WM foulies are pretty decent
I have several mix-n-match sets. Big Bang for Buck when on sale and WM is always having sale on them. Their Coastal Cruiser line (Third Reef) is on sale now.Their Offshore Line is good too.
Gil, Slam, Henri LLyod, Musto, etc. they're also good. I have Gil and Henri Llyod stuff.
Things to look for:
- Good Long sleeves with rain cuffs
- Self Draining pockets
- Good Articulated Hood that doesn't chafe your next or limit your visibility
- lots of reflective stuff
- Long Jacket tails that don't ride up when you bend over
- Weather flap over zipper
- Easy pull zippers with big zipper tabs
- Synch-able Storm collar
Other options are to use REI/EMS rain breathable clothing. Pro/Cons of this, but if you already have them, could do in a pinch with proper layering.
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
