I keep a Whirlpool dryer installed on my trailer that runs off my generator....I just keep extra clothes and dry them when needed.

The human skin serves me quite well, worst part is getting in the truck afterwards
but then I don't usually get soaked every day either.

I usually go out and play in it. Kinda like making a snow angel except in the rain.

Frogg Toggs for me, but they still don't let much air in. Haven't tried the top dollar stuff that Bass Pro sells, because they're too pricy for me.

We have employees bring their own rain wear. We do however purchase an Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero for every new employee. They cost $50 but keeps the rain off the face and from running down your neck and back. The guys rave about them. They come in most colors to match your crew and have a gore tex lining. I've had mine for 18 years and it works as good as the day I bought it.

Carhartt makes a VERY nice suit (Bout $200)and an okay suit (bout 75) I have both and use each all the time just depends on what I'm doing. The high dollar suit is very breathable also.

Bet you get a nice shock being your trailer is open and gets wet!!

I use a Boss Rain suit

Gore-Tex. Military surplus. It's more affordable and seems better built than what I've seen at Bass Pro Shops.
I have dessert camo and my son wears green camo. I think the green shows dirt less.
Danner has a boot that has Gore-Tex lining and nylon mesh pannels. I can wade in them yet my feet never get too hot. It's a big help not having to change footwear if it rains. We just throw on the coat, or if it's serious rain, we put the pants on too.
Gore-Tex is comfortable from freezing temps right up to as hot as I've seen it when raining, close to 90.
