What is a good brand of rain overpants? I currently have a First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket and would like to get a pair of overpants for when it rains.

HT Pants

I second the coment about First Gear HT pants, they do a very nice job.
Try them on over your pants don't guess, I wear a 36 and I bought a 34.
Less than $200, not bad.

Ditto on the First Gear HT overpants. They fit well with the Kilimanjaro.

Spent many miles in rain and snow flurries with these on - stayed warm and dry.

On warmer days when I don't wear the HT's, I have a pair of First Gear rain pants that always stay in the panniers.

I've had a pair of Marmot Zip Rain pants for over four years now and I love them. I bought them for riding ($99) but I use them all the time - riding, skiing, golfing, shoveling snow, standing in the rain at my daughters soccer game last weekend. They're light and easy to pack and with the zip side they're easy to put on over my leathers and boots. I also wear them under my leathers when its cold. I thought water would get in the zipped sides, but I've done about a thousand miles of riding in the rain with them and I always stay dry.

Here's a link to the newer version - only $89:

rain pants

I use a Dry Rider. My pants are a bib and come about halfway up your torso. They work. I road into work in a downpour the other day and my cloths were completely dry.

I use a pair of North Face wind pants ove my leather riding pants. They are water proof, wind proof and have an elastisized ankle to keep wind and water out. For less than $100cdn they are great. Dave
