Rainsuit With Attitude

Get ready for fall riding

By Genevieve Schmitt, Editor

We're not quite sure why this colorful rain suit from Harley-Davidson is called Twister (maybe it stands up to a twister), but no matter what it's called, we think it's pretty cool because of its ability to change color from violet to blue in a sort of hologram effect. It's certainly eye-catching and feminine - different from other rain suits.

The lightweight nylon is waterproof and features a zipper closure with hook and loop fastener tabs so rain won't seep into the zipper. MSRP: $120.

The pant features a heat shield on the inner legs that's longer than on previous H-D rainsuits, rear-end anti-slip traction (if you've ever sat on a wet seat without this you slip), and stirrups for holding the pants over your boots. There are suspenders that are removable and there's a pocket near the thigh. This is good place for it as it's often cumbersome to reach a pocket near the waist because the jacket usually covers it. MSRP: $80.

Harley-Davidson makes a half helmet to match the rain suit also called the Twister. It has color-changing flame graphics and a Harley-Davidson Bar and Shield logo. It weighs a light 1 pound 13 ounces and includes a removable liner (for cleaning) and a helmet bag. It meets DOT requirements. MSRP: $150. Visit
