DIY Rainlegs

I think many cyclists are familiar with Rainlegs, which are lightweight water and wind resistant panels that cover the thighs to keep your pants dry in the rain. For cyclists, they’re perfect adjuncts to fenders.

“khyungyokpo” in Seattle gives his step-by-step instructions for Ghetto-style rainlegs made from a $16 pair of rubberized rainpants in this Flickr photoset.


Props to Bike Hugger, who has some extra notes and tips from the ghetto rainlegs designer himself.

    This photoset seems to be gone. Does anyone know where I could find it?
