La Sportiva tried selling racing suits in North America a few years ago. Unfortunately the suits were too awesome for the nascent local market, which couldn’t stomach the nearly $600 price tag. Not a company that accepts failure, La Sportiva has managed to produce almost-as-awesome suits (just missing the previously included hood and gloves) at a *much* better price.

The Syborg Racing Suit features a reasonably warm lycra weave that, combined with the darker color, makes it feasible to wear by itself. It has all the race suit features you’d expect:

  • Boot buckle cutouts on the cuff will save you from fumbling with pants during transition.
  • Large front skin pocket is a must have feature so you don’t have to remove your pack.
  • Water bottle pocket keeps your hydration close to you for quick access and to prevent freezing.
  • Seams are sewn flat and reinforcements can be found in the shoulders to resist pack wear.
  • Zippered transceiver pocket has outside access just in case the unthinkable happens.
  • Zippered fly has outside access just in case the thinkable happens.
  • Internal pockets keep you organized for the long journey soon-to-be behind.

Update 2016/17: The suit has a new, faster color scheme.
