Anyone familiar with Kobe leathers?

Does anyone have any experience with Kobe leather suits? Are they well made? Do they hold up? I never heard of them until recently. Thanks!

Re: Anyone familiar with Kobe leathers?

How late am i on this one.....?????

I have a Kobe Carbonstar onepiece suit. Average fit. (doesn't run small or large) with quality zippers and finish. It's 2 years old. No cracking or unusual wear. Never been down, so i can't help ya out with that info.....

Tons of CF protection and seems to stay really clean with hanging in the sunlight and spraying with Fabreeze once a month during the summer....

I think you'll be pleased.

I knew of a guy in the area that had a kobe jacket that he went down 3 times in and it never wore through the leather! Good sh*t I would say.
