Dainese Rain Suit
Get a size larger
This suit works great! However, if you're kind of in between sizes go for the larger size. These fit weird, both my wife and I had to return and exchange for a different size. The problem is when you're sitting down. I think in the product video they need to test these suits while sitting down, I first got a large which fit my arms and legs great until I sat down, once I sat down it squeezed my hips and groin area way too tightly. I had to get an extra large which was a little loose on the rest of my body but felt pretty good when I sat down, these don't leave much room for a groin or butt.

Excellent Rain Suite
Very good wet weather protection, went through an extremely heavy Texas thunderstorm and no water got through. the fit is a little tight.

To be fair. This is an "out the box review" for fit and general impressions.
I have not had the opportunity to use the suit yet. So to be fair... THIS REVIEW IS JUST FOR OUT THE BOX GENERAL IMPRESSIONS AND TRYING IT ON FOR SIZE...For starters revzilla ships ultra fast and the on the phone rep that took my order was very nice and polite. The suit came in a day and a half. Right out the box the suit looks and feels high quality. The only thing Id like to see added to the suit would be a different material around the inner leg areas that are known to get burnt by your pipes. Im 6 feet 3 inches tall and I weigh about 197 pounds my waist size is a 34. I ride a 2013 HD Street Glide. I ordered an XL. I tried the suit on with my leather jacket and my leather vest over my jacket. I had on a pair of jeans and boots. I wear a size 12 boot and I COULD NOT get my boot through the pant leg with my boot on . It was not going to fit at all. The leg unzips to about mid calf and flares out like a bell bottom pant. This still was not enough room to get the suit on with my boots. After getting the suit on I was overall very pleased with the fit and feel of the suit. The legs do tapper a bit at the bottom when fully zipped. My jeans were slightly exposed at the bottom (half inch) after they were zipped. I think that happens for me cause my boots are very high and wide at the top. Even with the slight exposure of my jeans I'm still quite impressed and pleased with the suit. Everything else about the suit is explained pretty exact in the video that revzilla does. I've tried on a two piece suit from HD and it looked like I had on a big plastic bag! Dainese has put some work into making this suit look good. Waist straps on the outside of the suit are a very nice touch and the zipper that zips you up can zip from the top to bottom or the bottom to top. I guess they did it that way so that when you have to use the bathroom you can simply zip up from the bottom of the suit instead of having to fully unzip from the top. Im not sure. Ill drop another review when I use the suit. I hope this review helps you.

This product has great features
This product is great however I would change 2 things
1. The Leg zips I would make longer to open the leg at the bottom for the boots
2. The 2 Velcro strips at the bottom of the body opening I would make 1 continuous piece of Velcro as this is the part I tend to miss and the water seeps in.
Otherwise it performed excellently in the downpour we had (5mm in last hour)

Just as expected
I loved the style and also the fitting. Some people may say it is small but it is exactly what you would expect from na Italian brand such as Dainese.
I bought exactly my size and if fit correctly over all the gear, including a leather jacket.
If you prefer baggy clothes, go for one size larger.
Works great in terms of rain protection, of course

Excellent 1-piece rain suit!!!
The weather report said rain last Tuesday, so I took the suit with me in my backpack, just in case. Sure enough, when I got up into the mountains around N1 it started raining good. It took maybe a minute to get the suit on! It easily went over my boots and 1-piece Laguna Seca suit! I wear a size 50 euro suit, and I bought the size large rain suit, which is actually a bit on the big side!
I would definitely recommend this suit, because after 220 miles of riding in some pretty hard rain, my leather suit was totally dry! I love Dainese gear!

Buy a Size Larger
I'll start off by saying I'm 6'2" 150 lbs (188 cm, 69 kg) and I was REALLY not sure on what size I needed. Going off of the fact that I wear a size medium in virtually everything else, I thought it was a safe bet after seeing that in the Revzilla video, the gentleman modeling the suit was 6'1" 195 lbs and wearing a size large. 50 lbs of difference, safe bet, right?! Wrong. The medium is T-I-G-H-T! No way I was getting my size 12 U.S. boots into those, as I could hardly get my feet in without boots on.
After squeezing my feet in, I was left to attempt the task of getting my arms in while wearing my Dainese Zen Evo jacket (Size 54 in Dainese jacket sizing). It was difficult under the ideal conditions of my living room, but I managed to zip it up - even if that meant holding my breath with no air in my lungs.
I was physically unable to get the suit off after about 5 minutes of trying and finally had to ask my brother (who was laughing the whole time) to help me with my arms. I had a feeling if I fell over I'd be like a turtle on my back!
In the video they specifically say that the suit is designed so that you don't have to buy a size up, and designed to go over your current armor. No bueno.
I'll be biting my teeth, paying the Revzilla exchange shipping fee (sigh), and trying a size large. I'll edit this post when it arrives.

Overall good suite
I'm 6'5", 185lbs. Riding a Triumph Scrambler.
I was caught in an afternoon monsoon today. The suite did good.
Easily visible, not terribly baggy, one piece / one zipper, not PVC, mesh inner, easy to stow away.
Have to remove my size 14s to put the suite on (Non-issue for 99% of humans#, slightly tight around the front of the neck #again a non-issue for most#, some water around my neck #not a river)
