Firstgear Thermo 1-Piece Suit
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.

Excellent air seals make this exceptionally warm and dry.
If you're willing to forego CE armor, this suit is a screaming deal in cold-weather riding clothes. Most of the year I use a serious riding jacket with armor and a zip-out insulated liner and an electric liner. I was getting tired of climbing into all that plus insulated pants in the winter. The Firstgear Thermo has relatively thin insulation, but it seals so well that it is nearly airtight. To my surprise, I haven't even needed to wear the electric liner (much less turn it on) for temps above freezing. (I do recommend a windproof neck gator for really cold weather).
Rain protection also is excellent.
With a little practice, it's very quick and easy to don and doff.
Because of the color, I do wear a Spidi hi-vis vest on top.

This suit will keep you warm
This suit will definitely keep you warm during winter riding.
I live in Washington, and when it is cold and raining, this suit is great. The only time I have ever been wet was during a massive rainstorm, and water came in in the groin area. I don't think any suit would have kept it out.
Easy to put on, true to size, a great suit!

as advertised. great for cold commuting
I've been using this about a month now on my daily commute, rain or shine. Keeps me warm on 30 degree mornings. Very comfortable. Very happy with the purchase. Using this suit instead of many layers of gear allows much greater freedom of movement on and off the bike.
Modifications I've done to make it even better:
1. I added a neoprene neck seal to keep air from going down the top of the jacket.
2. I added elbow, shoulder and knee armor.
