MotoTech Hurricane Rain Overjacket 2.0 review – The why and how?
It is almost the middle of September, usually monsoons are at its peak. And in a fortnight they will recede to 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.

The absence of zippers means less chance of water seepage in torrential rains. Enter the MotoTech Hurricane Rain Overjacket 2.0. This jacket has a dual flap interlock system so as to keep the rain out. So as long as you suit up correctly the water is kept out.
The unit in question is the XL-XXL-3XL piece. In a rare situation where you want to be the gentleman, there’s a chance the lady might retain it for herself. Be it a exact fit of oversize it sure is a comforter. The lack of pockets increases its waterproofness. Some jackets are prone to water seepage from the stitches, in rare case from the pockets. The manufacturer has strategically placed the logos to double up as safety reflectors for after dark travel in the rainy season. While you will not need the hood, it is a good idea in case you plan to stop over for quick CHAI and bhajiyas.
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
