If its rain and under 50F, wool pullover. If its rain above 50F, fleece under a bdu shirt. If its over 80F, no special clothes.

Haha mine are not specialty. Lots of them I get from goodwill so I don't feel bad when I tear it up. Fist time out with a Patagonia wool shirt I ripped the back out on some briars. Ever since then I keep it nice, cheap, and most importantly stuff my wife will not rip my head off over. Cheers fellas

Embrace the suck huh?
Sounds like something a marine would say.

Were you a marine? You were a marine, weren't you? Come on... admit it.

I pretty much always wear a pair of Columbia pants that are water "resistant", and even though it doesn't fit in with the style of bushcraft I keep a marmot precip rolled up in my pack. And for those rare times we dip below 30ish and its going to be wet weather I step into my columbia bibs, basically wool overalls. They will have you struggling not to sweat even at 25 degrees, but when I found them at ross for 20 bucks I just couldnt pass them up :D

I usually have a USGI Army poncho as my rain gear, its not perfect but it covers everything and it doubles as a tarp or shelter so its less stuff to pack.
"Well, crap I left it in the other pack." Words of a bushcraft gear junkie.
