Firstgear Thermo 1-Piece Suit
This really is an excellent buy for the money. I probably haven't spent better money as far as value is concerned. It is warm. I mean really warm! You would have to ride in sub 20 degree weather to get cold in this suit. I have seen 30 degrees in it with a Nike fleece under it. I don't even think the fleece was necessary. Very water proof, I live in Washington trust me I know. I ride in the rain, alot. Disregard any review that says it has good ventilation. It has NO ventilation, no zippered openings, no vents, nothing. It does fold nicely into a backpack however because it has no armor (so don't decide to "lay er down" ). If you have a light (textile Joerocket) jacket you can fold into said backpack you can switch for warmer weather. The fit is large and catches a lot of wind. I am 5.11, 180 athletic build I bought the large check the pics for fit. Should have maybe tried a medium.

I bought this because I ride all year round and it gets a bit chilly here in the northeast. I've worn this in 11 degree temperatures on an hour commute to work and I arrive nice and warm

good cold weather suit
I live in sicily and I bought this suit to ride my bike to work in the winter time. Definitely worth it. I have onky used it twice but unless its below 50 I would sweat in it. Im 182lbs and 5'11" the medium feels a little right when a lean forward on the bike going at high speeds. And I would definitely not wear a jacket or leathers under it. I does not breath whatsoever hence rain and cold weather suit. Style could be better. Maybe different colors but overall above avaerage specially for the price. Plus it got to me in about three weeks which is pretty good for fpo address.

warm and dry
This suit is a great deal for the money. Fits great, sizing chart is right on, I'm 5'5" 155 and the small was a perfect fit. Easy to get on and off. Has kept me warm and dry on my 90 mi commute. Freeway speeds at 45 degrees and rain and I was dry and warm. If something happens to this one I will definitely replace it.

So far so good!
I've only been able to go out in the suit a couple times when it was cold enough. First trip was 28 degrees and the only thing that got cold was my finger tips and toes. This obviously at no fault of the suit. I do wish it was a bit more snug around the torso. I had to get a large because I'm 6'3, but at 200 pounds don't need all the extra room. Never the less it's really comfortable and really easy to take off and on with your shoes on (the zippers on the legs zip WAY up).
Get a good pair of gloves and a thick pair or socks and you can ride in just about any weather. (Haven't tested in rain yet, but I hear it's okay).

Very good product!
This is a garment I've had for over 10 years. My wife now rides with me, and I know she'll never get cold or wet in this. I have had years of warmth, and have only had to get hand and face protection each season. Great product!

Great suit. Very warm.
I used this suit for my 40 mile commute in 40-50 degree (F) weather at 60 mph. It worked well with a set of thermals underneath. I'm am usually a cold person but this suit makes me feel very warm. Now I'm using it in my 14 mile commute in 20-35 degree (F) weather at no more than 40 mph (due to road speed limits). It still works great! Now I just need to find a good helmet that seals better. I highly recommend this product. It protects me from the cold weather as well as I hoped it would. Well worth the money. I'm 5'8", 145lbs and the Small fit perfect.
