I am a new rider and live in south florida. I am using mesh pants and jacket at the moment but would like to upgrade to leather. I have been thinking about just getting a 2 piece leather jacket and sticking with the mesh pants (its rarely cold here) during summer. I am also open to the idea of a 1 piece suit but the sizes just do not seem to fit my body.

First let me say that I am a big guy. I am 6'2", about 250-270. I wear 38-40 x 32-34 pants (it seems 39x33 would fit perfect, so I go up or down depending on brand)

My chest is 52". my waist is 43" (thats what the tape says, but I wear 38-40 waist in pants comfortably), my inseam is 32", my thighs are 27"


my sizes don't seem to match up to any one size. Given those measurments should I just go with a 2 piece suit instead of a 1 piece?

contact sportbiketrackgear.com they're a member here and have good prices and service. mesh is not really all that protective, compared to leather. a "summer" style perf suit, one or two peice will be good. its gunna be hotter than shorts or jeans, bit really only when your stopped.

I understand that leather > mesh

where I'm having an issue is finding leather that fits my dimensions.

newenough has some sizing charts on their site and also has great customer service over the phone. Give them a call if the charts aren't enough. They also have a "large sizes" section.

sportbiketrackgear may provide similar services.
