This is a great product. Unlike other brands, there is no waterproof liner--the shell itself is waterproof.
There is plenty of venting (and the vent openings have a mesh liner to keep the bugs out), which means the suit is good for 4 seasons.
I am 6'2', weigh 245, and the 2xl is a great fit.
The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I have not yet ridden in torrential downpour so I can not speak to the suit's ability to keep the water out under such conditions.
I think it's a great buy.

I got these boots because I wanted better protection. I first tried the Alpinestars S-MX 5 Vented Boot, but they seemed cheap (pleather) and lacked good ankle protection. I then tried the SIDI ST Air Boots. While the Sidi's had great protection, they were painfully too narrow. The Joe Rocket boots fit great, and appear to have great protection...and you can't beat the price! My only complaint is that the toe box lacks some feel when it comes to shifting, and they are still a little stiff so on one of my bikes my toe does not easily slide out from under the shift lever after up-shifting. I home this eases as the boots break in. The great thing is that they are super comfortable (they are not sneakers, but for a boot) and they offer substantial protection. I definitely recommend them, especially to those with wide feet.

Icon Overlord Long Gloves Strong, light, and ready for duty - the Overlord glove is the finest glove Icon has ever offered. We started with a Kangaroo palm - thin for ultimate feedback form your controls yet more abrasion resistant than cowhide. Critical impact areas were treated to reinforcements of Pittard's Keratan - a flexible yet significantly enhanced abrasion resistant goatskin. The backhand is constructed from Icon's Battlehide goatskin - forming a tough yet lightweight barrier against asphalt incursion. A full compliment of injection molded armor plating provides additional defensive measures. The Overlord also features a floating knuckle design which allows for maximum articulation while reducing hand fatigue. The overall effect of these materials choices and pattern engineering is instant comfort, protection, and mobility. If you're in the market for a full gauntlet glove slip on an Overlord and judge for yourself. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin backhand Kangaroo palm Pittards Keratan abrasion zones Injected thermoplastic knuckle and wrist protection Injection molded wrist plate Precurved fingers Aramid stitching

I got these gloves because I wanted more protection. I have a hard time finding gloves that fit due to big hands. These gloves in 3xl fit great. As expected given their level of protection the air flow is not as good as mesh summer gloves, but it is still pretty darn good. On really hot days--above 90 or so--I wear my mesh gloves. While I think the protection is great, I rated durability a 4 out of 5 because I have only had them 6 weeks or so...only time will tell how they hold up, but so far so good. I like them so much I am thinking about getting another pair for use when these eventually wear out.

This is an excellent jacket, comfortable and stylish as well as protective in case of a fall down. I am 6'2" and weigh 245, and originally ordered a 3xl, which was too big. The 2xl fits great. The leather is very nice, but the 3xl that I returned was noticeably softer...I guess this varies a bit from jacket to jacket. I rated bang for the buck a 4, because there is no getting around the steep price tag. If you like the style, it is worth it as the quality is top notch. Air flow is good, but I wear a mesh jacket on days higher than 80 or so. I am happy with the purchase...and the size 40 roughshod pants are a great match.
