    verdict

    I used them in the weekend. They are comfy enough. They are water proof enough. the only sad thing was that the main zipper dome broke leaving them dependent on the zipper to do all the work. pretty minor, just annoying. I fitted a new dome and all is well.

    Hmmm, testing is in the crashing you say... quite right. However, I don't fancy testing my fairings and handlebars and insurance policy and my wife's ability to lock me out of the house, to make sure the stitching holds together.
    All things come to those who wait... I'm happy to wait.

    mate thats not good, Leather needs to be in a dry place, the only thing you can do is use a light bleach solution to kill the spores (now in the leather), dont bath the gear in it use sparingly with a rag and wipe of and clean it again with a mild detergent then a leather treatment/ conditioner like Mothers leather conditioner.

    Once mouldy its hard to get it out. but give it a go, failing that get babyB to do it for you.

    Let me know how ya get on okay

    Sorry to go off topic for a second, but I've got something I want to ask Quasi-Do you actually make the leathers your self or just own the buisness/pay the workers? Just curious

    We design and specify all the Qmoto range here in NZ and pay our Factory (we have a financal interest in the factory) to make them on our behalf kinda the same as many brands
    We visit our factory once a year to go over issues and future designs and improvements as well as scope out whats going on in the industry.
    To make leathers to our standard in NZ would be price prohibitive to the point where it would not be feesable, additionally it would be nigh on impossible to cost effectively make and develop moulds for TPU and titanium armours, so there you go mate

    I went out there to check them over before making up my mind.
    You get what you pay for in non major brands, major brands you pay a lot for the name and hopefully reputation and quality follow.
    I never purchased them in the end. The fit was weird and I am as standard a size as they come, the quality was comparable to the price but what value do you put on yourself?
    Personally I think I am worth more than 1 Tonne/Mohsin leathers, you might not be though.
    Cheap leathers are cheap leathers. Putting some decent dollars into good riding gear will eventually repay you, in longevity and in case of accident.
    Some of my kit is 15+ years old and now the premium I payed back then seems like a bargin.

    I ended up getting some Quasi pants and a good as new Natural Wear jacket, had them professionally adjusted, had one spill and done 50,000+ kms and all good so far.

    Thats a bit of a silly thing to say. Going by that logic nobody would ever drive anything other than a new BMW (or equivalent), as everything else may be not as safe.

    And if we are still talking about how much value do I put on myself, $385 + P&H - making me a bargain

    The 1tonne one-piece I got was very good value for money. Meaning at a 1/3 of the price, it is probably 3/4 the quality of expensive suits. Which, to me at least, makes it very good buying, at a quality which exceeds what I paid for it.

    True, you never remember the price (just like a good concert), but not everybody can buy Alpinestars stuff from the get go. And Im big on strong 'gut feelings', so if you dont feel good about buying 1tonne stuff, then that in itself is reason enough to not. Having faith in what you are wearing/riding/doing makes a huge difference with pretty much everything.

    That said, I am using it, and Ill happily continue, until someone wants to sponsor me, or I win lotto (or even a decent scratchie win may do it)

    Bottom line is this stuff is cheap as chips, and will save your ass in a crash.

    I work with a couple of people who wear 1 tonne leathers. One had a majorish crash and the other a minor off. In both cases the gear stood up very well and they are more than happy with their purchase.
