OK, I need some rain pants.

I have two pair, one for use on the scooter, that are too big anyway and don't work on the bike at all, they are cut all wrong, and snag on the seat each time I get in or out of the saddle, I also have a really nice pair of Carhart rain pants, but they are from when I weighed 301lbs, I swim in them now and they are like riding with two inflated garbage bags around each leg, scratch that :D

I will most likely order from Wiggle as I have a couple of other things back ordered there. My waist is still too big at about a 42" but it is getting smaller all the time :) I don't need "Over" pants, just rain pants, any suggestions?

I'm off to go search at Wiggle.com :cool:

In large sizes?
Is that here in Japan?

Cheers!
I'm bigger than average and found a nice pair (and matching top) for myself.
A bit of hit and miss with big sizes in Japan. Sometimes you get lucky.

Found a very nice pair of shoes in my size the other day. Took me an hour of looking through the shop. Gave up on looking at style and just started looked at sizes. In the end stumbled on to some boxes in my size that had none on display.
They were very nice and half price too. I bought two pairs.

I've been using Rainlegs which I got from Wiggle.

They are easy to put on/take off and keep nearly everything dry.

I've just checked Wiggle and they seem to have only the smaller sizes in stock.
But if you can get them from elsewhere for a decent price I would go for it.

Yeah, I saw those, they looked interesting, but they are not in stock in my size.
