Vanson is top quality gear. I’ve “tested” my 2-piece suit twice and both times they held up very well. My friend who also wears Vanson walked away from a terrible crash that involved both impact and sliding.atomlowe said:Hey guys,
I've been looking for new gear. I've pretty much decided to go with the Vanson gear from BK. I like the jacket/pants as opposed to the one a two piece suits. So heres the thing....
The Cobra Perf is $799 because of the canuck buck . I'm also looking at the Sport Tech pants as well. I would be purchasing both for about $1200 to $1300 with taxes. Now thats a hell of a lot of coin. I haven't asked Trevor for any type of a discount as of yet but will. It doesn't hurt to ask
I've bugeted for this, but am looking for any other options.
What do you guys think....am I nutz?
I have the full perf jacket and pants and a regular jacket. I also purchased the optional back protector, knee, elbow, hip and shoulder pads. Vanson prices have risen quite a bit over the last 4 years but if I ever have to replace them, I’ll buy Vanson again. I’ve often wondered why Vanson zippers do not zip the full 360 degrees. For such a high quality and expensive suit, you expected better than just a half–zip :mad.
In case you haven’t noticed, Vansons tend to be quite stiff, especially the non-perfed jacket.
