Rain suit - cheap vs expensive

I have a cheap rain suit. It works - but only if the rain is not too heavy. In warmer weather, wearing it feels like being in a sauna.

I later bought an RS Taichi Drymaster rain suit...

I am also long oval. I replaced my Arai with a Shark RSR2 on close-out from fc-moto.de. Great price for a superb helmet, and cheap shipping too.

I used a Nolan flip-up helmet for 2 years. Hated it. It was uncomfortable, the opening mechanism was fiddly and it was heavy.

Their safety is also somewhat dubious. There are currently only 3...
