I seem to get wet no matter what I buy. Cabela's stuff leak at the seams but quiet. My camo has the wind barrier in it and is somewhat rain resistant.

It's hard staying dry on rainy days, I have yet to find anything that makes a wet hunting day more comfortable...
my solution to rainy days is to just stay home and hunt when the rain stops but this practice is only since I've gotten older.

Hunting the rut with a light misty morning is usually a prime time for success. However, I do not like to get wet anymore especially when it's cold out.

mine is in the 150 range and isn't very good. Goretex will run 300+ but might be the answer.

Any rain gear gear usually turns into a sauna for me. But I have had some better relief with Gore Tex brands...My workboots were always Gore Tex but for some reason I bought a plain old "waterproof" pair and my feet sweat and bake in them. With Gore Tex I always had a breathable feeling.

Last year I bought a pant and jacket combo from Cabelas for the same reason, something lightweight and waterproof that I could use for both spring turkey and early bow season. I like it ok, got rained on once pretty hard and it didn't leak. They call it A.G.O. 2 piece rain suit. I see now this outfit is $120, last year only $100, and I caught it on a big sale for like $60, otherwise I would not have bought it. I've had good luck with Cabelas hunting clothes over a lot of years but they are too high priced for me anymore, only go there when there is a good sale of some kind. What I can say about buying hunting clothes from them is I had a cold weather Dry Plus and Thinsulate Revolution Fleece jacket that started leaking after 4 years of use(found my receipt) and they gave me $72 credit towards a new one-I paid $115 originally.
