wet weather kit

Post by billinom8s » Jan 17th, '18, 22:53

Well it would seem that my kit is finally giving up the ghost. The last few trips out i've been caught in the rain and it's started to leak.

I've had my Bering kit for a good 16 years now and have had my moneys worth i reckon :)): :)):

So does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations of kit?

warm, dry, comfy, dry, warm and dry please. :)):

Rukka if I still rode through the winter. It's how I imagine being back in the womb.

I've got Dainese Gortex and there's nothing wrong with it but I'd buy laminate next time and Rukka is the best. Gortex is good, it works, but feels clammy when it does rain because the waterproof layer is next to the skin so you feel wet even though you're not.

A mate of mine swears by the one-piece oversuit he bought for £15 in Lidl (or Aldi, I forget which), totally waterproof and a fraction of the cost you’d pay for anything comparable from a bike shop.

Ask Kinkypimp, but Klim is meant to be pretty hard to beat
