    I'm kind of dumb and I ask dumb questions sometimes and this may be one of them. In addition to my off-road adventures I usually commute. Except I drive a cage when there's more than a 30% chance of rain. The main reason is that I just don't really know what to do with soaked rain gear when I get to work! It's not like I have a mud-room in my office or somewhere to hang a rain suit so it can dry. But it seems like if you stuffed it into a bag it'd get wet inside as well. Then, when you put it back on to go home you'd be soaked. What brilliant solutions have my fellow inmates come up with to address this?

    I ride year round, just hang 'em up in my cube to drip-dry.

    Like cris^^^ I'm a year-round NW WA rider, I hang my gear up when I get to work, by the time I leave they're dry again. Simple.

    I used to do the the same when I commuted in a Roadcrafter. I kept a towel in my bag to wipe off the suit when I arrived (so I didn't leave a trail of water in the lobby) and just hung it up on my coat hook. It was usually dry within a couple of hours.

    Occam's Razor- the simplest solution is usually the correct one. Thanks!
