Try contacting Bachoo Motors and Performance Racing Store (both are in Mumbai)

I know for sure Zulfi from Bachoo Motors has a 2 piece rain suit and it doesn't cost much too.

I've bought some gear from both parties and have had positive experiences so i'd recommend them anyday.

But the problem is that it is too bulky and storage is a problem. I've seen a bright yellow rain coat that my friend had brought with him from abroad. it was extremely light and could be folded into a really tiny packet. I've searched a lot of places online and was not able to find something like that. It looked like nylon but was obviously something more water tight. Suggestions please!
I had a brand new green one stolen from my Omni taxi (damn those sliding windows!!) in Bangalore years ago
I'm pretty sure what you are talking about was the Eddie Bauer Sac Jac. Now replaced by the Rip Pac jacket. Folds into a pocket. Available here: RipPacĀ® Jacket | Eddie Bauer

Cheers.

Thanks gthang. Now all I need to do is find a similar water proof pant!

Go for DSG Motomesh, costs INR 850 and is VFM.

P.S. Ask for Manju in Orion and speak to him. You could refer my name for a discount if required
Grabbed the pair of Motomesh. Paid 850 for it. ventilation is pretty decent and good for daily runs. Thanks man.
Am planning to get a DSG textile riding jackets today. Could you suggest which one would be better among Maze, Nero and Phoenix. The maze is priced at 6k and the other two at 5.5. Looks like Maze is a bit better, goiung by the description and price difference. Please comment.

I would try if your referral helps me knock a couple of hundreds from the price.

an yeah, those SPIDI vertigos looks neat man!

rev hard, ride safe. Hail trance.

Hi Abhi,

I'm not aware of the features of the Maze but the Nero is quite popular. You might want to try the RJay's range which is available at Bachoo motors.

My boots are Sidi's not Spidi's, both brands are entirely different

Sorry for the late reply. Hope you managed to source a jacket of your choice.

This is what I use while riding:

1. Daijiya Tribal-Red helmet
2. DSG Maze Titanium Gray Jacket
3. Cramster MX3 riding gloves (replaced my DSG golves with these ones and trust me these are so much better)
4. Balaclava (only during the chilling winter rides)

Next on the shopping list are a pair of good riding boots and a riding pant with knee sliders !!

i got the DSG Nero and like it too, except for the heating issue. stay long enough at a signal and you'll be drenched in sweat.

anybody know a way around this? i keep the vents open, but i guess they don't come into play at slower speeds.

I'm planning on getting the Nero - isnt the heat tolerable after removing the inner warm lining? This is what DSG recommends in summer for the Nero.

Also, have you found the jacket to be durable? My DSG Moto Mesh gloves have a large tear under the thumb in the inner palm area within 4 months of use.

heat is not the problem (it is bearable even on a 180sec signal on a hot day), sweat is. imagine entering the office completely drenched in sweat! and this is after removing the detachable lining and keeping all six vents open.

the jacket takes a bit of getting used to. the first time you wear it if feels like a you're wearing a football (American) uniform, with the shoulder pads and all!
i didn't find anything wrong with the quality. pretty solid build. i feel safe in it

PS: i got the Cramster MX3 and its been 4+ months and no issues thus far.

Thanks. I did try on the Nero in a shop once, and it felt very secure(with all the heavy padding), commando like! Quality was top notch.
Trying to imagine what it'll be wearing it over the formals i wear for work

Since Hyderabad has a dry climate, sweat shouldnt be much of a problem for me.

IIRC, DSG Maze is more suited in hot conditions and places that have high humidity. I guess I will go for that soon.

Have you removed the inner warm liner?

Unless its a ventilated mesh jacket, you will feel hot. I ride without the warm liner in my cramster raptor jacket and still get soaked in sweat during my rides.

But then mesh jackets don't provide any significant abrasion resistance.

Any reviews post use - since its summer? It looks like a brilliant jacket...does make sense to buy this over a 9k Rjay's.
