    When you have to be out in the rain, what do you wear?

    nylon mesh shorts and sleeveless t-shirt. oldest sneakers i got.

    keeps the water weight down. the sooner i get my stuff done in the rain, the sooner i can quit worrying about what to wear.

    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.

    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.

    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.
