I ride MTB, I want some rain gear. This may sound dumb I don't want full length pants and jacket, just a short sleve jacket and shorts will do.

I live in FT Lauderdale, when it rains it's still 95 degrees. I could care less if my legs and arms get wet, just want my core and butt dry... Did a search on here did not find much.

Riding in the rain is great, no one is ever in the park.

BTW no clothing section on mtbr?

Thanks

I live in Western Oregon and it rains a lot, although it's usually 40-60 instead of 95. The problem is that no matter how breathable a jacket it it's going to bake you in that kind of heat. I don't put a jacket on when I go out in 60 degree rain. I do take a dry shirt and the jacket in my camelbak in case the temp drops, but at 60 I'm riding in a long-sleeve microfiber shirt. If I do put my jacket on, I'll be dripping sweat in a couple miles. Anything above 75-80 I'd just wear a shortsleeve microfiber top, but if you want your chest/back to feel dry maybe look into a vest, although I still think it's going to cook you.

Florida in the summer is already cooking. I enjoy riding at the worst time during the day, I burn way more calories, as long as I drink tons of water I"m fine.

Never considered a vest, might work. I did find some water proof golf shorts, 80 bucks from footjoy, pricey but they may work.

I'm gonna look into the vest my only concern would be the water coming off my helmet, maybe a shower cap would work! :D
