? on lightweight/breathable rain gear

Looks like another wet season on the way. This year we're going to do much of the mulch work on rainy days (when not pouring). The heavier rainsuits are just too warm and dont breathe. Was considering getting a couple of golf rainsuits with Goretex but they are a tad pricey. Sitting in the truck while its raining is not an option this year...I want a personal life this year.

Have you purchased any products along the lines of what I'm talking about and if so what did the suits cost you? thanks

Frogg Toggs are the one, I used them when I fished bass tournaments. Thet are as good as gore tex type stuff, but much lighter!
