I got this one:
http://www.harley-davidson.com/mcm/m...bmLocale=en_US
I thought because it was the cheapest it wouldn't work so well, but it packed up into a small ball so I gave it a shot. Rained about every day to and from Sturgis kept me dry.
My problem is vision-any glasses good in the rain?

i bought two black frog tog breathable cheapo rainsuits with gray reflective piping on close out for $52 apice from SportsmandGuide .. they didn't come with the iron on heat sheild you usually get with them . so i bought an old black leather jacket at a thrift store for $5 and cut two large patchs to sew on the lower right leg for heat shelds .. put some snowseal water proff on the leather works good.

For the money, I like Frogg Toggs. Lightweight, affordable, waterproof.

If you have gore tex and decide to wash it. Remember to air dry, do not use heat in the dryer as it will ruin the gore tex membrain

Check out the HD Gore-Tex rainsuit. I've ridden all day in the rain in it and stayed completely dry. And it's Gore-Tex so it also breathes and you don't feel like you're in a sauna.

I'm looking for some high vis. rain pants to replace the HD high vis suit I have. The seat of the pants started to leak on my last trip and I had to use some silicone caulk on them to get me through the trip. I like the high visibility but the PU coating on these pants is so thin that you can see the black outer material through little pin holes all over the inside of the pants. I paid a lot of money for this suit and it's junk. It's sure hard to find high visibility pants. I'd also like to get longer legs on the next pair of pants for a more comfortable fit.

I have bought many rain suits, but the Tour Master 2 piece rain suit is so far the best for me. I have used it for the last 12 years (every year), and sometimes 4-6 hours under heavy rain without any drop on me.
I believe I paid around $90 at the time.
Good luck on shopping!

HD Overpass works perfectly every time regardless of how heavy the rain or how many hours/days you are riding in it. Just tripped for 34 days with 28 of them in the rain in northern Canada and Alaska and stayed completely dry except for my face. Now if I could just find some goggles that will not fog up.
