REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit
BUY IT, its the best
I don't know why other review call it a bust, let me tell you my story, I rode my Vespa this entire winter in New York City, it was cold, wet and snow all winter, the worst in 50 years. By wearing this suit, it blocks all the wind and gives me an extra 10 degrees of riding weather, along with Gerbing heated gloves, I was warmer riding my Vespa than my normal walk from 68th Madison ave to 37st and 8th Avenue.
I have use it in pouring rain and I am as dry as can be inside.
It was the best $119 I have every spent.

Price does not equal quality
For the price of $120, one would expect that a waterproof suit would accomplish its single goal; one would be wrong. After half an hour ride in moderate rain, my jeans' crotch was wet and it looked like I've had a "little accident". Also, the knees were starting to get damp.
The XL suit that i got for myself (6'3" 160lb) fit pretty well when I was OFF the bike (although I've felt a bit constrained with a backpack underneath.) When I mount my bike, the suit's legs ride up and expose the bottom of my jeans resulting in them getting wet.
Do not purchase unless you want to be disappointed; I'm not sure what other reviewers are thinking when giving this product a high rating.

This rain suit is a Bust!!!
This rain suit is a Bust. In just two uses the lap bib torn from its self in the inside. I would think that a preimum item would have better seams. This rain suit now just lets the rain pool in my Lap. The fit is also very tight in the Arms. Please take some advise and find another Rain Suit.

As with various Rev'It products I have had or seen friends use, this product has been a let down. The suit itself is waterproof and very visible. However, the zipper broke off after 3 uses and I bought a Large which barely fits over my size 50 Dainese textile jacket. Rev'It's higher end products might be better made, however I have seen 3 products (gloves, over-pants and this suit) fall apart from normal use. Just buy Dainese, its actually worth the money.

Good suit poor stitching
I use this suit 5 days a week commuting , for size I bought an extra large, I'm 6' and 180 so it's quite long but I needed the extra room for my business suit and ofer jacket under the rain suit, this works well. And after taking my boots off its easy to step in and out of the rain suit. I have been using the suit for Six five months, the stitching in the zipper started coming out after about 30 days of use, and just keeps coming out. The rain suit also has Velcro along the seem so I'm am just using that for now unfortunately this makes for a not so rain tight fit. For the money they could have stitched in the zipper with a higher quality stitch. For an extra 30 cents they could have made tis a great rain suit. I will eventually bring mine to a talor and have them stitch it correctly. If you buy one just take it to the talor before you use it so you don't get stuck out in the rain with a wide open rain suit.

Wouldn't go without it
I bought this after going through and returning a couple of those rain gear suits from my local dealership. I ended up deciding from reviews etc that this seemed like a good bang for the buck and it is a brand that I trust. I was absolutely right!
This is a great rain suit. It does fit fairly large I thought but I don't mind that as it means I can very easily get it over whatever I am wearing. It also doesn't have that stupid mesh in there so getting it on without it catching and giving you a headache is really easy... you can even do it without taking footwear off.
The best part is... unlike other rain gear... IT DOESN'T LEAK. No... nothing got in at all. First week I had it I had to use it in a heavy rain storm coming home from work and I stayed totally dry. I couldn't be happier!

Real Bang for the Buck
A very nice full rain suit, quick and easy fit under heavy rain and will make you arrive home dry (if you are able to foreseen the incoming rain).
Very compact and easy to put back on the little bag that comes with it in order to get back to riding.
