just bought a set of strike II 2 piece suit about a month ago. very comfortable. especially now that it's broken in some. my first set of leathers, but went to many stores to try on other brands. the workmanship seems to be very good.

Thanks for yout input. I'm thinking of getting a one piece myself but I havent decided which brand. The CG store is near my house and they say they'd repair if anything goes wrong so that's a big plus for me. Addionally I don't want to expend too much money since it's a track day thing, and I'm only going to use a few times a year...

Thanks again.

-1 here for the Strike II 1-piece suit. Too binding when on the bike (hard to get my knees out), the velcro patches for the pucks aren't big enough to put the pucks where they will work best, no pucks are included even though they are shown in the picture (Cycle Gear), and some of the stitching has already started coming loose after one day.

<--- Makes me look almost as fat as rrwantr .

I liked my Hondaline (Believe it was made by Fieldsheer) brand suit better...... it was about the same catagory but lasted a long time.
