Rain Gear

Well, after getting soaked on the MO/AR trip and almost freezing to death on the F4t, I think its time to collect the groups knowledge on rain gear.

Things that DON'T Work:
1. Plastic bags on your feet (In the boots). Moving on the pegs rip the bags.
2. Water Proof Boots. These only delay the inevitable, and once they're wet, they never dry.
3. Water Proof Gloves. Unless they're rubber, same as the boots. Hot and sticky for normal riding, or you carry two bulky sets of gloves.
4. Latex under gloves. They don't breath. Hands get wet from perspiration.
5. Frogg Toggs - Road Togg. Coating comes off from sliding on the seat.
6. Rain jacket with a hood. It tends to open like a parachute.
7. Cheap Rain Gear - Walmart special for $50 gets saturated and wicks moisture. Result is a wet ass.


Things that DO Work:
Err.... I haven't used any rain gear that I really like. I'm hoping for suggestions from the wise and knowledgeable.

Here are some of my next tries.
Triumph Chevron Rain Suit - (Gets really good reviews from all groups)

Water proof under gloves - SealSkinz normal and insulated

I have a Nelson Rigg 2 piece rainsuit that serves me well that I bpught from Competition Accessories. I have a pair of totes pullover rubber boots rolled up with them that keep my riding boots and the toosies dry and I have nylon waterproof overmittens for my gloves that treat with Amway dry fab for extra protection. works well with no complaints.
Best recommendation I would say would be to buy motorcycle specific raingear.
Another recommendation that I will send your way, but I can't swear by it because I haven't tried them yet is Frog Toggs. An incresing amount of my riding companions and fellow club members have been recommending Frog Toggs highly.
If you have the right gear you will stay dry.

I have the Tour Master Elite rain jacket and pants - they work great. Very nice construction too. I have the older version of this - now it's the "Elite II"

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...in-Jacket.aspx

For gloves I use the Joe Rocket Ballistic 5 gloves when it's a little cool outside or when it's raining. My friend has the JR Nitrogen gloves - basically the same thing but with leather. He water tested them by submerging his hand in a bucket of water and let it sit for a few mins - and nothing seeped through.

I have like 4 pairs of gloves from mesh vented to thick leather/armor to Gerbing heated. It's tough finding one item that will do everything well. That's why I also have 3 different types of jackets also.

Do yourself a favor and spend the money on a quality item - nothing worse than discovering your gear failing in the middle of a ride - or even a road trip.

Aerostich Triple Digit rain covers for gloves are great: http://www.aerostich.com/catalog/US/...r-p-16447.html. If your gloves are bulky, get one size bigger.

They also make boot covers, which work reasonably well, but a bit fiddly. I've heard HD makes excellent boot rain covers.

As far as rain suits - what they said - Nelson Rigg and Tourmaster. You can also get Aerostich type touring suit.

Speaking of which . I have a new, never used Tour Master 1pc rain suit and slightly used Spidi Admiral touring suit for sale. They simply don't fit me anymore. If you're shorter than 5'9'' and less than 200lbs, they may fit. If interested, please PM me.

I have cheap rain gear from gander mountain. It isn't very breathable, however, when it rains there is usually a chill in the air. I was happy with it because it wasn't breathable. Meaning it kept the wind off me and I was warm

Spoken like someone who was not on the F4T Saturday . You wouldn't say this if you were there. I ride in all kinds of weather. I rather ride in snow flurries than deal with the weather we hit Saturday. I had a Stearns rain suit from Walmart and that kept me dry, I also had some Tourmaster Deluxe boot covers. Both of those worked well and kept me dry. What failed was my supposedly waterproof tourmaster gloves. About 80 miles from the hotel the water began to seep through and it sucked. So the only thing cold and wet on me were my hands. I will try those JR Ballistic gloves and see if they do better in the rain.

I rode the flood four, BUDDY. All I had was a rainsuit. 50 degrees and sopping wet cruising at 70mph ain't fun, and I know it! Just saying, it's going to be tough to stay 100% comfortable and dry, we are motorcyclists, right? Supposed to be tough? Sound like a bunch of fucking poosies around here.

Dry Rider two piece rain suit. I bought it in 1998 maybe. Years later, I ripped the pants putting them on too fast. Jacket is still great. I bought some alpinestars rain pants to replace the ripped pants. They are way easier to put on.

Alpinestars Twist glove purchased 10 years ago. Not made anymore. One key to a good rain glove is a removeable liner.

Sidi Vertigo Tepor boots. Had a pair for 4 years. Used them so much my big toe and ankle bone wore a hole on the inside liner. Bought a 2nd pair 2 winters ago. Leaked this past weekend. Don't understand why when the other ones never did until I wore those holes in 'em. I'm gonna talk to Sidi about it. RickC thinks it is the lack of a flap over the zipper. And may be right because I always used to wear pants that covered the boot. Now I don't because of the leather suit I have.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I'll repost my answer from the F4T thread...

The big ugly yellow 2 piece rainsuit I sported, was a free hand-me-down from an elderly neighbor. It's labelled as "Thunderwear," and I cannot seem to find it on Google. The suit itself worked FABULOUSLY. I was dry and warm inside the suit. It doesn't breathe at all, which worked in my benefit in keeping me warm, but I could see it sucking royally in a warm rainfall situation.

I need to look into a better solution for boots and gloves, which were waterlogged.

I have Mesh Jackets by First Gear and Joe Rocket, both come with rain liners that work wonderfully. One jacket has an insulated, waterproof liner, the other liner is non insulated.

The Jacket with the insulated liner is a size bigger than I really need, but allows me to wear whatever I want under it. That's what I wore on the F4T.

I also have a set of mesh pants w/waterproof liner by Tour Master, that works great. But to deal with the kind of weather we had last weekend I use the Joe Rocket Ballistic pants.

Both pair of boots I have are water proof and have not leaked ever. One by Oxtar the other by Alpinestar.

I also cuff my jeans when riding in that kind of weather, if they stick out the bottom of your rain proof pants they will wick up all kinds of water and soon your socks will be wet.

I have yet to fine a dry set up for my hands that I like, I either don't like the bulk, the extra layers or my hands sweat so much they are wet anyway. But it does sound like other have found stuff that works for them. I've been using deerskin gloves, they seem to stay a bit warmer when wet and I still have good feel when using them.

Except for my hands I was totally dry when I got the the hotel. I was cold and could not see very well but I was dry.

Every set of Frog toggs I have tried have failed (ripped) pretty quickly. They might work if worn under a set of mesh gear.

I have heard that using a pair of dishwashing rubber OVER your riding gloves works great. if you have a suit on then use a rubberband to seal the tops so the water doesn't run down your arm into the glove. u may look retarded wish green or orange gloves on,but you are dry.

I own and use a Triumph Chevron suit. Got size large, and it barely fits shoulders to crotch while leaned over on the bike. It makes you look HUGE. (i'm 6ft. 175lbs)

Fairly complicated to get on and off. 2 full length zippers in the front with full length velcro all over the place.

Once on, it was fairly comfortable, and it kept me dry which is #1. Just takes like 5 min to get on. Dont do the velcro properly and itll leak.

Got it on sale at Janesville Triumph for $80 so no complaints here.

The Spidi H2Out suit worked great, until I failed to properly seal the storm flap on the zipper, and I had some leakage. The FirstGear, waterproof gloves kept my hands dry, but since the outer layer get soaked with water, and it was cold, my hands got cold, and gas stops I would squeeze the water out, and my hands immediately felt warm. My boots are a Ducati brand but are water proof, feet were dry but again cold.

I just bought a TourMaster Sentinel, rain jacket when I was in MO. That thing works great.

I also have Alpinestars Drystar Apex gloves. They work alright. The worst part of them is the liner is attatched at the cuff but not anywhere else. When you take them off the liner tries to pull out and get messed up making it hard to get your hands back into them.

Mine got soaked during the F4T, but that was my fault. I should have had the cuffs inside the jacket sleves. When you elbows are above the wrists, your gloves should be inside the sleves of the rain jacket. If your elbows are below your wrists, your cuffs should be outside the sleves of your rain jacket.

When wearing waterproof boots, the biggest problem people don't think about is water seeping thru the seams of your pants, running down your leg and filling the boot. Try to find was to anticipate some seam weepage and redirect the water away from the insides. Tucking your suit into the boots can make like a funnel, filling the boots quickly.

I personaly like to tuck my jeans into the boots, overpants to the outside of the boot and rainpants over that.

I am looking forward to buying an Aerostich suit in the near future. They are NOT water proof, but they are water resistant, and combined with a rain over suit, that is the best I have heard of. Seal yourself in any tighter and your get wet from sweat rather than rain.
