    Rain Gear

    What is everyone using for rain gear?

    I do lots of RTU's and get rained on a lot.

    I need something thats hard to cut or rip and waterproof.

    They make rain bibs(carhartt and others) I keep them in the van and slide them over my work clothes. Over that just a good solid rain jacket, you could go the cheap route so if it gets torn up it's no biggie but I have a carhartt one that ran about $50 dollars with reinforced elbows.

    If it's an extended period on one unit, you could go for a pop up cover that would shield you and the work area.

    I bet somebody in Washington or Oregon would have it down.

    I have some pvc rain gear that keeps me dry but doesn't breathe. I avoid working in the rain whenever possible.

    I wear this very light weight jacket that breathes I forget the name. Wal-Mart has it for like 30 bucks. Pvc type material for pants only because I've yet to buy better. I was in the rain 8 hrs yesterday. Poured all day but I was dry underneath. I typically don't work in the rain but wasn't doing anything that had my tools involved. Did a couple hundred filters as part of a PM

    Cool. Thanks for the info.

    I have to work in the rain unless the office can find me inside work.

    Carhart bib and jacket is the way to go. I too have to work in the rain frequently. Not an option to "wait it out" sometimes. I kind of like it cause it weeds out the candya$$es.
