Oxford Rainseal All Weather Over Jacket - Fluorescent Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
Wow! Fits perfectly...and I'm a girl
I was concerned the men's gear would be just too big for shortie (5' 2 inch) me..but the size S fits over my full bike gear perfectly and isn't too baggy which I was concerned about. Also it's not super-long either. Happy days! The price is just too good to be true for top quality gear with zips & Velcro in all the right places. Wuhoo!
Be seen and dry in the rain
Bought this item so that I am able to wear electrically heated inner gloves with waterproofs. A 2 piece allows for the wiring. A 1 piece does not. Light, bright and dry. The extended collar is a good idea because there is no need to wear a neck tube. Under wet conditions the helmet visor fogs up more with a neck tube.
Great for a winter top layer
Just some background: 90% of my riding is commuting, A-roads and motorway, 200ish miles per week. I ride through the winter at all times of day/night and in all weathers. This is my experience of the jacket after two weeks use. Wearing this over a Dainese leather jacket. Pros: -Very lightweight, can't feel that I'm wearing it most of the time. - Excellent waterproofing: have ridden through some torrential downpours and remained nice and dry! - Decently windproof: Keeps the draught out at motorway speeds. - Super visible, drivers treat me much better, give more space and seem to actually see me! Cons: - Sticks out on my elbows, which blocks my mirrors, even after adjustment there is still a small obstruction of my mirrors. -No pockets: Fairly common on waterproofs but a faff if you need to get your wallet for a fill up or something! Overall did exactly what I wanted from it at a great price. Service from SBS was exceptional as always!
Bought it in order to replace my old rain jacket but this is way far superior in every aspect. It is bright and highly visible by other drivers, keeps you warm and most important dry! I live in Greece, where rainy days are not that frequent but during winter time there can be a decent amount of rain. Also got it in Large size (I wear Medium normally) so I can wear it on top of my real jacket. It is comfy and you don't feel that it limits your movement at all!
Dry & warm
Fantastic bit of kit - really does keep you nice and dry (brilliant double storm flap on the main zip really does keep the water out). I try not to ride in the pouring rain but did get caught the other day, worked a treat, it's also fantastic at just keeping road grime and spray off my fabric jacket. A surprising benefit (not all that surprising when you think about it of course) is that this has also kept me much warmer in this cold snap - it completely blocks the wind so it works fantastically well at reducing windchill. The flip side is I reckon this will be a sweatbox in the summer, but at that time of year I don't mind if the aforementioned fabric jacket gets wet as it helps cool you down as well.
So far very impressed, kept me dry and visible. I really like the high Velcro collar. Only minus so far is a number of stray threads appearing on the cuffs and other places but that's being picky. Fits great over my jacket and still roomy without becoming a sail.
Never disappointed with Oxford products. Just returned from four days in a very wet and windy Scotland. My new Water Proof boots leaked like a sieve but this jacket kept me perfectly dry from the neck down. Great product at a great price. High vis and oft mistaken for a police bike rider.
This jacket is excellent! Firstly, no need to buy a bigger size, I where a huge 2XL adventure jacket with two inner jackets and a 2XL Rainseal over jacket fits perfectly. I have used it in heavy rain and it is flawless. I also put it on if I am riding at night or if the temperature suddenly drops as it really does keep the cold out. I accidentally rested it on a very hot exhaust for 30 seconds following a long ride home! I thought it would have melted but it was intact! Would recommend to anyone :-D
