Sydney has had p'ssing rains from mid night last night. This morning I decided to give it a test to my rain / winter gears, which include the following: Ixor three layer jacky, all layers are on, first time. Rjays rain pant, do not remenber the model, it costs me about $40 Dririder winter glove (water proof), about $90. Dririder boot, water proof, about $170 After 20key into CBD (about 45minutes ride), I got: Wet on my right sleeve, water was dropping. I think this may be the cause that I did check if the glove was wear'd properly or not before I rode. Otherwise, the gloves and jacky are handling well. Water leak with the Rjays rain pant, cool and wet around my bum. Luckily I got changes at work. I bought this one two months ago and this is the first time I used it. :evil: I will try if I can get a refund, or exchange with other brands. A bit wet on the toes on my both feet. It is bearable but still un-happy as the boots are labled with "Water Proof". In general, I would not recommend new riders ride on heavy rains. You need to go extreamly slow and carefull when turning. Also fogs on visor is a problem. I am thinking of buying another full face helmet and hope the new one (spening $500+) can handle the situation better.
