I am French and new to your forum, and I must say also noob to mountain biking.
I did some downhills last weekends, and I like it !
but I'm not too self confident when I get fast on a bike, especially when you can potentially be killed by all the rocks and trees surrounding you on a forest.
That's why I will buy a fullface helmet on CRC. And now, I have the opportunity to get a brand new 661 Comp Pressure suit 2010 for 50€. It's a friend selling that because it's too small for him.
So is it a good deal ? Especially when I begin biking and I don't want to put all my money in it ?
Another important question is about the size of the suit. It's a L sized.
My personal waist is 80cm and my chest is about 95cm.
So that's perfect for a 661 Vapor pressure suit of M size but I didn't find anything on the web about the Comp version's sizes.
I don't know your currency; but it looks like your friend is offering for a third of the online retailer price, so that's pretty good. The Comp Pressure Suit is a good suit; it is basically the original PS with some well-thought-out upgrades. Sizing on the large may be a bit roomy for you but better to be a bit on the roomy side with it than too tight and constricting.
