Not being smart but drying the saddle before you sit on it makes a massive difference, I learnt thru bitter experience
I carry a towel in the backbox for that purpose, and lay it on the seat before putting the cover on at night.
Works well.

got the motrax bottoms today, so looking forward to monsoon weather to try them out, the heavier the better. They look decent and feel strong

10.50 stg for bottoms & 3.75 eur delivered with addresspal, how could you go wrong.

2 x [email protected] bottoms, which used to be good, but are shit. And also richa rain warrior bottoms, bottom velcro straps fell off and they leak as bad as the [email protected] ( rich warrior jack et is excellent , but bottoms are muck ).








Looking at Alpinestars hurricane bottoms or maybe Lindstrand bottoms or else Oxford Rainseal. The oxford are cheapest at 25/30e but the other 2 are around 50 euro.

anyone using any of the above 3 ?




Seal the crotch yourself with Aquasure
, its for curing leaks on fishing waders, have used it myself, just try be tidy when applying it, i used a masking type tape on oxford rain seal or whatever they are called. they were about the best of those cheap pull ups.
