    I have their rainpants. It stretches a bit so it's more comfortable than the
    Marmot rainpants I was using before. The Novara also has a bit of reflective
    trim.

    Rain doesn't penetrate but when riding over 60F, I get a bit clammy/sweaty from the inside. I wish it had more pockets, there's only one in the back. I also wear them in the winter. With cycling tights underneath, they're good to the lowest temps in my area. New York city, down to about 10F-15F.

    I think Novara bikes and clothing are REI branding.

    Yup its a matter of branding clothing for a specific activity. Novara=cycling REI brand =hiking. I find more options buying the REI labeled stuff. YMMV

    Only Novara clothing I've ever owned was a pair of baggy shorts which I hated. Not comfortable at all.

    Novara clothing is a mixed bag. I bought some thermal riding pants that just sucked, they were terrible. But I bought a Novara jacket and absolutely love it.
