Anyone using them???

Good, bad, just okay. I am in the market for a 1 or 2 pc. suit, and I am thinking that this MAY be the way to go for me.

Let me know *if you are or have used them* what you think of them.

Thanks

I have a Syed 2 piece, that has the perferated leather. Have not need it for the protection yet, but it fits perfect and you can still move around. Because it is made to fit you. If you can get the money I would recommend that you get them, best purchase that I have made that is motorcycle related.

Selmer, that's cool. I am thinking of going there and picking something out. When you bought yours did you just order it ... or did you go to the store and talk to them about it, get fitted, and go jump through hoops? Or was it really easy?
What collar did you get on yours ... and I hope you don't mind me asking (you can answer in a PM) what did you end up paying for it?

My best friend wears 'em. Almost had to get a custom suit anyway, due to his size. He raves about it - it's very comfortable, stays nice and cool when he's riding, looks good, and fits him perfectly. His only complain thus far is that the red dye bleeds on him a bit when he sweats.

They make really good suits.
But
If you can get an off-the-rack suit to fit I would not pay for custom. Any of the top brands will sell you a better package for the same money (better protection and materials).

Money wise yes, but materials and protection wise I would go with Syed. Yeah it is more money, but you can't pay enough for protection.

I think top end Alpinestars (for example) offers more protection than SYED. SYED has internal CE approved armor, pretty low tech vs. new external armor and materials big brands use.
How much $ does SYED spend in R&D each year vs. Dainese (for example). :)
I still say if you can fit in it, big name suit is better.
