Lagomorphic I wonder if something like a splash jacket/splash shirt or dry top like those used in kayaking and sailing would work. My dry suit is pretty lightweight (and waterproof).

Jibfreak Burton Park Crew or one of their DWR treated hoodies. 32 also has their STI line which is similar. Analog has their ATF series too.

I use a fleece top and spray water repellent on it. If you want to spend some money, Burton and many others offer sweaters and hoodies that have DWR fabric.

Around here 50 degree days are no-shirt days.
I'm not worried about tearing up arms on slush, I'm more worried about staying dry. A longsleeve base shirt would be fine if it were water resistant, but I cant seem to find one that is.

cav0011 I just wear the shevil hoodie from homeschool. It is pricey unless you get it on sale but it does the job.
