Suggest rainsuit / raingear for a guy w 30-32" inseam?
I have been scouring local motorcycle stores and on-line outlets, trying to find a new rain suit.
I need a good quality set, preferably 2-piece, that is made of nylon (not PVC) and has zippers on pant legs to allow me to put the pants on while wearing boots.
My problem, apparently, is that I am too short for current global standards. I am 5’7”, 165 lbs and wear US-sized pants 34 waist with 30 inseam.
This 30” inseam is the problem, even if I allow a couple of inches more: I looked at the Tourmaster Sentinel suits, at Firstgear offerings and at the BMW Rainlock suit. All of these pants that fit my waist (typically Large or Medium) have legs that stretch well past soles of my boots! I swear, the inseams must be 36” on them!
I need to replace my current, worn-out, 2-piece rain suit that fits me well (and I absolutely love its fit and features): part of my BMW 3-Phase set. However, that one was actually numerically sized – 42S – not a generic S/M/L, like those I found offered for sale now.
So, anyone of you that use short-sized pants: can you recommend a rain suit for me?
