Comment: This suit feels very durable and worthy of doing what it is suppose to do. I haven't have to use it as of yet but the Spring showers are on the way. I ordered this suit a little big because I can ride pretty much all year long and during the colder months, I want to be prepared if I'm out riding and we get a little moisture in the air. Can't beat the price!
The RS 5020 and 5021 rain suits are made of a lightweight yet durable
waterproof nylon material and come in two colors, high viz yellow and hi-viz
orange. In addition to the hi-viz coloration, visibility is maximized by the
reflective piping that is located at nearly every seam on this suit. They are
available in mens sizes XS thru 3X and womens sizes S thru 5X and are designed
with a full cut to fit easily over your other protective motorcycle gear. The
features of the mens and ladies versions are the same. The cut and sizing are
different, though, to accommodate the differences in our body shapes.
The jacket features a lightweight nylon zipper with a metal pull tab that is
protected from the elements by this channeled hook and loop flap system.
Honestly, I would have liked to see waterproof zippers here to guaranty that
absolutely no water can get in, but this is still an amazing rain suite for the
money. The collar is very tall on this model which is nice because it will
protect your neck, the collar of your other gear, or your balaclava from the
elements. The collar also features an adjustable pull cord at the rear and hides
the removable stow-away collar that can be worn under your helmet to keep the
rain from running down the back of your jacket. You should know, though, that
this hood is a little on the thick side as a result of the mesh comfort liner,
so it may affect the fit of your helmet. I keep separate helmets for inclement
weather riding, and wear a size larger in the cold months to accommodate
balaclavas and rain gear hoods. Finally, there are two hand warmer pockets on
the front with waterproof zippers, and the sleeves feature adjustable hook and
loop straps and stretch panels for a comfortable fit.
The rain suit pants themselves, have features of a pair that cost as much as
this whole suit. They are made of the same durable nylon as the jacket with the
addition of heat resistant denim panels on the insides of the legs. The waist
features a full circumference stretch band for comfort and these removable
stretchy suspenders make sure your pants stay put. The closure system on these
pants is really unique. It features full length two way zippers that allow the
pants to be easily put on and taken off, but also allows easy access to the
pockets of the pants you are wearing beneath the suit. On the back of the pants,
you can see the non-slip panels that have been added to the rear end. The
bottoms of the cuffs feature removable stirrups that hold the cuffs of the pant
legs down, keeping water from running into your boot.
