I've been a contractor for many years. One of my workers told me that rain suits are not to work in but to get out of the rain. FWIW He also wore a T shirt that said "hard work never killed anybody, but I don't want to be it's first victim"

Probably Frogg Toggs

Jesus, your avatar freaks me out....

Oh, btw....I've always used a rain coat with the pants, but it has to be pouring. Dodging the raindrops is better in my opinion.

I have a Frogg Toggs actual jacket, and it isn't very breathable. I used it in the woods and it lasted a couple of months. Got a Helly Hansen jacket and never looked back. They have some at Bass Pro

Go in cabela's and get your size. Google your choice and order online. Not sure if cabela's sells either brand. Try backpacker and massey's to get your size for helly Hanson or arcteryx.

What they said. Look into the stuff offshore fishermen and sailors use. It's more expensive, but it's serious shite designed for harsh conditions where you're wet all the time.

Nope. I looked for matching HH pants last week, and they do not have the jacket or pants
