Rain Riding Gear - Suggestions?

Doc and I were talking and I thought I might as well post it up. Does anyone use Frog Toggs for wet riding? I hear it's the way to go. I figure before picking some up I'd ask. I have a rain liner for my mesh pants and jacket and it works fairly well, but still leaks through the zipper and a few other places. Post up your thoughts! Thanks

My textile jacket has kept out some pretty decent rain, at highways speed. I use Dririder Nordic pants. They have a side entry, so there's no zip in the front. These have also held up under pressure.

Can't help you with info re: Frog Toggs, sorry.




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

Try riding naked... it works for me in the rain J/K I wear my textile with its waterproof liner and just regular pants. As long as I'm moving air keeps the water off my pants.

A riding buddy has a set, he swears by them.
On a recent trip to FLA (1150mi, 17hrs) it rained from detroit to the middle of kentucky, sometimes pretty hard. He never got wet!
They're on my short list of things to buy.

Clay uses Teknic and has never had a problem. He said he got it at Rec. Choko rain boot covers....$ 17.00 or so at Rec too.

Aerostich make 100% waterproof gear for riding. Its lined with gortex. 'the bad news is that it costs a minimum of $727 for a one-piece. I guessing that it's going to be too expensive , but here' s the link
