AGV Sport Thunder 2-Piece Rain Suit
Can't beat the price!
I got rid of my cage so I'm riding this winter. This rain suit is perfect and well worth the money. I went traffic cone yellow so I'm visible. I accidently ripped out the stitches on one of the leg openings but the velcro still keeps it closed. Really blocks the wind so this is perfect for winter.

Overall a good product
One of the reasons I purchased this product was to use it for a windbreaker in cold weather. This means that I will be wearing a jacket for warmth under the rain gear. It worked great for that and allows me to ride comfortably down to 15-20F. The only downside is that the collar is not designed to accomodate the collar of a jacket underneath and the result is that I cannot fully secure the collar of the rain gear when I am wearing the jacket but I did not find that is was an issue as far as wind breaking.

Bone Dry. This is what you need.
I ordered this rain suit in black because the high-viz yellow looks terrible in the pictures... I need rain gear because I commute 30 miles to work every day on two wheels (three wheels when I know it's going to rain). I have been caught in a couple of heavy downpours and unexpected showers with my textile "winter" jacket and it unfortunately lets some water in. I don't have any waterproof pants either. The day after the suit arrived at my door I got a chance to try it out in a 37 degree, rainy ride to work and after 30 minutes of highway and some surface streets, I arrived bone dry. As for the cold, I was layered up but this rain gear seemed to do a great job of breaking the wind and keeping most of the cold off. Don't waste your money on anything more expensive than this. This does the trick and even comes with a handy tote bag that can fit in almost any saddlebags or tail bag that you have.

Waterproof, heavy duty, low cost
I was looking for a waterproof 2 piece rain suite and landed on this unit because of the hi-viz option, low cost, and generally positive reviews. Overall, I like the design and recognize it is good quality and will certainly keep me dry, however I have two relatively minor issues: 1) the wrists have elastic bands instead of an adjustable Velcro wrap, and the elastic bands are not snug so I anticipate water can run up the sleeve unless I get creative to find a way to tighten that area and seal out water or place the elastics over the gauntlet portion of my riding gloves which is probably the intended design strategy and 2) the suite itself is heavier duty than I anticipated and consumes more pack space than I expected or wanted; it will fit into my Nelson RIgg 1060 Sport Tail bag but consumes the majority of space when the tail bag is not expanded. Because the rain suite is used so infrequently I'll most likely place it under my tail bag.
The fit is true to size. I wear a small 4 season Revit jacket - pant set and the small rain suite fit over the riding gear perfectly.
The hi-viz color is excellent and I recommend this option.

Product is well made
The suit arrived quickly as usual, and as others have said it is very bright.
The size is slightly small but I would order bigger since it should go over your regular gear. For example I am 6"1 165 and got a large and the fit is fine.
Overall would recommend, the suit seems very well made which is why I opted to spend a bit more. Don't expect much airflow, but as the same time it is completely waterproof.

Great Jacket, So So Pants
I took this rain suit on a trip from Connecticut to Colorado and back again. Saw rain on the plains as well as the mountains. I cant say enough about the jacket, it fit over my Roland Sands leather jacket with no problem even with the armor in. The Jacket kept me dry in pouring rain outside of Wichita and warm going over Wolf Creek pass in CO. Great jacket, easy to put on stopped on the highway and functions as intended. Very glad I purchased this before I left. The pants on the other hand have no fly, and were too short for my legs. I'm 5'10" and have a medium build. Off the bike the pants are easy to put on with the Velcro at the bottom of the legs. However on the bike the pants hiked up above my ankles and let the rain in. I was constantly pulling down the cuffs of my pants to try and cover my socks and top of my boots. So after 600 miles or so in the rain my socks and boots were soaked but the rest of me was bone dry. Great Jacket, so so pants.

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.
