Nelson-Rigg SR-6000 Stormrider Rain Suit
Awesome rain protection
Ordered the same size that the rest of my gear I wear and it fits over my jacket and pants just fine. I am 6ft 1in tall at 170 lbs and large was a good fit for me. But remember guys this is rain gear, its not meant to breathe a lot so it can keep out the water. It has a hidden hood built in the collar which is nice. As long as you unbutton and wear the hood under you're helmet you'll stay dry from any run off from your helmet down your back. The pants seemed a little bit short for my long legs but the bungee straps that fit over your boots work well with keeping your pants down and dry. Found this gear to work very well. Keeps me dry an I bought the Hi-Viz so I am more noticeable. Overall a great purchase from REVZILLA!

I would not recommend for a harley rider with hot exhausts (no heat shields anywhere), but makes a nice inexpensive rain suit otherwise.

Great Inexpensive Emergency Rain Gear
I bought this suit specifically for a trip to the Sierra Madre Oriental Mountains in Mexico. We based out of Galeana, NL, MX and did day rides every day in the mountains on adventure bikes. I was on my 08 R1200gs. I almost didn't get rain gear and just bought this suit as a last minute decision. Glad I did because it rained every single day (not all day mind you but at for at least an hour during each daily ride).
We were focusing mainly on dirt roads / paths so keeping "mainly dry" is good enough.
This rain gear packs in a relatively small size and is not too difficult to put on. My gear is mainly XL so I bought XXXL in rain gear to fit over my stuff. I over shot a bit and could have probably fit in the XXL but as stated above it was a last minute buy and there would be no time for exchanges so went a size higher to be sure. It kinda worked out because I was able to put the jacket over my backpack as well.
This is not fancy rain gear but it works, and is reasonably durable. I didn't care if the rain gear lasted past the week I was in Mexico but after a weak of reasonably hard use it is still in my tank bag ready to go and I expect to get at least a year of use out of it.
Great product for the money all in all.

Pants run a little small, but kept me mostly dry
I have a 30.5 inseam and the large seem a little short. They weren't too bad off the bike, but pulled real tight on the stir-up once I straddled the bike or sat down. They kept my legs dry though.
Water made it in around the wrists but with the amount of rain that was falling, it's understandable. They were well worth the money.

This product just needs a little tweaking
Nice style, I had problems with the pant zippers right out of the box. They were catching on the inner flap and snagging the zippers. I took Gorilla tape and ran it under the zippers. Now they work fine. The fit is snug with jeans and a light jacket underneath. I am 5' 10' 190# and bought the large. Keeps you dry in normal showers, have not been in downpour yet.

I can see the light!
While I haven't tested this product for its waterproof abilities yet, I can attest that is great at stopping the cold* wind. My biggest problem with it is that when I was inspecting the seams on the hood (I didn't even know it had a hood) I could see light shining through. If I can see light, I'm pretty sure I'm going to feel water, and while I do not plan to use the hood (that's what helmets are for), it does call into question the integrity of the rest of the suit.
*cold as in 50's. This isn't thermal. Give me a break, it's Texas and it's cold to me.

Good suit but fits small
Overall I think this is a well made suit. It appears to be tough and it is light enough so I rated it fairly high.
The only thing is, I wish I'd read more reviews that it fit so small, specifically, the pants are short and the jacket waist elastic is very strong.
I'm only 5'10" and about 190 lbs. so I ordered a Large by the size chart. An XL may mean the pants are long enough but then the jacket shouders would be far too big. It's strangely proportioned. Can't be me. Of course it can't be me. ;-)
The pants fit fine around my waist, the elastic is strong and it holds tightly but there is plenty of stretch to fit my 36" waist with jeans on. I could fit even more under it if I needed to. There is plenty of material in the waist, seat and legs.
BUT the length is so weird. My inseam is about 31" and the loops that fit under my feet are very tight, pulling the legs taught even when I'm standing. It will be impossible to wear them while riding without pulling them down and ripping out the crotch.
The zippers on the bottom of the legs come nearly to my knee and tthe opening would be fine for accessing with shoes or boots except there is material in there so the leg bottoms only widen, they don't open all the way. My shoes bind going in meaning I can't just slip the pants on.
The jacket fits perfectly on the arms, shoulders and the length is fine. The elastic waist is very strong and pulls the waist very tight even when I'm wearing a t-shirt & I don't have a pot belly. I can fit a leather riding jacket under it just fine but the waist is very tight. Don't get me wrong, it still has plenty of stretch and can go bigger but the elastic is so strong it is tight at all times.
Worst thing about the suit is the length of the pants. I've had it up for sale locally but no bites. I would buy another one but in XL. That says something I guess.

Good bang for the buck and packs away nice and small
Good bang for the buck and packs away nice and small, ordered XL and it fits perfectly over my XL jacket, no need to order the next size up. Feels comfortable in the riding position.
