Has kept me warm in New Hampshire
Took the Hyabusa out last weekend, it was 39 degrees out. I wore a t-shirt and jeans Under the suit as I was going to a restaurant. I was warm as toast. Only my thumbs got a bit cold, need better gloves. Even at 70, ok 90 mph I was warm. Impressive suit.

I haven't used it yet but I really like it.
I am 5-11 215 lbs (42 chest, 42 waist, 34 inseam) and couldn't decide between a XL and a 2XL. I order the 2XL and decided to keep it after trying it on several times and sitting on the bike. Its hard to explain, I may have gotten by with an XL but I'm not swimming in the 2XL. The legs are a little long but when I get on the bike and bend my knees everything lines up and it feels really good. If I take the liner out (which I haven't) the XL would have probably been a better size but I really only plan on using it during cold weather so that's not a concern for me. If you are my size and plan on using it with the liner out than I think the XL may be a better choice. The arms have sizing tabs on them; I don't have big arms but it fits perfectly with the liner in and no adjustment. This suit heavy, well made, and I am glad I got the silver and black color (very stylist).
I believe I got a very good value for the money. It appears to be really well made and has good protective armor (back, elbows, shoulders, hips, and knees). Plenty of pockets, and versatility that you can see in the online videos. Hey, with Revzilla's return policy you can't go wrong. Once I get some riding time I will re-post.

Quality Riding Suit
This suit is very high quality and very well made. Lots of pockets to put stuff and fits good. It has flaps over flaps making it weather resistant but slightly slow to put on and get ready to go due to that. I had to take all the protective pads out of my suit in order for it to fold up and put in the saddle bag. Keep that in mind unless you want to carry it into work or the mall with you. I rode in several heavy rain commutes and walked into work dry as can be. I'm from Seattle so I need it waterproof and it is. If your on the fence for sizing, go to the larger choice. It's heavy with lots of layers but I like it and would recommend.

After riding with this for less than a week, I rode to the office in light rain for about 25 minutes and arrived at the office with very wet pants at the waist and in the crotch. I definitely would not recommend this if you're going to ride in the rain.

A lot of features and protection for the money
Having used this suit in most all conditions I am happy with it.
The sizing/fit is going to greatly depend on your body shape.
Very warm with the liners in. Enough venting to keep you cool with the liners out while moving. When stopped you can open all the zippers and keep from building to much heat.
Quick to get in and out of and so far is very waterproof while riding in a down pour.
I have been very happy with my Tourmaster Transitions-2 jacket for a few years and this is a lot like it but with attached pants.
As stated in other reviews it will not pack down to a small size for travel.
I have not used the helmet rain liner yet so cannot comment on that.
I bought this suit to limit the amount of clothing needed for long distant touring. I feel it will fill this need well.

Great for the price, waterproof
Very comfortable, performs as expected - Ridden in light rain a couple of times, and feel very confident taking it out in more severe weather. Extremely warm but not claustrophobic, even without liner.
Be careful of size - I initially ordered too small and it was extremely cramped for my height (I am about 6'4"). I exchanged for one size up and it was perfect.
- Hard to adjust zippers & vents while in motion.
- Very bulky - don't expect to put it in a duffle or backpack easily
- Back armor is a little uninspiring (just foam)
I bought this as something to wear to work in the winter, so I'm a little disappointed that it's a bit bulky to just toss in a bag when I get there, but for what it is it's a very good product, and the price is great.

excellent buy for the money
I am 5'10" and a bit overweight currently at 200 lbs. Nevertheless, the size large is for me a perfect fit in every dimension. I am normally broad shouldered and narrow waisted with a slightly short torso to leg proportion (normally a jacket size 44-46 and pants 36/31.)Also this suit fits me comfortably both with and without the heavy liner which I'll seldom use, if ever. So, plenty of layering room, yet a properly snug fit for moto apparel at the same time. Haven't tested waterproofness and don't really care since I seldom ride in long duration or heavy rain. Doubt it is any better or worse however than any other suits or two piece gear out there-- none will ever keep you perfectly dry under such conditions, especially with half or un- faired bikes. If money is no object get a one piece roadcrafter and a rain suit to go over it and you'll be set for a long time. This suit is otherwise a compromise, but I think a very good one, because it's features are amazingly complete, fit and finish very good, looks as good as this kind of gear can look and does have CE armor ( also the back protector is a little thin and flimsy looking.) I did much research regarding the fabric and bottom line is that if you are bothered by the questions still raised re durability, get a 'stich or some leathers. I believe that as a one time protection suit, this one will probably hold up about as well as any out there, especially in a comparable price range. And, for the price of a Rev'It Infinity Suit (not apparently truely waterproof either, nor can it be readily repaired like a 'stich can, you can buy four to five of these!) Or, you could buy three of these for the price of a stich.
I will use this suit for long day or multi day rides where getting caught in some rain or low temps. might occur and where I'd like to get out of the moto gear once or twice in a day, max, to walk around or stop and eat, in just my jeans, shorts, etc. I'll keep my leathers for the track and/or aggressive canyon riding. And, I'll use my lighter one or two piece mesh or perf leather gear for other riding situations or temp conditions above 80 degrees, locally.
If I were a daily commuter, year round in a wet/cold seasonal climate, I'd stick with the one pc. stich for easy on/off plus crashworthiness and a good two pc. rain suit for days when rain threatens. Otherwise, this garment seems sufficient, absent more information about its crashworthiness.
Biggest negative- doesn't go on and off nearly as easy as a one pc. stich, in part due to the zipper pattern and too much velcro, but still not bad. Not as stiff and heavy as a new stich either, so more comfortable out of the box.
If rider experience or testing determines this suit isn't sufficiently crashworty, then by all means move up to something more durable and/or buy something more substantial now. If not worried about that, get this and be happy.
As a three, or all-season suit this one is about as good as it gets right now. For a comparable alternative, with similar but slightly different features (e.g. rear back pouch) look at the Teizs product online and see ADV Rider site for reviews.
