    Commuting Pants

    I commute to work as often as I can but it is a slushy mess here lately. I am wondering what people can recommendt for a pair of pants to go over my docker type pants(for work) that will protect from the wet and dirt of the commute. It isn't very far so I don't want to have to change. Just be able to put em on over my work pants. Thanks.

    Well I wear a pair of Mountain Hardware side-zip rain pants for backpacking. Side-zip is key so you can get them on and off over your shoes. The problem is all the water runs down onto your shoes. If your cuffs stick out of the bottom then that gets wet too. Khakis would probably get stained. With dark jeans it's less of a problem, but I still leave a dry pair of shoes in my office.

    There is a thread in the commuter forum about the Outlier clothing. Dress/casual pants made from fancy fabric that dries fast and repels stains. Kind of spendy but if I had a short commute and had to dress up I would check them out.

    I'd change at work. 2 minutes in the bathroom is all it takes. If you really can't do that, then just get some rain pants that are long enough to completely cover your work pants. If you roll up the cuffs on your work pants, you shouldn't have to worry about any slop getting up the rain pants and onto the bottoms of your work pants.

    Water-proof work cover-alls?

    Maybe a pair of these?
