Apparently, you don't need all the fancy motorcycle-named rain wear. I just saw a big guy on a Harley with his duck hunting camoflauge parka. Got me thinking!!

I ride with all the gear - rain gear isn't an issue for me. But, I do have to say that TourMaster has nice gear - I own the Pivot jacket and Caliber pants. Only problem - the Caliber pants leaked during a recent rain storm. I got off the bike looking like I needed Depends.

I have a set of Frogg Toggs in case I get caught in the rain. Very light weight and breathable, and you can compact them into a small space for storage.

I, too, have the Frogg Toggs and love them. I have a mesh jacket and use the Frogg Toggs top whenever it's too cold to go with the mesh alone. So I figure I've worn it at least 100 times and it still kept me dry through a downpour on Sunday. It's getting fuzzy in places and it has worn through in one place on the inside of the collar but how many $40 rain suits last that long? I suspect that it will last me through this summer. I might need to get a new one sometime this winter (I ride year 'round).
