Gear Up and Stay Dry
June 1, 2010 | By: Patrick Garvin
We’ve all been there — a beautiful day, gorgeous countryside, the wind in your face. Cruising along in absolute admiration of the day and, splat, the first drop hits the face shield of your helmet. This leads to immediate denial — no, it can’t be — but it is, and all of a sudden the downpour begins.
Rain — the dreaded enemy of bikers. This necessary act of God always seems to happen at an inopportune time in the lives of all motorcyclists. And nothing is more miserable than soaking in your seat in the pouring rain.
The trick, of course is to be prepared, and the J&P Cycles Ultimate two-piece rain suit is the perfect way to combat inclement weather. This two-piece rain suit is made of 100 percent waterproof nylon with sealed seams and covered zippers. This motorcycle jacket has additional features include adjustable wrists and sides, a snap-off head cover, vented back panel and zippered front pockets.
It also has an elastic waist and a zippered lower leg with an adjustable Velcro water flap for added protection over shoes or boots. And if you’re doing just fine with your trusty old weather-worn chaps, then you can pick up the jacket only to add to your bad weather gear.
Just be sure to pack these bad boys in your gear and they’ll keep you as comfy as you can be while plowing through the next biblical downpour or just the clearing up shower that your buddy swore was going to “go north of us.”
