You can always take a road trip to the Chicago suburbs. There is a dainese store in Schaumburg, Il.

I am a big dainese fan. I currently own a dainese Laguna seca suit that I bought used off Craigslist. The guy had crashed on it once but was still perfectly fine Just scratches. I crashed on it twice already and got an inch and a half tear on my right shoulder on the second crash (90+ mph) is where the shoulder protector is located so I keep riding in it since the rest of the suit is still in one piece. The next suit I get is definitely going to be a dainese. Gloves I stick with held for their rep. My held loves have also outlasted 3 crashes

^ Even Held outsources many of it's products to China. From the last articles I've read, the outsourced stuff finds it's way back to Germany for final inspection.

Held products are awesome, I don't care if they were made in BFE.

Any specific reason why you don't use Dainese gloves? I just feel weird using 3 different brands for some reason.....maybe it's just the uniformity that stuck with me after the military.

99% of the stuff you wear is made in China, and brazilian cowhide. Nothing wrong with that. They are still great quality jackets and will still be my next choice in gear if their jackets fit me, they run weird in size since they go off Japan sized people haha

They are kind of weird but not really hard to match your size For example a Large US 44 would be a 46 Japanese / XL US 46 would be 56 / XxL US 48 would be 58 Japanese what you want to consider is the waist line type of jacket you prefer

A thin waist line that is right at the edge of your pants line kind like the Dianese style cut Would be the J826 But if you want .a jacket that pass that line with a few inches ie would reach pass the top portion of pants belt for example would be the GMX Motion or the T- Raps ( jacket with 2 Air bags ) you can check them all with videos at sportbiketrackgear

Cool thanks Moe. I will probably get a new jacket next year after the season, my Icon Overlord is still in great shape. Though it needs a bath really bad lol


I just love the RS style, and of course their top suits are amazing. I forget who it was that wrecked in one doing 100+ and slid on his back down a straightaway and the suit was hardly even worn.

Well I use dainese suits because of the quality and IMO they have the better looking suits. I was going to get some dainese gloves, but my roomate has a pair (don't remember what model) and I didn't quite liked the way the felt. Maybe because they were still semi new and stiff, idk. Then I got a nice deal on a pair of held from a friend. And I love the way the feel, super comfortable. And like I said 3 crashes later they are now ready to be replaced only because the stitching between the one of the fingers is coming loose. I guess I can get them stitched back on but I really want the phantoms . Plus the quality of their materials is outstanding. I do use however dainese boots.

Stu,
You're body shape would have zero issues with RST. I, on the other hand, have to bust my ass to keep the weight down and if I gain too much I quickly get "out of fit" for my RST.

Danny Eslick crashed at the Daytona race @ 190 mph. The jacket is on display at Motoliberty Dallas. It looks in good shape still!
