My favourite is my Ford Expedition.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Actually my HD hi-vis does a decent job.

It's funny reading the recommendations for Aerostich. I was in the numerous thunderstorms at Sturgis last summer wearing my lightweight Darian. I seemed to be the only one in 400,000 sporting Aerostich. But I would have to classify it as a riding suit not a rainsuit. Way different type of gear. However for cross country riding it is the best. It's what you wear instead of leathers and a rainsuit.

I bought HD's rain 2 piece rain suit and rode 3 days in the rain from texas to virginia. It kept me warm and dry.

Military Goretex parka and overpants. Big zippers and pulls allow quick donning. Huge vents to allow airflow to come in but not the rain and keeps things from getting swampy.

After getting everyone's input I believe Nelson Riggs offers the best value. Thank You All. If you know of any reason I may be wrong let me know.

I'm a total Aerostich fanboi, but wouldn't class their gear as completely waterproof. Actually, I was reading this thread to get ideas for a replacement rainsuit to wear over a Roadcrafter.

I wear a Hi-Viz Tourmaster Defender 2 suit. http://www.tourmaster.com/xcart/prod...ctid=444&cat=8 I like it over the HD Hi-Viz 2pc suit I had for several reasons....
1) the top fits slimmer and doesn't balloon up on me.
2) the pant legs zipper starts just under the knees and opens to the inside large enough for boots. Whereas the HD's had a thigh length zipper with a velcro flap over it that wouldn't stay closed in the wind so I ended up with this huge 'thing' flapping around each leg.
3) it's much easier to put on and off and much more comfortable. I wear it as much for wind protection as I do rain protection.

Frogg Toggs. I use a piece of my chaps that I cut off to snap around my knee to keep my pant leg from melting. I have heard of guys sewing a piece of ironing board material on the inside where it would touch the pipe. I have had mine for 10 years now and have ridden for days in the rain without any leaks. Light weight.
