Need help choosing off the shelf 1pc race leathers

I've narrowed down my choices to:
  • Alpinestars RC-1
  • Teknic Xcelerator


    I'm also interested in:
  • Gericke Celtic Suit (never seen or used one, how do they fit for slim guys?)
  • RS-Taichi
  • Spidi

    (but it seems that nobody carries them here in the states. If you know of any websites that have either Spidi or RS-Taichi suits, post them up.)
Thoughts/experience on any of these suits?

Dainese Bora V fits me the best. Its also super comfortable and I wrecked at about 90MPH and walked away without a single tear in the suit.

Ended up getting a Teknic Xcelerator.

Very happy with it, most comfortable suit I've ever worn!

I purchased a Shift M1 1pc Leather suit. Anyone else ever have one of these? Pro's/Con's? It will be here Thursday, just in time for the track.

I hope I made a good choice. I got it mainly so I could get into Drag racing more with my 10R.
