The Olympia suits are getting some rave reviews among alot of riders. Their company is based here in Hendersonville, NC. I have talked to their rep numerous times, as he is a local, and frequents the shop while i'm there and some of the local bike spots. Great guy, and he let me try on his suit. Very easy to get in and out of, and it seems like it breathes well.

From reviews, it breathes better than the Stich suits, and is easier to get in/out of. Cheaper by about $300+ bones doesn't hurt either.

My buddy picked one up and he loves it. It is considerably lighter than the 'Stich, better waterproofing (the 'Stich will leak in the crotch area after it gets saturated), and is comfortable and well designed. The Roadcrafter hasn't seen significant redesign in a long time, but it beats the Phantom in three areas still:
1) Time tested durability
2) It IS easier to get in and out a Stich than a Phantom. We raced. I won. Easily.
3) I have yet to see any crash reports with the Phantom. The 'Stich has been crash tested and it works.
