    I am required to wear fluorescent orange or yellow rain gear with ANSI class 3 reflective striping(Public Works, Transportation) The 2 sets I've used were both great at keeping me highly visible, day and night. What it didn't do well was keep me dry. I've seen high visibility rain gear online using a Gore-Tex membrane but they are out of the price range my boss allows for rain gear. Has anyone used any ANSI 3 rain gear that kept them dry for $200 or less?

    Look at galls.com they have a big selection, company geared toward police/fire/ems, but if they're good enough for heroes surely good enough for other professionals too...

    Common now, it never rains in Washington State?

    At least it never makes it through the moss on my back!

    carhartt makes a great rain suit that is more like a carhartt material than a rain suit material and it breaths well so its comfortable all day and keeps you dry. I've had mine for a few years and it works great.
