Harley-Davidson's Best Motorcycle Rain Gear for 2023

April 19, 2023

What’s the only thing worse than getting caught in a sudden downpour while you’re out for a ride? Getting caught in a sudden downpour without the right waterproof rain gear.

Whether you commute to work on your bike or are a more casual rider, the occasional rainy ride is simply inescapable. While you’re powerless to make weather forecasts more accurate, you can prepare yourself for your next ride with the right motorcycle rain gear. Who knows, with the right stuff, a ride in the rain might even be kind of fun!

Riding in the Rain with the Help of the Right Rain Gear

Once the rain starts to fall, the entire experience of motorcycling changes. Suddenly, riders need to exercise extra caution and focus on riding smoothly while watching out for unexpected slick spots. Even for the experienced rider, it can be downright nerve-wracking in certain rainy conditions.

As you’re navigating potentially treacherous roads, the right motorcycle rain gear can do much more than keep you dry. In fact, it can help take some of the stress and difficulty out of a rainy ride. 

It’s a bit of a double-edged sword, in fact: there’s so much that rain gear can do, but there’s also so much rain gear that you can add to your wardrobe. Consider the gear that’s available to augment your ride, from head to toe:

  • Helmets: When it starts raining, visibility can get rough. The last thing you need is a foggy visor to add to that issue. Be sure you opt for a men’s or women’s motorcycle helmet that’s equipped with an anti-fog visor.
  • Jackets, suits, and pants: Perhaps it goes without saying that you should be waterproofed everywhere, but do you have rain gear that’s also breathable? Opt for motorcycle rain gear—whether that’s a one-piece rain suit or a matching jacket and pants combo—that can not only keep you dry and warm but also offers ventilation to keep you cool during summer showers and storms. Likewise, your rain gear should help others spot you more easily. Consider a Hi-Vis rain suit or a rain suit with 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material.
  • Gloves and boots: As things get slippery, you need waterproof gloves and riding boots with a grip you can trust. Look for rugged, insulated boots featuring rubber outsoles like the maximum performance sole from Vibram®.  Complement these with high-grip waterproof motorcycle gloves that improve your ride with features like strength-saving pre-curved fingers and a goggle wiper.
