For those bikers/motorcyclists that truly ride hard, it becomes quickly apparent that quality motorcycle riding rain gear is a must. For those of you that only ride your motorcycle on sunny days to town & after checking the weather report, well then never mind.
I have many stories of new bikers, including myself many years ago, that head out on trips unprepared. I can tell you that it only takes one time of being caught unprepared in a cold rainstorm riding your motorcycle before you start researching quality motorcycle riding rain gear! Don't stand for cheap non-motorcycle rated rain gear. Trust me, I tried the regular old rain gear in the past and it failed miserably in many aspects.

I thoroughly tested the Olympia Horizon motorcycle rain jacket and pants. Yup, we purposely went out in the pouring rain & cold on a 3 hour ride on my Harley Davidson Street Glide Special to test this gear. And I have used it many times since then while riding in the rain.
This Olympia Horizon rain gear performed extremely well & I am very satisfied with it. It is a permanent item in my saddlebags. It is super compact and both the jacket and pants have a self stuffing pouch. If I get caught in the rain I can quickly pull over, deploy the gear from their stuff sacks, and have it on very quickly.
I chose the black/pewter color. However, it also comes in black/neon orange and black/neon yellow. All models have 3M Scotchlite reflective material on them for high visibility. There are four sizes to choose from.
This gear is easily adjustable and easy to get on over other riding gear, even your boots. It has velcro, nylon, and cinch straps all over to get it on quickly over your other riding gear & sealed up before taking off down the road.
There is an additional stretch knit hood to put on under your helmet, thus sealing your neck and collar area from the elements even more. Or it can be kept in a collar hood pocket. There is also a stretch knit cover attached to the hood to put across your face/neck area.
When you're done with the Olympia Horizon rain gear just easily loosen all the straps and velcro. Once taken off you can have both the Olympia Horizon rain jacket and pants stuffed back in their sacks and stowed in your saddlebags in about a minute or so. It is peace of mind to know that I am always prepared wherever I go & don't have to take up a large portion of my saddlebags.
I really have nothing bad to say about the Olympia Horizon motorcycle rain jacket and pants. The gear has performed well over time & is a great value for the price . I stay perfectly dry no matter how hard it is raining or how far I ride my Harley.
By investing about $170 you'll be guaranteed to stay dry when riding your motorcycle and have rain gear that will be comfortable to ride in without binding you up like traditional rain gear. And you will have this rain gear for years to come as it is made of durable rip stop nylon & has a quality YKK zipper.

Nice job on the review Ryan.

Really appreciate that John. A ton of work goes into these things as you know and it drives me to know that bikers out there appreciate the testing and reviews. A bunch of snow here :-(. Trying to get caught up on some of these reviews.

I love your channel, especially the long bike trips. Keep it up. I have been using the Olympia rain gear and been having a problem keeping water out of the crotch area. Very frustrating. I presume this has not been a problem for you? Let me know any thoughts.
