You hit it on the head  - In warm weather just getting wet beats trying
to wear additional clothing. Cold weather is another story. I've found
it has to be very cold to worry about covering my legs so a
breathable/waterproof jacket with layers according to how cold it is
from coolmax shirt to expedition fleece. While moving you are generating
alot of heat but soon as you stop you really feel it. Keeping warm and
dry is a challenge but who is going to get out of the cozy tent in the
rainy A.M. to make the coffee?
