I am an American, yes, but I am basically kinda poor (Americans aren't poor, right?) Anyways, my bike riding will include commuting, it's a cheap Costco bike. I want some rain gear/clothes, not fancy shmancy pricey pants and shirt or jacket, not any competition stuff, more just a bright yellow or orange raincoat and pant (pullover) that I can use for my commute to school. Stuff I am seeing on online stores is for around 100 or so. Isn't there anything for about 50 that has both parts?
I suppose the primary differences between a regular raincoat and pant are they way the coat on a bike outfit rides lower for backsplash, low weight and bulk, and durability.
Sure, if I need to, in a pinch, get a regular rain outfit, but it sure would be nice to have something better if I can find it for an affordable price. What IS the markup on bike stuff, anyways?
I know most of you here have the money and are serious experienced cyclists, so my apologies for being a lowly bum, but that is why I will be going to school sometime next year. BTW, I'm an old timer.
