I know the breathability to these suits is lacking.
I know that some of them run extra large.
I know that people who ride motorcycles rate them high.
How about it, anyone try one to get around town in the rain?:lol::lol::lol:
The cost for these things is moderate, around 39.95 online.

Don't do it! You will over-heat. They are made for keeping a mostly inactive driver warm and dry.
Maybe if you're naked underneath..... :)

Your range of motion will likely be hindered too. $40 for a motorcycle rain suit? I wouldn't trust those on a scooter, they'd probably fall apart during the first rain or at highway speeds.

Picked one up in a recycle box, red/white/black German,
large size, but sleeves need a gauntlet glove, as they're Rather short.
for stated size..... yours for shipping cost..
For this winter I have a Grunden's made Cycle cape..
