I just wanted to say that when I low sided my bike at a track day a couple of months ago, I walked away without a scratch thanks to my Shift brand leathers. I actually bought the primer jacket and redline pants second hand from a guy off Craigslist. I was in a left hand turn when the front wheel lost grip w/ the track and I went down. The leathers were zipped together at the waist and I slid about 100-200 feet down the pavement. No holes or major damage to the gear at all - just some scuffing as you might imagine. I was going to keep the gear but my insurance co. covered it so I went and bought a new set. I was really pleased with the quality of Shift products. They saved my hide!
