Yeah. Nice looking leathers. Might be plain, but wont look out of place on any bike. You soon get sick of looking at the flashy ones to

Yeah, trying to avoid the power ranger look :-) Not for me :-) I got a chance to take a look at this product a few weeks ago at a motorcycle show in Toronto...seems to be really good quality....

Had mine for probably a year and 1/2 now, can't fault them.

Being summer leathers they are no good for cold weather (I wear thermals etc under them, fleece over them sometimes) but they are fantastic in the summer, the ventilation is brilliant. Spent whole days in them out riding etc and they are really comfortable.

The stitching is all still fine, I wear them every time I'm on the bike (I do a lot of commuting on it), no complaints!

I also went with them for the no power ranger type thing, but with a black helmet, gloves, boots and those I probably do lol!

Just out of interest, how much do they cost over there?

Wow, that's great feedback...thanks...I was wondering what the ventilation would be like...hearing you talk about how good the ventilation is pretty much solidifies the decision for me. That's great....

So I guess it is that non-leather material in the crotch and underarm areas that is doing the trick? I don't recall seeing too much conventional type venting on the suit. I didn't realize that material would be as breathable as you seem to be saying it is...

The price I will be paying is $999 Cnd...not bad but probably not fantastic either...I am more than willing to pay this for them though because most other suits that I have found are a little too loud for my liking...the style and quality combined is pretty appealing to me...and now to top it all off it seems that there is good function to go along with this...:-) Thanks again for the info...

How much did you pay?

Cheers

Dainese, for me, has been too race flashy. The stuff you pictured looks good. Probably quality stuff.

Np, glad to help.

The non-leather stuff is a stretchy breathable (Air passes right through it like it wasn't there) synthetic fabric.

I took a quick couple of shots, not sure how well you can see it but the 2nd shot is the right arm pit area, theres a few holes in the leather in the armpit plus the stretchy stuff for ventilation.

I paid about 450 / US$ 880 / CA$ 1000 for it.
