Thanks for the detailed update! Can't say enough for the Deluge, fits perfectly, the eVent fabric works perfectly and the fit is actually made for motorcycling. NO PROBLEM slipping the pants over my Gaerne S12 or Forma Predators both of which are huge boots in the calf/shin area. Sure Deluge could be thinner, more packable but every time I've been stuck riding through bad weather I've arrived at camp completely dry. Also, you are correct in the multiple use department, it works for skiing and any inclement weather situation. Leaving on a 6 week dirt tour to the Grand Canyon and will be packing the Deluge as rain and final layer!
