I've got soggy knackers..!

So... It's raining...

I've got rain wear, but it would appear that there's pinhole leaks in the trousers (probably from putting them on and taking them off) around the crotch somewhere.

I'm going to put this down as being one of the problems of rubberised clothing. :(

So, the question is: Does anyone make non rubberised wet wear? Gortex or just simply better quality maybe?

There's something liberating in riding in the wet (so long as your knackers stay dry!)...
Yes, you stay dry and warm and can have a peaceful fag in the car, but it's just not the same! :D
Trust the rubber..!

I've got some Rev-it 2 piece textiles. They're the laminated outer rather than a lining so the water doesn't soak into the fabric

Going back a lot of years SB I found that when going to and from work I had a pair of waterproof leggings where the seams especially around the crotch area were "welded" rather than stitched and never had any problems with as you so eloquently put it "soggy knackers"

The seams of mine are internally taped, however, I think I've found the problem, part of the tape is loose.
What I need now is some rubber cement!

 

I still want some better waterproofs though.

Oh, I've got textiles (RST 3 piece).
They work pretty well, but there's no substitute for decent waterproofs lol

i"v found only the boiler suit type  with the diagonal zip  works,  as the zip is offline with the crotch area,💦💦
