Riding in the rain - headgear?
Folks, just need a little assistance from you all. I've gotten my rain wear which doesn't have a hood (Endura Gridlock jacket and pants via Chain Reaction Cycles) and I was wondering.... in case of really heavy rain, how do you keep your head dry?
I'm currently only using a shower cap over my helmet but from my one experience so far, it isn't able to prevent rainwater from running in from the back of my neck... not to mention that it was flapping in the wind, and doesn't fit over my EVT Safezone mirror well. I was recently reading about Gore's Universal Hood... but I don't think there are retailers here in Singapore. For nearly 50 USD a piece, that's quite a price to take a leap of faith!
This is the ONLY informative photo that gives me a clue how it is supposed to be worn... (no, that's not me in the photo!) was from Performance Bike
)'s online shop...
What I'm concerned about is being able to cover either my head and let the rainwater run off the side and back of my rain jacket... but from the photo, I don't get it why the hood is not overlapping the collar! Can anyone help shed some light about rain protection headwear as well as some other solutions or recommendations?
