I finally got sandwiched between two storm systems coming back from Ohio 3 weeks ago. I had outrun one system clear across Ohio and Pa then between Haggarstown and Frederick Md I got sandwiched. I stopped on the side of the road (since all the bridges were full of cruisers trying to hide from it) and donned my 10 buck walmart special 2 pc rainsuit. It poured like I haven't seen in years. As long as I can see, I'll ride but there is a point where it becomes plain dangerous but I don't think it was that bad despite the number of cars pulling off the road. I didn't want to pull over and become a target. I was pretty amazed at how dry it kept my head and body but I forgot to tie the wraparounds at my boots and the pantlegs shredded up to the calves. Otherwise, it did pretty well and VERY well for 10 bucks. I'm going to buy another set next time I'm in their store.
