Used gear???

I'm pretty new to all of this so I bet I missed the thread but I cant find it so oh well.

Down to business. I was wondering does anyone sell used gear? Like riding suits?
My brother and myself are looking for some used 1piece suits that we can use for track days. Money is kinda tight so that why I'm taking this approach. Were both about 5"10 160lbs and have a 31" waist. Pretty average guys.

Any way. Any assistance toward our efforts would be great.

Check Ebay or the wera classifieds for some used stuff. I've never bought a new suit. Managed to get a nice Alpinestars suit off Ebay for 500 bucks that didn't have a scratch on it. Also got a nice Dainese suit off wera for about 500 bucks. The Alpinestars suit retailed for around 1300 and the Dainese for around 2200. Deals can be had, just takes a little digging and patience.

Thanks for the info. I will keep a look out for sure. I wasn't trying to spend $500 for a name brand. I was looking for more of a off band marked down to like $150. but I guess saving up and missing some track days but buying a better suit is the way to go.
