- Motorcyclists; which 1piece waterproof suit should I buy?
I usually only ride for pleasure which tends to be mostly fine weather but this year I fancy doing my first extended tour. It will probably be around Scotland, Wales or N France so the chances are that I will need a waterproof of some sort. So I’m looking for something that is quick to put on but will pack small as space on my bike is limited. Oh, and very waterproof too. Any recommendations please?Posted 1 month agoYoKaiserSubscriber
I’m also mostly a fine weather rider a s was looking for something for north of Scotland touring. I bought the Oxford Rainseal jacket and trousers, good reviews and cheap. Bought a fluro jacket for visibility and black trousers to deal with road spray. Only worn them a few times but have worked well.Posted 1 month ago
I was advised not to go with a one piece, fit needs to be bang on and getting on and off can be a pain.epicycloSubscriber
In Oz I used to buy Dririder one piece. Cheap, and waterproof in monsoonal rain (as in bucket of water over your head every few seconds rain).
Leaks at neck hole, wrist holes only problem, but in real rain I don’t know anything that does seals at those points.
In this climate where we wear more layers, I’d favour a 2 piece suit purely because if it’s easier to get into, you’re more likely to put it on before it is too late. One pieces are a hassle in that regard.Posted 1 month ago
