Harley-Davidson riders like to keep it cool and go with rain gear that bears the brand and quality of the bikes they ride. When riding is a big part of your life, you're going to be on your motorcycle, hitting the open road in all kinds of weather. It's necessary to prepare for rainy days at all times. To help make your ride safer and more comfortable, we've chosen the five essential pieces of Harley-Davidson rain gear that you won't want to be without when the weather is uncooperative.
5. Harley-Davidson Waterproof Boots
Harley-Davidson has teamed up with Wolverine to offer the Brosner performance riding boots that give waterproof protection for the nastiest weather. They keep your feet warm and dry without causing overheating or sweating. It's thanks to the breathable full-grain leather upper with waterproofing technology. They constructed these boots with Goodyear patented welt technology for durable bonding of the rubber outsole to the boot for longer life and more dependability. The rubber outsole gives you additional traction and stability. They included a reflective insert to heighten your visibility in cloudy and darker road conditions. These boots also provide ankle protection and support without causing abrasions or slipping on the feet. They're equipped with a high-quality YKK locking inside the zipper. These boots are available in men's sizes 7 to 13.
4. Men's Ratchett Gauntlet Waterproof Gloves
Your Harley-Davidson arsenal of rain gear is not complete without a pair of waterproof gloves. Our top pick to satisfy the need is the Men's Ratchett Gauntlet model. We like the most about these gloves is the warmth and dryness they offer your hands when riding in nasty weather while preserving the needed agility to use your fingers for the controls. They're ideal for cold, wind, and rain with the trademarked 3M Thinsulate insulation added to the back of the hand to provide extra warmth when it's cold outside. The cuff is adjustable with a draft blocking feature. It lets you adjust them for maximum protection and comfort. They're available in black with bold colors also available. They make the thumbs ergonomic with pre-curved fingers at a 30-degree angle with power stretch knuckles that give you full control over the mobility of your hands and fingers. The worst closure is adjustable with elastic in various sizes to fit all hands. They designed these waterproof riding gloves with a reinforced Amara palm with 3M Scotchlite reflective material on the knuckles to enhance your visibility in questionable weather. The gloves are touch screen compatible to give you easy access to controls and gauges. They're attractive with rubber graphics. They made these comfortable and practical riding gloves of genuine goatskin leather with brushed tricot lining. You can find these gloves at any Harley-Davidson retail shops online and at brick-and-mortar locations.
