Splash-proof pants

A stylish waterproof-breathable jacket is a cycling wardrobe staple these days, with good reason. So why not keep your lower half equally dry for a fraction of the cost?

Subtle reflective patches and adjustable cuffs make your ride a little safer and easier when Mother Nature gets nasty. $130
