Default Re: Best wet weather gear is....

was fed up of buying trousers that kept ripping so just bought a cheap pair of trousers from baca only about £6 (they did the job but not breathable) they come in 4xl (largest they had but can order bigger) as well so plenty of room to actually climb things or crouch down. got an old esb double layer jacket it can last around 3/4 of a day of heavy downpour before starting to let water through

It's not painted green is it with the two internal walls knocked out inside to make it bigger and came from east Cheshire forestry?

Dad sold our trusty old towable site cabin when we started getting the bigger portacabins with office/canteen

All the lads where gutted had gas cooker and grill and heater used to be a lovely little hot box on wet days with a 2 gallon tea pot always on a slow simmer

We sold it for £300 should have kept it.

Thought it was the right weather to revive this thread.
What are the current suggestions as to best wet weather jackets and trousers? Preferably hi viz jacket (not worried about the trouser colour) also prefer breathable for obvious reasons.
