I have some and they do keep you dry. They are also really easy to take with you if you're worried about getting caught out in the rain. They come with a little bag you just shove them in. Mine are very loose fitting but they sure aren't made for looks. Overall I'd say they get the job done, they're cheap and it's a great alternative to having more expensive waterproof gear.

I wore a set when I rode to Indy last year when the hurricane passed through. They worked great and they breathe. They are susceptible to melting if they touch your pipes but frogg toggs sells heat shields that you can apply yourself.


Ill believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.

Coleman had some of the Pro Action ones in stock last time I was there if you wanted to see them in person. It has been a couple months though so you might want to call first so you don't waste your time.

I got caught out in some snow around Thurmont with textile/mesh pants back in November.. I threw the rain pants on over my gear and found out that they can keep you kinda warm too. It can get chilly when you're riding with wet (regular) gear for longer periods of time. (..of course not riding in mesh when it's below freezing can help too...)

What he said, especially about the breathing. It rained a lot at Indy so we walked around in rain suits. The guys with the regular plastic ones were really sweating. I was worried that it wouldn't seal well but it worked out great.


BECAUSE I GET OFF ON IT!

I ride pretty much everyday and I used a pair for a while. After about a year of wearing them I did notice that when they got soaked in a heavy rain, water would make it through. I am sure the combination of use, wind, and environmental stuff that got on it the gear slowly lost its ability to keep water out.

But when it worked, it worked VERY well.

I have a set and love them! Easy on and easy off and easily stored in a tank bag.

Like Hughtwg said.

They work great, BREATHE, and can be packed away very tightly. First rain gear that I've worn that didn't feel like a "sauna" suit. ..but stay away from hot pipes...it'll melt a big hole in them instantly. They're very reasonably priced as well.

Looks like they work great at keeping you dry when it's sunny out...

They are worth every penny. Get them in black, I made the mistake of getting them in yellow thinking I would be more visible. They look bad in yellow. Work great otherwise.
