I have a 15 year old Cabelas guide wear suit, think I am going to retire it to only use when very cold, don't know about best bang for the buck but I think I will try the Gill suit.

big difference between a rain suit and one that will keep you dry and warm. I use 100MPH in the cold and other options like john175 was saying when only lightweight is needed.

I still have my old set of Frog Toggs and they still work fine for me.

Best rain suit for the money and that's what you asked for. I have to agree with Mr. Yates.

We've used the H2o from Academy Sports for several seasons and we fish tournaments from January to November and they haven't failed us yet.

You get what you pay for, don't go too cheap...I use a 100mph BassPro for winter and rain.

I just wore my new Gill suit for the first time Saturday. I am very impressed with it. The only bad part is I can't reach anything in my pants, such as keys or a pocket knife, without unzipping the jacket and bib.

I still have a BPS Pro Qualifier suit that is probably 12-13 years old and I loved it, too. I do like the Velcro on the Gill shoulder straps better than the buckles and elastic on the BPS. It's easier to adjust and get just tight enough.
