I like my Third Reef stuff well enough. Breathable foul weather gear is, IMO, a kinda dicey proposition from the outset. It looses its waterproofness pretty quick. I like my bibs a lot more than some of the prior comments. I have been thinking of carrying a set of old fashioned carhart gear too --when it is really really wet that rubbery stuff is unbeatable.

Don't forget boots!!!
