    I've been looking around for a proper waterproof jacket, i've tried Furygan, Halversons etc in the past and they are good but not waterproof in a prolonged downpour, Rukka seemed to be the market leader but the price they charge is way more than I'm prepared to pay.. 1K plus:dizzy: I've just ordered this Richa jacket from Sportsbikeshop it is very similar construction to Rukka but a hell of a lot cheaper..infact Sportsbikeshop are doing over 35% off this at the moment which brings it down to £395..still expensive but I'm expecting it to see me out!, I don't know how they can do it at this price as every other place is charging between £600 and £700 for the same jacket

    I ordered one in case they have made a mistake.

    Looks like a bargain Dougie as at that price you'd realistically be looking at a gortex Z liner rather than laminate, the big advantage being it will dry out much quicker so is really useful if you're touring as if you get soaked on your way to your accommodation for the night your jacket will be dry for the next day's ride

    Don't know Andy ,it's not as if it's an old style they are clearing out to make way for new ones.. unless they know something nobody else does, if you are in the market for a jacket like that I wouldn't hesitate

    That is cheap Dougie, i bought myself that Atlantic jacket and the trousers a couple of weeks ago. Seems like good stuff, not used it in the wet yet. I paid just over £900 for the pair.

    Gave my new jacket a good test on Wednesday, 100% waterproof I got a little water that came down my neck..Is there such a thing as a waterproof gaitor for wearing with crash helmets?
