I'm in Fl, a little more heat and humidity than you. I'm usually pretty good with my old Darien set, but it's time for replacement. Any experience with a Darien comparison wise? I've been considering the Roadcrafter lite, but this suit looks good. I'm still kind of torn regarding the water repellency / water proofing discussion. I have the impression this suit will vent better and do fine in our semi normal afternoon showers.Has anyone used a wash in waterproofing on this suit, like Nikwax? I have no problem with adding the liner or donning my FroggTogs if it's going to be an all day rain.
