Olympia Avenger One Piece Mesh Suit
Overall a great suit
I bought this suit to use for everything from commuting to weekend rides through the mountains. So far it has performed great for everything. It is a very comfortabke suit for the most part, but if i had one complaint it would be that the torso isnt long enough. Im 6'1" and about 220 and bought an 2XL thinking it would be a little big, but actually its just about perfect except for the torso length wich is a bit short when I get all the way hunched down on my CBR600RR (yes I know these suits are more for commuter style riding but i wasnt going to wear those gay tight leathers that cost upwards of $1000). So overall, buy it. I'm glad I did, just keep the torso length in mind when sizing up for it.

Great suit at a decent price.
I live in Australia and had to hope for the best that it'd fit. I'm glad I didn't order a large! I'm about 95 Kg's and 6 foot 4 and I ordered the XL - it fits but maybe just borderline too small.
I got the high vis model and I definitely feel like people can see me on the roads!
Quality is high as the material seems to be quite up to standard and quite breathable. I've worn this around the house with nothing but my undies and it's actually super comfortable. Might a good choice for the casual flasher with the zip that zips from top to just below the crotch. Getting in and out of the suit is a breeze and takes the 10 seconds people are quoting here. My feet are too big to fit with shoes on though and suit restricts my movement and makes it slower to tie up my boots. Still it's probably quicker to get on and off than a pair of riding pants and jacket separately and you can wear whatever you want underneath.
Armor seems to be pretty good quality. Hip armor is foam and probably worthless. Knee armor as many others have said tries to move inwards and im dubious how it'd far in a crash. Some straps like the bicep straps on the arms would do wonders to help hold the knee armor where you want it.
Lastly the legs ride up a lot at the bottom exposing the lower parts of my legs - at the same time it rides up into my crotch. It never quite hurts me nads - but it's a little uncomfortable. I hope in time this will get to be a little less of a problem.
Overall i'm happy - but for riding that isn't communiting i'll be picking up some gear thats a little more stylish and perhaps has better thought out protection for more spirited riding.
The suits perfect for getting too and from work though and anywhere where you can park the bike and store the suit before going to where you need to go wearing whatever you want underneath (even a tux!)

I just ordered one of these
So far I really like it.. I have a 1 piece suit for cooler weather and find myself in the hoot weather... only using my mesh jacket.. not my mesh pants.. just extra bother.. I wanted this 1 piece mesh because I commute and find that I use a 1 piece.. so far this suit is great.. last weekend I was riding in a very bike heavy environment.. crawling through traffic.. a guy walked in front of my bike as he walked from one bar to the next and said you have to be super hot in that suit.. No, I said.. it's mesh.. no issues.. it was humid and about 85.. I was sure I needed the 4XL (out of stock#.. I weigh about 255 and am 6 Ft tall .. The 3XL fits me well and works fine.. The zippers #so far) seem to bee high quality as does everything else with this gear.. I love it. With my REvZilla bucks, I was pleased with the pricing as well..

The product was true to size and was very comfortable. This is my second Olympia suit and would recommend this to anyone looking.

Now you see me!
I am 5'10 and between 175-180 lbs. I got a large. I have had it for few weeks so far and put about 1K commuter miles on the suit, mostly cool mornings and moderate to warm afternoons. A couple of cooler night-time joyrides as well.
The suit is long but once on the bike it fits perfectly and goes over my boots without flapping around or interfering with foot controls. When walking in the suit, I can adjust the Velcro at the bottom so I don't walk on the bottom of the pants. Once the suit is on and you are riding, it is really comfortable.
This suit is easy to put on and take off. Much faster and more efficient than putting on a two piece riding gear set. Takes less than 30 seconds from 'on-the-hanger' to 'on the rider' and vice versa. I put on my boots after getting into the suit.
Big air. This thing is perfect for anything between 55 degrees and 80+ depending on what you wear underneath and your tolerances.
As others have said, the knee armor tends to move inward. At first, it was so frustrating that I considered selling the suit. Finally, I was able to make it work by just standing on the foot-pegs, adjusting the knees and sitting back down. That sounds simple, but it really solves it. For what it's worth, the knee-pads and the suit have broken in over time and especially once I re-adjusted the pads to the correct height setting for riding, I don't have this problem any more and I no longer have to mess with them to get them to sit right. The hip armor is a joke but easily replaced with something more substantial.
See pictures. It's bright!
I would recommend this for anyone who commutes. To me, this would be the perfect application for this type of gear. Another good use for this suit is if you are just going for a joyride and not planning to get off the bike until you get back home. Obviously, this is also perfect for long distance riding or road trips. For going out on your bike casually or for spending the day out and about, you don't really want to be wearing a neon full body suit off the bike in a restaurant or in the movies. You'll have a hard time cramming this into a saddlebag so you need to have a place to keep it when you're off the bike.

A little bit long for me but nothing that cannot be solved by adjusting the lower velcro.
The only reason I don't give this product 5 stars is the protection. The hip pads are worthless.
The others are OK but, personally, I wouldn't mind paying more for more robust ones.
Yes, I definitely recommend this product.
PS: I would love to see Olympia offer protection upgrade for this suit.

If I could have created the best motorcyle suit this would be it. Sensational fit. I am 6' 80Kg and it is such a great fit with no mods required in a size medium. Airflow around top of body is fabulous. Lower areas are not as good but this is probably due to ferring rather than suit. Looks great and the added adjustments makes it feel like a custom suit. I could have spent a grand on the BMW equivalent but it would not fit as well or have the same airflow. Great gear!!
