http://www.topgearleather.com/c=Up0Z...ther-Suit.html

i saw this and was like "kickass this will look cool with my black bike, just paint some black strips on it and i can be the bee"

but does it have what it should have and wonder about the fit

i want to drink, but only to kill a certain few brain cells and i don't care how many i have to take out to get to them.

and of you want colors, spartan leathers lets you pick your own color scheme for not much more

They use really thick leather, and that's good, but how it's all stiched together is just as important, plus like Jason said, there are no certifications advertised on their armour. I'd try to get an experts opinion whose had a chance to look at them before buying myself, don't skimp on protection!

(By expert I'm talking about spyder leatherworks or some other leather repair shop that has a lot of experience with a wide variety of suits)

Do some more research, perhaps find the manufacturers site.

In this ad you linked to, it doesn't list any CE ratings. That would be a requirement.

FWIW - I have never heard of this brand.

i've been looking at that site too for something for the track. they all mention having keprotek as opposed to mesh, which, after that thread from plotts has me moving away from mesh.

but good point about the lack of certification...
