1pc Leather

Alright guys -

I was going to get a Dainese Laguna Seca 1pc suit but then I started looking into Alpine's RC-1 and the BKS suit. I here good things about all three of them and tried them all on. The question I have is which one is the bang for your buck high quality suit. They all feel good. The BKS feels alittle weird. The Alpine and Dainese feel really really good.

Fit ?
Protection ?
Compatible with other brands of gloves and boots ?
Best for the money ?

All input would be most appreciated.
Thanks -

Syed Custom leathers.....perfect fit no matter what your size. BEST bang for the buck by far. if you want a suit that'll last you through the years with great protection, there's no other option. i know some guys who have had their Syed suit for over 10 years and still using them til this day. that should say a lot about their product.

i've crash tested my Syed suit twice...no holes or rips, just the normal scuffing.

A wreck, or crash, is different in EVERY case. Posting up on a forum stating your suit held up in one crash or the other, is wasted work. Good for public opinion or selling something. But, at the end of day, crashing is always situation based.

All that said, Pain said it..RC-1

seeing how this is a public forum and the op wanted all input, there is no "wasted work" Mr. master of the obvious.

For trackdays in Texas/Oklahoma, I say the Komodo K-XP suit (I love mine).
The suit offers more protection than ANY suit out there for our abrasive tracks with less than perfect surfaces and run-off. If we had perfect surfaces like Barber then I would get Komodo K-FX.

I have the Dainese Laguna Seca, and it is very comfortable, and crashes well (1 so far).

Don't get me wrong, it felt good but it felt loose in a few spots.
