Richa Typhoon Rain Overall - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Good product for piece of mind
I bought this all in one waterproof to keep in my tail pack whilst out on trips. I bought the same size as my jacket and although it's a wee bit of an effort to get on, it doesn't flap around when I'm on the bike. Only wore it once so far in mild rain and it worked well. I ride an SV650 so no fairing protection at all and even with lace up boots, I arrived at my destination dry. I take on board other people's comments that the pack size isn't overly small, but it's a nice weight of fabric that feels good and solid, especially zips and seams. I'd be worried that a lighter material would rip in the wind flow or when I was putting it on or taking it off.
Bit difficult to get on with jacket and liners on. Had to take the liner out if my jacket but was perfectly warm enough. Keeps you dry in the wind and rain. Bit difficult to put on at the side of the road with all your kit on. I'm considering cutting the inner bib/flap and putting a velcro strip on it which would give extra room to get my arms in.. not as flexible as I once was...
Ok certainly keeps rain out
It is warm but your body can not breath in this type of kit. I put it over my alpinestars textiles drystar to keep really bad weather out. Means my main kit is dryer and lighter but your body will sweat, so you do feel damp still.
This is an excellent product to keep you dry in the rain. Used it on a recent trip and kept 100% dry. If you're looking to travel light this is probably not the product as it doesn't roll up very compact. The only other downside is when tramping on, it feels like a parachute has been deployed behind, which is a bit off putting and tiring on the arms after a while.
Good but not practical
Good product, well made, keeps water out but there are no pockets outside for keys or phone or whatever. I deliver stuff on a bike and I need practicality. Also, the leg length is a bit short. All in all, it's good stuff but does not fit or suit me.
Richa Typhoon suit
Suit arrived very quickly. Suit fits well although have to take boots off , so not so good if out in the rain. Quality is good. The internal bag seems a little small as the suit is quite bulky and the waist strap is only just big enough. Overall a nice quality suit. As usual great service from Sportbike shop..
Great Quality Suit
Really recommend this suit, keeps you nice and dry and adds another layer to keep you warm too. It's easy to get on and off and makes you visible too. Only bad points are there are no pockets apart from the big one that the suit folds into. Folding the suit into this pocket is impossible, it won't pack down enough to fit!
Excellent service. Excellent product.
Sportsbikeshop went above and beyond to get this to us before a trip to France. Thank you. The product - 200miles in rain (50 of which was torrential) and bone dry. Think that says it all. Packs into a pocket like a cagoule would-folds in on itself with a belt so could be worn as a sort of bum bag. Unpack. Ckeck leg zips are open and step in. Pull up to chest. Arms go in like 1 piece leathers. Zip legs down and velcro tight to boots. Zip up the front and close the storm flap. Double check that storm flap and off you go. The product is a ride best buy for a reason!! Would recommend that you size it as per your leathers. Thanks again to the team
Essential Piece of Kit For All Riders!
If you use your bike for as much as the year as you possibly can like me, then this rain suit is a must! It keeps you warm,dry and comfortable in bad conditions! Would recommend buying in the same size as your jacket) Wish I had bought mine years ago! Incredible service from SBS as per usual.
