REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit
It does what it needs to do.
I had this for two years. 2013 went from Michigan to Deadhorse. 17 days, 12 days of rain. 2014 Michigan to the Trans Labrador Highway. 9 days, 9 days of rain. I Live in Michigan, lots of rain. Will keep you dry. If it's hot out keep moving. If it's cold, freezing, out it's great. The fit is a little loose but that makes it easy to get on and off. Mine was in yellow, kids will point and laugh at you but you're dry. It would have lasted another year if I hadn't slipped in some mud and laid the bike down with the exhaust against my leg. It does melt. I WILL get a new one.

Does it's job, good quality for the price
So far, I haven't had an issue with the water protection and it folds into a fairly small pouch that's easy to take with you.
You definitely won't get any attention from the ladies in this thing, it's not a very flattering cut. For that, you'll just have to wait for better weather.
Overall, it seems like a great value for the price.

Good performance not 100% WP
It is a good product, although is not 100% WP, works perfect in arms, legs and chest and it's fits really good with jackets and pants. The lowest point is the seat, is the only part that is not WP. When I finished me ride it was very damp.
hope is usufull.

Good not great, worked for what I needed.
I live in California (San Jose), not the rain forest. I ride year round, and previously I've managed the occasional ride in the rain using the protection provided from liners in my two-piece textile over-wear. But before leaving for a trip to British Columbia this summer on my R1200RT, I thought it prudent to have something more to the task, and bought the REVIT Pacific H20 for myself and my wife (riding pillion.) That paid of when we hit a veritable monsoon near the WA/BC border and rode through the deluge in the suits (fortunately I read the sky ahead correctly and we stopped and suited up before we got into the rain). We rode for about an hour through rain that was so hard the roads we flooding and cars were pulling off the road to wait it out.
How did they work? In summary: Ok, not fantastic, but well enough. The crotch was the weak spot, as other reviewers have stated. I stayed almost completely dry, just a little damp, but for some reason my wife fared a bit worse, but still on the "damp" side of things - not soaked, and again, just in the crotch area. But in consideration of what we had been driving through, we really had no complaints. I'm sure that if we had been relying on the liners with our regular textile over-gear, we would have been water-logged.
Used the suit again on the way back down the WA and OR coastline in less-torrential conditions, and stayed completely dry. For the money, and for my use, it was a great deal and I'd buy again. If I was riding year round in say, Seattle, then I'd probably make the investment for a more highly reviewed (and expensive) option. But for my needs, this was a good price/performance pick.

Damp lags for $120 - You decide what you can tolerate?
If a product claims 100% waterproof then you expect to be dry after a ride in the wet. I rode 2.5 hours in the rain from O.C. NJ to New Hope PA and overall the suit met my expectations for what I spent in $$. From the waist up - Completely Dry, arms included... From the waist down, legs were damp, wet but not soaked. My TCX boots claim waterproof and they are, my feet were 100% dry. I suggest Rev'it (really like their products) improve the pants from the waist down OR remove 100% waterproof from the advertising. My Arai Defiant kept my head 100% dry with some venting... While no gear expert here - I believe that the leg bottoms are the problem. The flair is too wide, the velcro attachments only allow them to close so much. That is not enough. Too much open area. The sleeves close tight. Neck tight. The water goes to the bottom of your pants and then absorbs the way up to the thighs almost to the crotch after 2.5hrs... Unlike other reviews I found the zipper to be 100% free of leaks and the crotch guard area was 100% dry on removal. So maybe this was improved... I would recommend the suit since I did ride 2.5 hours in a pretty bad storm so all in all damp legs beats torn pants... For a quicker storm or a much shorter ride (I had not choice in this case) I would have been damp to the knees. Rev'It must fix the leg closure. For $120 to only have damp legs after 2.5hrs in a pretty bad storm isn't such a raw deal. I didn't see what looked like a better alternative on Revzilla after reading other reviews. Revzilla should find an alternative that works and let us know.

So far so good
I was very concerned about the product sizing. I purchased a Large Rain Suit to use over a Large AeroStitch (42L) one-piece suit.

It leaks every time, very limited protection.
I tried to close it securely by being careful to close the sipper and align and pressing the Velcro, but I got wet every time.
I am surprise that this is happening. never had a problem with revzilla's products.
