A motorcycle rain jacket is very handy in the first place and easy to put on. You can wear it on top of a waterproof or water-repellent jacket to keep the outer shell dry, or combine it with a wind-breaking or leather jacket.
Your upper body stays dry for sure, and the wind gets a lot less play. A motorcycle rain jacket is stronger than a traditional raincoat, that you don't want to wear on the highway when there is a lot of headwind. Of course wind (and therefore also water) can still find a way up and inside.
Motorcycle rain jackets with a breathable outer fabric prevent you from getting wet from the inside as a result of body moisture or sweat.
Tip from RAD house
The sizes of rainwear for the motorcycle correspond to the size table of motorcycle jackets. Not with the sizes of your body. Are you wearing a motorcycle jacket size L, then you also need a rain jacket size L, not a roomier one. Does your jacket have a size indication in numbers, then you can use the table below to see which size rain jacket this corresponds with.
