I know a bunch of you are more sunny weather riders, but I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for a fully waterproof winter riding jacket. I'm riding year round in Seattle and while the Termoscud lap blanket does a good job of keeping my legs warm and dry, I am struggling to find an armored, warm and waterproof jacket that really does keep me warm and doesn't leak through the front zipper or down the neck.

The Tucano Urbano Green Park parka(no longer available) looks good as does their Central Park parka. Does anyone have experience with riding in a 3/4 length parka? I'd like something long enough that I could sit on it to keep my back end dry.

Any suggestions? I'm not opposed to layering but I'd really rather have one warm winter jacket that will keep me dry and warm. If I could also look stylishly cool, that would be great too.

I use an electric battery operated jacket under a rain jacket. Get a rain jacket that is a size to large so it fits over the electric jacket.

I have always used these. Bought it to fit over armored jacket and pants when I rode bigger bikes. Keeps you dry and stores in a small space.

Funny but still practical.

If I were to be riding in winter months , well very cold , I would be looking at something like a Olympia Newport Jacket and pants. There was a guy on fb that traveled all over for 10 weeks and 12000 km's on a KLR , if you're interested search The Lap on FB. But anyways he gave his advice on his gear and how it worked. Maybe extreme or not but when it comes to cold I like to be dry and wet , on my trips I generally layer up and put on rain gear but its never 100%.

I have a few waterproof jackets that are warm. Look at the Livingstone, fits the vintage look. I also have a Vanson waxed cotton that I wear heavy sweaters underneath.

Look at the first 2 links, they fit the vintage look and the Livingston is pretty warm. For REALLY cold weather I love the sand 3 and have a heated vest I wear underneath as well as heated glove liners.

I literally ride year round in any weather.
