Just got some new dainese textiles. Hope they work better than my previous wolf ones. Going to find out on my upcoming north Wales trip next week.

Bought an upgraded pair of RST textiles. My original ones certainly weren't waterproof. Always had a set of waterproof over trousers in the backbox.

These new ones however. Ab Fab is all I can say. Got caught out on my recent South Wales trip. Torrential rain and on my new bike I didn't have a backbox yet.
I was bone dry.

Fingers crossed for you Chew.

As it was hammering down this morning I decided to ride into work to test my new textiles on the M4 and much to my surprise I was bone dry.
Result.

Just don't bother with Buffalo. I would have been drier if I'd gone swimming :taz

I've been unlucky with the last two sets I've had but these are the dogs bollocks so far and yes buffalo are aptly named as they are shite.

Seriously though. I bought the RST blade sport. Wasn't expecting too much for 99, but they're pretty good.

You just don't like it because it's got orange bits in it.

It was either that or a polite hi vis vest.
