Opinions on AGV leathers?

In the market for a 1pc at a reasonable price and found the AGV Sport Forza for $344. Could not find many reviews out there on how they have held up in a crash or the overall quality, anybody have them or any info?

I had a member that i trust their judgment on here tell me to avoid AGV Sport, they recommended Fieldsheer over AGV Sport for less expensive leathers that are off the rack. A buddy of mine has a set as well and after using them 3 or 4 times is going to get something better as well and has been looking at Fieldsheer too.

I let a buddy of mine borrow my AGV Sport Aegis suit and of course he wadded up the suit in T2 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) in Level 4 (mid-pack kinda guy). It had some issues with the stitches coming apart between the leather and that soft material in the inner thigh but that's about it. Nice that my buddy paid for half of my new Komodo K-XP suit

I just bought a 2-piece AGV Forza suit yesterday for $299 on parts411. Hopefully it will be decent.

I would steer away from them. you can get much better leathers for the price. The Fieldsheer is a great suit. I have one and really like it. I have even crashed in it with no issues. It is not quite teh quality of my Spidi, but I would highly reccommend a Fieldsheer to anyone.

Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited can get you smokin deals on those too

I would hardly say they are "done" because there was rash on the left thigh, left arm, and shoulders with nothing resembling a burn through or hole. Just that the stitches in that soft material to make the inner thighs more flexible. But it was only a few stitches, nothing more than an inch.
