O forget what brand I have, but I like it. I knwo that does not really help.

However, I have recently ordered a new Fieldsheer Jacket and pants. Both waterproof. I have not used it yet, but I believe it will keep me just as dry, but warm also.

I have a 3-yr-old one-piece rain suit from Fieldsheer. It works great. No leaks, ever. If I remember right it was about $75 and I'll get another one when the time comes.

You can always go with the 29.95 kind if you really hate yourself or riding

There's nothing better than a good Rainsuit when you're caught on a rain storm, believe me, you will pad yourself in the back the first time that happens... even if your friends give you grief for spending more than they did because a good ole PVC rainsuit is all you need .

There is no secret here, do a little search on the different brands and go for the higher ones... if you are serious about riding in the rain.

Compleletly butt ugly (but at least no one will steal them) - Frogg Toggs. They pack up really small and they work.

I've got two sets of these and would agree with you (small and work well).

I have a river road one piece.If you don't close it just right and I mean just right it leaks.I've been caught a few times and only stayed dry once.Good thing most the rides where on the way home.It only leaks in one spot. Thats right the crotch looks like you pissed youself.
I've used the Nelson Riggs Storm Rider(2 piece) with good results.

The River Road (already mentioned) at Cycle Gear is not a bad product for the occasional downpour for the price. The only problem with a one-piece is sizing. If you have larger shoulders than waist and hip (this exclude ragdoll and RC90), the suit may be a bit big in the mid-section.

For those of you who ride in the rain a lot, do yourself and your family a favor... BUY a GOOD rain suit!!!

The cheap crap out there will bother you everytime... trust me on this one! (or don't and cry me a river later!)

MIke, yeah... this is Kahuna's way of helping the community from the Sky!!! RIP Kahuna

Got my nelson riggs (XR-3) today.Good timing too.Going to rain in the morning.Without riding in the wet(yet)this may be the best rainsuit I have ever put on.Even has some CE padding/armor? at the shoulders/elbows.
I've always rode in the rain...now I'm almost looking forward to it.

rain suits

Has anyone tried Frog Toggs rain suits? I just got one because I heard that they were fabulous. I haven't had a chance to try it yet but it was reasonably priced and the quality seems fabulous. I'd appreciate any advice from people who have experience riding in rain...I'm a real novice...just got my license last year. Thanks!

I've got a Frog Togg and really like it. It's about four years old, never leaked, folds up really small, and doesn't make you sweat. Pretty amazing material if you've ever seen the test they do with it.

I have Frog Toggs and I'm very happy with them. They fold up small and are very light. The best thing about them is that they breathe. I had one of those vinyl rainsuits and I felt like I was in a plastic bag. I think I read somewhere that Frog Toggs are made of Tyvec, the house vapor barrier that allows the wood structure to let water vapor out, but no liquid water in.
