Rain Skirt:

If you are like me and find rain pants too hot and restrictive to walk in you may find a rain skirt or kilt will keep your lower body from the knees up much drier and more comfortable. You can buy one from various suppliers such as I did (http://www.theultralighthiker.com/rain-kilt/) or you can make your own. Here’s a useful Instructable on how to make your own. http://www.instructables.com/id/Rain-Kilt-Skirt-for-Hiking/  See also: http://www.theultralighthiker.com/south-coast-track-fiordland-nz-waitutu-to-westies/
