Rain Gear Recommendation?

What do you guys wear for rain gear? Need to commute with my bike to school for HOV purposes. Can't find anything decent online with good reviews.

I rode in rain a while back and didn't seem to get wet with my perforated leather jacket. Only thighs got wet, so I'm wondering if I should just stick to some pants.

Thanks for your input, MH.

You can get a rain oversuit from cycle gear for $20ish, covers ankle to wrist to neck. Fits over jacket/jeans/backpack. Normal gloves and boots will get wet but you will stay dry.

I have been using Fieldsheer rain gear for a about 5 years now.
I have used it on the TAT (off road trail from NC to Oregon), commuting, etc..

Is about $50 (less at some places) a set.....well worth the money. Last about 2 years, well the pants, the Jackets last MUCH longer. Better fit than FrogToggs.

Just my 2 cents worth.


ETA:
$39.99....a set

One-piece suits are most suitable for heavy rain. Of course, rain sets are good too, but suits protect better.
I have something with propper reviews here best motorcycle rain suit, including explanations and recommendations.

best rain gear I've had was from Tour Master, though I think everything I've had experience with has been discontinued in favor of newer stuff by now. I've had marginal experience with the 1-piece over-suit, but I love the 3/4 length touring jacket (I think it was in the Transition series) I've got coupled with a set of over-pants.

I find it funny that he dredged up and responded to a question/thread from over five years ago.

For what it's worth, i'll update it another post. Been commuting on a 28 mile trek daily, and I have been using the "packable" ( i.e. folds itself into a nice pouch) Magellan outdoors lightweight rain jacket, and seperate pants. I think each one was about 20.00, and I have no complaints. Ive stayed dry. Long in the leg, and arms. If not raining, but COLD, I don these before i put on my heavier gear, and it keeps me warm, as a windbreaker of sorts. Could there be better? Sure, but it would be heavier.. anyways, nice and light, and works well.

I've looked all over my bike and I can't find the fkucing rain gear! I wanted to see if I got more torque if I dropped a tooth.
