Warm/wet weather gear

Post by mboss » Thu Nov 26, 2015 10:13 am

Looking for some suggestions on a shirt/coat for warmer (45-50 degree) wet days in Ohio. We get a good handful of days in the upper 40's and low 50's here though November and December, often those days are wet (like this Sunday is looking). What do you guys like for wet weather that's not overly insulated and hot?

Scuba gear works well with a flotation device. lol

It's not how many breaths you have taken but how many times it has been taken away!

Has anyone noticed common sense isn't very common anymore.

Frog Toggs work for me. I also have a Bass Pro vented rain jacket with Goretex that I like when it is closer to 40 degrees.

Those Frog Toggs look like they may be the ticket. I have a patagonia windbreaker that is really nice and light but it will get shredded if I go into any kind of cover at all I think.

The lighter Frog Toggs will shred, too, mostly at the hem, but mine make it a year or two.

Trust me ! (I'm from Scotland) .....
A change of cheap ,dry.non branded clothing is best with 'Rain' !....Unless you stand still all day?...
As soon as you move ,cuffs and neck is first to give in and my boots are only waterproof if I don't walk and the higher the leg length means nothing if the trousers (pants) are below that boot length .
Have fun.
