"so yes bare legs and sandals.
Definitely agree with this for day long riding in wet conditions. I own SPD sandals for this reason. :-)
If the rain is very heavy you will get wet anyway, one way or another there will be a leak
I disagree with…"
"Well the last ones I listed have all of that. Except the comfortable seat. But that is what your seat and your bike pants are for.
Having padded rainproof cycling pants wouldn't be practical sensible. These are OVERPANTs, made…"
"Why do they need to be cycling specific?
I use these cheapies but goodies just fine. Seam sealed but not breathable, very packable. 100% dry even in torrential rain. I combine with waterproof shoes and I can stay dry and be presentable…"

"My understanding and my brief googling is that almost all bicycle 'dynamos' are AC.An AC producing "dynamo" is a just simpler and more efficient to make use and maintain. At those low wattages it is simple, cheap and…"
"Dabba: "I don't know where you got your button battery info from. I looked for the battery details and couldn't find any."
It is literally in the third line of the specifications in the link YOU provided.:
"So a $4 LED 3000 lumens light and battery doesn't cut the mustard? :-)
Comments like this make me wonder whether you have ever ridden a bicycle at night before.
