Tour Master Centurion 1-Piece Suit
Great for winter riding
I am not a big guy so the fit was a little long for me. I took the medium, and at 5'7" found it to be a little long so it bags up around my boots. But in 27 weather it kept me nice and toasty.

Great gear - ATGATT has never been so easy
This suit makes ATGATT very easy.
Well constructed, heavy duty and high quality materials.
Plenty of pockets for stuff - gloves, phone, keys etc.
I have found the liner to be too warm so I have taken mine out. Still very warm without it. I would only use the liner on the coldest of days.

Wish this wasn't a closeout item.
The reviews already made were accurate. Ordering one size bigger is right. Also you don't need heated gear with this suit. As always I feel very comfortable buying from Revzilla. They are a leader in customer service. If I could change one item on this suit is to offer more colors.

Couple years later, I still love mine.
The features of this suit are amazing. I've been using mine as a daily commuter, as a business professional (riding a Harley), with pleasure. Granted DC/Virginia hot weather prompted purchasing mesh riding gear (tourmaster). Good airflow except on the legs.
The liners are plentiful. The padding I removed from most areas but still felt safe because of the construction. After 1 year, I did have to reapply some water proofing. I ride year round, rain, sleet and some times a little bit of snow. As long as there is traction, I ride to work and need my suit to keep my business suit dry and not wrinkle it. this does that.
I'm strongly considering hording another one because it seems it's on it's way out. I would snag one if you can. It's a worthwhile investment.

Great value for the money
Several of the existing reviews stated that the sizing for this suit ran a little small. After looking over the sizing chart it looked like a Medium should fit, but might be a little short on the inseam and arms. I sent an email to Revzilla giving them my measurements and asking their opinion. The response I got back said a medium should fit, Even with that assurance, I decided to order the Large anyway and I'm glad I did. It fits almost perfectly. I'm 5'10", 42" chest, 34" waist, 34" inseam, 23" sleeve length, 16" neck. The legs and sleeves of this size L suit hit me just right when sitting on the bike, and the waist adjustment straps make it fit fine with plenty of adjustment left if needed. It does seem just a little tight between the crotch and the shoulders, and at least initially it was a bit of a challenge to get it pealed off my shoulders and off my arms.
The quality of the suit is excellent. The only minor issue is that the knee armor in the right leg is positioned slightly inward instead of being directly in front of my knee.and there doesn't seem to be a side-to-side adjustment possible -- only up and down.
I've only ridden once with the suit since receiving it. I took the liner out and rode in 50 degree weather, and was totally comfortable. (NOTE: Because of the temperature during that ride I didn't open the vents so my rating of the "airflow" above reflects a neutral score. Can't comment on what I didn't experience.)
Other reviewers have commented that this suit has pockets and vents galore. Well, it sure does. I counted 12 different possible vent openings, and more pockets than I will ever use. Having said that, a couple of the "pockets" do double duty as vents, (like the "map pocket" on the right chest). I would think you wouldn't want to use them to store things in if you need to open that vent.
The zippers are all very high quality, and the ones on the vents are advertised as being waterproof. There is the one neck to left knee zipper to open the suit for ingress and egress. The outside of both legs also have floor to hip zippers. One review said it was still difficult to put this suit on with riding boots on, but I had no problem getting my size 10 feet into the legs if all the zippers were open.
The zipper on the outside of each leg is double, so you can open it from the top as well as the bottom. That makes it convenient if you need to get into your pants pocket without taking the suit off. However, there is no opening for running the wires to a heated vest (or pants) control unit or power connection.
Haven't ridden in the rain yet, but if possible, I will update this review after I do.

GREAT ITEM !
I am not easily impressed, but I am totally impressed with this item. The quality is outstanding! It is a little heavy, but doesn't bother me. It is a little baggy in the midsection, but the adjustment waist strap is a big help. I took out the liner and I am very comfortable from 45 degrees and Up. Below 45, I have the Gerbins heated liner that I use, and I can easily ride all year long if I needed to. I am a commuter and this keeps me dry in light rain. Some people said they get soaked in downpours with this suit on. They should't be riding when it downpours anyways. Some people are hilarious. Just buy this product and you wont be sorry. I am 5'10, muscular build , 215lb and 40 in waist. The 2XL fits perfect ! Just to let you know, the videos you see on youtube with this item are very misleading. It looks 100% better in person. One person on Youtube wearing this suit looked like a Michelin man, I couldnt stop laughing, and I was very skeptical because I didn't want to look like that. Then I had nothing to lose with Revzilla ,due to their return policy. If you are nice to them, they will even waive the return shipping ($7.00) .

Good value for the money
Size runs a little smaller than you might expect. I am 5'10", 200#, fairly muscular upper body. Got an XL. Length was perfect. Upper body area was comfortable, but I would not be able to wear anything heavy underneath especially if the quilt liner is in.
All one-piece suits seem a little baggy to me, but the Centurion actually looks good when its on and there are elastic/Velcro adjustments to pull in the waist to make it look more trim (if you are one of the folks who need more belly room, there is plenty#.
Have done a couple several-hour rides in mid-40s since getting the suit a few weeks ago. I was entirely comfortable with quilt liner removed and only a long sleeve T and Bohn under-armor-pants underneath. The suit is completely windproof. I opened just a couple of the zip vents #I think there are 10 or 12 around the suit) to test the venting and got a nice airflow. This suit should be good even in fairly hot weather using the entire vent system
Have not hit heavy rain yet, but stayed completely dry in light rain and you can tell from the overall construction that the suit will be good in heavy rain.
Lots of pockets. Quality fabrication and materials. I thought the armor was comfortable and well-placed, although a few other reviewers have reported differently.
One thing to note - it you need to adjust length if could be costly. There are Velcro straps at the bottom of the legs and the Goretex lining goes down to the bottom hem. Not just a simple cut-and-hem job.
Not an inexpensive item, but equipment with real quality never is. I rate it a good buy.

Another Great Tour Master Product!
Great suit, fits well and is plenty warm for what I am using it for. Went out the other morning at approx 40 degrees and was perfectly toasty!
