The jacket is extremely light weight and paper thin but still protects you against the wind. Rain, unfortunately, gets right through if its any more than a light drizzle. I wore two long sleeve jerseys underneath during a rain storm and the top layer was completely soaked through. Would love this jacket and buy it again if it was actually waterproof.
Wore these in a storm while touring for 6 hours and my legs were still dry at the end of the day. The pants sit around your hips, which i like, i was worried I'd only find garbage bag like high waist pants, but these are pretty slim.
