Got mine from cycle gear they had a sale 40% off, like the jacket a lot its comfy and feels thicker leather than my a*, but I am very displeased with their gloves I'm on my 3rd set cause the stitching around the velcro comes undone

I have the whole XTI suit I got it at CG and got the gloves for free. They are pretty comfy when you're riding.

FT is cheaper equipment. The stitching will come apart and hopefully it will stay together in a wreck.

My left knee on my lower leathers is coming apart just from friction in knee dragging.

Chances are if you bought it anywhere around here you got it from Cycle Gear as they are exclusive here to FT gear. I have the bottoms, the jacket and the gloves and i love them. The gloves are useless anywhere other than the track due to the restriction of movement with them. But overall I really like them and you cannot beat them for the price. Not to mention CG is very good about standing behind FT gear. I had a older model leather jacket that had zipper problems after 6 months of heavy use. The replaced it with a brand new one no questions asked.

Also from my understanding while FT here is regarded as cheap and low budget, apparently FT is top of the line stuff in the UK.

I have a 2 piece FT suit...would have to check if it's the XTI or not...picked it up used last year and my only complaint after 7 track days is that I WANT a one piece...other than that both pants and jacket have held up well for me...no stitching issues or anything
