Rain suits ...

Rev'it Cyclone H2O / Acid H2O

Olympia Horizon....

I looked but can't find any reviews here on these suits.

Do you have them, like them/ don't like them, would you buy again ???

Thanks,

I have the revit cyclone jacket.

Pros:
Waterproof for me so far
Hi viz
Fits over jacket without being excessively baggy
Packs small

Cons:
Like all of revit's jackets the sleeves are a little short
Not particularly breathable

Compared to the material frogg togs are made of the cyclone is thinner and less stiff, but less breathable.

I had the acid pants and sold them after my first use. I had to remove my boots to put them on and that's not very good when the ground is wet. I also still have the nitric h2o jacket and it fits perfectly over my rallye 3 jacket. I wore it three days straight and never got wet underneath or got too overheated. I also liked the hiviz option for better visibility in the rain.

Thanks guys, good info !

Pat Ham, what length sleeves dress shirts do you buy ?

Hikertrash, what boots do you wear ? Street or off-road ? Were the pants on the short side ?

I realize the Nitric is the better jacket, but I like the hi-viz Cyclone....

Cheers,

At the time I had the pants, I was just wearing work boots. I don't remember the pants being too short when sitting.

Thanks :) I was hoping you'd say you were wearing full MX boots

BTW, these must not be that popular...only two opinions

Cheers,

Cheers,
If you plan to use MX boots, you might consider looking for pants with a full leg zipper. Last thing you want is to have to remove your boots on the side of the road as the rain starts coming down. Surprisingly, most rain pants only unzip to the knee, I found this was not good enough for my TCX discovery (much smaller then MX boot) to pass through without a struggle. I wound up going with Icon PDX Rain Bibs. Pricey but full leg zippers and built in suspenders make for a pair of rain pants that are a snap to get on and off.

I use the Oxtar Infinity and plan to buy the Crossfire TA... The Infinity work great with my First Gear pants. but they are ~10 year old and leak. They are easy to put on however, even with the zippers only up to the knees.
