    Slippery or Jetpilot?

    I know there is already some threads discussing new gear but I wanted to get some input on which company to go with. I have seen some recommend slippery and others recommend Jetpilot. If there is any others I should look at, I'm open to suggestions!

    I'm looking for a new life jacket, pair of riding gloves and shoes for this upcoming season.

    Thanks for any input!

    Jet Pilot. Their products have long out lived the others with me and many other racers. No they are not my sponsor.

    I have their wetsuit, side entry vest, gloves and boots. The suit, vest and boots are going on their third season of racing, training, and rec riding. The gloves I just get about one season season out of. Granted down here my "season" is mostly year round.

    DITO ... You can also go with the Yamaha brand wet suit ... to match your ski. I use the jet pilot boots ... the Jet Pilot side entry vest however, was not used much ... I did not like the
    way it sat on me. I felt it was not long enough in the body length ... I seemed to appear pregnant Ha Ha. I guess it was my belly. But do check out Yamaha brand they are really making some really nice, cool looking products. Good Luck in your search.

    pretty much the same reasons why i like slippery. sans boots. never owned a pair of any brand.

    i the end it doesn't matter what brand you go with as long as it fits well and you are happy with it.

    HAHAHAHAH man i know exactly what you mean. my current vest is a ronix (it is uscg approved) but i feel like i should be due any minute. hence me getting a new slippery vest that is longer in length.

    I have a Slippery vest and boots that I really like. 97GPSLEEPER, that I ride with often, wears a Jettribe and he seems very happy with it. Jetpilot is good stuff too. I would say you cannot go wrong with any of them.

    Are side entry vests better than the ones with a zipper and buckles in the middle? Not sure how the side entry vests look, do they look stylish. I like to look good on my ski
