Anyone have experience with AGV SP4 suit and/or A* SP1 gloves? - November 23, 2008, 08:32 PM

I'm looking into purchasing an AGV SP4 suit and possibly some Alpine Stars SP1 gloves. Has anyone had any experience with either of these?

Thanks in advance

I have an AGV suit and I like it.... its not a really high end suit but It will definitely do what its designed to do and thats save you some skin in a crash... as for the gloves I just like alpinestars stuff in general I got some boots and I really love those...

Well I generally wear large. Mine are XL and could barely get them on. I soaked them in warm water then made fists for an hour or so while watching TV. They broke in a little more over a few track days. They're still not completely comfortable but OK for the track where they're never on more than 40 min at a time. I have Helds for the street.
