A lot of people swear by the Celtic suit like Jay says above. It's one of the most popular suits in the paddock mainly due to price but coupled with the fact that it seems to crash well.

I've checked out a few guys suits in the paddock that have crashed and it looks solid.

I don't have any firsthand experience though so take the above for what it's worth.

My buddy Mike (mt3z1k) bought one last year for track days. Fit him like a glove and looked like a great suit. From the looks of it, you do have to be slim and not too heavily muscled. Athletic build is good but body builders would have a tough time getting into it.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I have the celtic suit and its awesome. can't beat the price on sportbiketrackgear plus they throw in a free helmet!

I'm 5'10" 155 and I got a 42 which is just a tad bit too large for me in the neck, arms and crotch but overall its a good fit, the armor is top notch and the back protector is full coverage but it's only level 2 CE, so you might want to upgrade it later.
