Wet Weather Gear

Post  Jimcoleman on Wed 06 May 2015, 9:31 pm

After a lot of mucking about and a serious amount of time being uncomfortable. And a lot of research on the interwebs i finally found what i was looking for ( i hope )  Frogg Toggs 100% water proof, Breathable and to date warm and comfortable. Sadly the only place i could buy them was Revzilla and it was delivered with in 5 days:  Cost $239 Aussie

Hi Vis Kikker Jacket -




Water proof zips and 3 water proof pockets one in sleeve and the front


Neoprene cuffs


adjustable waste to keep that nasty water out


Got a hood so when ya mates ducati breaks down your head stays dry 



Sealed seams and soft liner - very comfy

Pants 




 
Legs that open up to just below the Knee with sealed zips



zippered waste




Folds up nice and small

I`ve been using this one for about 9yrs now.

It is an absolute pain in the arse to put on and take off, but I only ever use it for long trips, but I think its awesome, and they`re on special at the moment for under $100

Its also very good in winter on long trips, as it acts as a windbreaker.

JC is too lazy to take his boots off in a ditch beside the road in monsoonal rain to get into normal one piecers.

I've been using the Jacket version of that for 4 or 5 years since my Nordic4 lost it's ability to keep the water out but was still good other than that.

I've had the quilted version of the pants for over 10 years, love them in the cold but they're too hot in warmer weather

I bought a one piece rjays suit,  absolute prick of a thing to get on and off, plus the experience of wallowing in my testicle sweat for long periods of time is not something i ever want to do again, and based on that experience you can have the one piece suits

Jim, I think I found the jacket but which pants did you get as there looks like there are 3 different styles on Revzilla ?

Unlike ducati's his little KTM no matter how broken, leaking fluids or major electrical issues always makes it home

Your right, and as I said, they are a pain in the arse to put on and take off. But they`re not designed to go to the shops on.

They are a long distance apparel. But to each their own, and as you say,I will keep them as my number one form of wet weather control on long wet or cold trips.

A bit of an update on the frogg toggs i have worn the jacket over my leather jacket a couple times now and its great it keeps me warm. On the down side a couple of mates have made comments like any mail for me or the human highlighter, still waiting for a wet weekend for the wet test

Why wait for rain, when you can wear them while washing the bike...and get someone to turn the hose on you?

Or lend them to your local nursing home for a few days to use on their " special " residents .....................if the moisture doesn't come out , it definitely won't get in
