    It is strange but here in Spain we have bad weather too.
    I would like to buy a combo (trouser and jacket) for bad weather, waterproof and warm. You are the experts. What products do you use? and where could i purchase it?

    Ridgeline do a great range of products.

    Pintail trousers are superb and I like all their jackets.

    I use and like my Arktis made coat and trousers. Country Covers sell a great olive green colored waterproof jacket made by Arktis: http://www.countrycovers.co.uk/products/13/waterproof-smockparka
    I also use the Aktis made waterproof trousers: http://www.countrycovers.co.uk/products/306/waterproof-falkland-trousers.
    I do not get sweaty shooting FT in this gear up to temperatures around 20 Celsius, does not restrict movement. The trousers are easy to get on and worn over some jeans. Great quality, very durable, breathable and does not lose waterproofing.

    You may also find used and new Arktis smocks on ebay but usually only in military camo colors. Make sure you buy the waterproof version (if you need that). Easy to recognize because they have a black inner liner. The same model coat is also made without waterproof liner and somewhat cheaper.

    You could always try mine and Mr.Blobbys approach, build yourself up with a vigorous training / eating schedule and then the cold cant get through the relaxed mussel!

    I`d be gutted if I were in Spain and it were cold!

    Rab summit batura.

    -10 for non working wear
    -15 if you are working

    Most of the time you need nothing more than a t-shirt underneath

    Anything warmer isn't water resistant as it will be designed for where rain never falls
