Going to be moving from the DC area to an entirely different Washington! If anyone lives around Seattle/Tacoma who likes to ride with others, let me know, I do not know anyone in the area who rides and want to change that! Specifically I'm moving to Steilacoom in Pierce County, if you're nearby let me know.

You will need a good rainsuit. I prefer a two piece suit. Flexibility (top, bottom or both) and MUCH easier to don.

My suit fits over my kevlar mesh gear, as the rain liner (on the jacket, at least) is useless, as it channels water into your gloves. If you can put your rain mitts on before your jacket and get things closed up properly, you are a better person than I. That is the only way to keep the rain out of your gloves. So I go with the high quality rainsuit. I don't need the top if I am wearing my non-mesh coat, as it has proven itself worthy in downpours. That coat has a nylon hood in the collar that can be removed to go over your head before your helmet. That keeps the rain off the back third of your neck.

Buy quality, and buy in a store where you can try them on with your gear on.

Quality pays for itself with rain gear.

(I don't know why they sell black ones. It's like a deathwish.)

And O.M.G.! Olympic Nat'l Park! A zillion dirt roads to explore and see if you can find your way home (he he he). Don't forget your GPS receiver...(well, phone, howadays)
