Purchased one of these when my cheap Vinyl rainsuit gave out. I just got back from a 1700 mile trip and was in Montana when a massive Thunderstorm with heavy rain, lightning, thunder, and heavy wind approached. I stopped, pulled out my new Elite 2 One piece rain suit, removed the new tags, and proceeded to put it on. I started to zip it up and with only light force, the metal zipper head came off in my hand! First time I used it and needed it , it failed! I stuffed the suit back in the trunk since I couldn't zip it and proceeded to get thoroughly soaked and cold. Failed when I really needed it! The fabric looks good, but it is pretty worthless now without a zipper. Pretty pissed off that it failed.
This jacket is so much better than anything available locally. It is definitely more expensive, but the jackets I could find locally are all men's sizes, 1 pocket if you're lucky, no reflective patches/piping, designed for men. The fit is great, love all waterproof pockets and zips. I ordered the yellow jacket and my only complaint is that it marks very easily. Main thing is it kept me dry when I needed it. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to everyone.
These are great pants. I love that they have zipped pockets, and the zip quality is great, especially at the bottom of the leg. I have had other rain pants and the zip was constantly getting caught and stuck. No problem with waterproofing which is the main aim. As my measurements were between small and medium, I chose medium. I really could have had the small as these are quite large. They have a tendency to fall down whilst I'm walking, but I'd much rather have the extra length so the bottom of my jeans are not getting wet. Plus these will zip into my Sentinel jacket.
