I've been using Showers Pass for five years now. In the cold months, that's almost daily. I'm on my second jacket, the elite 2.0. The first one was their "Century" jacket. It wore out after three years. The zipper malfunctioned and the DWR was wearing out.The second one I received in Dec 2010 and already the zipper on the MP3 pocket is shot, doesn't work anymore. Other than that they're excellent three season rain jackets. But they're not perfect. The other day I rode into work in a torrential downpour that lasted about 30 minutes, you know where it feels like someone is holding a firehose on you. At that time, I had water leak in along the length of the zipper and some leakage in the arms. Just dampness. But in a steady rain the jackets perform admiralbly. This jacket is one of the reasons that I'm able to commute everyday in frigid temperatures. Excellent wind and cold blocker.I've had two of them now and when the second one wears out I'm going with the J&G jacket next. Just to see how they compare. But it gets good reviews too.
For the feet, if you're riding everyday, you can't beat the Showers Pass Touring shoe covers. Built to last. You can go to war in these things. Last I looked they were on sale at the SP website. They'll keep your feet dry thru the worst that Mother Nature throws at you.
For the record I use the Rainshield O2 pants. the black ones. I've had them for five years and am very happy with them.
