I would like todo the next noob day and if I'm gonna rent leathers for lets say $100, I might as well buy my own for $249 more. Well you can do the math. Not a bad price considering they are retailing at $499.99

Plus I wanted to get a leather jacket anyway

I love win win situations

THANKS FOR THE GOOD INFO TONY

The jackets on the two piece suits from fieldsheer are usually a few inches shorter than normal jackets. Just something to keep in mind if you plan on wearing the jacket by it's self on the street. Two pieces are much easier to get in and out of though and they provide sufficient protection in most situations. Fieldsheers are great suits for the money.

True...I was actually planning on doing this because I would rather support local business first vs. Nonlocal website. Just didnt think anyone would beat this price. But hey you never know till you ask.

I have a Fieldsheer 2 pc myself. It is what I started out with. 2 wrecks later, it still is in good shape. I currently ride in a Fieldsheer 1 pc, but I have been thinking of getting a new suit.

i'm pretty sure patrick can get you in that suit for the same price, if not better.....and you get the satisfaction of knowing the suit will fit, instead of playing the guessing game.

I was in a wreck in my fieldsheeer. Great suit but jacket is definetly too short to use by itself. great choice. get a liner too. Mine stinks to high because it has a non removable liner.

How awesome a price are we talking? I was going to wait until next year to get a leather suit, but if the deal is that good I may stop by this weekend.

By the way, I love the FS mesh jacket and pants that I bought there. I just need to find a way to keep the pants from creeping up. At the end of my commute the knee armor ends up more like thigh armor.

thread revival - sorry, but i know how most of hate the whole "this thread again? why not try searching next time, a.h.!" so i did.

anyhow, i found a sick price on this suit as well (i guess an online place still has a few laying around). how do they fit? i bought a 2-piece FS radar (size 44) and the jacket is a tad tight (even in the riding position) and the pants are pretty loose. so going up would enlarge the pants, but the jacket would fit. blah blah... the sizing chart says the 42 size suit is what i need, but i already have a 44 2-piece and it don't really fit. would a 46 in the revo fit me? i'm 6', ~200#, ~45" chest, ~35-36" waist. i drink beer, but am not fat. just a little soft in the mid section. thanks fellas.

Well,
Motorcycles Unlimited is still the place to go for fieldsheer.
The reason we reccommend them is because they will take all of your measurements and get you the right suit the first time.
Their prices are very competitive and it's always nice to support local business that support us.

yea, apparently Motorcycles Unlimited is having some sort of sale. my buddy already bought a radar 2-piece (46) online, but the pants eat him alive. i just can't really afford the price at Motorcycles Unlimited (at least last time i checked). i'm a "beer budget" kinda guy... why i bought used gloves and am working on getting a set of used boots. we'll see... i just don't wanna waste anybody's time. you know?
