What type of Rain Gear do you use?

It seems like every year we go through rain gear. They always seem to rip in the under arm area and the crotch areas. We buy pretty good ones from a local building supply warehouse. Anyone use and special type they can recommend to me?

what do you mean by rain gear? And when do you use it? Just curious. I know that sometimes we work in the rain during landscaping projects but we hardly ever wear any rain gear.

Hey tiedeman,
We use it during fall clean up season. And sometimes even spring clean season. What I mean by rain gear is the jacket and pants.
The fall is good for alot of rain and sometimes we find ourselves working in it. You know as I do in our business the weather can vary greatly. And being that the show must go on sometimes you find your self working in the elements. Travis

true..usually during the winter, spring and fall months we run into a lot of weather as well with clean ups and snow removal. We just use a triplex jacket and that pretty much keeps us dry. Pants wise...well kind of just grin and bear it.

Grundens, used all the time when I was at sea. Commercial fishermen all have them or Helly Hansons. Cost near 200. 4 years ago. Heavy duty material. Rivited pockets ect. can be repaired same as an innertube you can patch if needed. Hadn't needed them mowin or cleanin thou.

Where we live it rains enough that you need to keep dry at least most of the time. Heavy duty raingear that's nice is Helly Hanson however the hood doesn't detach. Viking raingear has underarm zips which are well worth finding in any brand.
Being tough is one thing but getting a fungus is another altogether.
Cheap yellow **** doesn't last, not worth replacing every 3 weeks.

I haven't been to Alberta for 10 or so years, but Maple Ridge is super nice, it's sure grown.
