Don’t Die Rain Jacket: A Must
The Don’t Die Rain Jacket by Death Rider is definitely one of the must-have items in the trunk or bag of the real biker. A real motorcyclist does not stop even in front of a storm or heavy rain. Above all, the desire to ride always prevails over the weather. No biker has ever stopped in the face of a cloudy sky or the first signs of a storm. To ride a trail with raindrops on your face can be a great adventure! But rain is no joke. It can cause serious damage to tracks, wreak havoc on bikes and soak your clothes, making your day anything but happy.
And be warned, rainy days also bring with them a host of other closely related consequences. It’s not uncommon that after a heavy rainstorm (especially in spring/summer) the moisture thickens into a mass of heat that you need to keep under control. And that makes you sweat. Hence the importance of choosing the right equipment and clothing to deal with the rain and prevent rainwater from wrecking a motorbike ride: the Don’t Die rain jacket from Death Rider is just the right thing for you.
Whoever chooses to ride in the rain needs not only a waterproof and protective fabric but also, and above all, a product that is breathable. Certainly, it is necessary to equip oneself with a protective garment to minimise water infiltration. That’s why Death Rider’s Don’t Die Rain Jacket has a long, reverse front zip, protected with a double waterproof gusset. The waistband keeps you dry with maximum freedom of movement. Finally, seams weld every cut and insert ensuring complete waterproofing.
Overall, this is a comfortable, lightweight and durable jacket. Truly excellent for riding in even the most adverse weather conditions. The logo and the reflective coating on the Don’t Die rain jacket by Death Rider make it particularly visible and therefore its usefulness goes far beyond protecting against wind and rain. In the latter cases it’s absolutely perfect. Folded up it doesn’t take up much space and can even be slipped into a jacket pocket. Excellent fit and very good quality.

10 tips for riding in the rain with your Don’t Die Rain Jacket
Keep these details in mind and you’ll feel safer on your bike:
- Be careful in the early rains as they tend to be more slippery due to oil residue on the ground.
Don’t ride through puddles because you don’t know how deep they are and you could fall in.
Slow down your speed because visibility decreases with rain, not only yours but also that of others.
Have adequate equipment: the Don’t Die Motorcycle Rain Jacket, helmet with good visibility, gloves and boots.
If the rain is very heavy, find a place where you can shelter until it stops – remember, better late than never.
Avoid stepping on traffic paint as it tends to be more slippery with water.
Check your bike’s lights, remember it’s important to be seen by others.
Brake very gently and try to use the rear brake more, because if the front wheel skids, you’re unlikely to avoid a big hit.
When you arrive at your destination, dry the main parts of your bike that have become wet: disc, controls, handlebars, etc.
During the rainy season, lubricate your bike’s chain often, as it loses lubrication when constantly wet.
Use extreme caution, slow down and make smooth movements, don’t get too close to other vehicles, stay visible and enjoy the rain.
