RS Taichi if you care about quality and awesomeness
Spidi if you don't care about anything

I've owned both so I speak the truth

Finally! Thank you.

I was leaning more towards the Taichi. How do they fit? No store has them here so I can't try one on.

I don't have the jacket but the race suit and it fits like glove right off the rack. I suppose that all depends on your size and body type but RS Taichi makes some premium shit!

If you want the pimp chit, get a Dainese, son. Never been crash tested but has survived through 4+ years of rain, bugs, gravel, sun, etc etc. With normal cleaning (HP to clean, leather conditioner afterwards) it still looks pretty new IMO. Fit and finish is 2nd to none, limited due to price, most if not all have a zipper to attack pants, and it is Doctor approved. What more can you ask for?
