    I commute year-round in Vancouver, in all weather, and never wear a jacket for the rain. Just too hot, sweaty and flappy. It’s just water, and it washes right off. I can’t agree that a jacket is essential. And don’t even get me started on rain pants. Many cyclists around here go “full-sauna” at the merest hint of rain, so I’ll acknowledge that I might be in the minority here.

    I’ll ride with proper extended fenders in club rides (out of respect for the riders behind), but have never felt the need for anything like an ass-saver. I honestly never notice being sprayed with water from behind (even without a rain jacket).
