To easily put on my rain pants, I slip a plastic grocery bag over my boot. The foot slides right through without getting caught up. I always have a bag since that is what I store the suit in in my saddlebag.

Kres wrote:As a bump and update to this thread -
Feildsheer has redesigned their Mach4 Mesh Jacket again. It now comes with a rain jacket that is stored in a poachers pocket at the back of the jacket. This means that you can always have a windbreaker / rain cover with you - while using a mesh jacket with CE armour in it.
They are also making this year a 600 denier overpant for $50 that can be used with their mesh pants for a rain block or extra warmth.
Kinda silly posting this stuff in Febuary - but it all looks pretty good. I've seen the jacket and will be upgrading my Mach1. $50 for a waterproof layer that won't sweat you out and is actually an abrasive protector sounds like a good deal to me.

Sounds great! ...but you're not on their payroll, are you?

$59 worth of heaven. They are light, totally waterproof, and easy to store. They work well in winter as a windblock, and in summer don't cut off all breatcability. Probably the best piece of gear I ever got!
