I think I’m gonna need these tonight!

This morning was awesome!  Warm and slightly humid conditions made for a most excellent run and ride to work.  Unfortunately, the rain started just a few minutes after I got settled in at my desk, and it’s looking like the ride home tonight will be pretty soggy.

I’ve used the rain pants a few times, but this will be the jacket’s inaugural soaking!   Based on the weather forecast, I totally expected it.  In fact, I kind of thumbed my nose at the weather just because I had this new jacket!  Sure hope it meets my expectations!

God bless…..

    If you had all to do over again, which version of the Showers Pass pants would you get? It looks like you have the convertible ones.

    I’m pretty happy with these. They are the Club level, same as the jacket. They make a Touring level that’s rated a little more waterproof, but they’re considerably thicker and bulkier. These are actually bulkier than I want them to be. They don’t pack down very well & take a lot of room in my bag.

    The only real complaint I have with them is that they kind of bind at the hips while pedaling if they slip down any at all. I keep having to hike them up!

  3. I understand Tracey. My ride tonight was 40 degree with a 30-35mph wind blowing off the lake. Glad I had some warmer gear to wear tonight!

    Sounds like your pants could benefit from “Showers Pass® Suspenders.” They are compatible with the club pants. I became much more interested in heavier pants after I commuted on ice and found the O2 pants are just too delicate.
