Dainese Rain Suit
Does the job
The fitting is a little bit on the Euro side, and i think that you might want to take into consideration the fact that you will be in a seating position...then dont take it too small.
Nice feature and adjustement, very Bright yellow and look great. Folded package is small and convenient.
Does not breath that much but unless you are really riding a long time in really hot weather it should be adequate.

Great suit for the $$, buy 1 size up....
I just bought this suit and haven't had the pleasure of using it in the rain yet so I can't speak to dryness or breathability. I can say that I am 6 foot, 190lbs and I bought the XL. With a med weight textile jacket underneath it fits perfect and doesn't pull or bunch when sitting. My opinion is that it runs a little smaller than I like, I prefer a little room so I bought one size up.

Great suit. Really yellow.
I ride an FZ09 and this suits keeps me almost totally dry, which is shocking considering there is absolutely no protection from wind or rain on this bike. If I wear a neck gaitor I'm bone dry, as the only place it ever leaks is minuscule drops finding their way from under my helmet down the neck. It seems to run small so I ordered a xxl and it fits perfectly over my boots, pants, and big leather jacket. I'm 6'1", 190 pounds.
It's also bright. Really, really BRIGHT. Which is good when it's dark and stormy.

Very happy with this purchase. This thing has a flap and zipper for everything. Almost impossible to get wet wearing it.

good rainsuit with a couple caveats
I bought this suit to stay dry in the rain, and it definitely does the job. On its first trip, I drove 40 miles through rain that alternated between a fine mist and near downpour, and had not so much as a damp spot anywhere when I got home. You're also about as visible as you can get while wearing this thing.
A couple points were a problem for me, though. First, you simply aren't going to get this suit on while wearing your boots. So pulling over under a bridge to suit up is going to take a few minutes. Not a deal breaker, but annoying. As others have pointed out, there's no ventilation. It's not surprising given that this is designed to be waterproof, but it gets HOT in the summer if you aren't moving. At speed, you're fine, but stopping for a light is not fun. Lastly, while the suit fit me overall, it is tight over the knee area when seated on the bike. I wear Dainese Drake Air pants, so this suit should be a perfect fit to them, and it's tight. Not tight enough to be in danger of ripping the fabric, or particularly uncomfortable, but there's no extra room at all.
Beyond those couple annoyances, this suit gets the job done. I carry it whenever rain seems likely, and have been happy with it.

Are these expensive? Yes. But they're totally worth it! I live in Georgia and commute to work everyday, and I've been caught in several monsoons with this suit, it will keep you bone dry! Warning, though! Buy a pair of boot covers because this suit will NOT protect your feet.
Cons: This suit does not breathe at all. Period. During the summer I sometimes wonder "why go through all the hassle, I'm just gonna be just as wet from the sweat." The suit is pretty much true to size, but if you have a little gut and wear a jacket under it, it's a little snug in the riding position in the mid section and slightly in the thighs.
All in all, totally worth the extra pennies!

I used it recently on a 300 mile road trip to Estes Park, mostly in the rain. I wore it over perforated Ducati leather coat (side 52) with leather pants and boots. The good news is that it kept me bone-dry and that it fit me like a custom suit, with no flapping about in the wind while at speed. It's very visible and since it is not designed with airflow in mind, kept the wind out which made my ride comfortable when it got down in the low 40s. However, there is no getting this thing on without removing your boots. It is sized right (fits like a glove over your riding gear) but there is not enough room to put it on over your boots.

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.
