Default Recommendations on Full Suit

I'm looking for some recommendations on a full leather suit or two piece that is well ventilated and that can be comfortably be worn during warm/hot summer days.

I hate to be that guy...

But this has nothing to do with the f4i, and you'd probably get a much faster response in the "Off-Topic" section.

...or maybe even the track-day section.

To be honest, no 1 or 2 piece leather suit will be comfortable to wear on a warm/hot day.

I would recommend that you save your pennies and get a nice suit that has thick leather protection and body armour. I personally run alpinestars.

Check out the wera classifieds for great deals and a wide selection of suits.

While I have both 1pc & 2pc suits, I find the 2pc to be more versatile. My 1pc is Spidi & my 2pc is Alpinestars.

When I'm strictly going for twisty rides, I'll typically wear my 1pc. However, if I'm going to make a day of it (especially in summer), complete w/ meal stops, long breaks, etc, I'll wear my 2pc. I can simply just take off the jacket & relax. If you do any sport touring, making stops to visit attractions/exhibits/etc, being able to take off the jacket to be comfortable walking around in just your leather pants & boots is a real plus.

This is what I was going for, I should have elaborated more in my first post. I won't be hitting the track as of yet but I want to feel safe and comfortable while riding twisties during warmer/hot summer days. I talked to a few people and a two piece is what most of them recommended. Alpinestar and Dianese is what everyone is recommending.

is there a certain model I should look at that is better or more comfortable than the rest?

Appreciate the help

If there are any bike shops the sell leather in your area you should go to one and have a look as if you order something over the internet you might not like the fit when it comes
