Do you use your D-AIR on the street/what's your weekend street suit?

Time to buy a suit, 95% weekend warrior, 4-5 track days a year, zero commuting.

Torn between misano (no rib protection), mugello or tech air. I feel the last one is best suited for my riding, but I like the integration of the D-AIR (and other small things, such as hydration pouch, light upon crashing, seemingly tested more, hearing from people first hand that it worked perfectly, less cumbersome, etc)

What suit do you wear on the weekends when not at track?

If you’re looking for airbag protection for street, go Alpinestars Tech Air Street as their system will protect you at standstill (when at a light) and at very low speeds. Dainese’s system only deploys at 30mph+

I wear Dainese Misano Pants mated with a Dainese Fighter Jacket and Dainese Pro-Armor back protector and Dainese Torque Out D1 Boots for street/track. Nice to be able to remove the jacket when stopping for water or a bite to eat.

I got both, Misano and Mugello R. Mainly do track, crashed couple times with Misano. No issues at all, no fractures. Mugello is at least twice the price. To me 3k+ spent is better than a broken rib.
You just have to keep in mind that if you carsh and needs to be serviced, you are with no suit for 1-2months. And 2-400$, depending on damage.

I use the Tech-Air suit on the track. I like the fact that it can be programmed for street is nice but I recommend trying one on. The back protector that is built into the vest is large and can be uncomfortable. Based on what you are stating for riding would the two piece air suit work? That way for street riding you can take the jacket off. Also based on your riding I say for A-star go with the street setup as mentioned it is always armed.

I use the Tech-Air in my GP Pro suit at the track then swap the bags into the jacket (it's a missile IIRC). That's what is practical for me. As others stated the A* also protects you at a stand still and low speeds in the street setting which in my opinion is invaluable.
