    Motorcycle Rainsuit, anyone use one for winter?!


    I know the breathability to these suits is lacking.

    I know that some of them run extra large.

    I know that people who ride motorcycles rate them high.

    How about it, anyone try one to get around town in the rain?

    The cost for these things is moderate, around 39.95 online.
    Sometimes when I'm out doing a shopping run, I'll be offered a free sample (cut of pizza, doughnut, cheezywiz thingy)...little do they know that behind every bite is my gasoline!

    Don't do it! You will over-heat. They are made for keeping a mostly inactive driver warm and dry.

    Maybe if you're naked underneath.....

    Your range of motion will likely be hindered too. $40 for a motorcycle rain suit? I wouldn't trust those on a scooter, they'd probably fall apart during the first rain or at highway speeds.

    Picked one up in a recycle box, red/white/black German,
    large size, but sleeves need a gauntlet glove, as they're Rather short.
    for stated size..... yours for shipping cost..

    For this winter I have a Grunden's made Cycle cape..
    firehose waterproof.
