Default Anyone wear a Harley Hi Vis rainsuit in a Medium?

I'm considering ordering a Hi Vis Harley rainsuit in a size medium. The size chart doesn't give the inseam length. I'm 5'7 with a 30 inch inseam and was wondering if the pants would be to long. Is there anyone out there about my size that could tell me if the length would be ok ? Thanks!

Unless you are ordering on line,
go into your dealer & try them on
before you buy.

This is the thing to do. Try on at dealer and sit on one of thier bikes. Then order from who ever.

Also you will want extra room in them for possible additional clothing.

Yeah, in this case baggy is best. Just don't wear the pants down around your crotch. Nobody likes looking at butt cracks.

I have the Hi-Vis rainsuit in Med. And my inseam is 29. No problem at all, especially sitting down on the bike. The bottom of the pants are velcro around the circumference. So with my boots on, I can just let the rest bunch up slightly above my ankle and fold back down. Almost like Army combat pants. Never has a problem with wind either.

Just measured my rain pants, inseam is 30". Crotch is rather loose fit. So for longer inseam, I don't think is an issue either.

Try it out at your dealer, you'll be happy with them, rode through several heavy downpour, stayed completely dry.

I'm 5'-9" with a 30" inseam and I have their size large. It all fits quite well over other riding gear. For myself, I could not go with size medium because the rain jacket would get too small. One other clarification. Even though I wear a size 30" inseam with most pants and jeans, I wear size 32" for riding pants since they will ride up when seated on the bike.

I would have liked to have tried the rainsuit on but my local dealer doesn't stock them. The next dealer is a 100 miles away, normally not a big deal but it's winter time. Sometimes I research a product and then order on line if I think it has a good chance of working.

Order both sizes then. Try them on and return the suit that you don't like. The cost of return shipping is far less than a round trip by cage. I do this all the time if I am buying a jacket or any piece of clothing.
