Bought this today after posting...

http://www.jpcycles.com/product/151-130?N=...amp;results=100

It's gonna be a little bigger than my Frogg Togg which was a 3XL jacket...but hopefully not TOO big to use. I like the price and quality.


Received my new rain jacket today and I'm very happy with the purchase. The coat runs much smaller than I thought it would for something labled as 4XL and fits very good. It has elastic at the waist which helps with the oversizing. For reference, I wear size 2XL shirts...preferably in tall now. So if any of our other larger members would like a great deal on a rain jacket, I don't think you can beat these discontinued Indian motorcycle rain gear. The only thing I wish it had, that the frogg toggs did, is a hood. I would wear the hood under my helmet in the rain to keep water from running down the back of my neck. The Indian rain jacket has a very high lined collar which is comfortable and will cinch up tightly with velcro, so we'll see how it handles rain getting by the neck....but the rest of the coat is a huge improvement over my frogg togg road toad suit.

I'm gonna stick with my "water-proofed" leather overpants as my lower rain gear for a season or so and see how that works out before I decide to look for rain pants again.

A gal I know rode to Alaska and used a western duster oil slicker for rain protection.

I bought the Frogg Toggs for the wife and I. I really like them because they fold up small. I also like the fact that they breathe--others I wore would make me wetter inside from sweating than the rain. They stay in my bags all the time in case of rain or unexpected cool fronts. It's not a question of if you burn the legs on the exhausts but when------after I did, I went to Wall Mart and bought an Ironing Board Cover ( Silver ) and cut out a patch larger than the burn and had them sewn on. I'm ready to roll again and stay dry and warm !!!!

I vacuum seal mine and keep them in the saddle bags till They're needed, once they're sealed they really don't take up much room.
