Spartan leathers - December 10, 2012, 12:13 AM

Anyone have any experience with Spartan leathers? Specifically the Charge two piece suit custom fitted? Looks like a great value. Me being a big guy (6'-4" and 280 lbs.) just wondering if their is anything I should keep in mind (other than losing weight). Thanks.

Search function.
There have been a number of discussions about Spartan.

General consensus, they are decent value for money and will survive a crash.

Sounds like the company I used back in 2005 for a custom 2 piece suit.
Price was good, and held up in multiple crashes (about 5) but the fit was way off. 1st time the suit had to be scrap and start from scratch...2nd time I said f**kit and took it to Bedos to make all the changes.

I cant remember the name of the company off hand, but I can if I see the website I ordered it from.

I got their leathers end of last year after about a 6 month wait. It took a while since he had to send the suit back to Pakistan once because they didn't do everything I requested. I got their top of the line suit in one piece. The quality and stitching is very good. Overall the product was very good. The fitting was relatively ok but I got measured when I was around 252lbs (I'm 6') and was wearing it when I was 290+ so that's expected. I purposely had him make it large and gave him looser measurements in certain spots due to my weight shifts through out the year.

DAMMMMN Turk you gotta drop some weight for health reasons alone. Justify it with giving you more power per weight ratio.

Lol, I know man. I actually am looking at liter bikes now. If I could find a 750 motor I'll be happy too. I'm down to 270lbs right now but low body fat percentage. I don't like going above 15%.
