Now this isn't intended for crazy rain riding sports. But, for the 2 yrs I had my old frogg toggs I have only really used them while on road trips. If I get caught in the rain around here, its usually not that big of a deal and I just tuff it out wet. It seems every ride I go out of town I use my rain gear.
The first time I used my rain gear, I burned the shit to the pipes on the right side. I've done that now twice and they look like this now.

That being said, they suit still works well. But when the wife came home with her new suit (she didn't have any before). I loved the size it balls into, that being a 9" circle pouch that is part of the hood. $99

So I got me the men's version for the same $99

I simple want a smaller set for the saddle bags. Plus the HD rain gear won't burn against the pipe. I can now store both our sets in less space than just my old frogg toggs.

We'll see if we use them in a couple weeks when we head to carlisle bike fest in PA.

come on now gas you knew you were secretly waiting for it to rain to try it out. like a little kid with a halloween costume you were trying it on in front of the mirror and you probably took a shower with it on to test it out too. hahaha

There worth there $! We just got back from the UP for a four day 900 mile trip and it poured! But we still had a BLAST cause we were dry as a popcorn fart! Oh speaking of FART, don't do! You fart at 1pm you finally smell it at 4..... :)

We've got this kind with the boot covers, they were pricey, but we bought them on our way out to Laconia and we road threw 550 miles of straight down pour. And didn't get wet.

We actually got them for a little less, but they are the last set I will EVER need. Well built, and easy to get on and off in a hurry once you do it a few times....

I think that's what BB sells as well. But for me I wanted them to bunch up SUPER SUPER small. That is my set.
