Get set for spring 2024: Rain trousers up for grabs

bicycle in rain with no mudguards

Seems like the must-have accessory for spring 2024 might be rain trousers.

Craghoppers Kiwi Slim trousers feature a Smartdry Eco water-resistant treatment to keep you dry, while a part-elasticated waist and reinforced seat adds durability. Nine pockets help with storage of other springtime essentials…like a compact umbrella. And in case the sun decides to make an appearance, the trousers include UPF 40+ sun protection and even a built-in insect repellent.

      Nothing worse than cold legs from the wet. Hopefully soon they make these more fluorescent and warm photo-reflective to make me more visible too! 34R

    Got to love Craghoppers. Not waterproof, but quick drying. Great for walking, cycling, etc. Pretty pricey but long lasting and occasionally on sale.

    Clothing is normally designed to shed water running from head to toe – but on a recumbent it runs the opposite way… Waterproof trousers would mitigate the problem; size 34R should work!
