What wet weather gear?

Hi Fellas,
Happy new year
I am thinking about investing in a set of wet weather gear for the rib.
What are you guys using for customers? One piece vs Jacket and sallopetes?
I use Helly Hansen for the sailing boat but need something more practical for the rib.
Any suggestions appreciated.
Regards
Aaron

Shorts and rash vest - or a dry suit. Nothing in between in my book.

I use one of these -http://www.polarbearsq.com/rec-product.asp?pid=721&cid=78 - but the Genisis version.

For waterproof coats and leggs try Decathalon, some great deals to have there
