How to stay dry for cheap
Adam and I are riding to Denver in Sept. to visit our close buddy Matt. I’ve been researching how to stay dry for cheap. What I’ve come up with so far are these two items.
Stearns rain suit from walmart.
- bought it for $20 from walmart in Cherry Hill
- used it yesterday to ride back and forth to work in the rain… stayed bone dry. It was perfect
- pretty heavy / thick material. not flimsy at all. it didn’t blow around at all. too thick to blow around.
- I bought a large and it fits nice and snug overtop all my work clothes
- it snaps tight around your wrists and ankles

Seal Line – 60Liter – Storm Sack
- completely waterproof. They make more rugged bags, but I think the “storm sack” is perfect.
- I haven’t bought this yet. But I most likely am. Unless I can find something better.
- 60 Liters is pretty damn big. I looked at one in a hiking store last night.
- It’s big enough to fit my sleeping bag, clothes, and bunch of other shit i dont ever want getting wet.
- I guess this shit is made for kayakers? But seems like a good solution for motorcycle camping.
- It’ll fit well tied down to the back of my cycle rack.
- $35 online for the 60 Liter
- Link to Seal Line Bag here.
Let me know if you guys have any better solutions for staying dry for cheap…

Adam and I did this trip end of Sept 2012. This doesn’t account for any of the backroads we took. But it gives an overall idea of the locations we hit.
