AGV Sport Willow One-Piece Leather Suit
Love this suit!
Just bought this suit.. Fits great.. larger than other suits.. A 48 Teknic was slightly too small, but this suit in a 48 provides a little room and fits perfect. Haven't gotten to ride in it yet, but so far I love it..

Solid entry level suit
*Full Disclosure - I didn't get this suit brand new
I used this suit when I went to CA Superbike and ended up picking up one second hand from a local track day organizer. Airflow is good the front half of the suit has decent perforation which helps in humid climates. My only beef with the suit is that the race hump seems to have minimal structure so it lost its shape fairly quickly, now I look like Quasimodo. If you're looking at getting into track riding it's a solid suit to get your feet wet at a great price point.

I wore this suit on track. It was fitted nicely, but after a while you can feel it's breaking out and getting slightly loose. I am 5' 6" 180 lbs wearing 56. I guess 54 would be a better fit. The other problem with bikers at my height and weight is the sliders positioning. They tend to get slightly off position, but since you are wearing the race boots, it will help the sliders to remain at the right positions. I had a low side crash and the suit helped me to get away from any injury. I am happy with the suit indeed.

decent suit bad zipper
this is my first one piece suit. I saw a review on webbikeworld.com and he gave it a good review and i liked the features for the price and according to his and revzilla's review the sizing was relaxed and over all a good buy. When i recieved the suit everything was good and the sizing was a little long in the arms and legs but perfect from my neck to torso so i'm cool with the fit. On the bike it is very comfortable. Now i only have 1 issue. The main zipper didn't close the seam properly so the first ride the front came unzipped, luckily i was able to use the second zipper to open then close it. It looks like the zipper pull just needs to be replaced. Not that big of a deal and hopefully under warranty. Other then that i like the suit alot, like i said it's comfortable and all the other features except the zipper i feel are very quality. The ventilation and armor are good and there was enough space for me to add a back protector. Overall a good suit minus the zipper.

Excellent for price
This seems an excellent suit for the price. Since I am not a serious racer, I have tried/purchased suits on the low-end price range. I also have an Alpinestars CR ($600 sale price), size 42 fitting quite appropriately snug (see my review of this suit...).
Material and stitching seem top notch. Suit is also breathable, great in warmer-weather riding. Sizing chart is a size too large - I'm 6'1" very slim 32" waist, 165lb, 38" chest. I started with a 46 and had to return it for a 44. Pretty satisfied with it, except it looks a little funny from the back #as many race suits do#. There is a lot of extra material - suit fits very snug around the ankles up to the thigh, across the abs and chest, and zipped up around the neck. But it bulges huge in the back around the hips, waist, and up through the back hump. The material tents on the back, making me look like I'm wearing a backpack from my shoulders to just below my gluteus. It's a little amusing how much more exaggerated this is than other suits I have seen. As seen in the pictures, though, it is VERY sharp from the front. Make sure if you win races or take pictures that you face the camera!
This suit compares quite nicely with the aforementioned Alpinestars. The lack of removable liner is made up by extremely sharp frontal appearance, double zipper #from top and from bottom#, and lower price.
Please note that because the liner is not removable, you may wish to consider a riding suit to absorb sweat and/or body oils. The two piece MSR or one piece Alpinestars, RevIt, or Held suits are ideal, but a simple, snug-fitting cotton blend pant/shirt combination may work just great.

inexpensive and seems nice
this is the first suit I ever bought so I don't have any experience with full leather suits. To me it seems nice for the price. The fit is good. I'm 5'10", 185 lbs., 35" waist. Got a size 44. The suit looks good to me seems more relaxed fitting then some others. Shipping was quick durring the holidays
