Help me decide which suit to buy!

SO I've narrowed my choices to the following suits.

AGV Sport Viper, one piece

Fieldsheer Flex, one piece

Spidi NRG, two piece.

I can get either one for around the same price, I've heard the fieldsheer fit stocky builds best, if that's true it may not fitme properly , I have a semi athletic build.

If your an athletic build the Spidi would be your best bet IMO. They tend to size small and fit better on leaner people from what I've seen. Fieldsheer does have a more "general body type" fit for stocky people..... like me!!

I was told by an instructor when I first started riding/racing... "Get the best equipment you can afford and make sure it fits."

If I had'a listened to him my right knee would probably be in alot better shape after a nasty highside in '08. Bottom line is make sure it fits correctly or the suit itself will beat the out of you when you go down.

They are the top of the line suits from last year. And I asked the sales guy what if they don't fit, since most companies don't allow returns or exchanges on closeouts but he said I could exchange it once if it doesn't fit me.

The fieldsheer Flex is also in closeout in a couple of places.
