The problem (for me) with rain gear is that I'm never using it unless it's in the summer, and even then... this stuff doesn't breath. It's designed to propel rain, after all.
So after wearing it for an hour, in mid-80's temps, I'm just as wet with sweat underneath as I would be had I chose to not put the rain gear on to begin with. In fact - I would've most likely been more comfortable not even wearing it, and no wetter than I would've been had I not worn it.
And for all of the talk about waterproof shoes... yeah, if you're a dew sweeper on a summer morning walking the fairways. But the performance goes out the window with those $200 Footjoys when you walk in ankle-deep heavy wet rough or step in a puddle.
I do believe in rain gloves, however. Best wet-weather invention ever.
And... best summer high heat/humidity glove you can wear if you sweat, like I do anyway. I do have to rinse them out when I get home, otherwise they smell awful when the sweat dries.
But man... I've saved a lot of money over the years wearing a rain glove in place of a regular leather glove during the hot summer months. Those things last forever, if taken care of.
