Each set of rain gear was tested and rated on the nine categories that matter most to anglers. At the top of the list is dry factor, which I tested by donning each set and standing in my shower for 10 minutes to simulate a downpour. Any leaks or seepage cost points. I scored breathability and movability by wearing the suits while casting heavy baits and noting how easily they allowed me to move, and their ability to release body heat. Construction was rated for how well built the gear was and how well they could stand up to the general scrapes and scratches that come with a hard day of fishing. Fit, comfort, and adjustability were judged for how well the suit fit and how easily it could be adjusted to fit different anglers. The aesthetics score is simple: how cool does each suit look? Packability was judged on how well each suit compacted to take up as little space as possible. The features score took into account added extras, such as waterproof zippers, number of pockets, removable hoods, D-rings, and the like. Finally, the value score covers how much bang you get for your buck. The highest scoring suit won the Editor's Choice. The suit with the highest value score won the Great Buy award.
