Hurricane Rain Overtrousers Review – The why and how?
It is the last week of September, usually monsoons are at its peak. And We can already feel the October heat. This year it is a new normal. Nevertheless, the late monsoon is catching up so are the chances to achoo! Rewind to about a year ago is where the hunt for a new raincoat began. After scanning all options, I zeroed in on a few top brands in raincoats and Mototech. The MotoTech Hurricane Rain Overjacket caught my attention. For this I have to make a special mention of Saddle Store. For it is here where I saw it first. The slim fit “bobber” poncho raincoat hybrid design certainly is eye catching. In a place like Pune, where the clouds and sun plays hide and seek, a Textile mesh riding jacket is the best option. Unless travelling to a colder region or in case of returning after sunset where a dip in temperature is expected you do not need a non-mesh riding jacket. Hurricane Rain Overtrousers was not there i guess.
But then again what about trousers? Conclude a ride with rain-soaked denims in the absence of a rain pant. The alternative being picking up a rain pant from the market. The risk being it tear apart or worse still contract seepage issues. Certainly purchasing good quality standard rain wear is an option. So then why not the Hurricane Rain Overtrousers to go with the MotoTech Hurricane Rain Overjacket I thought.

In the event of a sudden downpour all you want is to immediately suit up in your rain wear. The MotoTech Hurricane Rain Overtrousers allows for this. Enter the MotoTech Hurricane Rain Overtrousers. This pant has dual side pockets for easy access and temporary storage. As responsible motorcyclists we do understand that we would refrain from keeping valuables safe and from accident induced self injury. The unit in question is the 3XL piece.
Form over functionality?
Why pay so much for a pant?? No not because I am selling you the influenza deal. The lack of pockets has had me and probably you running around the zippers of jacket for loose change during your tea breaks and lunches. Absence of outer pockets can easily add about 10 minutes of gear up time in order to process a payment. Certainly most locations have Digital wallets. What if they didn’t have it or you do not believe in it. With the hurricane over trousers this changes. Also, Mototech has strategically placed the logos to double up as safety reflectors for after dark travel in the rainy season. Sealing the deal are the velcro fasteners that volunteer to keep the excess rain/puddle water out of your feet.
The Hurricane is a snug fit over the average riding jacket.
It keeps the extremities out and keeps your focus where it needs to be – on the highway
