Why don't you go to a site such as Bing.Com or one of the other search sites for best prices?

Yeah, from some brief Googling, it seems like Amazon.com kinda just wins. I was hoping people knew of some secret special discount/closeout sites specifically for this kind of thing...

I did find this, though, which is pretty awesome: http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/df52c175-372d-42a7-a5b0-9ead64042b5d/tuffo-muddy-buddy-overalls

It depends on what kind of quality you're looking for.

If you want a lightweight waterproof shell that you can layer if /when you need warmth - in other words outdoors-y gear - then I'd start with REI. Check the clearance section of their site. I have a really nice Marmot shell that retails for nearly $400 (I got it when a store was going out of business, and back when I used to do a lot more backpacking). I also have a couple of REI shells that run around $100. They aren't /as/ nice, but they're very good, and a great value.

Also check out www.campmor.com. they have a lot of closeouts and discontinued items, and therefore some good prices.
