My "decent" set of jacket and pants are officially on my black list right now after riding in a torential rain this morning. They're a supposedly high end Taiwan brand that I bought at a top end outdoors gear shop. They soak up water into the fabric, but dry out quickly when hung. I even treated them with spray silicon but the fabric still soaks water. It rain before the soaked water did not transfer to the interior, but this morning it did, leaving me feeling soggy. Since I'm in Taiwan right now buying a quality jacket and pants from the US will cost me a bunch in shipping. I'l forget going back to the outdoors shop and go see what I can find at the better bike shops in town.
