Well winter's almost over here and the snow is all melting which means tons of mud and slush around here. Just wondering if anyone has any good ideas on staying dry while riding....we all know how much it sucks getting soaked and having to ride on a cold day. I don't mind getting covered in mud but it would be great if I had some kind of waterproof suit that kept me from getting soaked

Good pair of boots, and a pair of the ARC foul weather riding pants. The pants have 2 layers, one that goes down tight over your boot and the outside layer goes over your boot. I've been in almost waste deep water and it never let a drop through them......

One downside is I had one pair rip almost 4 weeks after I bought them, rockymountainatv.com replaced them immidiately!

coveralls all the way, go to tractor supply and grab some cheap ones. When its colder than a witches titty in a brass bra i wear sweat pants, jeans and coveralls, and after riding all day i can usually walk inside wearing the jeans and not get shit all over the house. I never used to wear em, (i thought they looked retarted) but after 1 ride w em i was sold.

I'm in the same boat! :'( I picked up Thor 'Ride' pants and jacket. These did the job!! The only thing I don't like is the pockets are exposed by mesh on the inside. For the life of me I don't get it. Not a good place for the cell phone.

Now I'm on the hunt for pants that will protect me from the occasional puddle in drier weather so they don't need to be water 'proof' just not all polyester so the water goes right through fast.

cheap coveralls. the insulated one. i wear those with jeans and thermals underneth. 2 sweat shirts-1 hooded. iornclad cold weather gloves, and a bavaclava under my helmet. with riding boots.works great.but make sure you get coveralls that are a little big on you so you dont restrict your movement. 1 more thing get the set without sleaves.if you get the ones with sleves when you go to grab your bars you will pull that thing right up your arse.

i dont mean to be a dick, but is that english?also i dont think many people are going to go into deep water with a sport quad. i do alot of trail riding. even with the puddles and wet mud you realy dont get wet.

i wasn't trying to run my mouth.i apologize if i seemed like a dick, i just couldn't understand what you meant. i grew up on long island i know all to well about frozen ponds, and falling through the ice. i would never go out on a lake or a pond with my quad. hell i get nervous when we play hockey on the ice, im definitly not going to ride out there. :thumbsup:

Nice, that's exactly what I was looking for, the ones at wal-mart looked like junk.
