    Packing is the easiest part of the game: try putting one on in monsoon conditions... at night... in an open field!

    Have you ever fallen over the guardrail; while trying to steady yourself against it?

    Try standing back up: when your rainsuit is down around your knees!

    Back in my "Dirt Bike" riding days, I discovered a very effective way to stay dry when wearing a rain suit. After a good day riding in the rain and mud, I had a long ride home in the pouring rain. My riding pals tightly wrapped duct tape around my ankles and wrists. Stayed dry all the way home. Then I learned another lesson that day. Make sure there is another person available to help un-do your waterproof get up. Unwrapping tightly wrapped, wet, slippery duct tape is next to impossable while wearing wet, rain soaked riding gloves. I pass this valuable lesson along for those who do not plan ahead any better than I.....

    Do you remember the Uncle we all seem to have; who is loud, obnoxious, inappropriate, drinks too much, and starts fights at family re-unions?

    One more tip: Pre- roll both pant legs inside out all the way up to the waist. Then you can get your shoes through the leg holes quickly an roll the rain pant legs down.
