I really wanted to get the HD set ... don't know the name but it's grey and orange. One area dealer has it at $185.00 and another at $215.00. I realize you get what you pay for but I could not justify that kind of money for a rainsuit.
In the first place, I will not be doing any extended riding in the rain unless it is a dire emergency. I'm pulling over or going under an overpass and going into my saddlebag for a cigar, and chillin' until it passes. I ride for enjoyment and I consider rain to be an increased risk factor, impacting my enjoyment. If it is not looking like the rain is going to pass for a while, I'm headed to a restaurant or getting a room. So with that in mind, I bought a new River Road Tempest rainsuit last weekend for $80.00 Looks great and well designed, but haven't used it yet. It would truly have to be an exceptional circumstance for me to be on my scoot expecting to ride through a significant rain for 2-3 hours or more.
