Sadly, those "reasonably priced" rainskirts on Amazon only go up to a 39" waist. May sound generous to some but they are a fair bit shirt if the mark for me especially on top of trousers etc.

 Looks like the 3.99 ones are exactly the same as the 10.00 ones on Amazon. The logo looks suspiciously similar even though brand names differ on all the cheapie ones.
Too little, too late, too bad......

A few weeks ago I bought two Columbia Silver Ridge long-sleeved hiking shirts and was able to use them on a recent trip to Maderia. For me, they were truly excellent. It was very hot and sunny and the shirts were so lightweight and the material was so comfortable against my skin. When I perspired they dried very quickly. I washed one by hand and that dried very fast as well. I'm a hiker who likes to wear a shirt so I believe this time that I made a really good purchase. They are still being sold on the Columbia site for 25 each.
