Alright, looks like I might be in the need of some rain pants for bike commuting and was wondering if you all had any suggestions.

I was thinking about getting some frogg toggs and making a small slit around the calf area that I could put some velcro tape on for some ghetto style vents (don't mind if my legs get a little wet, I'd rather just not be sitting here freezing my ass off cause of the rain).

Any other thoughts?

Every pair of Frog Toggs I've ever seen were ripped to shreds, and nearly brand new, I'd never buy a pair. . .

Is that a good thing?

It is for me. Where I live now I will have to shop the internet if I want anything. I can't even get coffee beans in this town. Anyone know any good mail order coffee houses?

Their coffee looks good, but I don't need to buy 17+ pounds of expresso beans.

You could make a couch with them like Matthewski.

He stuffs couches with rice to get ready for the zombie apocalypse according to his thread on WB.

He's probably crazy enough to do it.

at 6' and 200lbs I think I'd be hard pressed to fit into some small men's pants

There is a clothing brand I saw that caters somewhat to cyclists. I was looking at their wind shells and rain shells for hiking. Can't think of the name. They seemed very light and functional. I find running clothing is only good for shorts and t-shirts. As soon as you get into training clothes for rain or cold or wind they instantly suck in terms of what they carry. I think the average cyclist consumer must be a little smarter or something than the average running consumer. Still can't think of that brand name. They didn't seem to carry any extra large sizes either. There must be fewer overweight or oversized cyclits also. I've often wondered what men over 7' tall do for bikes.

It was some european brand, like Italian or something.

Googled it. SUGOi. Maybe it's Japanese, or Japanese-Italian or something.
