AGV Sport Thunder 2-Piece Rain Suit
Does what it says...and nothing more.
Got this suit to wear in the warmer rainy season in NC for commuting. Being fully waterproof, it doesn't breathe at all, so you will get hot and clammy when it stops raining. It definitely wont win you any style points, but the high-vis yellow is VERY visible, which is what you want during a rainstorm. It fits over my jeans and spid leather armored jacket just fine (definitely wear some sort of armor under it...this will not do well in any sort of crash.) Makes you look a little bulky, but it's a small price to pay for staying totally dry. At this price point, it is a perfect rain-suit.

quality suit for the price
This rain suit is well worth $60. Absolutely no leaks for me with my waterproof boots and gloves in its first steady rain. Yes the crotch is leak free. Neck is a bit small with a sweatshirt or jacket underneath. The hiviz is nice and bright. I only wish it had some vents in the back as it gets quite warm in town over 85 degrees without any rain. Quality seems good and it should last me a while.

I can say I tested these to the extreme. In an electrical storm. Torrential rain. Had to pull over because I couldn't see anymore. Rode hour and a half in a downpour. The only wet I got was around the sleeve area because my gloves didn't cover the cuff. and around the collar. The fuzz on the collar got soaked, so my neck got a little wet, but it didn't drip into my jacket front. If I had a medium jacket, it probably would have sealed up under the helmet better. I got a large to go over the top of my riding gear, and it fits well (i'm 6 foot, 150 lbs), but is baggy. The length is right though. I got loads more water in through the helmet than the suit, and when I peeled it off, my riding gear wasn't even damp. Bonus, the yellow color can be seen from space, so you cut through the mist like a beacon.
Air flow score: it's rubbery inside - not meant to breathe.
Comfort score: again, doesn't breath, but it's not really supposed to

I bought this suit in the Hi-Viz. I feel like a traffic cone on a motorcycle lol. No water made it through and it was raining pretty hard. No complaints.

Great Rain Suit For the Price!
Bought an XL in Hi-viz to go over my Alpinestars touring-style jacket and Icon Compound leather/mesh pants. And let me tell you - this suit is VERY hi-viz, which is great for those times when you get caught in the rain and want to be as visible to the cagers as possible. My wife said that she needed to get her Oakleys in order to look at it when I tried it on.
My gear is XL and I am 6' 4, 195 pounds; the XL fits nicely over my stuff. Not too tight, not too loose. Pants have a knee-high Velcro closure to help get them on over your boots. Also the suit came with a storage bag which although a little small, which made it a challenge to get the folded two-piece suit into the bag, is handy for stuffing into my tail trunk or backpack.
For the price, I found this to be a very good quality rain suit!
