It's raining like we'll need an Ark here soon (that post tropical storm that tosses up a ton of moisture in the midwest)... so I got to thinking about rain gear
Rain Pants: I think I am going to pass on the uber techie Rainlegs and just get some standard rain pants (for the ocassional really BAD days)
Are there any better than others? Nashbar has
O2 Rainwear 3flow Performance Pant Also, how does one size these things so they fit over whatever pants you have on? Better to bite the bullet and buy local? (nashbar only has XXL size now...42-44. I'm a 32-33 waist)
ARe these as good as any? I don't want to pay tons of money... it gets inclement here, but not like the Olympic Peninsula or Portland or Seattle.
I see where outfits like CAmpmor and other have rain pants that are not actually listed as Cycling rain pants. Are cycling rain pants extra sturdy in the right places or would a pair of standard issue rain pants do the trick?
Also, while we are on the topic:

The Poncho kinda looks cool... and lets air in
