Note on factory pictures in photo gallery: Fieldsheer offers odd factory pictures of this suit. They show a headless, bootless rider, but with hands (and gloves). The gloves are not included with the suit.

Fieldsheer offers sizing information on their website, but for the suits, the sizing tables seem all wrong. They indicate that the suits are all at least one size bigger than the stated size. So instead of recommending their chart, I’ve put together a chart below that will help you choose a size based upon your chest and belly size. It also offers an approximate height range. This table and suits are sized very much like suits from other major brands, so if you have experience in wearing or trying on suits, you probably have a good starting point on picking a suit that will fit. One piece suits have a very snug fit and they are pre-curved for the riding position. The are also cut to fit average to short riders. Most one piece suits, when fit snugly will feel too short while standing, so evaluate the fit of a one piece suit when sitting on a bike. One piece suits are built for racing and are not all that practical for wearing on the street (because of the comfort and fit issues).

Our Two Cents
The Radar one piece offers very good value. The overall construction and materials used look very good to me. Some suits in this price range appear very cheaply built, but not this one. The entire front and the upper part of the back is made of fully perforated leather, so this suit should be comfortable in mild to hot weather. The armor system consists of “GP” type armor in the elbows and knees which is a hard plastic over foam design. The shoulders have “turtle shell” type molded rubber protectors. The back pad is an energy absorbing type, which is better than most “stock” back protectors. The hips have some simple removable foam inserts. The knees have Velcro for sliders but the sliders are not included. The suit includes a back hump, which is designed to help prevent neck injuries. The hump acts as a bridge between the rider’s head and shoulders reducing the tendency of the head to be forced forward toward the chin. I like the suit’s expansion sections above the elbows, shoulders, knees and above the waist. Those really help with mobility.
