What should you pay attention to when buying rain gear?
You know it, you are touring on a motorcycle for a day and are suddenly surprised by a rain shower. Of course you are wearing your leather combi or blow-through clothing at this time and all the water flows in without any problems. Special rain suits for the motorcycle have been developed for these situations. Many motorcyclists have a compact rain suit with them for these situations.
Why buy motorcycle rain gear and not normal rain gear
Buying motorcycle rain gear is not comparable to buying normal rain gear that you buy in the store. Keep in mind that your motorcycle rain gear at high speed gets quite a bit due to wind and rain. Motorcycle rain gear is therefore made of extra thick material and made to be worn over a motorcycle suit. If you use the motorcycle rain suit a lot, look at a breathable motorcycle suit so that it does not get too clammy. When trying on, make sure that you put on your motorcycle clothing set under the rain suit.
