Cold, wet and windy hard to beat 100 mph. My cool and wet suit is also a bps product called Bone Dry. Both are great products.

I have the H20 bibs and jacket and really like them. $200.00 for the set.

The newer black ones are way better than the blue ones.

Grundens. Great stuff. Lightweight, layer underneath for warmth.

Simms Challenger is a great bang for the buck. It has always kept me dry.

I believe the black ones are made of a different more water-proof material. I always scotch-gaurded my blue one, especially on the seams.

I've had the BPS Pro Qualifier stuff for about 5 years now. It's worked out really well for me. Reasonable light weight and definitely blocks out the wind and water. Durable and not too hot.

I have Gill and like it a lot, just found a place that had them 50% off and bought another jacket. They had limited sizes by the time I bought the jacket two weeks ago. Incredible price though at 50% off.

my vote is for cabelas guidewear….my suit is 15 years old and never leaked...al I've ever done is wash it couple times with Nikwax to keep water beading up on it....

+ 1 on the h20 hard to beat for the price. Guide wear is about the most expensive suite I would buy.
No matter what you buy stay out in it your gonna get a little wet. Water finds a way.

I bought the old style H2O a few years ago. First thing I did is hang them in shop and spray two coats of the tent sealer from Academy camping section, allowing to dry between coats. I’ve used them many times and fished all day in the rain in several tournaments and I don’t have any complaints. Just sweat some if it’s not very cold. They would probably be hot in midsummer but in our heat I enjoy cooling from a shower. If it sets in all day in the summer I just use frog tog bibs and jacket.
