    Hi,

    Oh, I love my rain pants. Good catch! In winter I wear them over thick fleece pants and can go out for hours without getting damp at all. And absolutely essential for biking.

    I've never used deodorant, it seems I don't have the genes that make for body odor (I'm not delusional, I have asked others.) My shirts never have any smell on the underarms either. Lucky!
