After you get it, I'd love to hear what you think about stitch quality, general construction/cut quality, fit and finish, etc.

Sounds great, though. Get that, a set of pucks, and a track day and you're good to go.
yeah, right?

i'm def. gonna look into those.

Even if you have to buy all your own armor and a set of knee pucks, thats still a full suit for 400 bucks. Not too bad. Also depends on the leather.... what kind? Probably not kangaroo...
yes
and
yes.

here's it's description..

1.4-1.5mm thick drum dyed top-grain cowhide leather for excellent abrasion resistance

Removable CE approved armor at knees, shoulders, and elbows.

Removable high density spine protector

Chest padding uses memory foam technology borrowed from back protectors

Pre-curved sleeves for proper riding position

Dual stitched main seams for excellent tear resistance

Nylon stitching

Reflective kevlar patches with 3M Scotchlight technology over chest padding, back, and upper arms for high visibility at night.

Zippered vents at armpits and on the back to keep the rider cool

Schoeller Keprotec with Dupont Kevlar(R) at crotch, on inner arms, and behind the knees for perfect fit and ease of movement

Genuine YKK zippers throughout

Full circumferential zipper at waist allows the jacket to be removed from pants and makes the suit legal on all race tracks

Non-removable hip pads

Leather stretch panels on shoulders, at lower back, and above the knees

Mesh lining

Velcroes for attaching knee pucks are sewn on

Two outside pockets and one inside chest pocket

Lightly padded race style collar

The suits are race-legal and can be used on all racing tracks as well as for street riding.
