Firstgear Thermo 1-Piece Suit
Best winter protection EVER!!!
This is my first winter protection suit and I LOVE it!! The lowest temperature I have been able to try it in so far is 18F at 5am at highway speeds for about 15minutes and I wasn't cold at all. I only needed my t shirt, fleece jacket and my summer armored jacket. Trust me, me and the cold don't mix at all! And this suit helps me win all my cold riding battles! Wish it had a little bit easier access to my jeans pockets but it has 2 good pockets on the legs in which I can put my wallet/phone in. There is a small section between the front chest zipper/Velcro and the neck collar Velcro (size of my pinky finger) in which the air seeps in. I wish the zipper Velcro strip would have been put on in a way that would meet with the collar Velcro to form an "airtight" connection.
I am 5'10" with a 30" waist and size Medium works great to fit over my work clothes and even fit my armored jacket.

Great suit and great value
I'm 5'9" 150lba and the small fits me perfect. I use to ride 8 miles a day in the cold wet Seattle weather and it always keeps me warm and dry. Very warm. I dropped my bike around a fairly low speed corner on some ice and not a scratch on the suit. Cannot be beat for the price

Warm and worth the price.
I bought this suit to extend my riding time. I live in Iowa with cold, windy winters. Ordered this on sale for $170 with free shipping. Got it in the mail in 5 days. Next day was a heat wave of 33 degrees in January. Put on this suit, thick wool socks, boots, neoprene head/neck/face mask, and some FLY AURORA winter riding gloves I also bought from Revz. I was warm! This suit blocks all wind from getting to your body! I rode for 5 hours on the highway 55-75mph, trails, and in town. The highway was comfortable, maybe a little "chilly" but not cold. Low speeds in town I got a little warm. I was on my KLR which had no windshield. All I had on underneath was jeans, a white tee, and light hoodie. When I was on the highway and felt a little chill, it was at my ankles where wind got through my boots, and the tips of my fingers (just the tip)... Not the suit. The Ankles of the suit have elastic that keeps it air tight and prevents the legs from riding up. The wrists have Velcro that lets you tighten it up and put your gauntlet style gloves over the wrists so no cold can infiltrate your cocoon. The leg holes zip up to the hip and the front zips down to the waist. I was able to don and doff the suit with my size 13 boots on without getting caught up. The suit will close up tight, or you can loosen the wrists and zip up OR down the legs to let some air in (top and bottom zip on the legs). I am 5'11" 200 lbs and ordered the large. The fit is good (for a snow suit). Id say plenty of room for me to grow a few inches. If I were 5'10" it may be to long. There are a couple Velcro straps at the sides to tighten or let out the waist. I haven't rode in rain yet, but the wet slush on my lower legs did not bleed though and get my jeans wet.
Warm, Inexpensive, Front leg pockets, Warm, Inexpensive...
Snow suit fit- A little bulky... Would be nice to have a bottom zip on the front to crack it open for air flow or to drain some fluids on the trail.
I docked the style due to the bulkiness... Its not a custom or athletic fit. It wont make your wife tear it off you.
I docked the protection because there is none. Its a cold weather suit, but you can wear your protection underneath.
I gave it excellent air flow because it blocks air flow, like it is supposed to do.

I ride on weekends in Arizona. It gets cold up north, 30s but that doesn't stop us from riding. I wear this suit over my leather pants and jacket when it gets in the 50s. Got as cold as 32 and I was still very warm during spirited riding, Just wish it had hand warmer pockets. Wear an xl in jacket and the xl in this snug getting on but fits well.

Could not be happier!
Absolutely love this suite! I purchased it to extend my riding during the winter here in Wisconsin. My daily commute to work is 63 miles one way, I've ridden in sub freezing temp. and have not gotten cold, not even cool! The first ride with the suit I only rode about 30 miles, and I only wore a t-shirt and sweat pants, perfectly comfortable! I highly recommend purchasing it! As for fit, I ordered a 3X, I'm 6'3", pushing 300lbs. and it fits me perfectly.

Every time I have worn the suit it has leaked in the krouch and belly area through the zipper.....

Keeps you warm!
I live in Southern Louisiana, so we don't get a lot of very cold weather, but when it got cold, this suit kept me warm in mid-30 degree temps. The first suit I purchased was a little too large, and replacement for a proper fit was very easy and hassle-free. The only feature that is a little difficult to use is the Velcro/elastic ankle cuffs, but with a little practice I was able to get them right. I'd recommend this product!

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.
