Positives
  • Once you try professional wetgear their is no going back to cheaper brands.
  • This suit really keeps you dry , even if you ride for hours in the rain.The water just doesnt get through
  • It keeps you incredibly warm
  • Drys quickly
  • Inner hood is great as it offers sun protection on the neck and keeps your head warm in winter and absorbs sweat in summer.
  • Adjustable arms & legs ensure a snug fit and the jacket fastens to the pants.
  • Outer hood is good if you wear an open face helmet as it has a peak on it allowing you to see and not get wet.
  • Full mesh lining means it is comfortable and doesn't itch when wet.Also absorbs sweat.
  • Folds up neatly and quickly.Storage bag can be compressed allowing it to easily fit in a tank bag.
  • Red colour allows you to be easily seen during the day and at night. In Japan road lighting at night is very poor particularly in rural areas so it really pays to be seen.
Negatives
  • Draw string pants cord way too long and can easily get caught on things, cutting it would ruin suit
  • Hood attachment system strong but can be annoying when you take your helmet on and off during a ride
  • Seams on inner hood too thick and can give you a headache on a long ride as pressure on your forehead
  • No foot protection
