I have had my thermo suit for 2 years and it is the best for cold weather. I ride my bike down to 15 or 20 degrees and stay warm with just pants and shirt underneath. I use heated glove liners and insulated hunting boots and ride all winter. Well worth the money and my bike don't have to set in cold weather.

Good Parts. Suit seems to be well made. Very warm, I was out riding in 40F weather, only a short sleeved nylon top and some workout pants on underneath. If you put some 'warm' gear underneath... this suit would probably be comfortable in 20-30 degree weather. Bad Parts. Suit has no venting. None. IMHO: That means cold weather only. Above 70's you're probably going to be pretty uncomfortable. I'm 5-11, 270 lbs. Got a 2xl. Fits fine upper body, but had to get the sleeves and legs shortened. (That was $110) So, for $175 I've got a nice bad-weather suit. Need to have it for a year or so to see how it holds up.

Looking for a track suit for my upcoming track day, and after coming up short at cycle gear because of their common saying of "we can order it". I went to a tailor and got my measurements and started searching on here, comparing prices and sizes and I stumbled upon this one which fit my budget and size. I'm 5'11, 220 lbs ex-football player, wide shoulders, wide hips, and big thighs. It fits Wonderfully while being tight in all the right places, without being overly constricting causing limiting mobility, if your a muscular guy who has big thighs and a wider build this is a very good option. The suit is very breathable as well, at NCBIKE it got up to 97 degress and while I was still hot, the suit wasn't holding in the heat. It has a breathable fabric on the chest, under the arms, and in between the legs. I ordered a 52 and in hindsight I probably should have gone with a 50. After you break it in the suit does get slightly bigger but not in a bad way, but more that it contorts with your body more so the suit learns where to fold and let out depending on your body and how you ride. Overall I give this suit a 11 out of 10.

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 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.
