I have the original black with the reflective closure.
They have introduced a reflective pair that shines up in-car headlights. Ideally I don’t plan to be out riding if it’s that dark but on dull days the light grey will show up better than my current black, in combination with the other hi viz garments.
The weather is so changeable in an hour this will be a good addition to your wardrobe. These are great if you are likely to get caught in a light shower and as they are wind proof it keeps your legs that bit warmer.
Available from Amazon and some ebay sellers.
If you live in the UK, welcome to the country of wet weather.
I discovered these by chance as it goes after my very wide cob became too wide for normal trousers! The waterproofs on the market currently do not have any stretch where one needs it to. You can buy the Rambo-cotton-lined-full-leg-chaps. These allow you contact with the saddle, but are padded and simply too warm for us.
Rainlegs fill in that gap in the market. Originally designed for cyclists, they are available in six colours and five sizes. Black, white, pure white, grey, hi viz yellow and camouflage.
I have seen them in use for show jumping and on the hunting field.
They can be purchased via Amazon, who stock two colours currently
Or from Rainlegs directly.
