I have a raincoat that I bought at the Rei for like 110 bucks. It is very breethable even at a downpoor at 100% humidity and 95 degrees out side. It is well worth it I also have some pants that slide over your jeans.

Cheap raincoat and maybe pants if it's pouring.

A $27 rain suit from Wal-Mart.

You are soaked with sweat but you can mow in the pouring rain! I had to do it yesterday.

Thought a bout converting an old rider mower 'cabin' to outfit the z

Grundens Rain Gear as it is the best.
It is what Commercial Fishermen use and I use it for Fishing as well.
I have two sets one is very heavy and one is lightweight.
I typically use the lightweight for mowing.:rolleyes:

Bullet proof rubber rain gear. Heavy duty. Hoodless rain coat w/sou'wester rain hat and bib rain pants finished off with a pair of gumboots. When it rains here it usually rains for at least a couple days and usually more like a couple weeks... in a row. Spring and fall are the worst for the amount of precip and the condition of it. Cold, persistant rain for days on end. I think it finally coming to an end.

*Looked out the window, nope, still raining.

I've found that Sorel's 'Down Pour' Rain Pant/Coat are far superior over most other foul weather gear (Helly Hansen, Grundens et. al.), as they're made from breathable, washable and wicking material.
