    I like the TourMaster 2 piece suit. Frog Toggs are built like crap.

    I have seen an H-D branded rain suit that has full length side zippers in the pant legs for easy entry and exit. Otherwise the suit looks similar in construction to a lined TourMaster Rain suit.

    You got that right. Excellent suit at a fair price and available with lots of higher visibility yellow on the jacket portion.

    Having just pulled it out of storage, I did find one annoying aspect on it and any suit like it that uses the same mesh lining.

    The "hook' material that runs the full length of the jacket's opening sticks like crazy to the mesh liner and is a pain to pull apart when you're in a rush to put it on.

    If it ever falls apart, I'll be looking at getting a suit with a smooth polyester lining.

    How do you size a rain suit?

    I would like to order a rain suit but not sure what size would work. Currently wear a XXL tall (6'4" and 230 lbs). Should I order the same size or maybe 1 or 2 larger? Thanks

    You're going to want to go bigger with the raingear.

    Reason why: Just because it's raining, doesn't mean the temps suddenly shot up. Often, you will want to leave all your warm (and protective) gear on, so the raingear should be a bit over-sized, especially to be able to cinch the neck tight so that water doesn't run in.

    If you need to wear only raingear, the over-sizing won't be that big a deal.

    Good Luck!

    I'm 6'2"/240 and the 3X Frogg Toggs fits great over my gear.

    BMW KlimaComfort has been great. I have ridden in some torrential rain and never a drop. Expensive, but worth it.....and it breaths very well.
