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.
This suit is an incredible deal for the money, and except for the fact it does not have armored knees, shoulders, etc, it is just about perfect. I am a very big guy (6-4, 270#), and size 3X fits well. It is reasonably easy to get into and out of. I rode 200 miles this weekend in weather ranging from 35-50 degrees F, and rainy to bright sun. Underneath, I was wearing nothing but long nylon underwear. I did not get chilled or overheated. The velcro neck closure is very good. Its worth mentioning that a one piece suit has advantages over a jacket and pants because it is less drafty and there is less to fuss with.
I purchased this suit about 6 months ago and I am really impressed overall with the quality and value of this two piece. I am 5'8" 170lb, average build, and I got the 44 for comfort-fit an it was way too big. I traded it for a 42 and now I'm happy. I normally don't like my suits race-fit since I tour on my 954RR and do a lot of day trips locally. Very high quality, looks great, and solid protection (I added a force field size 001 back protector and it fits perfectly). I highly recommend for the price and as a day to day suit for proper protection.
I love Axo products! I have their Primato II boots and Byway leather jacket. Great quality and a very good price point. I hope they keep making street gear and I'll be a long time customer for sure! The jacket does not have the inner back protector but you can pick one up from Axo for $30 that will be a perfect fit. Sizing is small compared to something like Alpinestars; just order one size larger and it should be a perfect fit. The suit is tight fitting for me as well but that's ok since I'm not using it for regular commuting and don't need any extra layers underneath.
First, let me say I love this suit. It's heavy at about 10 lbs, but worth it. I'm 5'8 and 195, 30 inseam. The sizing chart I saw recommended XL, so I ordered it. Had the legs hemmed locally for $35, and suit now fits. BUT, it's really big in the collar and pushed up my body, with the collar hitting my helmet collar. The back armor makes me look like a hunchback. Climbing on my cruiser took some effort because the legs were tight around my jeans. Still, once under way, it was great to wear and did the job. Lots of pockets, venting is almost too good for cold rides! Anyway, it's a nice suit. If I had a do over, I'd go a size smaller.
This one piece suit is awesome! Protection is top quality. I have the same complaint as many of the reviews regarding the zipper sticking a few inches below the neck but this is minor and simply requires a second tug to get it closed. Not easy to put on over boots while standing but you can do it. Nice ventilation. Fit is a bit short in the torso for me (6'3") but not to the point of being problematic. I rode in the rain for a few hours and remained dry and warm even as the rain turned to snow. Great value for the money!
