    Two Piece Waterproofs for Tall People ?

    Hello Folks,

    Can any one offer any advice about the best (ideally two piece) waterproofs for tall people please ?

    My faithful old Crane trousers have finally bitten the dust (cost about £20 from Aldi about 15 years ago).

    Many thanks in advance.

    If you want cheap but effective, British Army two piece goretex are decent quality, as long as you dont mind the cammo look.

    i got a Oxford 2 piece suit -about £400 total now as they are discounted -from Ghost bikes in Preston and despite a monsoon they kept me totally dry.

    Just to clarify are you wanting thin waterproofs that go over your textiles / leathers or do you want all in one textiles. If the latter there are some good deals on the Oxford kit at Sportsbike Shop at the moment.

    Hello folks,

    For clarity, I'm looking for waterproof trousers / jacket to wear over my normal riding gear. My Halvarssons gear is pretty waterproof anyway, but I like to cover up when the heavens open, to keep my ordinary gear as dry as possible.

    I'm only 6'4", and a 34" inside leg is usually OK, but I have gorilla arms so sleeve length is usually the issue !

    Regards.
