Decisions decisions ....
    Just buy one and if it rains put a kugool over the top.

    After spending time trying several options and after recommendation from Yonkyo and Mrs Yonkyo (who were in the dealership, I abandoned the Streetguard 4 idea, and purchased the GS Dry Jacket:

    Labelled as 'WATERPROOF', it has a membrane within the shell, it feels MUCH lighter than my Rallye 3 (Therefore should not hold a swimming pool-full of water when soaked, which chills me greatly !!!) and inbuilt membrane should make it waterproof (If it works). When I wear my internal Keis X25 heated jacket, which is a passable smart fleece, it hopefully will keep me warm and dry without need for additional, bulky, PITA paraphernalia
    p.s. its £200 cheaper.

    Oh and p.s. p.s. dealer believes that the 2017 Rallye jacket will be waterproof

    Ask 2 Wheel Humvee

    He bought one in 2015 for a Spanish trip and after a monsoon on the way back to Santander, it was anyting but a GS 'Dry' suit...............it was more like a wetsuit

    He returned it for a full refund after the holiday

    Yes, I hear what you say, but equally hear tales of woe for the Streetguard and I must add that the Streetguard does feel more substantial and MORE likely to be waterproof. Either way, if I get wet shirt sleeves then it's going back.

    As did my stepfather Richard, he had the same jacket which also leaked like a seive his jacket also shed a popper button and the closer from another and the faux leather collar had all but disintegrated after 1 trip, piss poor quality we both got a full refund, I was going to sell my 5 year old trail guard suit but it performs so much better than the GS Dry that I've kept it, buyer beware!

    Is the 2015, the same as the 2016 ? I must give it a try; I'll soon know if it leaks, then I'll sing like a canary.

    Well, I used mine last week in Europe and we had some torrential downpours on the Autobahn of biblical proportions (traffic down to 50kph)

    The jacket was superb, even though I forgot to close the rear vents

    Never leaked, not a drop came through, with the storm collar fitted

    Superb piece of kit, versatile and does what is meant of it

    Very happy

    The last time I wore mine in the rain, the jacket sleeves let in water, and the trousers leaked as if I'd pissed myself. And this is the 3rd replacement suit!!

    Me, identical issue.

    Bought Rukka gear now and it's doing well. Super comfortable.
    Even has a chest protector built in.

    What are you doing wrong?

    Do you wear the inner jacket in rain or use the zip on storm hood?

    Probably leaving his fur hanging out of the collar area allowing the water to seep in via capillary action bound to be some form of operator error

    No, I think you should wear both, as the storm cuffs on the inner, stops rain travelling up the outstretched arms
