Cortech Latigo RR One-Piece Leather Suit
Good for the canyons
Good entry level leathers for cruising the canyons. Zippers are excellent and air flow is good. I'm 5'8", 155lbs, average build and ordered a small after watching the video and reading the reviews. Overall fit is good, just a bit of "nut crunch" when standing straight up. Perfect fit while in riding position. If you're a little taller or heavier I'd recommend the medium, my size or smaller, go with the small. Good bang for the buck!

Bought for track day use and have been using for last 3 or 4 years. I've crashed in the suit 3 times and I am still using it. Other than being a little ratty in a few spots, it did it's job and I'll continue to trust it. I'd recommend it. Wear a back protector...

My fitment experience.
I'm 5'6" 155lb, 31" waist,31" inseam and the small is an ok fit. Cortech's size chart says 5'9"-5'11" for the small but this will work for me. It's comfortable but not too loose. I have large quads and calves so the legs are tight but the knee pad and sliders fir right where they should. The crotch fits right about where it should, not too low, good flexibility. I can open my legs to get my knee out easily. The sleeves are just short of being too long. The only thing that's a little out of place is the tail bone pad that sits a little low, but technically I am too short for the suit. Honestly though, I can't see how a 5'11" could fit into the small, but they did in the video, wow!
As for protection, CE elbows, shoulder and knees but the back is just a foam pad and it doesn't appear that Cortech makes a real back protector to fit in their suits. There's padding at the hip but I'm looking for a little more protection. I'll be wearing my Icon Stryker Shorts and Dainese Manis back protector with this suit.
The construction looks good quality, good stitching, good zippers. This is my first suit and it looks like I made a great purchase

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.
