Teknic Jet Stream 2-Piece Rain Suit
Great for the price, but unwieldy.
For the price, this is an excellent starter rainsuit. The jacket can be donned quickly and seals up fairly well. The reflective stripe is a nice touch.
The pants are fairly long, but this is no big deal for a rainsuit. The biggest issue I have is that the PVC material makes it very difficult to put this on over boots with any rubber-soled boot or shoe. I find I have to take my boots off to don or remove the suit. Not a huge deal, but if I got caught in the rain I don't want to have to take my shoes off.
The suit remains fairly bulky as well. I may try to find a little compression sack for it so that it doesn't take up quite as much room in my saddlebags.
Overall, this is a great starter suit, but is better suited to rides when you already know it's raining than it is to carrying around for sudden downpours.

Does the necessary!
If you looking for function, this works. If your looking for form, this is not what your looking for. But it will keep you dry in a time of need.

Rainsuit is OK, oddly sized two piece suit
I have used this rainsuit twice, once by choice and the second was an unexpected downpour.
The suit functions well in keeping you dry however it is oddly sized. Has zero ventilation and I was sweating by the time I got to the office.
I am 6'1" 220 - bought an XL. The pants fit well but are a little long. Not a big deal (better long than short). The coat is way too big even with my regular riding jacket on under it. It is more of a "I know what you did last summer" slasher, weirdo suit. Would be better suited on a boat than a motorcycle. I have since purchased a light weight one piece suit that fits better and has way better ventilation and fit.
It weighs about 12lb and is about the size of a watermelon when rolled up (ok, a little smaller, but not much). Carrying it around in a backpack when the weather is threatening is not a good option.
Not a bad product. Just not the right once for me.

Bad JAcket Design
There are both velcro and zipper closures for the jacket. You can not use both at the same time because the fabric on the overlapping rain flaps prevent it. The jacket is enormously long and the pants are extremely narrow, especially for pants that are deisgned ar overpants. The seams rip fairly easy and the pvc material melts at the slightest touch of hot metal.

This is a good product
For the price, the product more then meets my needs.

Unbeatable for the price
I bought this product as my first set of rain gear. It is definitely waterproof as it is made from a very thick material. I find the bulk of the rain jacket a little excessive but it will also fit directly over the armored riding jacket I normally wear which is very nice. I keep the pants on me at all times they go on and off with the boots on without much of a problem. I haven't been in any rain as of yet but I'm sure they will work. I have worn the pants to block the wind in temps in the high 30's they function ok for this.

Unbeatable bang for the buck factor
At first glance it looks very well constructed. I tested with some light rain and it worked very well. Velcro straps on sleeves should be better in order to seal with your gloves. Overall great bang for the buck in this case.

Cheap but not convenient
I live in Florida and my bike is used for commuting too and from work. I needed something that was going to protect me from lots of water which it does. However if I want something that I can store in my backpack that I can break open on the fly it does not fit that requirement. It is quite heavy as well.
