it is not a good idea to wear pvc in the sun because the light can damage it.

By that argument, rainwearseeker, you could never enjoy an ice cream or cold beer in hot weather, even though you can always buy another . . ;)

have to admit i find it rather odd why anyone would want to wear pvc rainwear in 20 degree heat, but each to their own

In the seventies and early eighties shiny vinyl raincoats we're very fashionable and the ladies did of course not only wear them on rainy days. You could also see them on warm summer days. 8-) 8-) 8-)

But one has to be aware that rainwear can suffer from sweat and sunlight. But that is of course OK. Some of us like those items to suffer once in a while. :twisted:

We have some yellow Helly Hansen rainpants that have been cut to knee length with an elastic seam down below. Worn underneath jeans or jogpants without any other underwear they make great perspiration pants. Maybe it is a good idea to wear a pair tomorrow. But be aware that they don't live very long that way - but still longer than our p-pants.
