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

One short ride with the Pacific H2O Rain Suit over a set of First Gear mesh completed. The Large Size does fit a bit tight over my 5'3" (160cm) frame while wearing mesh jacket/pants. Once in the suit no leeks and no bindings restricting movements. It is the yellow version and it does not quite burn out the eyes of the other drivers on the road.

It is High-Vis,. So, be prepared to be mistaken as a fireman or some other emergency worker. For folks where summer has temp's much above 80F expect to be dripping sweat after blowing open all openings. I have several rides in the 77F-42F ranges and it has function well. I have used the liner and it has given me the option to not to layer up on short in town trips or do the base/mid/outer on the long out of town ride. I am finding this jacket both flexible and functional.

I found it useful even with a full face helmet. I use it pull up into the helmet covering my nose and it allowed me to crack the face shield for a little defogging without to much chilling discomfort. I also rode it just down around my neck and it helped keep the chill off my neck. It easily stuffs into a jacket's pocket. The price seems high but the value is good because I really don't like the cold.

Because I ride the weird Can Am Spyder trike, I went with Klim's Fusion Glove more snowmobile than a motorcycle glove. Armor was a less of a consideration because of the reduce risk of a lay down. Now with that said I have one 4 hour trip there back under belt with them and I am pleased. Weather was 52F-42F and part of the ride was in a lite mist to lite rain. The weather was no problem for these gloves and I believe that I have barely enter their operational range. I do recommend you take a short ride to get use to your controls with these heavy glove and I found operating a GPS with them on a bit interesting. I really don't like the cold and I am happy with these gloves.

My hands run to the small side for men and these liners glove fitted well.They seem to have enough stretch to fit a wide scope of hands. I have used them for only one ride but I am pleased. Being able to pull the off the heaver outer glove and still have on the liner to work the gas pumps was nice at stops.

These over pant's are doing their jobs. Made for rain/weather and 27C/80F or less riding weather. Blowing all vents with short pants underneath and you might be able to bump up the temp's but Do No ride through Amarillo Texas between 12noon and 5pm on an sunny August Day with these over a pair of heavy jeans. Have yet to take them though some really foul weather but I can tell that attention to detail on the zipper seals will be needed. I have a pair of HT Air Overpaints and these look to be another will do the job product from FirstGear.

Bought for carrying around as a loaner for passengers. No complains after several riders. The pull down shield is nice for novice riders and the experienced ones. One novice rider commented about freeway noise. So, offering ear plugs to guest on freeway glides is recommenced.

Excellent on a +100F 2day ride with 660mile+ for first leg. twelve hours in the seat from dawn to dusk and not a shield change the whole time. Foregoing fitting sun glasses to my face when wearing a full face Bell Vortex was nice. On the return had to switch to a clear shield when passing through the remnants of a Hurricane because of the rapid changing light conditions. Both shields handled the rain very well.

Mixed feelings, the only ride was a short one in +101F heat for about 20 minutes each way. On the concrete, it was likely +109F, but the boots took the heat. Four hours running around the office without any trouble. The laces are trouble. They used cloth loops to retain the laces. The high friction of the cloth loops works for the lower loops but the top loop's friction makes lacing up the boot a slight more bit of work this also slows get the boot "ON" and "OFF". The laces got caught in the velcro for the cover strap and they will likely get damaged by the velcro over time (I'll carry extra). Sizing will likely be all over the place because they have an internal replaceable foot pads. Normally size 7 are slightly large on me. With the pad, they are a little snug and without a little loose. The pad supplies heel and arch support. So, the replaceable foot pad might be a benefit to those that need different inserts.
If it would rain, I would have commented on the waterproofing but no rain...
Overall, this appears to be a "Average to Good" boot but the price point clearly moves it to "Good to Excellent".

Easy installed on my Bell Vortex. No problems Pairing it with my Garmin Zumo. Using the jog dial while riding is great.
Bit large on the helmet and causes issues sometimes when storing in the Trike. Would be nice to have a PC Appl to handle the options/configuration. Not used the Pairing to other units for intercom.
I grade it "-A". The negative no where near reduce it down from an excellent product.
