Joe Rocket RS-2 Two-Piece Rainsuit
Works as designed.
Kept me dry during a downpour through Northern California. Friends complemented on the fact that they can see me despite the downpour. Fit is true. Material does not look and feel cheap. My only gripe is the pants - should have more than just an elastic band on the waist. Perhaps a velcro so it does not slide down while riding. Also, pants has no access point to go through my jeans pockets. Overall though, I am satisfied with this product.

The RS-2 rain suit works surprisingly well
I was wearing this rain suit during the motorcycle training. Spent a few hours in the parking lot in constant rain. Then spent a few hours for the road ride in the rain as well. The rain suit kept me dry. I was pretty impressed. Not sure how wells it ventilates when the weather get warmer though.

I'll start off by saying I purchased this rain gear to go over my normal clothes in the event I was caught by a quick shower. I knew fully that these were not by any means going to be a regular use item, or that they would be used in heavy rain conditions.
During the first rain I used these in, I noticed that they didn't breath all that well. I expected this, for the most part, but when I took them off I realized just how hot I had been. This is easily attributed to the PVC, so be aware of that. By no means will they keep you warm in cool temps, but during a summer shower you're going to be really uncomfortable.
The second time I used this rain suit, the zipper's backing strip tore off the jacket, leaving me with a large opening in the middle and bottom of the jacket when it zipped. I was really disappointed that the stitching gave out so easily, but I can't say I'm surprised. All of the stitching in this suit is extremely flimsy and clearly it will shred apart.
Absolutely do not buy this! Spend a little more and get something stitched together with more than a single stitch.

after much scouring of the internet and comparing features vs price and reviews, I decided to go with the Joe Rocket - I finally got a chance to test it out during last weeks rain here in Southern California.
I stayed dry the entire time on my commute in traffic coming home from work. Seals good, collar is comfortable and rides high as to not allow rain in between helmet and neck.
Does not breathe too well, but on the plus side it blocked out the cold and the wet.
I do like the straps for your boots and the getting them on and off is no problem with the zip open side panel on legs.
based on my experience so far, I recommend this rain suit

The jacket ripped on the second use
It is like wearing a plastic bag
The boot straps on the pants aren't in their proper place
It's really baggy
Really keeps the water out

Does what it was made to do, for less $.
I bought this for my trips to Canada and had to use it about half way home the last trip I took. It fit perfectly over my riding suit and kept me perfectly dry. it also blocked the cold and was easy to take off. The bright yellow jacket provides great visibility for others to see you in inclimate weather.

Dry as a bone
I own the Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 pants and jacket in combination with the Rain Suit I stayed totally dry last ride I did in the mountains. The size if perfect to go over my Joe Rocket riding gear and is very comfortable when I used it over jeans and a mesh jacket in the city last week. I am very happy with my purchase and I got a good deal too.
