Comment: Great rainsuit, used it at Sturgis during a downpour. Worked great. Great price also. Made really well and comfortable. Shipping was on time. Great company to work with, will use again.
Waterproof Rain Coat with Hood RS5005 Passed the Test
Comment: Orderd to have around for an emergency rain suit. Ended up Taking My Motorcycle Safty test in the Pouring Rain Luck I had Ordered this Gear Prior. Stood up to the Test and I Passed...3 hours in the Rain And I was Dry. Only a little perspiration dampness. Could use some vents But Excellent for the Price.
Nice Rain gear
Comment: I bought this for the emergency rain. It is much heavier nylon than I expected. Excellant rainsuit for the price. I am 6' and 225, 38 waist, and the XXL is a bit large. I could wear an XL. I would say this is fine for the occassional unexpected rain and an excellant value for the price.
Comment: My wife purchased two sets from this site. (She got the pink RS5001) We were really totally pleased when our order arrived today (sooner than we expected) and saw the quality of the gear. I would definitely reccomend this and the sizing runs true to the chart.
Excellent quality/fast shipping
Comment: I orderd this product on Tuesday and was quite surprised to recieve it on Thursday. This product far exceeded my expectations, it is a top quality product at a very reasonable price.
Great Quality/Fast shipping
Comment: I shopped on this site after hearing rave reviews from friends. This raingear is definitely better than I expected for the price. And I ordered it one afternoon and received it the next morning. Will definitely do business again!
Comment: Bought this raingear to use for the unexpected downpour as I really don't leave home in the rain but you never know when you have to return that way, especially after a full day of work with those "1020chance of rain forecasts leaving you soaking wet on the ride home. After having this suit for one week it has proved it's worth immediately with a missed forecast as it kept me dry and warm on the ride home from work. When you consider what the suit costs compared to others this one comes out a real winner. It is lightweight, packable (even in my modestly sized saddlebags), has heat protection on the legs (even some more expensive models don't have this) and a fold-away hood. The only negative thing I have to say about this raingear is that the jacket does not have any pockets. I assumed all jackets would have pockets, but this one doesn't. I am 5'10" tall, about 200lbs. and the size Large fits great for me with no excessive wind flapping while riding. Highly recommended.

Excellent Rainsuit, Better than Frogg Toggs
Comment: Other than being a little big..This suit works excellant! I would HIGHLY recommend!!!
Comment: Suit looks good but have not had to use it yet
Rain suit tested at Sturgis everyday
Comment: I think this suit was definitely worth the money. Wore it at Sturgis where it rained everyday and never had any problems.
LOVE this invincible rainsuit!
Comment: I wear this regularly (I live in the Netherlands now, and let me tell you, it rains here almost every day), and I LOVE it. The suit fits well, even over pants and a jacket, and it doesn't feel stuffy or sticky when I wear it. The price is great, and when I got a suit that was a size too big, they immediately sent me a new one and refunded my previous purchase. Customer Service was great to work with, and I really do feel invincible while wearing this. A note to any women who buy this, though, I'm 5'9", and hipsy, and I needed an XS - just be forewarned!

Great Quality Rain Gear
Comment: I rode in heavy rain and wind for several hours with this gear. I remained totally dry.
Very Good Value!!
Comment: My husband & I are very pleased with the quality & value of our rainsuits. Sized just as other customer reviews said. When they arrived (on schedule), his was missing a Velcro strip on 1 sleeve. They sent us another rainsuit & we didn't have to return the original one.....GREAT customer service!! Thank you!
Comment: It's nice and heavy duty and works great. You can wear it anywhere. Boating, camping, ball games. Whatever. It looks good! I'm 5'10 175lbs and the small fits good.
LOVE this gear!
Comment: Bought 2 suits for a trip from LI to Key West last month, and boy did we use them! Easy to put on, jacket was even nice as a windbreaker when in between weather changes! Most importantly- we stayed almost completely dry in the worst downpour I have ever seen. Only the seats of our jeans got damp from sitting in the puddles created by rain that slowed the interstate to 10 k/hr! Add a waterproof bandana or face guard and you are good to go w/ this gear! 5 stars!
Comment: Great Suit, Lightweight, easy to pack on the bike, Keeps you dry. Great Price too and speedy service!!
Comment: Great suit for the money.Have had to use it 2 time this week. Size is what I hoped would be. Can wear it with or without jacket under. Have not learned how to keep hood up over helmet. Got in 3 days- they don't fool around getting orders out.
Jafrum gear gets Thumbs Up
Comment: i got this gear for seattle weather and it works great i am 6 ft about 180 lbs i got a med and the pants fit good and the coat fits well with a light shirt or coat you cant fit anything heavy under it. Jafrum and this gear get all thumbs up!!!!!

Good product fast service
Comment: I ordered two rain suitesfor my Son and Daughter. I ordered them late Tuesday and received them Thursday afternoon. Very comparable to my Harley Davidson rain suite that I paid over 200 dollars for. Very satisfied great job Jafrum.
Chesnee South Carolina
Comment: I purchased this rain suit for a few rain or shine rides coming up this season (2012). The quality is great and the fit is also great. I went one size bigger than suggested cause I hate things too tight. Hope I never have to use it...
Comment: Great product fast shipping! Was really surprised with the quality of this rain suit, I love it and it's a great buy! I'm 6' 190lbs and I went with the large. Pants fit perfect top was a little loose around the waist so I had a tailor add some elastic in the front and now fits perfect!
Rainsuit - Motorcycle Rider
Comment: Great Rain Gear-made better than I thought it would be for the price.
Motorcycle Rainsuit RS5005
Comment: I flew to Virginia Beach, purchased a motorcycle and drove it home to South Dakota, almost 1500 miles. Just West of Indianapolis I saw a front developing so I stopped and put my suit on, WITHOUT having to take my boots off!. :-) Very pleased with this product as well as the MotoCentric Mototrek boot covers I purchased the previous season!
Waterproof Rain Coat with Hood RS5005
Comment: Great gear for the price. Plus fast shipping got it to me before my road trip. The suit worked well keeping the rain and wind out. I'm 5'8, 185 lbs and the L size worked fine. I had enough room under the suit for more layers.
Great Suit for the price
Comment: I haven't had to use the suit yet but the quality is top notch. I'll take a guess that by the construction and the type of material used... I will remain dry. If you order by the chart you should have plenty of room to wear clothes underneath the suit. Four stars... only because I haven't used it yet.
Fast shipping, Good Product
Comment: The product came just as I was expecting it. Fast shipping.
Great Inexpensive Rainsuit
Comment: We recently took a trip thru the Blue Ridge Parkway and hit plenty of rain! My suit worked beautifully. Next time I'll take something for my shoes as well!
Great Price on Rain Gear!!!!
Comment: This is a great suit for the price, there are better ones out their but not at this price, great fit, great look, great price, can't go wrong with this one!
Jafrum Rain Gear came to rescue
Comment: My wife & I have purchased many things fron Jafrum with in the past 6 mos. very happy with everything. My recent was, a rain suit that I was hoping to never have to wear. Got hammered in Kansas city with rain! Stopping under an over pass, the suits went on so easily, and the ride home was so comfortable in these. I again, am very happy with Jafrum products... Thanks!
Comment: I am a new rider so I have NOT used the gear yet while riding, but I did use it while I was out in a downpour and it worked fine...a great deal price wise for what you get.
Motorcycle Rain Gear
Comment: Just ordered a motorcyle rainsuit 2 pc. for an early father's day gift. Went by the sizing chart, he's 6ft, 250 lbs and got the xl size and it fits perfect even over his coat. Nice heavy material, should last long. Would order it again!
Comment: Look good for the price, I normally wear a XL, but on the size Chart it looked like I needed a large. I got the large and it is the correct size.
Comment: THIS RAINSUIT IS VERY NICE QUALITY, BUT THE SIZING RUNS LARGE I NORMALLY WEAR A SIZE 4 WOMENS AND I HAD TO GO DOWN TO A SIZE 2XS AND IT STILL FIT'S OVER MY CLOTHS.
Comment: Got one for myself and one for my girlfriend. Fast shipping, we got them just in time for a tour to VT and northern NY. Good thing, because temps dropped into the 50s and it rained every single day. 100% waterproof AND windproof! Hoods are great when setting up camp in the rain. Sizes run quite big. I am 6ft tall, 160lbs. Medium was very loose, would go for a small next time, but pants might be too short. GREAT SUIT! GREAT VALUE!
RS5005 Rain Suit with Hood
Comment: A lot of "bang for your buck"! The rain suit is well-made and good-looking. The price is great compared to similar rain suits from other vendors. And, Jafrum's customer service can't be beat! I ordered a different suit first. It was delivered in two days. I returned it and ordered this suit, which was also delivered in two days. The credit on the returned suit was also handled expeditiously. With Jafrum's, you can count on quality and service!
Comment: Its the first rain suit i bought for cycling. Sure like the hood-stays on great. stayed nice and dry. shipping was very quick.
Comment: Excellent rainsuit for the price. Used it in Alaska on a cool, rainy day for the zip line outing. It kept me warm and dry and was quite comfortable. The XS was a bit too big, wished I had ordered the 2XS, but worked out fine. Highly recommend it!
Emergency Rain Gear
Comment: Bought to have for those 'just in case' moments. I am a 5'2" female, normally wear size large top, size 14 pants. Purchased the L and it was very big for me. Talk hubby into keeping it for him so I ordered again and got myself a M. Fits much better, legs are long, but hey I want to keep dry, not look like a fashion princess. Impressed w/ quality for being soooo reasonably priced. Trying to convince our friends into getting a suit from you folks too. Fits snuggly in side bags. Quick shipping too! Thanks!
Motorcycle Rain Gear
Comment: I ride an atv and needed some new rain gear. I read reviews and decided to try it out ! GREAT quality & price!! Had the chance to use it in a downpoor and it kept me nice and dry ! The suit does run large.... I wear a size 8 pant and Medium top so I ordered the size small and it fits fine over my clothes !
Keeping dry... but
Comment: I've worn the suit a couple of times. It keeps me dry but my pipes proved too hot for the heat path on the leg and the suit developed a small burn through the Durex heat patch. I understand the pants need to be loose to assist in getting them on over boots so I tried putting rubber bands around the lower leg to cinch up the extra fabric and that helped to keep the pants from touching the exhaust. Hope this helps someone else.
Ft walton Beach, FL
Comment: I bought the suit for a 2 week tour of the north west states and it never rained a drop in 17 days. Best purchase I've ever made.
Comment: Ordered a XS; I normally wear about a womans MED. Suite did well to keep me dry at Sturgis this year. Only complaint is that one velcro tab at wrist broke off right away and it would have been nice for leg openings to have zipper openings for easy pull over boots. Good product for the price.
Comment: Shipping was prompt. Only one negative. The zippers on the pant legs are too short. I wear a large in most jackets etc. This large will accommodate winter clothing easily. Good value recommendation.
Comment: Great price and fast shipping. Only negative is that the Medium I ordered was HUGE and I had to return it for a Small. Even it is too large, especially in the arms and legs, so it flaps a lot. Be sure to order at least a size smaller than you usually wear! The return process was fast and easy.
Bit long but works well
Comment: Living in Oregon raingear is a must. This works!
Great rainsuit, great price
Comment: This is a very nice rainsuit, and you can't beat the price. The hood is a real bonus. Just beware that the suit - both jacket and pants - runs large, and order accordingly.
Comment: Great rain Jacket keep me dry during Sandy 11/12 the super storm the one thing I wished is they sold the jacket and pants separate so I could buy different sizes.
Comment: Excellent value for the price. Would recommend the next size down though. It does run very big, had to return to get a smaller size.
Comment: Outsatnding, great price, quick shipment. I like the looks and the fitment.

Motorcycle Rain Suit and Helmet
Comment: The rain suit and helmet i ordered where great quick shipping and the rain suit was such a great product i ordered another one for my husband
Great Bend, KS
Comment: Like the quality and the sizing, easily able to get it over my other gear when caught out in the rain. Delivery was quik and efficient.
Comment: I'm 5' 10" 210 lbs. I ordered large and its a perfect fit allowing to wear over riding clothes. Quality suit for a fraction of the price! Highly recommend for someone looking to buy wet weather gear!
Rain Suit RS5005
Comment: Love it i like the hood so rain dont go down our backs. Great price,great deal
Comment: The rain gear is good not as thick as other vendors, but it fits well complain is the wrist part of the jacket is fits very lose and need to add an additional band around it, and no vent on the suit...
Thunder Under Two Piece Rain Suit with Hood
Comment: Looks to be good quality. Bought for planned trip to have just in case. Nice gear for the price.
Comment: For the price, can't beat em! I bought this set specifically for emergency rain storms, etc...so I am not going to ding due to ventilation/breathing...IF you intent to wear daily for long periods, expect a little condensation inside suit, it does not breath well. But it will keep you dry during a heavy downpour. I've encountered two so far, riding, or walking around, dry as dry gets (less a little persperation). Worth it for your emergency tote.
Jafrum Value and Quality
Comment: I ride 100 miles a day commuting rain or shine. This suit works well as I expect from Jafrum!
College Station, TX
Comment: I must admit that that for the price I wasn't expecting much, however, my first experience with it under heavy torrential tropical rain I came out dry. I had a small problem adjusting the pats at ankle area, as I didn't have it tight enough. It fits comfortable and I ve been using the jacket on a daily basis under cool to warm weather and it feels comfortable too.

Thunder Under Rain Gear Review
Comment: Like the Suit, Fit was Nice and works well in Light rain, Heavy rain for 8 hrs it started to soak thru. My Leathers were getting wet but It was put thru a lot. Hood was nice after I rememered it had one, kept the water from seeping in and running down my neck. Sheild were nice so that suit didn't melt to my headers. Straps on bottom a plus to keep water out and suit pulled down. Jafrum I always have good quick service from.
Comment: The two piece suit seems to be of good quality. Easily packs into bike without taking up a lot of room. Great doing business with Jafrum.
Thunder Under Two Piece Rain Suit with Hood RS5005
Comment: This suit is well worth the money. Actually a high quality suit. There has been plenty of rain this spring and the suit has kept me dry! The only downfall is the sizes are so big. I am a small guy of 5'9" and 150lb. and the XS fits fine. Plenty of room to wear over a hoody and jeans. So keep that in mind when ordering. I was hoping there would be an XXS for my wife but the XS is the smallest size offered,
Rain gear review
Comment: chart sizing helped out alot also i thought it would be cheaply made for the price but its not.have not had top use it yet but i'm sure it will work well.
Comment: My wife liked the product the only thing i did not like was the sizing it cost me more in shipping getting a a smaller size sending it back and paying for another to replace it. I will be carefull ordering any cothing all fits different.
rain suit review at jafrum
Comment: Great deal. very pleased
Comment: Great rain suit. True to size. I was worried about being too hot. The suit was not hot at all. The size was true and easy to put on. It was an awesome price as well. I would recommend this suit for all.
Thunder Under Motorcycle Rain Gear RS5005 Review
Comment: My husband bought a suit for alot more money just before he left with friends for a bike week. While he was gone I ordered this one for me. He was very impressed with this suit when I showed it to him upon his return. He said it was almost as good as the one he bought for over twice as much!
I had read all the reviews about sizes and got the correct size. This is a great suit and I am looking forward to staying dry on rides.
Comment: Bought the suit about 4 months ago, hoping to never have to use it. I just got back from a trip to North Carolina and got rained on all the way home. The suit kept me dry and warm even in a near monsoon!
Thunder Under Motorcycle Rain Gear with Hood RS5005 Review
Comment: Purchased the rain suit to have in my vehicle. Two days after getting it, I was caught in a heavy down pour and I had to be in it. This suit was comfortable and kept my dry. Wish I would have one months ago.
Comment: Ive bought a bunch of stuff from jafrum. Everything fits right and shows up super fast. Will be a loyal customer for years to come.
Comment: I bought this as a replacement - I needed a low cost suit that would serve me on daily work commutes. This one is fantastic! The sizing DOES run large, so check the charts and believe them! I get a lot of the summer Florida thunderstorms, and have been dry without exception!
Winter Haven, FL 33881
Comment: This is a FANTASTIC deal! An excellent suit! Sizing does run large, which is good as I am 6'3"/260lbs. I do wish the pants had a "stirrup" strap.

Thunder Under Motorcycle Rain Gear RS5005 Review
Comment: I ordered the Thunder Under rain suit on Tuesday and it was sitting on the front porch on Thursday afternoon. It was heavier than I expected and is great quality. I'm 6'1", 230, ordered the XL and found it just the right size. The jacket fits nicely with room to move and the pants will easily fit over heavy clothing wihout taking off my boots. A great bargain! Jafrum, you've done it again!
Thunder Under RS5005 Rainsuit Review
Comment: I got my suit in about 3-4 days. Just use as a back up and for my wife when she rides with me. Fits good if you read the chart sizes and or a little smaller. Would order again when I have to. Great suit for the price.
Thunder Under Rain Suit Review
Comment: It's difficult to find larger-sized gear & at cheaper prices & this item did both! My husband was very pleased.
Thunder Under Rain-suit RS5005 Review
Comment: Great suit..nice to have the straps under the boots. Great price
Great suit... Great Price
Comment: This was a great rainsuit for the money! The material is a bit stiff, but it was still a great buy. I am a big guy (6'2", 400LB), so it is hard to find stuff that fits well... and the sizing was great. Jacket goes on over my winter coat if I need it, and pants go on over my jeans and boots.
I would deffinitely recommend this suit to anyone who is looking for a great deal and a quality product! And as always, buying from Jafrum was great. Thanks for the great service and product!
Rain Suit with Hood RS5005 Review
Comment: GREAT RAIN SUIT. MUCH BETTER QUALITY THAN I EXPECTED. THE FIT IS GREAT AND VERY COMFORTABLE. THIS IS A GREAT SITE TO ORDER FROM. NO HASSLE AND PROMPT DELIVERY.
Thunder Under RS5005 Rain Suit Review
Comment: I ordered this suit in preparation for a week long trip over Memorial Day.
I figured I would not wait till the last minute!
I was concerned about the sizing, but after reading the reviews, I went ahead with your recommendations!
When the suit arrived I went and put on my riding gear (3 season jacket with armor, and leather chaps) and tried it on.
Everything fit VERY well over my gear!
I am IMPRESSED with the construction and overall quality of this suit! The price CANNOT be beat!
I hope to never need it, but I am sure it will serve me well!
Thanks Jafrum for your products!
Greg in Colorado
Comment: wonderfully fast shipping as always, good, product, fits well, and seems sturdy. Haven't got to test it out much yet, but very pleased so far.

Salt Lake City Utah
Quality Made Suit
Comment: Great quality made suit for the price. However way too big for my frame. I am 5' 4", 120 lbs and I ordered the small according to this size chart. The suit was way too big and extremely long for my petite frame, even with extra layers on. By looking at the sizing chart the XS would even be too big for me. Where are all the suits made for ladies? It's upsetting you don't have more suits specifically made for a womans petite frame. The one I actually liked is now discontinued. And Joe Rocket doesn't have a rain hood attached to their rain jacket? That's certainly not very practical for riding a motorcycle in the rain. Who designs this stuff? And unfortunately now I have had to pay to return this item. Because of this I would no longer order from your site to avoid having to pay return shipping for items that don't fit based on an incorrect sizing chart. I give the product 4 stars, but disappointed with everything else involving this transaction.
Great Deal, But Runs a Little Big
Comment: My wife and I ordered a matching set (yeah, we're "THAT" couple), and were surpised at the quality. That being said, I'm 6'0 and weigh 240 and typically wear an XL to XXL. I can comfortably wear a Large in this rainsuit, with room for my leathers underneath. This is a great deal, but you should probably order a size smaller than you are thinking.
Rain Suit with Hood RS5005 Review
Comment: Purchased the RS5005 a week prior to going 2014 Myrtle Bike week. The rain suite arrived a few days later - quick shipping. In a group of 6 bikes, we rode from Raleigh through significant rain/downpours for 2+ hours. When we reached our destination, I was the only rider that had dry socks and a dry shirt. The other riders kept bending over to pull their rain suite pant legs down. The stirrups that came with the RS5005 kept the pant legs from riding up my legs and my feet bone dry. The other riders also burned their rain suits on their exhaust when their pant legs rode up their legs. I had no burn marks on my rain suite. I enjoyed a few beverages and grinned while my buddies attempted to dry out their boots with a hair dryer :)
waiting for the rain!!!
Comment: Love the quality of this suit, as for wether it works in the rain, l have no idea. But if the suit is from Jafrum l believe it will work well. All Jafrum gear is great!!
Comment: "for the most part satisfied however the sizes are very limited seems that most popular sizes are out of stock. Sizes seem to run a bit big I'm 5'9 200 (athletic build) ordered and XL it was too big need a large. Didn't have a large in stock even in different styles. Ordering my girlfriend a small it was too big for her (she's 5'2 or 3. 130lbs) need an extra small they did not have in stock. I was pretty impressed with the quality of the rain suits out of the box. Have not used it yet obviously but they appear to be pretty awesome. I would highly recommend giving them a try the price is amazing if you can find your size."
A rain suit is a necessary item in any rider's apparel collection. Even if
you don't ever plan on riding in the rain, there are some things that are simply
not in your control. If you have ever gotten soaked to the bone with cold rain
30 or more miles away from home, you probably already own one of these. Rain
suits are made in a variety of styles and materials most of which are available
on our website, Jafrum.com
Thunder Under RS5000 two piece rainsuit is made from nylon. Nylon is a good
fabric for a rainsuit because it is lightweight, easy to pack, and somewhat
breathable. It can also be very reasonably priced. This complete suit with all
of the features I'm about to show you is on sale on
Jafrum.com for sub sixty bucks. The only
downsides to nylon as a rainsuit fabric are that it is not flexible, most
rainsuits aren't flexible, and it doesn't hold up to sunlight very well. All
that means to you the rider is that you don't want to lay it out in the sun for
extended periods of time to dry. If you take proper care of a nylon suit it will
provide you with protection from the elements for many years and miles.
This rainsuit has just about every feature available in this type of apparel,
and It is available in five color ways. All the suits are mostly black with
accent color choices of orange, yellow, blue, red, and gray.
Let's take a closer look at the three quarter length jacket. This jacket has a
durable plastic zipper that is covered by these dual panels and secured with a
hook and loop system to ensure a waterproof closure. All the seams are tape
sealed as well to keep the water out. There is a hidden hood in the collar to
keep water from running down your neck into the jacket. The look is very clean
because there are no pockets, waist adjusters, or stretch panels on this jacket.
They left the stretch areas off the sleeves as well as some folks do not like
the feeling against their skin for extended periods. There is a hook and loop
type adjuster though for a secure fit.
The interior of the jacket has been equipped with a mesh lining. This will help
wick moisture away from your skin and also keep the rain gear from sticking to
your skin when you start to sweat.
Now let's get a look at the pants. The waist of the pants is stretchy all the
way around and has a draw string for adjustability. The cuffs of the legs are
also adjustable with zippered expanders and waterproof gussets. The pocket on
the pants has a full width hook and loop closure system and is almost completely
waterproof. There are reinforced panels in high wear areas on the both the
backside and also on the legs where the fabric can come into high heat areas of
the bike and rub on footpegs. The legs also have removable stirups to help keep
your pantlegs from riding up and letting water into your boots. These pants do
not have the mesh lining found in the jacket.
