Alpinestars, Dianese, AG, Joe Rocket. Start with those 4.

I have the Joe Rocket two piece. I couldn't be happier! Alpinestars was my first choice, but they aren't cut right to fit me. Follow DLIT's advice and get the brand that fits you best. They all fit differently.

Listen to DLIT. He knows. I've got a Teknic. I like it. Is it the best, no. But it works. Alpinestars are nice.


The most important thing is to make sure it fits properly. Otherwise it's not gonna do you much good. If there shops that sell leathers locally try them on for size there and then buy online for better deal.

If no shops then try to find a place online that will help you get close on a size and will offer a FREE size exchange if it doesn't fit. They should be pretty damn tight.

Try www.sportbiketrackgear.com ....they are good with this sorta stuff.

I like my Frank Thomas for the fit, but I am having some stitching issues around the zipper area

Newenough.com also has a pretty sweet exchange policy, and is very helpful when you ask them for fitment advice.

I bought my leathers from them, having never tried a suit on before. They got it right the first time. All I did was send them my tux measurements from a recent wedding.

I have the same suit, but with gunmetal/white/black.

I like it, never been to the track with it yet.
