    Default Looking for lightweight ankle length raincoat

    What's your favorite raincoat that's suitable for mild temps? I'm looking for ankle length so my legs don't get soaked.

    I've seen alot of people running around in these during wet shows.

As long as it's not a cold rainy day, it's OK for pouring rain but if it's really a cold rain, think 40's, that you have to put a heavy sweatshirt or jacket under it, you're just about SOL.

    You might do better trying to find some wind/rain pants at a sporting goods store like Dick's or Gander Mountain. I got some at Dicks a few yrs ago that weren't that expensive. Here's a pretty reasonable pair from Dick's:

    I've got one of these:

    It's well made and light weight. It's also big enough to "blouse out" in the back an cover the saddle (although the rider is not doing that).

    This is my *absolute* favorite:

    It isn't ankle length, but it falls below the knee on me (I'm only 5'5"). It is ultra-lightweight but completely windproof and waterproof.
