REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit
Great one piece rainsuit
I rode with the rainsuit on for about 16 miles in a steady rain and did not get wet. Temperature was 66 degrees and I did not break a sweat with the suit overtop of my jacket and pants.

The best rain gear hands down!
I just returned from Americade where it was raining heavily on Friday. I could have sold a dozen of these suits had I been a salesman. So many people walked up to me to say what a great looking one piece suit and ask me about how well it worked. The construction is great and kept me dry from neck to feet. I chose the safety yellow and black color to give me high visibility when on the road. I was asked where they could get one and of course told them to go to the RevZilla website. When you pair this suit with a pair of the TourMaster Solution WP boots, it makes an unbeatable combination in my opinion. I highly recommend both products.

Needs several fixes and adjustments
I am 5’6” tall, 160lbs with an athletic build. I ride a stock 2006 Ninja 650R. I originally ordered a size medium, but it was huge so I returned the medium and reordered a small (Revzilla has a great return/ exchange system). Underneath the suit, I wear a Rev’It Ignition 2 Jacket with shoulder, elbow and back armor. On the bottom I wear jeans and TCX X-Action touring boots. Overall the suit fits well, but there could be more room in the seat and less room in the cuffs of the pants. The Ninja 650R has a relatively upright riding posture but on a bike that has a more tucked in position, the lack of room in the seat will cause the front of the suit to dig into your throat as the fabric pulls down. The boots I wear are touring boots with a sleek profile, the leg cuffs on the suit are huge and cannot be adjusted tightly enough to stop them from flapping or catching on lower parts of the bike like the pegs, shifter, but this can be stopped by adding a reflective strip around your ankles (think reflective ankle straps like cyclists use). Also, the collar on the suit is very high which it should be to stop water from entering the top of your jacket, but the collar isn’t lined very well. The collar should be lined in a soft microfiber or neoprene material to stop it chafing on your neck. The zipper also digs into my adam’s apple/ throat and my facial hair gets caught in it because the closure isn’t lined/ dosen’t have an adequate zipper garage. Now, on to waterproofness…for commuting in light rain at city speeds to highway speeds the suit is fine for an hour or so, but any longer or at freeway speeds, the suit will fail. Water enters through the leg cuffs (which can’t be tightened enough), the lap area where the zipper ends and the butt from contact with a wet seat. The suit is okay, but there are a lot of negatives. Here are the pros: the styling is great! Clean and subdued. The logos and reflectivity are nice as well. The wrists and shoulders can be adjusted tightly using the velcro straps, so no flapping around. The front zipper/ flap system is easy to use. It would be nice to see magnets vs. velcro though. The suit packs down relatively small using a compression sack about the size of a softball when the straps are cinched down (the stock sack is ok, but not small enough). Overall it gets the job done but I bet there are better items out there.

Good for Florida summers
Have not had a chance to wear this in heavy rain but it worked well in a light rain. It's easy to put on a desktop fits well.

Excellent carry-on rain suit.
2 days after buying was caught in a sudden downpour. I was expecting rain, so luckily, I already had my waterproof boots on. I went under cover, and I pulled on my rain suit. Drove for 30 minutes in heavy rain to get home and arrived nice and dry except for some water that got in the cuffs (wasn't wearing gloves). Very happy. Wish I had ordered the black instead of hi-viz. I'm more likely to be seen in the hi-viz, but I feel like a fluorescent banana wearing it.

one of the best products I have ever owned, bar none
The rain suit was tested today in torrential rain for 3 hours at highway speeds. You would be nuts not to own this suit. I have the high-vis, and it is one of the best products I own. Why? well whoever said it's not waterproof must have forgotten to zip it up. It is rubber lined: it is impossible that it is not waterproof. One piece is functional. I can't understand why anyone would buy a 2 piece. I wore this today over body armor with a klim camel back. I put it on over my mx boots, which were a tight fit, to get on, but who would buy a suit that they need to take their boots off to get on? Imagine hopping around without shoes in a cloud break. The design is brilliant. This makes me want to try buying other products by the RevIt.

Bright & Compact
The Hi-Viz version is very bright when you need it most, and it easily rolls up into the included pouch.

REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit
Great rain suit from REV'IT!
Very light but sturdy and well designed.
Fit is great. I am 5'11 170lbs and usually wears Medium.
My REV'IT jacket is a Large and pants Medium.
I went with Large for the suit and the fit is perfect.
Very bright color.
I don't know about durability yet. Protected me very well in light rain.
Can be also used a windbreaker on colder days.
One thing, I wish the legs would close tighter.
Overall, a really great rain suit.
Excellent service from Rezvilla also.
