Richa Typhoon Rain Overall - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Typhoon weather in Scotland
Went to thunder in the Glen weather was constantly pouring down on the trip up there but the richa typhoon rain suit was more than up for it brilliant didn't get wet once did what it says keeps the wet out and keeps you warm best buy for bike yet
Thin but completely waterproof!
Very thin, so the wind can cut through it and chill you quite a lot if your under layers are thin. Very waterproof - both ways, so if it's sunny you will be in a sweat bag, but if its pouring down you will be bone dry. I would very much prefer it if there was a pocket or two for quick access to money/phone etc.you can use the large bag/pocket for storage but its not quick and easy. Overall a perfect item for wet weather, a good pair of tall boots is essential with this. Highly recommend
I had to get the larger XXL at 6'2 14 stone. The XL fitted everywhere but leg length, where it came to the top of my boots while on the bike. It keeps showers off well, but don't expect it to keep out heavy rain for long. Had a 5 hour journey, mostly in rain, and some heavy rain. I was wet at the groin first after about 2-3 hours. As with everything, I've not yet experienced "waterproof" other than scuba diving gear.
Great Suit and Excellent Value
Does what it says on the tin pretty much. Heavyweight suit and very warm / windproof. Only downside is that it is not breathable so on a wet warm day you quickly heat up and sweat depending on what else you have on. I road in heavy rain all day on a trip and the crouch of my textile trousers were damp - not sure if it was a bit of rain getting in or me sweating causing the problem. I went a size up to Large - it was pretty roomy. I think i may have been ok with a true to size medium but ultimately if the suit is too tight it will be a job to get it on at a time when you want a quick stop.
Perfect wet weather suit
Well made and completely waterproof. It is not easy to get it on over bulky gear but the long zips and overall size do help. It is quite bulky to carry round even when it is packed away into the pocket provided, and getting it into this can be a struggle. However, it is a useful bit of kit to carry when the weather is mixed, especially on a long trip.
Rain overall possibly made by ronseal??
I bought the large, I'm 5'9 and the length is really good on me. The stretchy waste is just that thankfully as I'm also 15 stone plus. I could where it without my jacket under easily enough but it does happily, thanks to the elastic, go over my big old fabric jacket. For the money this is an absolute bargain that I would reccomend. Oh yes it does also indeed keep you dry, I write this having just driven 50miles through what felt like a typhoon and I'm dry as a whistle.
The first time I wore this was on my way to a track day. 150 miles in downpour and not a drop got through. At 6'4" the 3XL fits the best over my RST one piece leathers and with the neck to waist zip it's an easy job to get in and out of (even with size 14 boots on) which is an important detail when you get caught out on the road! One of the best details however is how small it packs up! this easily fits in my 5 litre Qbag tail pack 6 with room to spare for wallet, keys, phone and any other essentials. Overall a top buy.
For the price, excellent. Takes a few minutes to get into but its effective and far better than being wet all day at work. I'm 5'11 and a 34 inch waist and L fits me perfectly ( over my normal riding gear). The elastic around the midriff means its not too flappy.. It doesn't look full "boil in the bag". No pockets except for the massive front one you fold it into. Small hassle if like me you dont want to whack your phone and housekeys into the same one, get them packed away before the oversuit goes on.
Great product poor sizing
Bought 2 of these after reading reviews. One for the wife and one for me. The small for the wife was great (wife 5ft 4 and small build. the 2XL for me ( 6ft BSH) could not get it up to my shoulders. I;m well built, but I couldn't get it up to my shoulders with no bike gear so no chance with all gear on. so look at the size chart and may be go 2x bigger if you are on the strong size of the sizing chart. so if you are a 6ft never been to a gym type of guy, then maybe the sizes will be ok for you, but would still suggest next size up. Wife tried the suit and was fantastic in the rain and is warm too..... Happy wife-happy life ;-) Great product if you get the fit right
Fine I think - don't intend to need them, but have them in case. XL goes over my XL frame + leathers, though it's been pointed out that they're a bit snug round the belly, my fault not theirs I guess. I'm 6'2 and all the lengths are good and I don't want a flapfest so I'll stick with them pending some situps. Quality feels fit for purpose, but getting them into their packing pouch/belt isn't quick, and getting in and out requires practice!
Great value .
Suit good fit, I'm 5,8 and ordered small, fits over my leathers with Armour well, just bit of a dance on side of road in our latest English summer, but think that's more to do with me than suit. Mesh bag didn't arrive with suit, but one email to a sportsbikeshop and the amazing Sophie there sorted it, brilliant service !!!
Looks to be well made. Despite other reviews, I found it came up a bit bigger than expected and I could probably have got away with the next size down, although, it only seems to flap at speeds above the national speed limit. the bottom half is lined, which makes it a little more difficult to get on whilst weating boots. All in, a great suit at a really good price and with Sportsbikeshop's excellent service as always.
Well made and good fit
I ordered the same size as my textile jacket and it fits well over the top of both jacket and trousers. The suit seems well made and has zips in the legs so you can get it on whilst wearing your boots. Not tested in the rain yet but by all accounts it keeps the water out. Well worth having for peace of mind if you get caught in a heavy downpour.
