Non-Black Cycling Pants?

Does anyone make breathable, waterproof cycling pants that aren't black? My bike is black, my jacket is black, and my bag is black so I could use a little more visibility.

Warning: There is a reason for black. If you wear light colored, a wet saddle will stain your shorts and it looks like you had an "accident." Know what I mean, jelly bean?

Why would you have a BLACK Jacket????????

Hell-of-time to worry about visibilty, trade in the Jacket for something VISIBLE.

This is what I wear... the sleeves light up with car headlights hitting it.

It's an ARC'TERYX jacket that I got for cheap on summer clearance so I didn't have much choice on color. I'm sure I am already pretty visible with my lights and reflective strips on my bag anyway, but I would prefer not to wear all black.

I hear you, but waterproof material shouldn't stain.

Want some added visibility no matter what color your clothes are - and all year long?
