Similar to grundens but less expensive when I bought my set are Carharts.

In Temps exceeding 65 or so degees, any of the heavier suits like Grundens are miserable and actually make doing tasks harder from their weight and lack of "giving" in the right places.

Which is exactly what the OP doesn't want, heavy and hot.
Grundens also makes lighter weight fabric gear under the label "Gage" that is durable and breathes well. I use Gore Tex lightweight gear when kayaking and the Gage jacket when forced to sit in a steady downpour.

Most of the manufacturers have more than one weight of rain gear these days...
