    Winter/Rain Gear

    Hey Guys, Finaly sold my truck and I'll be picking a bike up sometime in the next week or so... Anyways, this is going to be my only mode of transportation.

    Looks like this winters going to be a wet one so I'm looking for advice on Rain/Cold wheather gear. Being a student I have a limited budget.

    Recomendations for Jackets, Riding pants & Gloves? I figure I'll probably go buy a two piece rainsuit (yellow ) to go over the gear But I'd like gear that will keep me warm and be able to withstand light rain without the additional rainsuit...

    Any info is aprciated guys!@ - Where the Island Comes to Play!

    Aerostich Roadcrafter or Darien. If you get a pair of light rainpants from MEC to
    wear under the Roadcrafter, you have no fear of the dreaded wet crotch

    Otherwise, they're good up to a heavy downpour. Goretex, armored, lots
    of convenient pockets, whatever colours you want, custom sized, about the
    same price as good leathers.

    What's not to like?

    Coming soon
    I've got a pair of black rain pants from canadian tire for around $20.
    It is pretty thin, almost like the windbreaker pants.
    I also use it when it is cold out.
    Also put some stuff on the inside of your face shield so it won't fog up.
