Hey all,

Which dealerships carry the best selection of Alpinestar jackets/suits? I'm looking mighty hard at their TZ-1 2 piece suit. Anybody with comments?

If you know your size and what you want I would suggest going through a club's prefered vendors.
I shopped around and found that through NESBA I saved about $300 on an Alpinestar SMX1 suit.
If you are a member of a track day org or have a racing license you should be able to get a good deal on leathers through any of those.

If not, consider joining one or kneedraggers.com is your best bet.

I have the womens version of the TZ-1 in 2 piece and I love it! It's survived two crashes at the track pretty darn well and the armor is very very good. Overall I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up!

i'm interested in alpinestars as well, anyone know of good area dealers? Not to buy from but to try out the jacket to see how it truly fits.
