Living in QLD, there is often Sh1tloads of rain... I'm sure there are many different ways and systems people have to keep dry when riding, what works for you? I bought a dririder jacket, got a air mesh type one so I wouldn't get too hot, but when it has its waterproof lining it, obviously it isn't breatheable and is way too hot. It hasn't poured when i've had it in but I suspect it is not fully waterproof. I mostly wear kevlar jeans, which obviously aren't waterproof. When it rains I have been wearing my jacket without its waterproof lining, and kevlar pants, and putting a rain suit on over the top (2 piece), this so far seems to be the best way, only that the pants are too short and I end up with the bottom 30cm of my jeans drenched, and shoes too. My gloves (RJays Bandit) are leather perforated and only cover my hands, don't go up my arms at all, so there is usually a 3-4cm gap between gloves end and jacket sleeves. I was thinking about buying some waterproof pants such as Dririder Vortex pants, apparently it zips in the bottom of the jacket (not sure what the point of this is for safety or waterproofing). But they are $300. Maybe I'd be better getting a 1 piece rain suit, or a different 2 piece rain suit, and just have normal gear and then whip out the raincoat when it starts raining? Does everyone just let their feet get a bit wet or have waterproof boots? What about hands? just let them get wet through your gloves? How do you stop the rain going down your neck from between your helmet end and jacket start? The other problem I have is when at work I often have to go out to meetings. Most of the time I'm happy to ride around the CBD with no safety gear. At my meetings I need to be wearing business slacks and business shirt. Changing when I get there isn't an option. So should I just wear raincoat/suit over the top of work clothes? I am 6 foot tall and my work shoes tend to get wet when I do this, should I have some big gumboots or something to put over the top of them, I can keep my work shoes in my top box (35L) and wear gumboots or something and change them when I get to my meeting?? How does everyone deal with the rain? Obviously I don't care if I get a little wet, just don't want to turn up to work or meetings looking like a drowned rat. At work I can have showers and get into work clothes /changed at work.
