If you want it, get it. You don't need to be a track day junkie to own and wear a 1 piece suit. Nothing wrong with being safe!

I love the bio-hazard on that thing- it's wicked.

Looks great.

I have a hard time with the high waist thing- i need it to reduce bulk- but it makes me VERY uncomfortable with how the zippers tend to flex- I need one mid rise- but low rise- those damn things hurt because they just sit on my hip- they aren't held up by shape- they are held up simply because the belt isn't big enough to go over the hip and then I have what 20 lbs of leather hanging off them. It's miserable for long rides. barf.

I have two 1 piece suits. One of these days I'll do a track day. For now, I use them on high speed canyon rides. (Not my bike in the photo)

1pc vs a comparable 2pc (WITH a quality full circumference zipper stiched into the leather), there's really not all that much difference in protection. Chances of injury occurring because the two pieces separated is extremely slim if the zipper is well constructed.

Two-piece is much handier for street use, and a lot easier to get a good fit by mixing/matching bottoms and tops.

To Dallas' point, "better" is fine, but I've literally NEVER seen a crash report talking about injury from a full-zip suit coming apart. Presumably it can happen, but I don't see grounds for thinking one-piece is better from a safety perspective.

Yeah, yeah, pro racers all use one-piece - different requirements. They have to be able to move around on the bike with as little extra drag/bulk as possible. They spend *days* in their suits. And they are custom tailored for each rider. That's not what you are describing as your scenario.

Completely agree. If I were in the market for a street suit right now, I'd go 2pc for added convenience & comfort.
1pc can be a little awkward when walking around and they're typically cut for a more agressive seating position than a comparable 2pc version.





I do love my 1pc Dainese Redline with the double chest zips, though. WAY more comfortable when walking around than my old single zip.
No more showing off my "camel humps", crotch adjustments or singing soprano while walkin around.

Rocked a two piece and onesey both on street and track, I.prefer the onesey. To me a one piece just moves better mostly because there is no zipper conecting top amd bottom. Dont get me wrong a two piece will work just fine, I tested mine a few years back big time. Get the suit wear it a few times if your not sold then eBay it for a profit because your getting it so cheap.

Based on price alone I'd hop all over the LS Pro. Got mine "used" from MotoWheels only because it was returned due to being a size too big/small for the original buyer without tags (which they put new ones on before shipping it to me) and thought $850 was a good deal.

i bought the suit!......here is a new one...

Dainese Laguna Seca Pro Leather Suit Black/Magnesium from SportbikeTrackGear.com

i can not stand up all the way (kind of like a cave man) or my balls get squashed...but the riding position is very comfortable...rode back 40 miles on the freeway with the suit on and felt like rossi...lol...

looks like i will be using this exclusively for twisties and canyons if i do not want to be stared at...

I have the same suit. Crashed in it and it held up well and is easily repairable. Fits relatively thin guys well.
