Curious, as I am not really a big fan of the name brand jerseys with all the designs, colors, and what not. Does anybody ride in something other than a Yammy jersey and pants?

I have all FOX pants and jerseys. I have the "Yamaha" one and FOX gloves. Boots are Acerbis, chest protector is Moose. Helmet is Oneil, goggles are Scott, shin/knee guards are Fox. I have an RC1 neck roll and FOX elbow guards, but dont usually wear those. I dont really care which brand, I like a certain blend of colors and will buy any brand I think looks good. But I find FOX pants/jerseys fit the best IMHO.

I am a big fan of the Thor gear. Fox Hart replica helmet, and SG 10's for boots. I like the Fox dirtpaw gloves although they dont last very long.

I buy my gear on quality and value for money, not brand name.
Fox Jersey (runout at 2 for $AU50) can't even buy T-shirts for that!
Fly pants and gloves - crash tested many times
Oxtar TCX boots (Worth every cent)
Six Six Six One elbow guards
road race back protector (when doing 'likely to crash' activities)
Thor pivot knee guards (just ordered some asterisk cells) last crash = damaged ligament in knee
O'Neil helmet

I own a couple different sets of Thor pants/jerseys and one Fox set. Alpinestar boots Tech 6. Three or four different pairs of socks. 2 different HJC helmets. Thor gloves, Fox gloves. EVS knee and elbow guards. Thor Force chest protector. Thor kidney belt. I tend try on what appeals to me and buy what fits and wears well. So far these brands I've tried and liked but it really depends on what fits you best. In the future I'll probably try to find Moose or MSR. Moose is not in stock anywhere around here but, MSR is growing. Both companies seem very supportive to the sport.

Shift pants because I have ripped too many pairs of Levis
Thor boots cause I dont dare ride in shoes
Usually a T-shirt and Gloves to protect the hands
