I just recently got to do my first multiple day travel with this suit. Felt comfortable while riding, no pinch, pull or ride up. You will need to stop the adjustments of venting though and you will need to take it off to adjust back vents. Front access pocket only able to hold Ipod nano. Previous reviews were correct that your knee pads will need to be readjusted every time you remount bike. It is waterproof and when zipped up pretty windproof, kept chill out. Rode in temps of 42 on mtn switchbacks. If you decide to stop you cant just unzip and half shed, you will want to take off or burn up.
This is my first track suit. Got it at a holiday discounted price and for the price it just can't be beat. I normally wear a 42 jacket but that size in the track suit was a little too tight for comfort, so I went a size up to a 44 and it fit fine. Haven't had a chance to use it with the bike yet this season. One regret is that I didn't realize it did not come with spine protection - that seems like a requirement for any track suit. Other minor complaint is that the material in the sleeves can easily get caught up when putting your arm in - makes me wonder how long before i accidentally tear it. But again, for the price and for a beginner's first track suit, it can't be beat.
This was a great buy for me the suit works great. I'm from California not much cold weather the coldest probably high 30s. The suit does a good job keeping the cold air out. Keeps you nice and toasty. I am 6 foot 220 pounds and I got the XL still has plenty of room to move around in the suit and have extra layer under if needed. For $100 bucks it not bad but the suit does not have elbow pads, knee pads, but if it had them the suit would not be $100 good buy would recommend to friends
This is my first track suit, and I haven't even ridden with these yet, but I wanted to comment on what I do know about this suit.
Im 6', 205lbs and after trying on 8 or 9 one piece leathers I got this Cortec in an XL. I would say its a comfort fit. But a LG was too short on the torso and sleeves.
The suit feels well made and I didnt notice much difference between it and suits costing $1000 more. The one drawback I would call out is the back protector is a foam pad. I will be getting a hard back protector before hitting the track.
Other than that, Im very happy with the purchase. I think its a great value.
Cold mornings in Oceanside, CA, means the temperature dips into the 40s. That said, with the liner installed it proved to be too warm and I had to take it out. Riding without the liner proved to be perfect. Warm again and happy cruising around 80mph with this suit on. Only problem I had was with the liner. Trying to put the suit on with jeans on and the liner installed was difficult. I'm 5'10 and weigh 185 and bought the XL. It's tight and hard to get into, but once on it sure does the job! With the liner in I had to take off my jeans. With the liner out it is a bit easier to get into and I can wear my jeans.
I got the suit med according to the size chart. I 5'7" about 155lbs. I have at tall trunk and short legs. I wore the suit on two runs in about 40°. It was like not so warm as I hoped. Sorry I'll still had to use all my electric gear under to stay warm. I ride mostly everywhere. I just need a different size. Thank you.
