So, I took Michael up on this offer. I've bought a bunch of Veloce gear in the past and knew that the quality would be top notch. And the price was just too good to pass up.

The suit arrived yesterday. I'm a 44 chest and 32 waist so I ordered an XL jacket and medium shorts. And they both fit me like a custom suit, so to speak. Never one to open up a new toy and set it aside, I suited up with the shorts and jeans, strapped on the jacket (with four adjustments on the arms, main zipper, and a generous belt for the back protector with velcro ends that looks and works very much like a kidney belt), and headed out. I really love the hand inserts with thumb holes - makes getting gloves on much easier!

This is just an all-around terrific suit. I had no problems with fit, no issue with ride comfort, and felt like a well protected super hero on my 954. This is going to be a hell of a suit for hot weather when I want to wear street clothes, and just as good for cold weather under full gear for added protection and warmth (although I may have to remove the elbow and shoulder armor in the riding gear). Overall, this is a great suit, amazing quality, and a price that's just too good to be true. This is one time when the old adage, "You get what you pay for" isn't true. In this case, you get 5x times what you pay for. Here's a snapshot. Don't mind the camera phone quality or the white knees (the sun just came out from its Winter hibernation here in western NY). Thank you Michael! Veloce has another home run here!



P.S. Michael, my wife attacked me after she saw me in this suit so I'll be wearing it to bed from now on :001_smile: But she also rides and wants to know when you'll be making them for women!

this is a great jacket, I already crash tested it a few weeks ago while racing supermoto, other than a couple little scuffs on the elbow pad that are hardly noticable it is still in perfect condition and ready to go again. I went down in the dirt section so I would guess the scuffs would be a little more if it had been the pavement section but this is a great deal for a great product.

That's what I was thinking. You'd better be pretty well equipped or you're in trouble.

Ken - Thanks for the feedback! I am glad to hear you like the jacket and shorts and that they are a great fit.

BTW - These line of products are unisex, there is no separate type for women. You can order a different size or colour pretty much. We decided against Pink, Light Blues or patronizing colours for women - so it will look pretty much like your's. Your wife gets a second purchase W/T discount if she ever needs one.

Mike - Okay, that was too funny!!!!!

Matt - Glad to hear you are still up and about mate - AVE!

Jim - Shorts are perforated... just pee!
