Waterproof Winter Jackets/Pants/Suits Buyer’s Guide


Quote:
Winter riding means different things to different people, but we can all agree riding in the winter means chilly temperatures and a high possibility for rain. So, for this week’s winter buyer’s guide, we’re bringing you jackets and pants, all built to keep you dry and warm when the elements conspire against you. We’ve thrown in one-piece over-suits, too, for good measure.

For this guide, we stuck with gear that doesn’t require electricity to keep you warm and specifically sought out waterproof – not water repellent or resistant – items. Keeping to this criteria, we still found a staggering 246 items, for both men and women, ranging in price from a couple hundred bucks a piece to well over four digits. And odds are good we still missed a few as well. Instead of clogging the internet with everything we found, this guide will bring you 10 items (or combination of items) that span the collection.

I help manage another forum where there are no ads or corporate sponsors and we have to pass the hat to pay the bills. These forums don't live on the internet for free you know. So I don't mind the occasional pitch. But I do wonder about the effectiveness of this particular strategy. Again, this reads more like a paid advertiser list than substantive rider to rider recommendations. I personally find the detailed product breakdown videos by webbikeworld and REVZILLA much more helpful. How's the fit? How do the cuffs cinch up? How do the liners connect and come apart? What does the armor look like? You cannot ascertain anything important from a stock photo and a price.

So to the powers that be I say, "I'm available to do in depth product road testing at reasonable rates. Just call me."

When I first joined I tried to donate as well, but was actually turned down . Seems the ad-driven model makes more money than asking for donations.

As long as they keep it motorcycle related, I'm ok with it, as I get that it's what drives the site.
