REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit
Fits ok...let my lap get wet
I ordered an XL due to all the advice on this site. I am 6'0" and 215 lbs. the sleeves are not long enough to reach past the sleeves on my XL Joe Rocket Ion Phoenix jacket, so the tips of the sleeves poked out no matter how tight I tried to make the wrist Velcro. The Joe Rocket jacket fits pretty slim, so I was surprised by this. Needless to say although there is a garter for your lap, the water pooled up there and eventually seeped through. I made sure all the flaps and zippers and Velcro were set before I left from work today. Everything else was pretty dry, but my crotch was soaked from the rain that leaked in. I'll try it again once more, but I'm not sold at the moment that this thing will do its job.

unbelievable quality for such a low price
I did not expect to get such a great product for the amount of money that I spent and since it was rain gear and I would not be using it much I figured it wouldn't matter.

I was disappointed with the quality of this suit for the price. Just a plastic suit that will have you sweating immediately. Zero air flow or any sign of technology in this suit. Should cost about half what they are charging at the most.

I had a reason to use this yesterday as we got about 1 inch of rain during my 30 minute commute. The inside of the suit was wet, but fortunately only my arms were anything more than damp. It's compact (fits under my seat) and only for an emergency and not what I wear when I leave knowing it's going to rain, so given the conditions that's not terrible. The neck should have some fabric/material to protect the skin from the zipper which is really annoying, but wasn't terrible for 30 minutes. I should have spent more money and got a better suit. If you just need quick, portable, and affordable protection this may be for you but if you can afford a better suit I would recommend getting a better suit.

Just simply doesn't keep you dry.
I have had this suit for almost a year now, and I must say I'm pretty disappointed. I honestly hate to give a bad review, but this thing is just awful. I live in Florida and my bike is my only vehicle. If you don't know already, it rains at least once a week here so I need a suit that actually keeps me dry. This is not that suit. Right out of the box the suit seems great. Feels sturdy and waterproof. It packs up really small and is lightweight. I was excited for rain when I got it. Then I used it. I might as well have been wearing nothing. The water just instantly seeps in to the fabric and then wicks it into your whatever you're wearing. It would probably work great during like a sun shower but in actual rain it's worthless. I have been soaked every single time I've worn the thing. ( at least 35 times since buying.) I don't know why I keep expecting it to keep me dry. i'm going to try and seal it with a waterproofing spray, but the fact that I have to do that defeats the purpose of buying a rain suit. this thing is not ok and the price should be dropped or Rev should stop carrying it. Or maybe it's a great suit and mine just sucked? Who knows?

Fairly easy to put on; totally waterproof and breathable.
I needed to use this suit with about 140 miles to go on my return trip from a Bike Week in the northeast. It was a little tough to get the shoulders of the suit to slide over the padding in the shoulders of my jacket, but once I reached over and pulled the front side of the zipper opening forward, it went right on. The zipper is a little tricky to close as it wants to eat the material on the sides and jam. The key is to go slow and guide it all the way up. Once on, I was dry and comfortable in a steady rain at 70 mph+ for about 80 miles. When the rain stopped, eventhough it was just cloudy, I left the suit on until I got home. It was dry in virtually no time. I have the HI-VIz suit and in the reduced visibility of rain and clouds it just glows.
Taking the suit off was just as easy if you go slow and guide the zipper.with your finger. I would certainly recommend this suit to my friends,

Loving this suit
If you're looking for a durable and affordable rain suit, this is it. I have worn it through Southern storms, the ones with grape sized raindrops and it held very well. One comment I read before purchasing was about the zipper getting stuck when opening and closing. Well, the flap underneath the zipper is meant for added protection so if you simply place a finger or two under the zipper as a guide when opening/closing, it won't stick.
I love the external pocket, its large, secure and weatherproof of course. It's a great suit and if you get the yellow, even a guy on the moon will see you- great visibility awareness.

Bad fit poor materials
The first storm I rode in with it it leaked on my waist area, later that afternoon on my ride home from work the Velcro on the right leg tore off just from wind. Will make a great suit with a few modifications though!
