worth the risk.
(Although I think Cuff's suit may be a better deal.)
There is a standard sizing chart...
Even when I bought my two-piece at BBY Kawi years ago the pants were too big but the jacket fit. No chance to mix-and-match because they'd have an un-matched two-piece leftover. So I just drank lotsa beer to fill in the pants.

I'm no expert on suit and armour specs, but I'm sure they save some money by including CE level 1 armour (soft) which you'd want to swap out for CE level 2 (hard). Note that none of the ebay listings specify which level of armour, just that's it's CE rated protection.

The CE level 2 armour was an optional upgrade when I ordered a bespoke jacket from Rubber Side Down in Richmond.

Feedback shows that you can trust the seller. Just go for the order. If there is any problem do make a return. The other solution is you can open a dispute through paypal. So payment will be stuck for seller:)
A leather suit in that price is something what we can only get through ebay.

Double that price and get a very very good quality custom suit. There's a guy on FB that's making some seriously nice suits one and two piece custom suits.

Just as well, I cant remember where I saw it but someone did a video stress test on noname leathers like this compared to the name ones and the name ones won, handily, every time.
