I figured the source was probably motocard.
Lol, not bragging about anything. I'm letting you know in case you're wondering about kangaroo, it's very nice. No braggard here. It was hard to find reviews on kangaroo suits, so thought I'd share.

Reason I didn't say the website is because it's not an advertised price on any website. I sent them an email with an offer and they shockingly took it. It was their last 2014.

I remember talking to the HELD importer in Sydney and he said some of his suits are only part kangaroo otherwise they are too expensive to make
i have a held suit and only the areas that are non impact are kangaroo. from what i heard (not sure if its true) that a full roo suit is only good for like one crash. anyway held is an amazing suit.

Roo suits are supposed to be a lot stronger and lighter. The strenght comes from Less fat in the fibers than cows which means more tear resistance. Went down once with a roo suit on held up pretty good. Went down many of times in cow leather suits they also held up fine too. I prefer the roo only because its light weight. I thinks its more of a preference thing.

Yea it is noticeably lighter. Holding this suit up to my cowhide gear is quite lighter. And I can move all around while in it. Don't feel stiff or uncomfy. For me, it's a good thing I went for it. The roo "Team" suit is nice too cuz it has the Ti knee inserts along with the shoulder ones mine has. I like that look too.
Thanks from ScrapperX

I agree the roo suit is way more comfortable and the Dainese Team suit is what I wear. I do like the ti inserts in the knees and elbows. I just wish it had the water bag like the trickster in the hump, it will be handy on those long canyon runs.

Yup, the water bag is awesome! Surprised Team Suit doesn't.
