From those pictures its a 07 Ducati corse suit, but at that price it seems very iffy, even a dealers cost is no where near that price. And these suits are not made in high volumes so theres no way that they are " over stocked" And where it says Colors RED/BLACK/WHITE or ANY COLOR. ducati doesnt make this in any color. It sounds like a nock off. I would feel more comfortable spending 1100 from a reputable dealer, knowing that im getting the real thing.

That price is to start bidding, $429.00 and $74.99 shipping with out $12
insurance. And it may have a resserve. I am thinking he wants us Ducati
Dudes to bid it up to over retail.

Your also being raped on shipping, regardless if its coming from canada, an item thats this weight and size should be around $ 25.

That's really funny Guys... I bought from them some weeks back some stuff.... Well The quality is perfect no complains... it is made by that company and not by Ducati... here comes the funny part.... The Stuff is made and shipped from PAKISTAN... That's why the price is that high and they ship with FEDEX Worldwide Express.... Shipping went fine, just a one day delay in NY Customs was too late with release...

Funny this post came up as I am talking to them in regards to customizing their Corse jacket. Getting rid of the black and replacing with green to go with the TriColore. A bit reluctant though.

Personally there's no way that I'd risk my arse in a $400 set of replica leathers made in Pakistan. I'd bet a months pay that the company are specialists in making 'replica' (i.e. fake) gear, and not specialists in making bike suits. If you're going to pay the price of a new Ducati, then don't go cheap on the safety gear, if you want a Ducati Corse suit, buy a Ducati one they're made by Dainese who have a few years experience making this type of kit.............who would buy a replica $150 Arai helmet?

Actually pretty funny guys. I went to Cycle Gear this weekend with a friend. He bought an Alpinestars jacket....made in China. Do you really think Pakistan is any worse? Check your local gear store and see where your Dianese is made now. I can't believe the incredible snobbery :jerkoff: . It's frickin' LEATHER, if it fits and the seams are stiched correctly, what's the problem. If you get it and don't like it, send it back.
Also, if you look at his "see buyer's other items" he has a similar suit for $310 and $65 shipping. I'll bet the shipping is negotiable since others have it at $49.
I bought myself a set of one piece ventilated leathers, with speed hump, for Christmas, perfect fit, great padding(CE armor), good looking, triple stitched. $299. When they arrived and I looked at the label, it said "Made in Pakistan". Do I care, F**k NO, I got a hell of a bargain with no compromise in safety.

Sorry guy, but I think you need a reality check,and I hope you never have to put your bargin to the test. Sure Alpinestar, Dainese et al use foreign companies to make thier gear. BUT the gear is made using their techniques and quality standards, and from leather sourced by them. It's not snobbery it's actually common sense, and by BTW leather varies sooo much. :banghead: but hey WTF you got a bargin :)

If you believe that, you're "drinkin the kool-aid." They DO NOT ship the leather to China or Pakistan.

Having never seen the finished product, you have a much better idea of how it's made. :stickpoke Me....I've only seen it, touched it, and inspected it.
I bought mine on the basis of, if it's crap, I'll just send it back. When they came and I inspected them and tried them on I was stunned at how well they were done.

My Dianese suit is made in Italy

Some people might want a product that is manufactured and backed by a well know and established company, that will still be in business down the road if support is needed. While others could care less and say a leather suit is a leather suit. There's no reason to get all pissed about this. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Some of you take these posts way to seriously.
Theres no reason to call people snobs just because they have a different view than yourself.

Well in that case enjoy it, and let's hope you never have to add 'tested it' to the list :) Me....I'll stick to products that I & friends have satisfactorily tested over the years.

Hey guys, first post! This could of course be a never-ending argument, but personally I'll pay double the price for a superior product AND to help fund research and development of safety gear in general that the entire sport will benefit from.

guys,

both alpinestars and dainese make suits in italy and pakistan. the top of the line stuff is all made in italy. the cheaper stuff is made in pakistan. can you tell the difference? i think so. perform a simple test at your dealership: try on a pair of alpinestars gp series gloves, (made in italy), and compare it to the cheaper alpinestars gloves (made in pakistan). the gp gloves feel better and fit better. not because they're made in italy as opposed to pakistan, but because they're better gloves! ditto for the jackets and leather suits. the more expensive stuff fits better. it's that simple.

there's also the safety issue. my buddy was doing a track day at pocono when a guy in a dianese suit crashed. much of the stitching came undone. turns out his dianese was one of the cheaper ones.

the issue isn't where your leathers are made, but rather, how comfortable they are and how well they protect when you crash. more expensive leather fits better and protects more. that's why it costs more, not because it's made in italy or new jersey or wherever. money doesn't grow on trees, but neither does skin. be smart, invest in good leathers.

Ride safe.
Elton

If you're just 'cruising' on the street, maybe they're okay.
But personally, I think that Leathers are like Helmets.

Pay $700 for helmet - no problem, I'm worth it.
Pay $1350 for genuine Dainese for track days - no problem, I'm worth it.
