I live in rain country, so probably plenty. If you live in sunny South Florida, however, why do you care?!? :)

Oh yeah, and what do you want to know?

We don't tell the snowbirds....but....it rains often in the summer. They are usually short but it happens often.

What I want to know is brands, cost, and how hot are they. (it may ranin but it is still hot)

Thank you in advance for the info.

Well, my info probably won't be of any help then (it's cold & rainy here). Most riders either have an expensive (& warm) suit, or they buy the cheap vinyl over-the-clothes pants & jacket. As you can imagine, vinyl sucks in the heat because it doesn't breathe.

You might look into something in one of the micro-pourous (sp?) fabrics like gortex. In your situation, something thin and light is probably the best (as if you need me to tell you that...).

All that said, if it was me, I'd just get a set of leathers and not worry about the rain. Like you said, it's still warm.
