Default Harley Davidson Men's High Visibility Rain Suit, 98275-08VM

This is a great rainsuit made by HD. I was in some really severe thunderstorms today on the interstate and was wearing this rain suit and stayed as dry as toast. The brilliant orange color seemed to make a hudge difference.&nbsp\\;The other vehicles gave me a little more&nbsp\\;space as they passed me. The orange seemed to make them more cautious of the fact I was there. It was raining sidewides for about fifteen miles, and it got very dark, lots of lightning. I was in it these storms for about 65 miles, no fun, the wind gust from the side was unreal.

I picked up this same Harley Hi Visibility Rain Suit last week while down in Laconia. It also kept me bone dry and was well worth the money.

Yes; it comes with a pouch and easily rolls up to fit back into the pouch for storage. I always carry mine in my side bag.

I've got that suit, and my boot gaiters, and my rain gloves all in the stuff sack, and I still have room in there. I'd actually like it if the sack was smaller, as everything fits with plenty of room, then expands to the size of the sack.

It's a great suit too. I wish it didn't balloon quite so much, and it can get hot during the summer, but I was in major storms last weekend and stayed completely dry.

I have had my eye on this rainsuit. I have a blue Frog Toggs and the pant legs melt when they brush up on the exhaust. How does the high viz suit hold up to exhaust heat?
