If this is a one-time deal; Justifying all the expense for rain gear is hard to swallow.

What Bubblehead says will work fine, great recommendations, but.......

You get what you pay for.

If you get caught in a serious blow in the rain and cold and you get will wish you had the best money can buy. Being caught at the wheel/tiller when cold and wet for hours is miserable! The achy feeling, you will have for hours. You will feel guilty if someone has to take over for you. Prepare for the night time temps. Think wind chill; the back of a P/U truck.

Layer up; bring (alot) more than you think. Hours motionless will take it's toll.
Tape or velcro(better) your sleeves to keep water out.
Wear a towel or something around your neck to keep water from dripping down.
The rubber mason gloves will work as long as you can wear something underneath as a liner.

Then again; if it's 90 degrees out, you'll love it!
