Rain showers shouldn’t stop us from getting in a great motorcycle ride! But being prepared means having riding gear that will keep you dry, comfortable, and safe, no matter what kind of bike you are riding. Harley-Davidson’s Hi-Vis rain jacket and pants do just that, and pack down small enough to stow in a saddlebag so you’re ready when the storm clouds roll in.

Can you see me now? The attention-getting Harley-Davidson’s women’s Hi-Vis rain suit retails for $159 and is available in sizes XS – 2XL.

The bright orange color and huge reflective Harley bar and shield patches just can’t be missed!

In two decades of riding I’ve had plenty of unfortunate opportunities to ride in the rain, getting completely soaked in the process. Trying different rain gear options, I had settled on a Tour Master rain suit that keeps me dry as a bone but when packed away the bulky jacket and pants take up most of my Harley-Davidson Street Glide’s saddlebags. Searching for a better option, I am happy to report that the Harley-Davidson Women’s Hi-Vis rain suit is much more packable and does the same great job of keeping me dry in wet weather.

The Hi-Vis jacket's attached hood is handy for wearing the rain jacket when off the bike. (No, this isn't my Street Glide. My bike was in the shop so editor Tricia decided to use her BMW S 1000 XR as the backdrop in these photos.)

Harley-Davidson gear has always been synonymous with quality; its Hi-Vis waterproof rain suit is no exception. Ordering an XL to wear over my size Large armored riding jacket and size 12 pants, the suit works well as an outer layer of wet weather protection.

Even wearing this suit while walking around town offers safety and comfort. The orange color and tons of reflective areas on the Hi-Vis rain jacket help you be seen on dark and gloomy days.

One major factor in selecting rain gear for any ride has always been about where to put it. The great thing about the Hi-Vis rain suit is its compact size. It comes with its own carry bag to keep it clean and easily stored in saddlebags, a backpack, or tailbag.

The jacket and pants stuff into an included 11 x 5 x 5-inch compressible storage bag. Once in my motorcycle’s saddlebag, I still have plenty of room for my jacket, purse, and other belongings.

The jacket features a comfortable mesh lining with a Velcro storm flap that covers the zipper. There are two exterior hand pockets, perfect for stowing small items such as a set of keys.

The jacket’s main closure system features a double zipper, allowing the wearer to unzip the jacket from the top and the bottom for comfort while riding.

All the zipper pulls are easy to find and use even with gloved hands.

The cuffs of the sleeves are elasticized and have a Velcro tightening strap.

The pants feature an elastic waist and built-in heat shields on the inside of each calf for protection against melting the pants on hot motorcycle parts.

The high waisted pants kept my midriff dry where other, lower cut pants have failed to.

The Hi-Vis pants can be pulled on over boots; there are no leg zippers, which can let water in, but extra wide pant leg openings with Velcro storm flaps from the knee down maintains weatherproofing.

The pant legs feature elastic stirrups which keep them from blowing up while you're riding.

The front, arms, and back of the Harley-Davidson Hi-Vis jacket have reflective piping along with a large Harley bar-and-shield logo for added visibility in low light conditions. The pants are mostly black but do include a long strip of orange and reflective piping.
