When It Rains - What Motorcycle Rain Gear Do You Ride With?

Click here to read the MotoSport.com Rain Gear Buying Guide >>> Motorcycle Rain Gear - Recommendations & Comparison Guide

Motorcycle rain gear comes in many types, designs and styles, though there are some commonalities. Most rain gear is designed to be worn over your normal riding apparel, except for gloves made specifically for the rain. All motorcycle rain gear is waterproof and should be easy to put on and take off when needed. Gloves made for severely wet weather often provide heating capabilities which is very important as the evaporative effect of water is a chilling experience.

Deciding on the best motorcycle rain gear comes down to your style of riding (commuting, touring, racing), features, the fit, appearance, and of course how much you want to spend. Choosing good motorcycle rain gear is mostly a personal decision which depends a lot upon your needs.

In this guide we cover the following motorcycle rain gear essentials:

-Motorcycle Rain Jackets

-Motorcycle Rain Pants

-Motorcycle Rain Gloves

-Motorcycle Rain Footwear

-Motorcycle Rain Suits

-Motorcycle Race Suits

Not to take away from the original post, which contains great information, but your alternative sources of supply may include some brick and mortar stores in your hometown you might not ordinarily consider, such as hardware stores, sporting good stores, and maybe even Wal-mart. I use a matched set of rain jacket and pants, purchased separately from an Army-Navy store. Since I don't normally ride in the rain, I put up with poorer quality and fitment when the need arises. Don't rule out rain gear becase you don't want to pay for the best available.
