    Best rain pants for 'bent riding?

    So, riding a DF bike I seldom worried much about getting wet when it was raining. I have some Bellweather pants that are sort of an extreme cold weather thing with a wind/waterproof barrier, but I've never had anything for warmer temps. Since mostly it's only your upper thighs that get wet I usually just dealt with rain and being wet. Never bought any rain pants. So, on a bent obviously more of your legs get wet, so I'm wondering if any of you folks have a favorite for rain pants that breath reasonably well and are good for cool to warmish weather.

    Would you consider "Rainlegs" or a good copy.Please make sure the waterproof trousers can`t hook over the derailleur post,and lock your leg to the bike.

    I've had good luck with the Novara rain pants from REI.
