Good suit, needs knee velcro
Overall, satisfied with the suit. Mine was well built (it seems from the reviews, not all are), and had no issues.
Just wish it had a velcro on the knees, instead my leather tailor has to put them on. And it seems that it's designed so the pants are on the outside of your boots, which is a safety hazard on the track. Tailor will be fixing that, too.

Nice suit for the money!
The suit itself is pretty nice. I wish it had a bit more perforation for warmer riding and it has no pockets, which can make keeping your wallet, house keys and so on with you a chore. I got a size 44 and it fits me like a glove at 6'2" and 175lbs. I think it would still fit fine down to 160lbs or up to 185. I have a fairly athletic build, those with bigger bellies should probably think about the next size up than what they would normally wear.
My only other complaint is that the pant legs aren't wide enough to be pulled over full race boots, but they're so large that tucking them in can create pressure points until you get the folds just right. Once you've got them folded right, all is well though. Definitely a nice road riding suit for the money. No velcro for knee pucks, but those are for track use anyway (and you could always have some velcro panels sewn in if you didn't want to get another suit).

Good value for the price
Jacket fit good, pants a bit on the large size. Would be great if it were possible to mix and match pieces.

What a smoking deal!
Where do I start. Of course I was a little skeptical about buying an off the race suit, not that I have a strange body type, but the thought of not being able to try it on. Revzilla's no hassle return policy put me at ease, I figured the most I could lose was the return shipping. On to the good stuff.
A great fit, I didn't really expect it to be so good. I'm 6' and 195 lbs and usually wear a 34 waist pant with a 30" inseam. The size 44 fits perfect, the pant length is plenty long to cover my boot while crouched on the bike. The jacket fits a little tighter than expected, but once its all zipped up its quite comfortable.
The sleeves are just right, I typically wear a size 16 dress shirt with 34/35 sleeves. The neck feels a little large, but my last set had a semi-raised collar.
No saggy butt. So many suits (including my last one) made you look like you had a load in your pants.
The leather finish is top notch, zippers work well and velcro around the sleeves tightens well. The lettering looks much more professional in person than in the pictures on the internet.
Around the pant waist the connection is a single U clip and a single snap button. The U clip immediately fell off the pant and onto the floor before I even got the pant on. Its possible the rivet broke during construction, the pant fits fine without the clip but then its just relying on the single snap button. Not a deal breaker for me.
Unlike a video I found online covering the suit, the bottoms of the pant legs Do Not have zippers. A bummer, but again not a deal breaker for what I paid.
Final thoughts: This seems to be the best deal going for what I paid. The item was in stock and ready to ship, returnable and suited my needs. I could have paid $1200+ for a custom suit through some of the big names, not that I don't dream of owning one someday, just not ready to drop that kind of coin yet.
