What's your rain gear?

I usually use a Showers Pass Elite jacket with pit zips opened along with Rain Legs. I have also used a long sleeve Castelli Gabba jersey if downpours are not expected but just light on/off rain. It has zips on the body which help vent some heat. I think they have replaced the Gabba with the Perfetto jersey.

At least this weekend's 200k is one of the flatter ones in terms of climbing. It is always a balance of going hard enough to stay warm versus sweating to death.

You might also want to think about some sort of gasket where you tights/leg warmers meet your cycling shoes. I read about a neat idea I have not tried yet. Get some large/extra large long black rubber gloves. Cut off the last 4 or 5 inches and slide them up and over the tops of where the tights/leg warmers meet so the water does not run down into your shoes.

I am very interested in the Gore Shakedry jacket.
