Foul Weather Gear - Consumer or Marine?

I've been looking into foul weather gear and have checked out both the marine vendors like Henri-Lloyd & Gill as well has higher-end consumer products like Columbia. What are the benefits of paying the higher marine prices for an average daysailor over gear like Columbia's IBEX rainsuit? With a layer of fleece underneath you'd stay dry and warm on a cool rainy day right?

Columbia IBEX Rainsuit

Interested in your thoughts.
