You can’t control the weather, the best you can do is to dress for it. For most motorcyclist enthusiasts, dealing with rain has to be one of the most annoying things on the road, not only does the road become slippery and dangerous, but there’s always that chance of being drenched wet to the bone.
To beat this, there is special gear that you can wear as a rider, gears like, dust protection bike goggles, anti-fog motorcycle goggles, and rain suits to shield yourself within extreme weather conditions. Some of the notable rain gears include the following.
This comes in a pair set that includes the jacket and pants. They are made of breathable non-woven fabric that is not just waterproof but also highly resistant to wind on top of being super lightweight. The jacket is full length and this means that it covers the hands and leaves some extra layer of cloth to go over the hands completely. The pants on the other hand have adjustable leg openings that allow you to seal them tight just near the ankle area to stop water from splashing in.
The seams are also elastic with strings on the inside that allow the user to adjust the fit as they want. They are all foldable and can be squeezed into a bag when not in use.
