Question Possible purchase: used Dainese Avro

Title says it all, I'm looking at a used Dainese Avro suit. Has anyone rode on one before? It has a little wear but no punctures or lacerations. The rest of my gear is Dainese, so I trust their gear, and have read nothing hit good reviews, just looking for personal experience. The guy is only asking $300 so I can't go too wrong for a for a track suit at that price.

Well, It was picked up today, I'll post a quick review of it once I get home and put it on.

I believe he does. I'm not one to chase big names, I'm jut spoiled enough to live with in an hour or so of the D Store. So I can try on/ compare in person a large rang of quality gear That, let's face it, does look cool. That will always be a factor on some level I assume.

Tried on the suit today, and while I may be able to squeeze into a 50, the 52 fits great and will allow for a back protector. Best of all, the suit smells new, not any trace of body odor. I'll be going to the Dainese Store SFO on Friday for their 30-70% off sale to look for back pro.

Fruitful effort and the DStore today, back pro and undersuit. Can't wait to get on the road with the new suit

Went for a 100mi ride today in the suit, and I must say it is great! The combo of the undersuit, back pro, suit, boots, gloves, (all Dainese) and helmet (RF-1100) made for a very comfortable ride. It was the first time I went cheek off, not knee down though. The suit moves with the body and provides great air flow. My only critique would be that there is a little extra room in the seat, but in the full tuck it is not baggy and would allow for a padded short.
