Id also go army gortex. Had mine 11 years. Paid 25 quid for coat and trousers although the trousers are a tad tight these days and I have tore them right on the bum so when it rains and there is a puddle on my chair I get a wet arse

This is worth a few minutes of your time if you want to understand waterproof ratings and breathability rates. Whilst specifically referring to skiing wear, it nevertheless can be applied to fishing scenarios.

For example, the MIL-TEC ECWCS JACKET WITH FLEECE OLIVE sold by Military 1st may look enticing, but isn't that waterproof nor is it very breathable according to the technical specifications discussed in the link I've attached.

We kitted all our club bailffs out with jackets from Military 1st. I notice they are offering a 15% Halloween discount at the moment. We also got a discount for our bulk buy.

Snugpak , as Jon said above, are a great shout for warm lightweight jackets. I saw they are also offering a new waterproof version called the Torrent but it is very new on the market I believe.

This looks a good buy for anyone who requires an XXL:

I've just bought a Fox chunk hydro jacket...............

https://www.foxint.com/home/product/...ket?c=clothing

Very impressed with the quality although it hasn't had a proper test in the rain yet.It's got good waterproof and breathable ratings and the XL is a loose fit for me so it's possible to use several layers in the winter.

It might be more than the OP wants to pay at 160rrp and most internet sites are selling them for around 130-140 but the local angling shop has them on offer at 114.99 which I was happy to pay.
