    @ $550 it seems worthy of a look.

    Yeah, I looked it up cautiously expecting to see $750/800.

    I'll probably check around locally just because shipping might be a bitch for small items. But open to hearing about stuffs you got, just attach a price or whatever.

    For pants I'm kind of looking at something with built-in armor just for convenience. For now I do have some MX pants, shin guards, knee guards, chest protector, they're just kind of old and shitty and don't fit great. We'll see if I have a dime left after the DR project, sorting the gixxer & hopefully lining up some track time!
    Here's my stuff if you're interested.

    I had an XD4 for a while, it fogged worse that i could believe with the slightest moisture, and something about the shape of the shield meant that wind didn't clear rain drops off very well, so I sold it. Just my experience, yours may differ!

    ^ ...

    i was referring to my two sets of older '13 TLD gear, GP and SE, which can still be found on sale here and there. the latest versions have been revised, i prefer the older fit, waist band/buckle system, etc. those two sets get washed in a machine after every ride, still look/work great other than small tears from thorns and slight wear from my neck brace. the gloves haven't lasted as long. grippy fingers go first.

    other than that stuff, my usuals are TLD Air and SE3 lids (used to sumo in these as well), Leatt neck brace/kneeguards/CP, Gaerne SG-12 boots, USWE hydro pack, TLD protective shorts, UnderArmor heat gear tank, Thor thin coolmax socks.

    i've tried all sorts of gear over the years and the stuff above works and fits the best for me. elbow guards are difficult, i hate them all.

    The Fox V3 came, it's gorgeous and love the build quality, but the sizing is completely off. First time I've ever returned something for being too small.. going up to a Medium

    Damn, I'd snatch that up but I have the body type of a tween girl.

    consider yourself lucky, that means you're in the weight spec for most dirtybikes.

    Re: Enduro life: Gear choices for street and dirt?

    How does Alias MX gear compare quality-wise to the bigger players -- Fox, TLD et. al.?

    I'm not thrilled with the durability of my Alias stuff. Some of it is my fault (exhaust burning through pant legs) but the shirts seem to rip easily, and so do the gloves.
