Richa Typhoon Rain Overall - Fluo Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
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.
Excellent value for money for this suit. Stitching, velcro closure, zippers, everything is made to last. Size is normal. I wear L in jacket, pants etc, so I ordered XL in order to fit over those and its perfect. The only disadvantage I could find is that it is a bit on the heavy side.
Amazing quality at this price
I earlier purchased an iXS Orca rain suit but wanted to change it for a larger size, but also felt it was a bit thin. Opted for the Richa suit and wow was I impresses when it arrived. The quality of the material is amazing for the price, it feels as if its lined inside. In fact if you could fit armour to it you wouldn't require a riding jacket underneath as its really warm and toasty. Only weird thing is the internal bag and shoulder sling which forms a zipped pocket on the front, haven't quite worked out how this works, but managed to pack it into a 300mm x 300mm flat vinyl bag I had spare. Well recommended.
Richa just right for the wife
Bought the suit for my wife. Tried it on over her regular travel suit and it's an excellent fit. Suit fits nicely when you squeeze the air out, no loss if mobility and the closures are easily managed. Once you discover the location of the pocket it's a fiddle to pack away. Would definitely recommend it.
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.
