I got an Alpinestar 2 piece from Patrick.
I love it, and it keeps me nice and dry.

It has a collar that comes up around the neck, its lined. There is not something to tighten it up around the neck, but its pretty snug. From my experience with the suit the collar goes up high enough to sheild your neck from getting wet, but i have had some water get through. That was in HEAVY rain and nothing that didnt dry in half an hour. Certainly never had a wet streak down my back or anything. The jacket top is roomy enough to pull over an armored jacket too.

The legs have zipper closures. Ive always just zipped them outside of my boots and they have worked fine. Your feet will get wet, but if you have waterproof footwear it should be fine. The zippers are less than perfect and have snagged a couple times.

My areas of concern for you to ponder: The suit is rugged, but could be torn easily. Not as rugged as some suits, but can be rolled up to the size of a spraypaint can for storage.

Leg zippers can snag sometimes.

Jacket is baggy, so it can be pulled over an armored jacket. Downside it that even with the straps to tighten, it can still be a little baggy. Nothing to secure the top to the bottom. Ive ridden with a backpack on when using the suit, but it seems thatwithout a bag the suit could ruffle up in the wind.

Just FYI.
