Ordered pants and jacket Frogg Toggs Road Toad Reflective Rain Gear. We'll see how it holds-up in the rain.

Thank you everyone for recommendations!

I know my suit came with an extra piece of material and glue just in case a hole happened.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I cut the hood off my Frogg Toggs jacket just to make it roll up a little smaller.

When I'm wearing it on the road I have a helmet on anyway, and when I'm off the bike I always carry a Minnetonka leather folding cowboy hat in the saddlebag. My head is dry either way.

Also, the hood is rolled into the collar when not needed, making the collar thick enough to push up on the back of my helmet.

I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.

I hadn't thought about doing that, but that's a great idea. The hood is essentially useless unless you want to use it once you get off of the bike.
