Cortech Latigo RR One-Piece Leather Suit
Great for my first full suit
IT took a few hours to loosen the suit up to where I felt fine wearing it, after getting use to the suit I really enjoy wearing it. It fits me like a glove and almost breath to much for me on cool mornings or evenings. Hot summer days its great. I dont know how well it holds up to a crash but I feel it would protect me just fine.

A premium suit that won't break your budget
I just received this suit today and my initial impressions are very positive. I obviously can't speak on the durability but it seems competitive with suits that cost hundreds more. The quality really exceeded my expectations for this price point. I put it on for a brief ride and thought the airflow was excellent. The only area I don't consider to be excellent is the style. I think it's a little too bland/boring, but ultimately I thought it had the best style out of the suits that are in a similar price range. At about 5'10 and 180 pounds the medium is extremely snug. If I was half an inch taller or ten pounds heavier I don't think I would fit. Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with this suit and I'd absolutely recommend it to others.

Comfortable and Safe
This was my first Racing Suit, and I felt very comfortable and safe in the track, It gave me the security to tilt the bike easilier and an excellent behavior with the seat.

Great product for the price.
Let me say, I was skeptical at first when i first saw this on the site for such a price with so many essential features. I met a guy on a ride who had it on ( he had a MED )and asked him a few questions and was sold just by what I saw... a quality no non-sense leather suit. He did say that he should have ordered a size smaller as his was a bit off-shoulder. (He was my stature as well)
Otherwise he was happy.
It was shipped free... I ordered on a Sunday pm and it arrived Tuesday morning! It was bagged in it's own garment bag and shipped in a box. My first impression was the color was vibrant white and the red was subtle but noticeable ;)
I specifically ordered a SMALL although I'm 5-8, 165-170.
I believe a race suit should be hard to get into and out of. I see a lot of guys that say their expensive suits a comfy but they are ill fitting and too big. (It is my experience that a tight suit is better than one that will give you rug burns once you hit the ground and catch on something.)
It is comfy once wrestling it on, but getting my legs in was a challenge. There is WAY TOO MUCH loose material in the legs and my feet (size 9) kept getting caught up in it.. Same for the shoulder. The shoulder protection kept shifting around while putting my arms through.
Once on and zipped up though, it was part of me...everything was where it should be and movement was acceptable. There is a bit of nut tug but the flexible panel down there made it tolerable :)
All in all, I am happy with the purchase so far...maybe an update when I ride with it later. Cheers!

This is my first one piece suit purchased for racing and the occasional ride. The quality of the suit appears to be great. I'm 6ft and have a small, standing upright, I have some nut hug. I don't "fill" the suit completely and the sleeves are maybe an inch too short for my taste. I'm reluctant to move up a size because I have a small frame.
Airflow is great and riding position everything is comfortable. Gear wore up to a few slip ups on the track, but you may want to get hip/thigh protectors. Overall great and affordable.

I bought this after my first time on the track because I was hooked. For the price this suit looks and feels great. I have a small size and am 5'8" 145lbs 31" waist and it is a little big on me in the arms and legs, not length wise just a bit wide for my thin arms and legs. After 2 days on the track some of the accent stitching loosened and came out after i pulled on it but none of the important areas, and the inner lining is kinda loose and gets caught up when trying to put the thing on but those are my only complaints. I wore it once with no shirt on and the perforation worked amazing.

Best bang for the buck, few faults
I cannot give the suit a 5 star review as it had a few scuffs on the leather, a few frayed threads, and the like. It may have been used once & returned, but the uncertainty leads me to keep the review at only 4 stars. Fits great, exactly according to the size chart, the included armor should be adequate for anyone's first dabbles into trackdays & racing. Stretches enough to accommodate larger calves and smaller guts. Armor is not held in the best way so it requires some wiggling to get it to fall into place, but it takes only about 10 seconds each time I put the suit on. Zippers are very high quality. I think I will enjoy this suit for years to come.

One track day down...many more to go!
I have only worn it for one track day, but impressed so far. This is my first track suit, but I have no complaints. I am 6ft, 175 lbs, with a 6'4" arm span. The review put a guy with a similar build in the small, but I had a hard time thinking I would fit into the smallest size. So I ordered and Medium and couldn't be happier. It gave me plenty of room in the knees in a full tuck or corner lean. The gusset in the low back and back of the shoulders makes a huger difference as well. I never felt like I was straining to reach the handle bars or anything. The suit tucked into my boots well. I stayed plenty cool on the track with the venting/perforation. The leather feels top quality and not cheap/easily creased like thin/cheap leather.
No complaints, excellent product.
