Question rain gear

Everything I have recently failed (except my "Harley" brand boots.

I have First Gear waterproof gloves... they recently failed.
I own Frog Tog... It leaked.

My gloves and FT suit is about 5 years old. Does this stuff loose it's water tightness over time?

Anyone have any favorites for rain gear?
My preference would be a jacket that is waterproof on the outside
(not one that has a waterproof liner, don't like the feel of vinyl on or near my skin)

Also interested in pants.

Thumbs up Re: rain gear

I like my raingear to go over my riding gear.
Hard to find actual "waterproof" riding gear and the seperate rainsuit is an additional layer for keeping warm (I will wear my raingear just for warmth even in clear weather).
Firstgear Serria jacket & pants are what I just tested yesterday comming out of Nova Scotia.
Worked great, no leaks, easy on and off, nice reflective stripes on both and the hood on the jacket is very functional as no water or air is allowed down the back of your neck.
Jacket is lined so nice to wear just as windbreaker.
Got the yellow and I like it, actually more gold colored than yellow.
Currently in Prembroke, Ontario and weather report for tomorrow is 100% chance of rain so guess I will continue testing.

Re: rain gear

10 years with an Aerostitch Darien.
Waterproof on the outside.
Good stuff.
The jacket is too hot when stuck in traffic at 80 + degrees F; then I'll take something more vented with an optional waterproof liner.
But for the long haul the Darien can't be beat IMO. I never stop to put on rain gear with the Darien, just keep riding.

It has been back to Aerostitch a couple of times for minor repairs, good service, good business.

Re: rain gear

I rode over 7 hours in the rain last Saturday from southern WV to Atlanta, through the mountains, rural roads, interstate etc and only my hands got wet. I have a $40 set of rain gear from Wall mart that I put on over my normal riding gear and a full face helmet. I love my BMW boots and wore them for a solid 7 days last week. My feet stayed dry too. My gloves were not water proof, just regular HD riding gloves, so I didn't expect my hands to stay dry.

Re: rain gear

Living in the Pacific Northwet I ride in the rain. A Lot! I ride year round wearing summer weight mesh gloves and my hands never get cold or wet. I bought a pair of ATV handlebar muffs for less than $30. They work great!

Re: rain gear

I use a gore tex rain suit from motoport that goes over my riding gear and a pair of bmw riding boots. They work great and don't take up to much room in the saddlebags. I need to get a good pair of waterproof gloves that are good in the heat we have down here in La.

Re: rain gear

We've been wearing Frogg Toggs for a number of years. If we don't have them closed up we will get leakage; but for the most part, they work great. As they get older they get more porus, so we switch them out every two to three years for a new set. We have used the First Gear vinyl and and others. They work but don't breathe so if it's warm the wet is on both sides. Cruiserworks books and Aerostitch Triple Digit Rain Covers can't be beat. I also have a set of BMW boots which have not leaked either. Sometimes we wait too long to don the gear hoping it will pass. Hate looking and feeling like the Michelin Man for too long.

Re: rain gear

+1 on the Aerostich Darien. Mine is 11 years old and still water proof.
I have also used Frogg Toggs in light rain and was satisfied. They just added a motorcycle specific set called Hogg Toggs. Supposed to hold up better under severe conditions.

Smile Re: rain gear

I have used a BMW 1 piece rain suit for many dry years in warm weather and a Gerbings
suit for when the weather chills down.
Used many suits and variations over the years, but it seemed that a new suit, after a couple of uses, will always leak in the crotch area. That's when the ride turns sour.
After 5 years with the BMW suit and 10 years with the Gerbings suit, they have kept their waterproof promise so far.
Also 10 years dry with the BMW boots too!

Stay dry!

Re: rain gear

Thumbs up on Frogg Toggs. Inexpensive, compact and lightweight, yet pretty durable in heavy rain at 60+ mph. Wore my first set for 8 years. Just bought my second set. Haven't been too thrilled with what I've seen in waterproof gloves so I go the cheap way by wearing nitrile gloves over my riding gloves.

Take care,
Chris

To answer your question about gear losing its waterproofness, YES it will. There are several products on the market that you can use to revive your current gear. If I were shopping for new gear, I'd look no further than www.aerostich.com

They make some of the finest motorcycle specific apparel in the world and they sell all sorts of accessories to make your riding more enjoyable. I have a pair of Darien pants and a 2 piece jacket, a pair of gauntlet gloves, overgloves (waterproof), and various other Aerostich products. I'm very happy with all of it.

Re: rain gear

I LOVE my BMW Comfort Suit. Lots of rain riding in the PNW, it has never leaked a drop and I like the fact you don't have to stop and zip in a lining to make it waterproof.

Re: rain gear

I use a Aerostich Roadcrafter one piece suit and have never been let down in the rain. I don't carry or use any other rain gear. BMW boots work well also in the wet. The one piece can get HOT, but I drink lots of water and use body power before the ride in the right places and have not had a problem.

Re: rain gear

I have a Harley-Davidson rain gear set (Jacket and Pants) that are Gortex and they work greay when it is warm. For the colder weather I have a First Gear Kilamanjaro jacket and Reima insulated pants (both are Sympatex). I always wear my Alpinestar Touring Boots (Gortex).

I have riden countless hours in the rain with no leaks. Have yet to find any gloves that would stay dry.

This is one piece of gear that is worth the cost, so don't go cheap.

Good luck.

Re: rain gear

I've got an Olympia Motosports AST jacket and Ranger pants that work great. I've rode in all day rains many times with them and stayed dry. Too hot to wear long if over 70 degrees. If over 70 degrees I break out the Frog Toggs.

Re: rain gear

I ride with a BMW suit and use a Harley Blaze Orange 2 piece rain suit over that.
The Blaze Orange Harley suits were the only ones that showed up in Canada and Alaska.
All others blended in to the grey conditions that I was in for 2 weeks.

Re: rain gear

Don't get a lot of rain where I live, but carry some anyway. We (wife and I) got some gortex pants from Cabella's, and a couple of light rain jackets that roll up into a small pouch from sportsman's warehouse. Takes up little room, and works great. The nice thing about the LT is that it's so wind protective. We noticed that on our last trip in the rain, our suits weren't being blown around, meaning that a lighter weight suit won't be torn to crap like it might be on a less protective bike.

Re: rain gear

Paul, I'm not Dan but I picked up a set of rain gear at Wally World a couple years ago to wear while crabbing on the Oregon Coast. Mine are Coleman brand. Cheap and work great on my 14' Valco open yacht and on the bike if my Olympia mesh gear with zip in liners is not enough.

Re: rain gear / Which Frog Toogs?

The Frogtoggs.com site has 6 different rain suits for men/motorcycles on their website.

they range in price form $69 to $159.

Was wondering which ones were recommended or are they all the same?

Thanks

Re: rain gear

BMW Streetguard 3 is all you need. A genuine 4 season suit that does everything claimed. Totally waterproof. Great armor. Cool enough w/o liners up to 80F. Liners (mine only went in last week) brings it sub-zero.

Re: rain gear

Let's see. A&S only gets $1618 for the jacket and pants. For that kind of money ill just suffer along with my crappy Olympia gear and carry a fleece for sub freezing temps and Coleman rainsuit for the really really nasty rain. .

The good news is that I'm sure my local dealer would give me the same discount on this stuff that they gave me on my Olympia gear at the exact same time I bought my bike. Absolutely freakin' nuthin. Zero, zip, nada, 0% not even a single dollar off 2 complete sets.

BTW. I haven't been back to the dealer since.

Been reading this thread and surprised by the different answers. My "rain wear" solution is pretty simple and so far quite effective. I'd like to add that I just realized that I might have a solution for my wet hands and I rode with it on the above described trip! I noted above that only my hands got wet because my gloves were not water proof.

Inside the tool bag that I carry on the bike, I keep several pairs of disposable rubber gloves and wonder if I could have put them over my leather riding gloves? Next time I might give them a try. Cheep and readily available. Not sure how long they would hold up though.

I think your problem would be your hands would get wet...from the inside. The would be sweating profusely from the rubber's lack of breathability.

Re: rain gear

I only use my waterproof gloves if it's below 70. Above 70 I use my regular summer gloves & turn the grip warmers on. I go to the rain gear dept. at Bass-Pro Shops for my gear.
