Richa Typhoon Rain Overall - Fluo Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
Quality tightish fit
Fit is a little on the tight side, but that does stop it flapping and it is not so tight as to be restrictive, just a little more effort required to get on/off. It is good quality and have had absolutely no water getting in. Very good product.
Overall it's a must
If you commuting in the winter this is ideal overall not to cheap not to expensive. My daily journey to central London from home is 90 min. I have tested suit in continuous rain for 90 min and I haven't been wet at all. SBS my first choice. Thanks
Ordered a small but needed a medium, exchanged quickly without fuss, fit is superb over leathers and will add warmth with lining so ideal in colder weather. Not used in rain yet but from other reviews expect to be reliable. Bought in sale aswell so a bargain, Nice!
Very good suit
The suit is great. Buy the same size as your clothes - it's already made larger to fit on top (I missed that part when I ordered my first one and looked 10 stones heavier when I had it on). You have to velcro it well, tuck in the "triangle" part at the bottom of the zip deep inside and fold the part along the zip, otherwise water/myst will get through eventually, but once it's done you're pretty much guaranteed to be dry. I took it for a 3h drive to Wales, rain all along the way and no leaks. On another occassion 4h on the motorway in total pourdown, lorries slushing and kicking up mist. I had a bit damp neck/chest where the water went over or dripped down my helmet and soaked through my neck warmer, but otherwise the suit worked like a charm. It's totally windproof, too, so if you pop it on top in the winter you'll feel a big difference. I waited with the review until I got a set of armour, though - I had a JoeRocket one piece suit before which should have been waterproof, but leaked in heavy rain around the crotch (I've read that even Aerostitch sometimes has that problem) and neck (neck was shorter than in this Richa). A bit too wamr in the summer and cold in the winter, too. Also, after heavy, every-day use I got holes on knees and around armpits (from kneeling and riding with a backpack) so I'd have to replace the whole suit even though the armour and padding are fine. Now with same boots as before, KNOX knee guards, either Fox Titan or KNOX Defender Elite, and with this Richa suit I have a light, safe, easy to put on, totally waterproof, windprood and WARM set. I ride daily, in any weather and I am able to ride in sub 0 degree C temeratures in just a t-shirt and a jumper for around an hour before I feel any chill (no touring shield, so all the wind on my chest). I'd give 4.5 stars only for velcro on cuffs and legs - they don't always hold very well, but it's not a major issue. Definitely worth recommending!
Good one piece suit
Got the suit, ordered by the size guide, it is a little on the large size but I guess it depends on the bulk of the jacket etc that you may be putting it over. Seems very good quality for the price, time will tell, it's a bit of a struggle to get on over my size 12 adventure style boots, but better than anything else I have tried. Only worn once and it didn't flap too badly and was shower proof, then I packed it into it's own pocket and it can be worn around your waist.
Good suit and well finished
Good tight fitting item with good elastic at the waist. Could do with a size chart but Small is about right for someone 5'6 and athletic build. Got an XS and it is a little tight with all the gear below but works well. and doesn't flap around. Good suit and well finished. neck has soft material finish around collar and good ability to fold into the big pocket on the chest. Recommended item.
Black and waterproof
On the whole good, fitted ok, not hard to get on as had to put them on in the dark. They are fully waterproof. Feels like a good quality product but the stitching could have been better finished off, had to reinforce some seams in the lining that were coming apart.
Superb bit of kit
I was a bit sceptical about the quality given this product was the price it was. But when I opened the bag up I cannot justify how they make a superior product for the price. Exudes quality throughout and beggars belief why I have the cold for so long thinking these things would be crap and expensive if I truly wanted a over suit to last and do its job. The sizing was brilliant. The ease to get on and off top notch. Stitching good. Fits over boots well. Has a pocket to quickly gain access to keys wallet etc. I went along to Sportsbikeshop and the patience the staff have is comforting.
I ride an hour or more to work and needed a suit that would allow me to stay dry so I'm not damp all day. This suit does the job. My friend has the same suit and after 6 hours of Motorway in the rain he found a few wet areas on his clothing but that was 6 hours straight in heavy rain. I'd say that proves the suit worthy to buy.
Looks a quality product
Although I haven't used them in torrential rain as yet( that will happen in Scotland later in the year) so far very happy. So happy I bought 2, my lad is going North with me!! They are stylish and fit well over normal gear, no need to size up I found. They are very well put together and made from quality materials so bring on the rain. You know it's going to happen....
