I went with the 2 piece Frogg Togg Road Toad and was impressed with them

When I rode down to Calhoun GA last year, I was riding in pretty heavy rain the 1st three days and they kept me not only dry, but warm(windproof). I hit a long, heavy downpour in upstate NY on the same trip and they came through like a champ. They also 'breathe' decently, too. :clapper:

I went with the Road Toads, as they have a longer zipper in the leg that makes them easier to put on/take off over my heavy riding boots. Last thing you want to be doing is to have to take off your boots, to put on a rain suit when it's pi$$in out. They're great for wearing off the bike, at the end of the dayif it's still raining! The Road Toads come with their own stuff sac and compact to a pretty small size. They are sized a half size larger, so they fit well over your regular riding gear. If your riding gear is a size XL, then order a size XL.

They run around $59. Do a Google search for the cheapest price.

+1 on the Frogg Toggs. When I first saw them 3 years ago at a local ride, the vender had a coat laying in a pan of water with a rock in the middle. It was there for the whole 3 days and was dry on the inside. That sold me. I've been riding with them here in the Pacific NorthWet and have seen some very wet days, but was dry and happy under my Toggs. They pack pretty tight too, in their included stuff sack. They breathe fairly well too.

I use "Dry Ducks"; They are made by Frogg Toggs but only cost twenty bucks here at the local Sports Authority. They breath well and even during our summer down pours here I stay dry. Had to make one small mod though... The front of the coat has a flap that doesn't keep the wet out at road speeds so I duck tapedit down. The only thing is I need to replace them about every two years.


They are washable and pack very tightly. I keep a small compression sack with my dry ducks, gloves, glove inserts, water proof rain booties, two reflective vest, and a cold weather ski mask. My all weather gear bag.

In cold weather I wear a Tourmaster Saber jacket with my Frogg Togg pants. In temperate or warm weather I use the Frogg Togg jacket and pants over my leather jacket or mesh jacket. I've had mine for four years now, used them a lot and have yet to have a leak or a tear in them. These things keep you dryer than a heavy duty Helly Hanson industrial strength set. All for $40.
