Original Darien jacket/pants for 20 yrs, then it needed replacing. It was an easy decision. Did a ride to Duluth for a custom fitting for a Darien Lite jacket/pants. It is much less bulky than the original. With both suits the ONLY times I got some wetness is when I forgot to raise up the collar and cinch. I've been through many all day downpours with both. Because it was asked, I wear sports tights (long sleeves) under the Darien and that setup is good for 50f and above. Above 95f is hot no matter what you do. I also have a complete set of heated liners for colder weather. Always fun to get out in single digits on clear dry roads.
