Ryan,

For $200 you can get a Scheels Jacket and Bibs. Pretty good stuff for the money. It is not the top end gear but you are also not paying top end $$$. It is a very good value!

Frogg toggs suck! you will get wet. I was wearing a pair and got soaked just from the boat spray on a windy day. Get good bibs for the pants if you don't want a wet ***.

Ryan,
If you are on a budget check out columbia rain gear. I have a lightweight jacket with omishield and it does a great job, I wear a fleece or coat under it depeing on weather. They make omnishield pants as well. You can get these for under 250. BPS had them yesterday.

Frabil FXE stormsuit gets good reviews, I have seen decent prices on ebay for those under 500.

Good luck bud!

I was excited when I bought my first set of "good" rain gear. I was less than thrilled when it eventually started leaking thru worn spots...knees,lap,butt,then shoulders...It's great when it's new. For someone who seldom fishes in the rain,it could be "new" for a long time.

I can't see dropping big $$$ every year on raingear...Two sets of guidewear and a set of froggtoggs later,and I've gone back to vinyl. Carharrts has sturdy stuff at as decent price.

For light rain,I wear my newer guidewear (cold weather) or froggtoggs (summer) but in a deluge,the Carharrts are the only thing I'd wear.

Cabelas Guidewear - the last raingear you'll ever buy (unless you no longer fit in it...)

i have Cabelas guidewear and the Frabill FXE. both are expensive but the FXE stuff if just better. Built for fishing and quite comfortable the cabela's stuff is quite stiff. If you want a good cheap pair get frogg toggs, i have been in rain with them and i stay dry. Its not great for all day rains like the expensive suits are but in a pinch it works. That being said, if you are serious about being out in the rain the FXE is top notch.

I have a set of Cabeal's Guidewear that has served me well. It's about 7 years old now I guess. I tried on a Frabill Stormsuit and shouldn't have...I REALLY like the way it fit.

I'm strongly considering one

I trust Cabelas Gore Tex rain gear. I have three different models, two of which are very affordable.
Dont underestimate their cheaper light weight stuff. Worked beautifully for me for many years before I dropped coin on Guidewear. When you buy the lighter stuff just by large enough size that you can layer underneath.
