waterproof shorts/riding pants
I've searched the forums some and have been unable to find any topic focusing on waterproof riding shorts or pants. I need some, it's starting to rain a lot in Chicago and while I have my showers pass jacket, my pants get soaked. Does anyone have any websites or brands to check out? How about shoe covers?
Sorry if this has been posted before, if so, feel free to redirect me.
Cabela's has their own brand of "Dry Plus" rain gear that I've found to be quite economical and effective. It performs like Gore-Tex. Having said that, I've never been comfortable on a bicycle in waterproofs (they work great on the motorcycle, however). I prefer something that'll keep me warm even when I'm soaked (most winter tights do this) or run a soft shell pant that'll take about 90% of the weather.
