Motorcycle rain suits are the Rodney Dangerfield’s of the gear bag – they don’t get no respect! Often they're either crammed into the darkest corner of a saddlebag or wadded up in a garage. They’re generally something we begrudgingly buy, but boy what a difference good motorcycle rain gear can make. Riding in the rain already sucks, but if you’re going to have to dig in and push through a storm, being dry makes a world of difference. If you plan on road tripping this summer, more than likely you’re going to get caught out a time or two, so be ready to battle the elements with one of these motorcycle rain suits or rain gear combos.

If you’re like me, by the time I finally pull over, every second counts, so this is a handy feature.

Bilt Tornado Black Waterproof Rain Suit  (Product Number 550-1983)

Z1R Men's Black Rain Suit  (Product Number 360-3682)

A hook-and-loop waterproof storm flap cover will keep water from creeping in at the chest while the pants have ¼-length side zippers and heat-resistant material at the inner knee to protect from sizzling exhaust pipes.

Bilt Women's Tempest 2 Black Waterproof Pants (Product Number 550-1992)
