Track Leather Break in time

I just got my JR 1 piece.

Tried it on, and everything fit great.

My question is how long did it take for you to feel like your suit was "broken in"

Wear it around your house as much as possible before your trackday. Also throw it in the dryer with no heat and a pair of tennis shoes.

Yeah, sweat in it for a few hours and you'll be set. Please air it out good before the next trackday or else pit at the far end... thanks.

I wore mine out on a couple forest rides and Wednesday night rides. By the time I finally did my first trackday, I was already used to them and they were well broken in.
