Cortech Latigo RR One-Piece Leather Suit
This was my first suit and I have been very happy with the comfort and protection so far. I have worn the suit during the hottest times of Texas and never felt like I was going to overheat. I would recommend just a little more back protection but overall the suit is solid.

Best bang for your your buck. Just wore it at my first track day, there were about 5 of us wearing this same suit. Vented incredible well considering it was ridiculously hot and humid. The interior back padding can bunch up when your wearing it half open in-between track sessions so make sure to un-bunch it before putting the top half back on.

Great suit in lower price range
I've been using this suit for the last three months or so. 4 track days in it so far. Very happy with it. I did my first track day in a rented suit - which was fine but I'm glad I went ahead with buying one. This Cortech suit is comfortable, has good ventilation and a really nice style.
Delivery from Revzilla was amazingly quick and I lucked out with the right size.

Fit and finish as described
Suit fits me near perfectly. I am 5'10" 230, barrel chested and this suit is tight in the top (but not at all uncomfortable) and snug everywhere else. Otherwise, just as one would want for a track day suit. A bit short torso-ed and long-legged for my shaped, but again nothing uncomfortable.

Great Suit for the money... With minor issues.
So I ordered the first one-piece suit... Took over a week to get it, and it was damaged upon receiving. I Then submitted the RA request and shipped it back the same day. I have ordered the new one the day after and received the refund for the first and the new suit promptly and quickly(2days). Though the first product was damaged, the service and helpfulness of the Revzilla team made it quick and painless.
OK on to the important part. Sizing, I am a little over 6' 2" 185-190lbs with a 40in chest. I bought the Medium at first. I wanted a snug fit and though the suit was a good fit, the torso length and the sleeve length were WAAAY too short. This made the over all fit of the suit way too tight. I then returned it and purchased the next size up, the Large. The large is much much better and hugs my legs and chest comfortably. The torso length, though still a bit short, was much better and allows me to stand up right more.
Some of the CONS that I have noticed were that the armor in my left elbow/forearm seemed to be "folded" and would not wrap around my elbow/forearm. After some playing with it, I was able to open it up and it is better. Will need further break-in. Along with that, I have noticed that there was some sticky areas in the liner of the suit. It appears to possibly be the glue from the cortech logo on the front of the suit. Could have been the heat that reactivated the glue and it seeped through. The armor does move around a bit when putting the suit on but once its in position, it doesn't move, and stays in place.
All n all, I haven't had any major issues with this suit. I am quite pleased with the amount of safety and features in the suit. Yes this is my first suit but it is what I expected and more. Feels great on the bike.

Good price for what it is
Not for cold weather at all... Fit is a little small but fine once you're on the bike. All in all it's a great suit. Feels sturdy. Worth the cost by a longshot

Great suit for the price...but...
Alright, here's my review of the suit. But first a disclaimer. I just got the suit two days ago, its winter ( it just snowed here yesterday) and I have weird dimensions.
I picked this suit up temporarily for next season as 1pc for my S1000RR. I never liked the feel of a 2pc, I wanted something better than my aging gear, something track day or two worthy and something to just wear while out on a full day of spirited riding.
That being said, the suit is a pretty good piece of gear for the money. Yes it does lack some of the finer details that you would see on a A*'s, Dainese or RS Taichi. The cuffs on both the legs and sleeves aren't finished with a nice stitch or rounded over piece of leather. The leather just ends.... with the liner and leather stitched together.
My suit came with a stain on the back inside liner. From what I can tell its glue from the factory. Not that I care, but its something you wont see on a Dainese out of the factory.
The stitching itself is just nylon, which isn't bad, but Kevlar isn't exactly expensive anymore. But again for the price, I'll let it slide.
Aesthetically, its a very generic looking suit, but it's nice enough that it keeps up with A*'s or the likes. I was a little let down with the blue panels in my suit. The photo's made the blue sections look vibrant and bold. But in reality, the blue sections are more like a navy blue. So without a lot of light, the suit just looks white and black.
The armor seems to decent, hoping to never really test it, but the shoulder pads float around too much. On the test fit the armor kept on folding or moving around on me. It took about 4 tries to get the suit fully on without the shoulder armor pads from folding up on me.
The fit is VERY true to size. If you follow the Cortech size chart in CM, it will be dead accurate. My personal issue is that for being 6 feet tall I needed a 2XL. But my inseam is about an inch shorter than what an average six foot tall man should be. So I have an extra inch or less down by the ankles. However, my upper torso is about an inch longer than average. So when I stood straight up with the suit, I could feel it get tight on the shoulders and down below. But since I have weird dimensions, it happens with any suit I tried on over the years.
Overall I would say, its a pretty good suit for the money. Despite the few shortcomings I found with the suit, for the money you cannot go wrong. I would label it as an intro suit or a casual suit. A suit to wear on a nice hard riding day or a few track days. Anything more than that, I'd would rather get something in the $900+ range.
