Waterproof Rain Suit for under the seat

You know it makes sense in Scotland.

Already in less that 15 rides on the bike (748S, Biposto with single seat cowl), I have been caught out in 2 hail storms, driving rain, torrential rain, slight rain, drizzle as well as a healthy mix of cloudy sun, sunny, sunny cloud, sunny rain, rainy sun. etc etc etc.

SO

Anyone store a rain-suit under the seat.

I hear the Held 6910 Monsun or Alpinestars El Nino (RIDE Mag Test) are the ones to get.

Thoughts please.

Thanks.

I think you'd be lucky to find a suit that fits under the seat.

Maybe one that folds down into it's own pack you can wear round your waist, like a bum bag, is a better idea?

I have one of those 20 Regatta waterproof and (a-hem) breathable stuff-coats.

It does fit under the seat (just) and at least it's warm when you get it out
