    rainsuits

    My trusty old rainsuit of many years has finally died. Does anyone know of a place or company to get a good one for somebody tall. I am 6'5", 36" inseam. I'm having a hard time finding anything that comes anywhere close to fitting.

    Frogg Toggs make a size big enough for Sasquatch. I'm 6'4" with 34" and the size that fits over my gear isn't the largest they make.
    Bikeless for now...but not for much longer!

    i'm 6'5" i've had the First Gear Rainman jacket and pants for 4 years and they've always worked great. I teach MSF and wear them many times a month in heavy rains all day long and they work very well.

    also, gonna move this to gear where it should see more response.

    Great rain gear for year round riding. And that's from someone riding in Seattle where it does in fact - Rain. They stow nicely and make a great windbreaker...
    Just keep em away from yer pipes... They melt like cotton candy in the rain!
    I've attached ironing board cover material to the insides of the legs.

    Frogg Togs' "Road Toad" is made for motorcycling and has reflective piping.

    I just ordered a set this morning.

    Also, they sell the heat resistant patches if your pipes are exposed to your legs.

    (My 'stich is getting too small, so I had to do something. This is the best, at the best price, that I could find.)

    You might consider something even more visible:

    Even Frog-Togs' "frog-eyes" is really only effective if reflecting headlights. This won't help you when someone is merging into your lane.

    Yeah, but.... With that snap closure, no zipper, it isn't made for riding and the wind will whip the water inside the front of that jacket and soak you at highway speeds.

    There was only one version of Frogg Toggs that was yellow, and it also was not for motorcycle riding, or I would have bought that.

    Quality raingear for motorcycle riding that is lime yellow doesn't seem to exist....
