Yes they are legal. No they are not as safe. Yes, two piece suits seem to be helpful in fitting weird body types.

Necro-bumping.

As I mentioned in my F500 thread , I discovered that the suit that came with my car is almost as old as I am. Old enough that it doesn't have a cert patch, it's embroidered on, and talking with the org I was looking at they indicated that they would likely have to fail it. 

I vaguely remembered this and searched it out of the ether. 

Was very tempted by this

Passed on it because it was a bit off in measurements and the colors would look a bit harsh in my white/blue formula car. 

Got a silver/blue one from an ALMS Porsche driver instead with a boring mortgage company sponsorship.

Figured it might help someone else out to necro-bump

I got myself a suit off there, the measurements were accurate and buying used I got a nicer suit for the price, which will hopefully keep my butt from getting burned in the F600, should I ever need it, god forbid
