track suits

whats the scoop on leathers?

I have an A* jacket i can zip the pants to, but im finding some Frank Thomas and other track suits for almost the same price as the A* pants.

What are your recommendations on brands? Alpinestars, AGV, Frank Thomas, Joe Rocket, Fieldhseer, Dianese... they all do full leathers but have varying prices. I need something budgetable and at a minimum i can get some A* pants to zip to my jacket. At this point i dont really care if its 1 or two piece. I was hoping originally to just buy the A*'s separately but i figure ill just keep the jacket as my street summer jacket and go ahead and get some track leathers..

I'n my experience the Astar pants don't fit well.
I'd go with a one piece for track use anyways.
I'd recommend the Joe Rocket or the Cortech Latigo. Both are great suits and are comparable quality wise to more expensive suits.

Patrick sold me a Joe Rocket GPX suit and I love it.

Price was great and it's really comfy. It's crashed tested by me too!

It doesn't have a speed hump but over all it's a great suit.
