Olympia Avenger One Piece Mesh Suit
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!!

Knee armor does not stay over knee - turns inward.
I would really like this one-piece suit except, as several other reviewers have noted (and I should have listened to), the design of the legs cause the knee armor to turn so far toward the inside of the leg that the knee would not be protected in the event of an accident. Also, the armor is not very good - I replaced the knee, back & hip armor (the hip armor is a joke - the thinnest, least dense foam I've ever seen - it had to have been put in there as a joke)

Sweet mystery of life, now that I've found yooooooooo!
This suit is the cat's pajamas*. I can't believe I wasted so many years with 2 piece setups. The mesh lets air in like crazy, BUT you can just slip on an outer layer and BOOM: cold weather SOLVED. Same for rain.
Really, if you're even thinking about 1-piece, do it. If you're thinking about textile 1-piece, do it. If you're like me and overheat readily, thinking mesh textile 1-piece, THIS IS THE SUIT. Stop screwing around, buy the Olympia Avenger. Sell your other gear on eBay (look for my 2 jackets, pants, and chaps coming soon.)
Sizing: Anthony's video is BANG on, at 6' 190lbs 34"w 33"inseam 38" chest, I would use a medium. However (sorry Anthony) I ordered and love my large because I can wear street clothes under it. Note: the main killer in 1-piece suit sizing is the collar-to-crotch fit and the only way to judge is to try them on. Yes, you can tolerate "too tight standing, ok sitting" but I wouldn't recommend it. So don't guess, test.
PS: researched this suit all summer, never found a better price including eBay.
*No cats have been harmed in the making of these suits or this review.
