    Aerostich or Rallye Jacket and Jeans?

    Not decided on what to wear for the holiday.


    Aerostich - great for protecting from the unpredictable weather BUT completely crap for hot weather.

    Rallye 2 jacket and jeans - should be better for the hot weather ... not sure how uncomfortable it will be when it rains


    What are people wearing?


    Also .. what gloves do you wear in the rain? My waterproof gloves are Winter gloves so I am not taking them. Just planning to use my aerostich gloves in the rain, as they are cheap and old.

    Bike Wear

    I'm taking a pair of HG Toureg bike trousers that have a long zip with mesh behind on each side and zip off lower leg. A Teknic Mesh jacket and waterproofs to go over jacket and trousers. I've also bought a Shark Evoline Helmet to use instead of my Arai Tour X. So fingers crossed.

    I got big black plastic hand guards to keet the rain off my gloves. They seem to work pretty well. Long as you don't stop. 1200GS
    I am taking my tosser suit but have never had it in the rain so don't know how waterproof it is. Any tosser suited people out there who can comment?
    But the most important thing I am bringing is a heated Jacket. never leave home without it.

    I've been following the 10 day weather forecast and the way it looks at the moment is cool and wet early, then getting warmer and dryer later. There seems to be a chance of thunderstorms throughout. I realise that this is of no help whatsoever in choosing your clothing
    I think winter gear and heated jackets would likely be overkill.
    I've ridden in mountain thunderstorms before and whatever you wear, you'll eventually end up soaked after an hour in a serious downpour. Fortunately you can dry out quickly without freezing too.

    HG Tuareg pants too!
    HG waterproof-armoured jacket.
    Full condom type 1 piece waterproofs for bad downpours, not pretty but effective.
    2 visors, clear & dark.
    2 pairs of gloves! If it's raining I put my winter gloves on then I can use the dry pair the following day.
