Olympia Stealth One Piece Mesh Tech Suit
A good commuter suit
The suit is fairly comfortable and has good venting. The dark suit with the neon accent is more visible than expected and works well. The fit is a tad snug in key areas and limits use on sportbikes, but is great fro standards and so on

Lignt and Easy
Easy on and off...very comfortable with no restrictions of movement. Adjustments make fitting custom. Only complaint, which is just an annoyance is the upper arm velcro adjustment strip can get hung up on your waist adjustment velcro. Same happens with my Olympia jacket.. Doesn't happen frequently, but when it does, its just a minor annoyance. Great product overall. Protection in the padding is not robust, but I believe adequate. Great suit. I use my Aerostich when the weather is cooler.

Well made, runs a tad tight in torso.
Very well made. I am 5'9", 30" inseam, and weigh 215. I ordered the XLand it is a little snug around the belly but works since I won't be layering under it. I had the legs shortened by 2" (Cost $38) and is now perfect. Flows good air. Knee pads do ride a little to the inside but may be perfect in the event of a get-off. Fairly easy to get on and off but no Roadcrafter.

If you live in a hot, dry environment and want great protection this is the suit to own.
I ride in SE NM in the heat and under abundant sun exposure. This suit is well vented to keep you cool when riding and does not over heat you when stopped in traffic.
I needed to lengthen the hem due to my longer than normal leg to torso ratio and Olympia provided the extra material. This company really does support its customers.

Just what I'd been looking for
What a great find. I commute 60 miles a day and have been searching for just the right suit for my drive. Some suits are too expensive and ugly; some charge extra for the name on the suit; others are just too difficult to get in and out of; this suit is cool looking, fits perfectly, is easy to put on and take off and the price is just right.

Excellent one piece summer solution
I bought this because in the summer I find myself skimping on bottom protection. The one time I've gotten off, I was wearing overpants, and that's what took the slide.
When I wear this suit, I have to confess that I feel like a dork, and walking into work I get comments like "Nice astronaut look, dude," but 1) it is very comfortable, 2) the armor fits great, 3) it's very easy in and out, much faster than a two piece and the zippers are great. The knee armor is a little on the inside, but I am fine with that. I am 6'2" with a 48 chest, 38 waist, 34" inseam, and I bought an XL. The waist is a little snug, but I thought 2XL was too big. Guess I just need to lose a few pounds. The hem is correct for me if I close the hook and loop over the boot. If it is open, then sitting length is correct, but the hem drags on the ground when walking.
The pockets are well placed, including an inside chest pocket, but I agree with another poster that passthrough pants pockets would be nice. I also like the articulated back pad. It's much more comfortable than the one in my mesh jacket. Finally the neoprene neck with the closure tab is a very nice touch.
All in all a great piece.

Great Value - Protection, comfort, and great for warm weather.
I bought this as a weekend suit for the summer. Not down with leather in the 85+ degree heat, I bought this suit and am REALLY happy with it. The air flow is perfect for anything that is 70 degree +. Anything below and you should be layered up pretty heavily. The vents really do breathe and it feel like you are wearing a tee-shirt.
Protection is above adequate. The shoulders, elbows, and spine feel well portected. My knee pads sit above my knees in riding position and it's been tough to adjust it. That's my only negative point, but it hasn't frustrated me too much with the suit.
Couple this with some armored shorts for hip and butt protection and you are well protected for long weekend rides.
Great overall suit for summer trips.

I don't like them at all
I was looking for mesh coveralls that had armor. I thought these would be great. I'm 6'3" and 225, this is 3xl by the sizing chart. These are very large on me and they have a lot of extra material in the legs and forearms. It fit like one of those glider suits, lots of loose material to flop around in the wind. The knee protectors are centered when standing but when sitting on the bike the ill fit pulls them in and they point at the gas tank exposing the knee to everything. I tried to ride with them "once" and they look really bad, I felt like I was sliding around in them. I plan to take them and have them taylored, maybe then I can use them. I ordered the silver pewter, looks like a space suit.
If you plan to wear these to work you better have a big trunk they are big a bulky and not easy to fold. The material is quality, but styling and fit are wacked. Disappointed.....
