The British decided to redesign their waterproofs when they got the new Personal Clothing System (PCS). They took of the pocket and the hood and made the new suit from thinner material to save weight and to get a smaller pack-size. The suit is light but very simple and I think that it's best as a liner under your regular outer clothing but will work as well as the outer shell but it has limitations due to the lack of hood. Anyhow, it's a good piece of kit if you don't need pockets and the hood.
