 My lightweight rainsuit is Cabela's. I think the name was DryPlus PacLite. Another good option is Marmot.

I have this nylon pant/jacket combo from Walmart for a about $20, that has been awesome for hot weather. But then again, I've had to spray it down with Campdry every year for it to work.

The one thing I've noticed, is that the baggier the better. It seems like the added airflow keeps you cooler.

Both Cabelas Dry-plus and BPS 100mph gear are first class rain gear. I own both, but my Cabelas suit is not the PacLite, but lighter than the Guide series or whatever it's called that's like the 100mph.

 You can make any rainsuit better by washing and drying with Granger's Performance Waterproofer. It really does work. Because of saltwater and fish slime I have to clean mine often and this stuff makes it better than new.

 They make several different levels and i have one of the cheapest ones and one of the better ones and i like both. They range from $20 a set to up around $100 i think. I have three sets of 100MPH and love them to death. Had a zipper go bad on one of the 100MPH Parka jackets that i had for almost a year and took it back to BPS for repair and they gave me a brand new $240 parka on the spot and i did not even have the reciept. That is service in anybody's book.

   Thanks for the replies from Pounce  5/3/2012 7:14:42 AM

 The basic fact is some guys fish a lot. They fish in all kinds of temperature in the rain etc. I feel that you should have a range of rainwear, light to warm or even very warm. Unless, you're very lucky in where you live and fish, you'll not get away w/ one jacket.
I had a Barbour fishing jacket( oil cotton ). That Barbour was worth a raincoat and a sweater in the cool weather. For summer, you'd roast inside that thing.
