Kreiga US 20 Dry Pack©Motorcyclist

1 // KRIEGA US 20 DRY PACK
Kriega's best-selling US 20 universal tail pack doesn't come with a rain cover, and it doesn't need one. The bag's waterproof lining and roll-top-closure ensure your belongings stay dry, while an innovative webbing and buckle design make the bag easy to mount and remove. An included shoulder strap allows you to wear the $139, 20-liter pack as a courier bag off the bike, making the US 20 a great option for commuters.

Rokker Revolution Waterproof Jeans©Motorcyclist

2 // ROKKER REVOLUTION WATERPROOF JEANS
Wait, waterproof jeans? Yep, you read that right. The Revolution jeans from Rokker are hewn entirely from Schoeller Denim-Dynatec fabric (a blend of denim and Dynatec, a tear-, wear-, and heat-resistant textile) and backed by a "c-change" membrane that's waterproof and breathable. The Revolutions incorporate D3O armor at the hips and knees and are cut to fit like Levis 501s. They're fantastic in so many ways except one: price. At $549, they're eye-wateringly expensive. therokkercompany.com
