Input on Alpinestar Octane suits?

I am interested in purchasing a Alpinestar Octane suit. It is one of the only suits I have found that is offered in all or almost all white. I am thinking of the sun bake factor. Does anyone have any opinions or experience with this suit? Does anyone know of a good suit offered in mostly white?

Hey man give me a chance:

Fieldsheer, all their suits come in white and they all look to have mondo perforations! I hear good thinks about their customer service too.
The Rufus is Kangaroo hide, the Flex is essentially the same suit in cowhide if you are wondering.

If you have weird dimensions (or value a great fitting suit) there is Syed. You choose perforations and color.

The fieldsheer Rufus isn't too bad but a little more than I can swing right now. The Syed isn't bad but I am sure I can't afford a custom suit.

What about the Flex ($699.95) or the Revo ($499.95), both come in white. Just click on the other colors link when you are looking at the suit.

To answer one of your other questions, I have never heard a single bad thing about Alpinestars, I regard them highly.

Here is another option: ($499.99)
Tekinic Chicane. It comes in a white/gray/black color.

The Chicane isn't bad looking at all for the price. How is the Technic quality?

I have an older model chicane jacket, and it held up very well in my slow lowside a few weeks back. The perfed leather moves a lot of air too.
