REV'IT! Pacific H2O 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.

Good Performance for the Money
I've been riding long enough to remember when there were no such things as motorcycle rainsuits and now we have so many to pick from, it's hard to know what to choose.
This is a good choice and an excellent value for the money. Two of them roll up compactly and fit in a tank bag with room to spare. It's a little tricky to get on over a riding suit, so plan on suiting up before the rain starts.
Fit is good and it has Velcro closures everywhere they're needed. The rain gusset is a great idea, but it will catch in the zipper if you're not careful when zipping up. Rain protection is excellent and so is breathability.
For the money, this one is hard to beat, even if it lasts only a couple of seasons.

Just got this, and tried it on over my leathers (leather jacket & pants, with CE hard armor) and fit as described (buy your size- it's cut to go OVER gear of that size).
Went on easily, the yellow really is that horrid yellow that warns sea creatures of jelly fish toxin, so it's exactly what you want on the 580 when the weather goes sour.

Quick and DRY!
A few long days soaked at work and I was anxious for a dry suite. I watched the video on here and saw how quick it went on and decided to give a one piece a shot after trying a few different top/bottoms over the years. It definitely goes on quick, although i did have a minor struggle getting the top portion over my armored jacket at first. I'm 5'10" 175lb and got a large. Typical one-size-up with revit. Two minor complaints... I wish the legs could velcro tighter at the bottom (but they are made to go over a boot) and the gator gets caught in the zipper a lot when trying to zip up (small trade off for keeping the boys dry with forward controls). Very happy to be warm and dry all day at work riding late into the season and prob through the "winter" here in Austin. So far, I am extremely happy with everything i have from revit and Revzilla is a fantastic retailer for them.
