hi

so i have this jacket
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/item.aspx?style=9238&department=112&division=1

and considering it is full circumfrance zip - i can get these matching pants
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/item.aspx?style=9236&department=113&division=1#

do you think this would make a good track gear setup

of should i just buy a suit (mind you i dont want to pay for a suit, but if it is that worth it, ill buy racing gear once right)
but i think this outfit with full circumfrance zip is safe enough

-thanks

I don't see why not if you're talking about the occasional track day. I hear generally good things about the TourMaster/Cortech stuff although I don't have first hand experience with it.

I own both the Apex pants and the Coaster jacket. The pants will be fine for track day use, as they fit like most other race pants and are very good quality.

While the Coaster jacket zips to the pants, I can't recommend it for the track. It is certainly more of a relaxed fit than many jackets. The sleeves in particular are more loose than my race suit, and has a more generous mid-section. It's a good all-around street jacket, but there are many better alternatives for track duty.

As a side note, new Coaster jackets can still be had on Ebay for around $130 which is an excellent deal.
