What to do on a rainy day? Test rain gear!

The 'hood's tent-like properties keep the rider dry, even in blowing rain.
I've been product testing and writing a review of a rain cape from Cleverhood.  Although it's not a bike specific product it definitely has some bike friendly features.  Here I am testing it a few weeks ago in a strong wind.  Today, it finally rained (imagine that in Arizona!) so I tested it this morning for waterproofness (is that actually a word?).  Combined with a stylish pair of Wellies, it's pretty good!  Very New England-y.  Did I mention that the Cleverhood is American made in Providence, Rhode Island?
And the hood stays in place!
Look for my full review soon on www.commutebybike.com

I think it will be for any climate. Lite enough for South Carolina but easy to slip over the top of a heavy coat.
