Where could I find the best deal on the best quailty suit's made. Any advice?

Would be willing to go to two peice with zipper to attach upper to lower.

I've never researched this before and looking for some help to save time. Thank's

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

I got mine custom made at Vanson's factory in Massachusetts.

www.vansonleathers.com

We had about 30 guys from a bike club go up there and order with cash all at the same time.. We ended up with about 40% off the suits.. Mine total was about $4,000 but with the discount it worked out to be about $2,300... This suit has every pad known to man!!

MAY I ADD IT WEIGHS A TON ABOUT 15LBS IT'S ABOUT 3.5MM THICK LEATHER

I ordered my Joe Rocket one piece from MAW. It was on clearance special, half price, because it was last years model. Haven't crashed with these leathers yet (fingers crossed) but they look plenty good to me.

WD...I have a 2 piece that zips together Vanson...I believe that the 2 piece are the best all around leathers because they have many functions, not just a 1 piece good for RoadRacing...You spend all that money on a custom 1 piece and after a few years its too small or too big also, its a bitch to get on and off!!!

Just my .02 cents...

WD...I have a good magazine article on buying the right suit. I think it's in Performance Bike or Two Wheels. They did a comparison between the major suit manufacturs and also tips on wheather to get a 1 piece or 2.
I'll try and find it and post back...I used it when I was deciding on replacement leathers after my crash. Decided to go 2 piece Spidi. Awesome and the $$$ wasn't bad. $875.00

Crotch Rocket is right about the size changes. I had to drop about 15 lbs. to fit in off the shelf leathers. Have since put a few pounds back on and dem one piece leathers about wear me out just getting them on & off. When will they make off the shelf clothing in Barney Rubble sizes??

I was hoping to find something cheaper,

I might have to go two peice.

Great looking set of leather's 12Rpilot. Look great with bike,

I have the same problem, Barney Rubble build but it's in a tall Barney size<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

Check out the First Gear 1.5 mm 2 piece zip together.

I've been extremely happy with mine. Good ventilation and a nice warm liner.

I didn't go one piece because all the one pieces I tried on strangled my unmentionables. Plus, one pieces are a pain in the ass if you stop for lunch/dinner.

My wife has my unmentionables. Sometimes I get to take them on my rides, but only if there are no females with us. On this day she kept them:
