Lupine is arguably the best if you have money. Homebrew is the best if you have time. Dinoote is the best value- great light and good price. I run a 600L and 400L front and 400rear. People like...

The bare zipper is sure to leak. Gore Tex is great but not with the bare zipper. It kind of defeat the purpose.

Well, update, another blow out this morning after filling to 110psi (below 116psi max rating). Three tubes in 6 miles. Something is up- rim tape or bead. I will sherlock it this evening.
