I like my Radar and you can get it for 475.00.

I haven't been down in it yet so I can't offer anything regarding that.

Pony up for the Syeds. Just don't get carried away in picking colors.

A friend got a set from them and it's very nice.

I'm sporting a Fieldsheer flex on recommendation of Motorcycles Unlimited. Fit is much better for me than my old a* (subjective), and at least two of the guys at Motorcycles Unlimited have crashed fieldsheer suits "successfully."

Noah got Mike's Fieldsheer suit when he bought the SV from him. Not sure if Mike had been down in them before Noah wrecked, but Noah has been down in them twice on the concrete and I flew into the grass yesterday in the same suit and the leather has puntured at all. Was a very comfortable suit for me to wear all day. I am not the most knowledgable guy on leathers, but that is just what I know from riding and crashing in the Fieldsheer yesterday. The stretch panel behind the right knee did "fail" yesterday, but that is a quick and rather cheap fix.
