I've always been a fan of Goretex waterproofing, but again it's pricey. To be honest with you I use frogg toggs stuff. I wouldn't say that it's durable if you're going to be stomping through the brush, but if you're looking for something just to wear while sitting on stand it's pretty cheap, light weight, and quiet. I've worn my chest high fishing waders before(not real quiet) and a frogg togg jacket. They run large as it is, but get a size or two bigger and you wear it right over whatever insulating layers you want, take it off if the rain stops.
For hunting in the rain, I'm a big fan of getting a gortex hat with a wide brim. I use a gortex boonie hat. I actually have 2, 1 camo 1 orange. They've been one of my better investments. IMO hoods are no good and interfere with your hearing, a baseball cap is useless because your neck will be soaking wet and all the water runs down inside your jacket.
