The best stuff I ever had was called Peter Storm, but Helly Hanson bought them out 15yrs ago. That stuff was $300 anyway.
So today everyone was getting soaked, except me. It's a pain when they want to leave just when duck huntin is getting good. My Mossy Oak, Duck Blind, Rain Jacket, $28 from Walmart worked just find. Getting a waterproof rain jacket is easy, you just need to know it's limitations. You need to take it off when you are heating up, so you don't sweat in it. Save it for rain.
But when I'm expecting a down pour and I really need to stay dry, I pull out the good stuff. Go buy a real nice rain jacket coat that you can wear to a ball game or out on the town. Mine is Gray and Black. Brand is Drift Creek Outdoors. When its raining, drab colors work fine. They might even have camo, I don't know. I don't get wet or even sweat in that Rain Jacket. You can also spray Scotch Guard on jackets and hats to help repel water - don't mess up your breathable Gortex though.
