"My own shell is an inexpensive Frogg Togs rain shell which came as part of a rain suit. The only gripe I have with it is that's it's rather easy to rip it"

"Looks like showespass breaks it down - https://www.showerspass.com/pages/how-choose-best-waterproof-cycling-jacket Anyway, point is you get a lot of value (comfortable temp range) going for the fancier fabrics. Definitely spend some money (up…"

"For the old one, hit it with some spray. http://amzn.to/2yrOWEs  Not sure what fabric you've got, but you usually just need to spray on and toss in the dryer. There's also seam tape out there. You can use it as 'disposable'…"

"When I  came home soaked this  spring I decided to get a new waterproof/breathable.  All of the  products are similar in that the waterproof property is fragile. If you  don't wash it with the  right detergents and…"

"I have to assume that large men simply don't cycle, as there are very few safety yellow rain jackets in 2XL. I'm looking at the Showers Pass Refuge, and have had no luck in finding one in the largest size. I've been looking for a…"

"How is the sizing on the Shower Pass? Does it run small?"

"Great to hear. Thanks! During the research I also noticed that the company seems like they actually care about biking - donating some profits to a bunch of bicycle organizations in Oregon for example. They are also all-weather cyclists themselves -…"

"I am with you on that! I do wear a safety vest most of the time while riding. In daylight, if I'm wearing a light colored shirt I might leave the vest in my bag now and then - but I wear the vest at night and any time I'm wearing dark…"

"It's nice - and I really like this post!  I have trouble with rain gear as well.  I don't like black because it's bike ninja territory.  Do you wear a safety vest?"

"Thanks everyone! Tony's Rain Shell 2017 is indeed a democracy, so I went with a Showers Pass. Specifically this one which seemed crazy on sale: https://www.showerspass.com/collections/mens-jackets/products/mens-amsterdam-jacket I've…"

Geoffrey Harding replied to Tony Adams's discussion Rain Gear: Recommend a Shell?
"I also love Showers Pass. I tried two different brands before getting a Showers Pass jacket and I’m happy with it. This will be my 3rd year using it and I also use the TX wash. I bought a pair of their rain pants and I am equally pleased."

"I've been using Frogg Toggs for a while now. https://www.froggtoggs.com/ I can't remember where I bought them, and which model.  It's just a jacket and pants, with a hood.  I got the extra large size and I've worn it…"

Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer.  When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help.  You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg

Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business. I will definitely have to drop in. So is your bike a Schwinn then? I am a bit disappointed its not Nasty's Cycles but the real story is very good in its own right.

Does that say 'Nasty's Cycle' or 'Hasty's Cycle' on your icon pic? Or none of the above?

Hey Tony, what's the best way for me to get in touch to set up a coffee/beer get together?

Thanks,
Ethan
