Richa Full Fluo Rain Jacket - Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
Keeps out wind and rain.
Needed an appropriate hi-vis (Drivers see your arms when viewed from a side profile making a vest useless) when out riding. Bought this and was not disappointed. Fits perfectly over my gear (I followed the descriptions advice on sizing) and keeps you surprisingly warm and dry. The web pouch is a useful addition and I can keep it under my seat if needed. Well pleased.
2nd jacket I've bought
I already own medium version to fit over leathers, got a large to fit over the textiles as arms little bit short on them, and will use the Richa to cover gloves to keep them dry.... Also keeps the textiles clean of crap from the back wheel doing its usual plastering job in the wet ! Toggles on waist bit of a fiddle to tighten, so dropped a star
Nice bright jacket
Very lightweight jacket, which folds neatly into a supplied mesh pouch. My only criticism is, it would have been much better to have the facility to adjust the jacket around the chest/stomach area to save it flapping around. My other similar jacket has adjustable velcro straps which make it a much better fit. However, its nice and bright with a couple of reflective patches. As always, superb service from the Sport Bike Shop and they get 5*****.
Good cheap windproof hi-viz
3 stars because the collar is not a great fit on a jacket with collar (but great fit with a sports jacket). Also the zip is small so you need your clothes off to operate. Could also be smoother, it was getting caught up on the occasions I used. The good - it is cheap! (so cheap I should of given it 4 stars, but I'm an asshole so sue me!). It provides a little warmth, but most important it shields from the wind and is very visible (which is why your buying it). It folds up small, but not small enough to go under the seat of a sport/naked bike. I am a large, ordered a large and it fits over all of my large jackets with good stretch which stops the flapping around in wind jazz. Cuffs can be velcro'd down well so you should have no issue with gloves. Sportsbike as always a charm to deal with. I wanted to save on the next day postage costs, so I had this sent to the MK shop and picked up from there for free :)
Richa Full Fluo Rain Jacket - Yellow
Purchased this based on Sports Bike Shops recommendation and other bikes reviews. Again SBS on the money and product is excellent and great value. I'm 6ft, 78kg and always wear Medium. At first when it came I tried it on and it seemed very baggy so I was in two minds weather to keep or send back. So I tried on my full rig out ie leather suit and back protector as I always wear and bingo. Fitted perfectly. Not flapping really and very visible. Lashed rain the first ride I wore it on and It worked a treat. Very happy
Simple design that works well
A simple, single layer, lightweight jacket. No pockets, no velcro, nothing to leak except the one central zip which has a small additional flap of material behind it. Bought this for a trip to Ibiza and it worked well. Used it over my summer jacket for wind proofing on the UK leg and the first leg off the ferry in France. Doubles as a fluro jacket you need to carry in France. Didn't rain on my trip but sure it would have worked fine. Medium size fitted well over my medium jacket without much flapping at speed. Pleased with this.
This is my wife's third jacket in her 100 mile daily commute. It doe exactly what it needs to. Protects from wind and rain and provides better protection from SMIDSY drivers. Nothing fancy about it but it doesn't need to be. Excellent service from SBS as always.
Excellent value for money
Sizes well, a large fits over a large sized textile. very light weight, water proof just shake it and most of the water flies off, packs down very small. I always carry it on bike also works as an extra layer when cold. As usual fast ordering and delivery service .
Everything I was looking for - bright and reflective, very waterproof (put to the test on day 1 in a monsoon-style downpour) and a great fit over my leather jacket. Very compact when folded down, and comes with a pouch for keeping it in the topbox. All good.
Fantastic waterproofs, easy to put on without removing helmet or gloves. Very hi viz & comes with handy mesh bag. Order your normal size, Richa have allowed for going over your jacket. I am XL & ordered 2XL to make allowance for my adventure jacket & it was so big it could be used as family tent!
Hi-Viz & waterproof
I bought this jacket following a recommendation after a recent french trip where the weather was inclement, to say the least & my textile jacket failed to keep me dry. I have since used it a number of times in the wet over my jacket & it's kept me perfectly dry & being Hi-Viz is a bonus. Ideal to keep in your topbox for those sudden heavy downpours & dark evenings.
