The last couple of months have been pretty wet in Sydney, and trying to stay simultaneously dry and comfortable (not too cold, not to hot) in the spring rain has been very difficult. So, I've been searching for the right combination of gear. I'm sure you are familiar with the problems involved. Kevlar reinforced jeans are great when its not too cold, and you can wear them all day. But they are useless in the wet. Bulky dririder and motodry pants are great in the winter, but even with the liner out they are often too hot - and you need to keep a change of pants with you for work or whatever. I was really looking for something that could handle a decent downpour, but would keep me cool in the warm rain, and that I could wear all day if I was feeling lazy. Something that you could put on if you look at the BOM and realise that it probably will rain at some point and you don't want to get soaked. So, I visited MCAS on Paramatta rd and picked up a pair of Draggin Jeans Oilskin pants based on a few reviews, in the hope that it'd keep my legs dry but wouldn't make them overheat. I haven't been disappointed. The jeans themselves are made of a canvas like material, stiffer than jeans, and slightly smooth to the touch (but not actually oily). The fit, if you're like me probably will be a size or two larger than you normally get, because they don't stretch at all. So don't buy a given size and hope they will stretch later, because they won't. If you make a mistake, you'll just have to lose some weight if you want them to fit, or sell them on ebay. They're reasonably cool, though in the heat your legs are little insulated, and the sun can make you sweat a little, but its no worse than wearing other motorcycle appropriate jeans with kevlar padding. Which brings us to the important part: performance in the wet. I'm really happy to report that for my 30 minute commute to and from work, I can safely be rained on for the entire length and arrive mostly dry in the legs. I have noticed where the fabric is pulled tight against your leg, some of those patches might get a little damp, and the legs need to be a little longer to avoid having water go up your leg. You definitely want to buy some rubber bands and wear proper boots and strap the pants around the boot or blouse them or something like that. I suspect that if you're a smaller lad than I and you make sure you buy a size that has plenty of room, you can minimise the areas that are under pressure, and the water won't seep through as much. But the important thing is, between my dririder jacket and these pants, I can arrive home or at work in warm spring rain feeling not too warm, and not more than a little damp, and I can wear the things all day in a pinch. So, if you're looking for a pair of jeans that can handle a bit of rain and keep you mostly dry, the Draggin Jeans Oilskins can do the job.
