I have only done this twice in about 14 years, storm grade rain in connie monsters warrants it.

I got given a pair of old North face gore tex salopettes, they were great at keeping me dry. They were a bit nippit when I got them and after a few years were too tight, so i passed them to my groundie. I now have some bergaus ones that were over £100 new, and they work fine too.

I was given a pair of Paramo ones as well which are excellent but a bit warmer.
