I accepted a position with work in Van and will be commuting to and from Kelowna quite a bit starting late august. To cut down on fuel costs (at least $350 per trip in my truck) I'm going to ride down there until it gets too chilly.
What does everybody suggest for some waterproof and or warm gear?
How "water resistant" is textile?
I'm not sure if I should just get a pair of textile pants to go with the jacket and then buy a rain suite to go over?..
So far I have found the ICON pdx waterproof overcoat. It's a little pricey but nice enough that I can wear as a normal rain jacket anyway.
Does anyone have a pair of the A* RP-5 water proof overpants?
Also is there a need for those rain booties? I have a pair of Gaerne GP boots but they are not claimed to be waterproof..
