Soaks in the groin, but it's cheap!
review:in a 30 minute ride in a moderate downpour, the arms, legs, zipper seam, wrists, and ankles were great. Unfortunately the groin area got damp. I don't 100% know how. My only guess is that, rain while riding is like a golden retriever that's happy to see you: it goes straight for the pelvic area. Rain not only seems to pool on the seat, but is being massaged through the suit as your riding. So over time, (although no water dripped through), moisture will soak its way through. Big deal? no...just bring your pants in a separate bag and change into them. Or I even thought about wearing soccer shorts over my pants before leaving.comments:Being a cheap rain suit ([$]), I wasn't expecting too much out of it. Previous discussions note that cheap suits don't keep out rain as well, and the zipper construction often fails within a year. But a good one costs over $200, is thick, and difficult to store. I needed something cheap, thin, and could be stowed on a saddle bag because work offered no storage. I also opted for the 1-piece over the 2-piece because it's easier to stow as a single article of clothing, doesn't need attachment between the pieces before getting on the bike, and if I'm rain riding, why would ever separate the top from the bottom anyways? Seems like you're just giving rain one more way of getting in.Anyways, so far I've been using it as cold-weather protection in the 40 degree night rides home, and it's been awesome. I can step in and out of it in under a minute (without boots on...velcro expansion at the ankles), it's comfortable to ride in, and has a tall enough neck to overlap with my face mask, and long enough at the wrists to tuck under my gloves. It blocks the wind well, and keeps the heat on your body rather than losing it to the environment.I wore a thin messenger bag under the rain suit, and it was bone dry when I arrived at my destination. My arms, legs, wrists, ankles, or back never even collected any moisture after 30 mins of moderate down pour. The crotch was damp, but for $50, I'll work around it.Would I recommend it? it depends on what you need it for. Cheap? can't beat it for a "motorcycle" rain suit (vs. poncho's at [@]). Easy to stow? for a 1-piece, definitely. Warm? For sure! Rain protection: pretty good...if you want it to be better, expect to pay for it.

PROS: Dry wrists, Removable boot straps, Tall collar covers neck, Dry neck, Warm, Dry legs, Dry arms, cheap, Easy to stow as full suit, Dry torso

CONS: Damp groin, Velcro sometimes PITA, Didn't use boot straps, thin zipper

BEST USES: Staying Warm, Light rain

Great, but zipper leaks near belt-line
This is a decent rain suit. It is hard to put on with your boots on, even with the flared leg opening. It is light weight and will fit over an armored jacket, and does not flap in the wind. It does leak near the belt line. The water will run down the front and sit in your lap, then seep in through the zipper. There is an extra flap of material inside the zipper that is designed to keep out this seepage, but depending on how you secure the velcro doesn't work very well with a lot of rain. Still, this is a decent suit and I would consider buying again. Especially if they add a rain garter inside the bottom half of the zipper like in higher end rain suits.

PROS: Good Rain Protection, Small storage

CONS: Leaks, Hard to get on, Little reflectivity

BEST USES: rain, Wet weather

This is the best bang for the buck! I live in Oregon and use it almost daily. I ride all year round, and just love my suit. I wear it even on cold days 35 degrees or so with just a second layer on. It is amazing. A MUST HAVE for your gear.

Not waterproof for long
I wore this suit in the rain for 2 hours and my pants were pretty wet by the time i got to my destination, although my jacket was dry. Id say it was waterproof for about an hour, maybe half till i started feeling water. Its perfect though for around town and to and from work though.

PROS: Lightweight, Good Fit, Reflective

BEST USES: In Light Rain, Casual Wear

Wet Groin Rain Suit
I bought this rain suit in January to use it during the rain season in Mexico City (jun-oct). I use my bike to get to work everyday, its a nine mile ride to get there. I have used this rain suit during this time and after ten minutes in moderate rain I get the groin wet every time.

Overall its a good product but does not fulfill its primary function which is to keep you dry.

PROS: Lightweight

CONS: Won't Keep You Dry

this is a good rain suit the Velcro over the zipper in the front keeps the water out very well. the straps that go around your boot keep the legs down. the only thing that didn't workout well is the fact that you have to buy it smaller then you would any jacket or pants. but I read other people's reviews and just tried on a smaller size it fits great, oh and it's also good for cold weather.

PROS: Lightweight

BEST USES: Safety, Bad Weather

PROS: Breathable, Lightweight

CONS: Not So Waterproof, Poor Fit

How does the sizes run?

Has anyone every tried to re-waterproof this suit? Since it gets me wet in the groin area, and at the moment I am on the road 120 miles from nearest Cycle Gear, am considering trying to get it more waterproof by either spraying or using the launder-in waterproofing liquids. Probably will look at Cabela's for a spray on and hang it from a tree in back yard and spray away. Suggestions? thx.

BEST ANSWER: Obvious design flaw... With a left-hand storm flap over a mediocre zipper leading down the left thigh, it's guaranteed to feed the wind-driven rain right past the storm flap that might as well not be there, and down into your crotch! It should be a waterproof zipper running down the other thigh.
