Hello All-

Spring has arrived, and here in the east that means rain - lots of rain! Tune in to see how Olympia's New Horizon rain suit handled three seasons of commuting in the wet stuff!

We get a lot of rain here on the west coast, too. It's good to know that the New Horizon rain suit lives up to its claims. I have other Olympia motorcycle gear and like it.

One question...is it breathable? Is there enough venting that you don't get condensation on the inside?

I found it breathable. I showed the large vent on the back in the video - it seems to let air circulate well inside and then exhaust out without much billowing. I found it effective overall.
