If our local weathermen have told us anything for certain over the past few years it’s this: No one can ever accurately predict the weather. Mother nature is a fickle woman, and more times than not she likes to pop a squat and unleash hell on us while we’re caught on a bike without any kind of inclement weather gear. That’s why, no matter if it’s just a short overnight or a week-long Sturgis Rally vacation, you want to make sure you have at least some kind of basic, comfortable protection against the vile temptress that is nature.
Today we’re showing off two unisex rainsuits from Xelement, both of which are identical except for the fact that one is awesome and green, and the other is cool and orange. We make the distinction between awesome and cool because we know for a fact that green is better than orange. We actually hosted a MMA fight with these two rainsuits, and while it did get a little out of control (ripping a zipper off is just torture, man!) in the end the judges and all the LeatherUp staff decided that green was definitely the victor. That’s not to say orange is a wuss, though. Orange is still made from the exact save 100% waterproof polyester outer shell as his (superior) green brethren, but that color…that color is just second fiddle when it comes down to drop kicks and sucker punches.
In addition to being 100% waterproof — and, why would we sell a 99% waterproof rainsuit — both jackets feature reflective piping for night and low visibility riding, and it extends along the chest, arms and back to make sure you’re seen even when the weather makes it increasingly difficult to see. These new rainsuits also feature waterproof front zippers, tape sealed with Velcro closures to form waterproof barriers; elastic wrist cuffs for wearing in combination with rain-proof leather riding gloves; an adjustable, elastic waist drawstring; an extremely breathable polyester mesh lining on the interior; and of course both the pants and the jacket can be worn over almost any additional riding gear you’ll already have on with the road gets damp.
We’re extremely proud of this new set of rain gear, and we know you’ll be too once it’s safely tucked inside your bag. Nothing can make the difference between a bearable excursion through the storm and a painful night of hellish descriptions and shuddering cold than a good rainsuit, and that’s why we stand behind this new Xelement rainsuit (as we do all of our inventory) with our award-winning 100% satisfaction guarantee. You don’t like this rainsuit? You think it sucks so bad your own momma would be ashamed to wear it in the rain? Well, just pack it on up and send it back to us and we’ll get your money right back to you. We believe in this jacket and pant suit that much.
