I searched all over and decided on Fieldsheer Flex for the features(full perf,aero hump, good armor,etc.), looks and price.
Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited was selling them at the same price as the best I could find on the internet AND I could try them on! He gave advice on fit and then got the color I wanted with the assurance that if I wasn't happy he would make it right.

Go to Motorcycles Unlimited... you won't be sorry. There is a reason everyone here says they are awesome!

Go see Patrick and he can set you up. I have personally been wearing Fieldsheers for years. Great price, great product. I have crash tested mine 3 times and it passed perfectly every time.

See Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. Fieldsheers survived my crashes until the EMTs started cutting to get them off me.

fieldsheer flex ftw!!!! i've crash tested my flex suit about 7 times already....3 times around 60mph on the big bike....and 4 other times on the mini, some speeds up to 45mph

go see patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited, and talk to him or suzanne about leathers. every body is shaped differently, and not all suits are made the same. they will guide you into which suit fits you best. Patrick will also get you VERY competitive prices, and you won't have to haggle on the phone and wait for shipping if things aren't right the first time.

not sure if you're askin me.....but i dont have much knowledge of suits. i've used frank thomas and fieldsheer. my fieldsheer is definately a step up in quality and comfort. patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited would be a lot more educated in leathers, as he rents them and sells them.

yeah, leathers aren't like reg clothes, i wouldn't buy something unless i could try it on in person. you also gotta remember, to save some room for a back protector....because if you're riding and need leathers.....you need a back protector.

unless you can try on a AGV suit somewhere with the exact same size/model....i'd stay away.

suit sizes differ from different models as well.....for example...the fieldsheer revo and fieldsheer flex have 2 VERY different fits, even if they were both size 46 or something.

AGV Leathers. My kid has crash tested these, once at 80mph+ and a slow low side. No road rash on his body in either accident. Great leathers for the price.
