Well made, with first class materials. I needed this to commute through the winter and am confident I will be comfortable and well protected. The cut is generous, I am 5'10" 175lbs with a 30" inseam and I have plenty of room for extra layers (I ordered size Large). The liner kept me comfortable in 40F deg at highway speeds with normal street clothes underneath. For extended rides I might need thermals, colder temps (down under freezing) I'll use heated gear underneath.
I rode in a steady rain for an hour and a half and had some seepage at the elbows where the velcro straps are bartacked. I called Olympia and they put me on with the OWNER! Kevin recommended I use a waterproofing gear spray as directed on the FAQ section of the website. I'm satisfied with that solution although I haven't had an opportunity to test the results.

AltRider Suzuki DL650 V-Strom Frame Slider Kit Protect your bike in slides and spills with the AltRider Frame Sliders for the Suzuki V-Strom DL650. Made from abrasion and impact resistant plastic, these sliders integrate seamlessly into the AltRider Crash Bar mount by attaching via billet aluminum offset, designed to effectively transfer the impact load to the crash bars. Because of the direct mount to the bars, the frame avoids damage that can occur in a crash when frame sliders are bolted directly to the frame itself. The sliders utilize plastic with good lubrication and wear properties, so AltRider frame sliders can survive a longer slide than those made with other common materials. Additionally, the ability to resist impact is high, making the slider less likely to snap off or crack in a crash. We also chose to use high strength chromoly steel rod instead of commonly used all-thread or stainless steel. These frame sliders offer extra protection when you need it most. Features Made from abrasion and impact resistant plastic Includes two aluminum spacers Height 2 inches Width 2 inches Depth 6 inches Weight 2 lbs. Only compatible with AltRider Crash Bars

Basically the best you can buy. You get what you pay for and although I thought initially it was a lot I was not disappointed. Very good quality and fit. Works ONLY with the AltRider crashbars.
My only complaint was not with the product - it was not properly packed because when it arrived the end of the slider mounting rod was actually poking out of the box! Revzilla if you read this talk to your people - wrap bubble wrap on the ends of the slider so it doesn't poke a hole in the box during shipping!!
Yes, I recommend this product.
