Dear Val,

As a former Hoser, (eh!) I would recommend the lighter, more flexible rain gear since you'll be layered, wearing a PFD with harness and GPS/Radio/strobe as well as your full fingered gloves. Depending on the angle of heel, the bib (though extra padding) may give you a grand wedgie when you bend in the shoulder straps but provide some protection from green water in your boots.
Staying behind the dodger with your hood tied will keep you the warmest.
