ProRain 3 suit packs inside an agra-supply tool tube?

Hi folks,

I searched and surprisingly didn't find an answer. I just bought a BMW ProRain 3 suit and the advertising says it packs into a small pouch. Anyone tried or know if it can be squished into a 3.75" x 12" agra-supply tool tube? Please advice,

A.

Google is your friend - Check Google Images

Have you tried entering "BMW Pro Rain 3" into the Google (or Bing) search bar?

After you enter your search phrase of choice - don't forget to check the "images" selection as well as the "web" choice.

Images often brings up links that I would probably miss otherwise & 1 picture = 1 Kilowords

Here is a link that show the PR3 stuffed in a compression sack:

Here is another set of links - Google search was "BMW ProRain 3 packed size"

I have the ProRain3 and I doubt it would fit in a 3.75" X 12" tube. Rolled up, it's slightly larger than a quart of milk. I hope that helps.

Yes, I have in fact tried searching. Thanks for a bunch of links irrelevant to my question - I didn't ask about prorain 2 or a stuff sack. I asked a very specific question and I encourage you to read my original post again.

I thought "use the search" posts went out of fashion in say 2008 or so, but guess you need to move with the times.

Thanks Mr. Gone, that really helps. It's not quite as small as I had hoped, but hey, it's gotten great reviews here so I will stick with the order.

No problem. I used the ProRain3 in a frog-strangling downpour in Michigan's upper peninsula and stayed 100% dry. The suit works for me. I have waterproof Klim stuff now so I don't wear my rainsuit any more, but I still keep it... just in case.

I think you'll be happy with it.
