I purchased this suit to wear when traveling to work in the mornings when the weather is down to 33 degrees or colder. I ride about 7 miles on my Harley Sportster (no windshield) and I usually travel around 55 or 60 miles per hour. That lowers the cold down to about -4 degrees. The suit is everthing that I expected. Its warm and easy to put on and take off over my other clothes. The zippers in front and in the legs are quality zippers and the inner cuffs in the sleves keeps the wind out. This suit is definately a bargin at the price offered.
2 thingsa) It's too big - order a size smaller. I am 5'10"/175lbs, and medium is a bit bigger than I'd like it to be. Also in girth I think they designed this for bears.b) The material is nylon outside .. a bit cheapy .. but then what do you expect for this price.But it's warm, I just wish I didn't look like a human tadpole wearing it. It's just too big!S
I read reviews of sizing and for the most part, agree with the "sized one size larger than you normally buy. Let me clarify: I'm 5-11 and 165 lbs and purchased the small. The length of the suit is about right and will let me wear a fleece for layering underneath it. I would say that the inner cuff on the sleaves is about 2-3 inches short, but the outter layer is about in the right place for a decent pair of gloves. Standing around and playing in the snow doesn't create any tightness in the suit, but a medium might be better for more sitting and overhead reaches where the suit is really extended. Good buy for the $. I think I'll try the M if this one breaks down with heavier use.
to anybody that reads this. I would highly recommend bying from Overstock.com. I burchased a snow suit from them and recieved it within two days, weeks ahead of schedule. I bought the suit to stay warm while riding my motorcycle. I have absolutely no complaints with this product and not only would I recommend it I already have. If you are wondering about the quality I can only say that my wife is a seamstress and she told me it was well made. I stay warm while riding to work in twenty degree weather.. I can not say enough about it it is beyond great. By now and you wont be sorry.
I ride here in Northern Nevada where it can get cold..I wanted a suit that could handle some fast and cold weather motorcycle riding..this was it! Easy to get in and out of...plenty of leg length. Finally someone got it to make the legs longer. No high waters when straddled up on the bike. Only thing I might think of that would inhance this suit would be an option for elastic sleeves and legs now that would be nice! Mossi..good job!
I bought this for my boyfriend to take on his fourwheeling trip. he wore it one day and the seam on the leg spilt and the suit ripped all the way to the waist. Complete junk!!!
- How accurate was the sizing? accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. awful. riped up the whole leg seam
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
I ordered this for my 6'5" son and the sleeves go past his knuckles. Only complaints are the sleeves don't have velcro closures to keep the snow out. Also it is not a heavyweight suit. Unlike some other suits we have you need warm clothes underneath this for very cold weather.
I write this review after two of the worst Michigan winters ever! The snowsuit was a blessing. The winter of 2013 was one of the worst winters ever recorded which is why I bought this for my husband. He was reluctant at first to wear it but the cold weather made him. After trying it out, he wouldn't shovel/blow the snow without it! Although the legs were really long, he just rolled them up with his boots on, problem solved. If there was a problem at all it, was he got too hot with it on and couldn't really wear anything heavy under it...he loves it and will have it forever! Another good buy from O.Co.
I have been looking for a one piece snowsuit for my husband. I was hesitant to get this because others said to size down. The price went down so I decided to buy it and size down like the others mentioned. It fit perfect glad I sized down. The reason I gave this a four star was that the zipper gets caught on the fabric and gets stuck but he liked it and will try to zip it up slowly. Very happy with this, the price and the quick shipping.
