I have the Alpinestars Bionic and it is a great piece of equipment. It's saved my elbows a few times. It can be pretty warm in the summer, but you can stay cool by wearing a thin polypro undershirt and the suit on top. Don't wear a jersey over the top. However, I don't practice what I preach because if I don't wear a jersey, the thorn bushes here in Arkansas rip my pressure suit up. Shop around some and you can find the Bionic suit for a great price.

I have the Bionic jacket and love it. I wear a Under Armour longsleve under and my jersey over it. I think the under armour is a must...it makes a huge difference. It keeps you cool and your skin will not got irritated from all the rubbing.

I have the EVS one myself, it has held up well during a couple of street biffs but I wouldnt want to slide in it.

If you tighten the forearm straps enough to hold them tightly in place you get mad arm pump.

Overall I like the thing. Cool enough to wear around town and better than nothing. But it is not leathers or a good textile jacket for sure.
