I have just received my suit from Mike, and it's terrific. After I ordered, he gave me a call, and walked me through the whole process of the design, and the colors I wanted on my suit, as my goal is to slow down (I decend extremely fast).
Not only was I surprised he could understand me through a french accent (at least I think he did) but monsieur Mike gave me a a suit that performs, with a design I absolutely love. I know longer look like a color blind clown that jumped out of an airplane... Now my suit actually matches..
Highly recommend, blue skies, ça la vie!!!
Michigan standard jumpsuit
Review by: BlueSky4u2c, 2015-10-19
I just received my first jumpsuit from Mike. He talked with me on the phone to get perfect measurements and also took the time to give me a few tips on skydiving since I'm new to the sport. This jumpsuit is high quality and craftsmanship is second to none. I would recommend doing business with Mike to anyone and I'm looking forward to ordering a free fly suit soon. Thank you!

I ordered a suit from Michigan suits because I has seen other people with the suits and I thought they were pretty nice. I also like that they are not super expensive but still high quality. I ordered a custom RW suit and absolutely love it. Customer service is awesome. Mike is very friendly and accomodating. He even helped me with landing advice over the phone. He also gave me care instructions for the suit. I would highly recommend MI suits!

Mike is a great guy to deal with. Sent him my measurements, and he called me the next morning, said he thought I should check some of my measurements. He told me what he thought they should be for a person of my build. Well, he was exactly right. My new suit arrived exactly when he said it would, and it fit perfectly. I can not say a bad thing about Mike Michigan, or my new suit!

My first Michigan suit was made in seven days when I met the man himself back in 1995 while doing my AFF. I used it up until 2000, then stopped.3 years ago I started again, continuing with the same suit and although it’s stood the test of time and still has life in it despite looking a little dated. I therefore ordered and have just received my second Michigan suit, although Michigan suits are of good quality and well tailored, what lets it down is the lack of information when it comes to ordering! For example there are no picture manikins to show where the colours are to be, (pictures paint a thousand words!) and there is a big deference in some of the colours when it comes to the types of material used in particular the colour material named Silver grey! If and when the ratification gets sorted I will hopefully be able to put it through its paces.
Revised: You Won't Regret Getting a Michigan

I've had my Michigan for about eight months now. I've had to get the bottom of my booties professionally re-attached (the rubber part to the bootie starting coming off), the stitching around the zipper has come undone in two places (one at the bottom of the zipper and one up by my chest), and had the seam come undone on both outside knees (were the cordura bootie meet the upper leg fabric and back of leg fabric) which needed repair after two different slid in landings. Tough part about the repairs was that there wasn't enough fabric allowance in the seams to go just anywhere and have it fixed. The third place I went to finally was able to do it. They look great but after jumping it a little longer, I'm some what disappointed. But this is my first jumpsuit (I've stood up 99% of my landings in this suit so I haven't been hard on it), so I guess I don't have anything to compare it to.
I have nothing but good things to say about Michigan.

In May of 2006 I ordered a "standard suit" (RW) from Michigan Suits. I requested their express service because I needed a proper fitting RW suit for tunnel training I was to receive in June. Everything turned out perfect. The suit arrived before the promised date. It fit perfectly (especially the booties) and the quality and design have proven to be excellent.
I previously had an RW suit custom made by one of the most well known manufacturers in the industry. I was even personally fitted by the owner of the company. Now that I have this Michigan suit I realize that the booties on the other brand suit didn't fit well at all. The booties on my Michigan suit have just the right amount of tension between my toes and my knees.
Needless to say I highly recommend Michigan suits.

I recently ordered a Standard Michigan Suit in navy blue. The suit fits perfectly, is well made and was delivered within 3 weeks. They have a 2-3 week delivery time special right now without any rush fees. Check with Mike, it's probably limited to standard colors or colors in stock.
