REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the PACIFIC H20 rain suit, one of the main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds about the time it takes you to get soaked during a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but especially in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100 waterproof, breathable, and very practical all-weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and lower legs ensure great visibility. If you need to stand out in traffic even more, the PACIFIC H2O comes in a high-visibility neon yellow option. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow color only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof Composition 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Visibility reflection at shoulders and legs, reflective logo at chest and back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tabs at upper arm, cuffs and ankles Features PVC-free XL front zipper Elastic at waistline Includes transport bag Stash pocket on left leg EN343 certified

My wife and I both ordered theses, she a large and I an XL based on chest measurements, etc. We thought, well they may be a little long, but we can deal with that. Well, almost two feet too long. When are these manufacturers going to figure out not everybody is 10 feet tall! We returned them today and won't try again. Sizing with S, M, L, etc. doesn't work for most people. Oh, and the sleeves and legs can't be secured tight unless your wrists and ankles are huge even with jacket and boot in place.
No, I do not recommend this product.

These are great pants, but hard to get the right size.

I ordered 36 waist as that's what my jeans are. When they came they were too small. I reordered size 40. When they came they were too big, but I went ahead and had the legs altered to my inseam length. Now I feel like I'm wearing a tent. I should have tried a 38 I guess. Expensive mistake. These pants have been designed to be altered, but come with extremely long legs. I like them, but I'd like them a lot more if I could get the right size.

My wife and I were tired of having to put up with long sleeves on motorcycle jackets. Both our jackets we delightful from the first time we put them on. The sleeves are just right, the jackets are light but well protecting, the multi fabrics are really nice, adjustments are perfect, and spring cool weather is well accepted. We've already removed the liners for some hot days and that was also just right. I love the high viz.

I'm 65 and in good health, but was having neck pain with heavier helmets including modulars. So, considering weight and fit (didn't consider modulars as they are heavier) became important issues. At first the helmet was very difficult to put on and take off, but I kept at it and after a couple of weeks it is now not so difficult and unbelievable comfortable. I can't say which (fit or weight) is more important (maybe the combination), but my neck pain is almost gone completely even on long rides, where I formally would have been miserable. I love the chin strap! I love the pull down sun shade. I find I don't miss the modular, as I analyzed the modular usage and it really wasn't that important. Once it's on, it's on and I feel very safe inside it.
