Post Rain Gear
on: June 21, 2013, 20:59

So...we are sitting here in the hotel doing a little "debriefing" of our ride. One of the things we felt could be improved was our rain gear. Would anyone care to share what is working (or not) for them? Thanks in advance!

I have the Tourmaster Elite Series II Rain Jacket and Pants along with the Tourmaster Deluxe Rainboot Covers. I have used the rain suit once coming back from PHX on New Years when I hit sleet, snow, drizzle, and very hard rain through the passes east of San Diego, and stayed completely dry. I also have Tourmaster Dri-Mesh and Cold-Tex Gloves.

I've had very good luck with Tourmaster for the first few years, but I've noticed one common theme on most of these products with plastic zippers. Sometimes they do not work when you buy them, so try everything on first, and that incudes BOTH booties. After a few years of folding the gear, as well as hot and cold weather, I've observed the zippers tend to fail. Before each ride, I suggest trying on the gear to ensure the zippers can't be pulled apart.

On my trip I brought a simple set of Frogg Togs and they worked perfect. That and it didnt take up hardly any room in the bags. In expensive and work really well. Like Steve I wore the slip on boot covers and though they kept me dry it was awkward when I stopped. As for gloves, never really found any good ones. Ended up just getting a breathable pair that would dry out faster than leather gloves when it stopped raining.
