Nelson-Rigg Arctic One-Piece Insulated Suit
The suit fits over all my gear. I may look puffy but I do feel very comfortable with the suit on.

Very good all around.
Great suit for the money. Better than I had expected honestly.
Warm and comfortable.
Wrist elastic is tight keeping the air out of the sleeves.
Elastic stirrups keep the legs from riding up.
There are accessible pockets on the outside of the suit. Be sure and put your wallet in there as you can't get to your clothes once you're in the suit :)
A little tricky to get into at first. You'll want to put your boots on after you suit up as there really isn't enough room to suit up with your boots on.
I was worried about the fit. I am 6'3" tall, 265 lbs. with a 34" inseam. Generally I have to shop in the Alien/Orangutan section.
I ordered the 4XL and it fits perfectly especially when in the riding position ( street cruiser ).
I have a 60-80 minute commute at highway speeds and at 40 degrees I was very comfortable.
Totally recommend this suit.
Oh and Rev had it to me in like 2 days which was even more awesome.

Warm and comfortable but quality lacking
Product is very warm and comfortable once you have it on but one the legs tore very easily while pulling leg over my boots. you have to come almost completely out of suit to reach in your pocket or use restroom

Beware of fit!!
I'll admit I never actually used this suit. I was drawn to it because of the price and the retro styling. Unfortunately, I did not pay enough attention to the "arctic" aspect of the suit. Living in a warm weather climate I don't have much need for insulation. Assuming you have some gear underneath, I would imagine it to be very warm. Wearing it briefly inside, it was more than adequate for warmth.
However, beware of the fit. The torso runs on the small side. The cuffs are elasticized and are extremely small. Anyone with large forearms or wrists would probably find it uncomfortable. On the flip side, the legs are rather baggy. I would think they would catch quite a bit of air riding at hiway speed. They have zippered legs openings to fit over boots easily, but stepping into the suit can be a bit of a chore because the zipper does not go down quite far enough.
As for utility, I thought the oversized map pockets and flap pockets on the chest were a nice touch.

This suit really keeps the wind out in cold weather,but it fits really strange
I bought the suit mid October It works great keeps the wind and water out .I'm 5 foot 8,I bought the small size and it fit really well with a hoody n long sleeves under but it fits really really strange in the hip area.like big n baggy or maybe im just skinny?However all in all it's a good deal for the price.Its now december 13th and im still ridin with no worries of staying warm n dry.it will also roll or fold up small enough to backpack it if you don't need to wear it all day.

Good bang for the buck
I bought this for a one piece rain suit and did not really catch the artctic part so when it arrived it blew me away. I tried it on and broke out sweating just checking it out. I have used it alone on 30 degree mornings and it is great especially the legs and mid section. I will be using a heated liner and gloves when it gets colder the combination will be perfect. As far as the fit Iam a shorter guy with a big chest so I needed a large it barely fits on the top but the length is for a guy over six foot. I just took it to a tailor shop today to have the length altered and a few other adjustments made like a zippered opening at the waste for heated liner cable all totaled the alteration will be thirty bucks and I still believe this was a great deal.

Very Good Bang for the Buck
I read some of the reviews before I purchased this suit & they were correct. The zipper doesn't come down far enough & the cuffs are too tight (if you have thick wrists). They missed the mark slightly with the comfort & styling cues but it does exactly what I bought it for. It keeps me toasty warm on cold morning rides. 38 degrees this morning @ 63 mph average speed for 30min. commute to work & everything inside the suit was tropical. I do plan to see if the cuffs can be altered & a longer zipper can be installed.

Superb product and really happy with it and the service!
Only down side is that it is one size too big, But i guess with full winter gear on under if it will be better.
