Raingear-Nelson Riggs?

Looking for some new raingear? Has anybody ever used the Nelson-Riggs brand 2-pc rainsuit? I tried the Frogg's and the crotch just leaked to much for me and besides I think I looked like a marshmallow going down the road.
Would like to stay with a nylon shell for breathability.........

The ride is the objective, the destination is an excuse

I have tried the Nelson-Riggs; but I prefer the Tourmaster Sentinal 2 piece. I've ridden all day long in some pretty heavy rain and not one leak. I got mine at www.newenough.com.

Re: Raingear-Nelson Riggs?

We've got and used 2 Nelson Rigg Stormrider 2 piece suits. They've been used on both our Suzuki Boulevard and now on the K1200LT. Good value for the price. Neither my wife or I have noticed any leaks. My only gripe would be the roll up hood in the collar. It can make it difficult to turn your head with a 3/4 or full face helmet. My solution will be to remove the hood by cutting it out but I only think of it when I'm riding and notice it. The back is vented so you don't get the Michelin Man look. The actual vents are high enough up in the yoke to prevent water from going up in there. In the summer and in traffic it can get warm, but that's the nature of the beast I guess.
