I had an Elite II, and have a Pintail Smock. The Elite was overkill and a right pain to get on and off, being quite long. I’m not sure the Pintail would stand up to all day in the rain, and can get warm on hill walks.Interesting - I literally told the shop owner "I need something that will keep me dry when I'm working hard outdoors without getting all sweaty and it doesn't need to be warm"
I wouldn’t dismiss Ridgeline, but I think you need to suit the product to your needs. There is a Classic Jacket that might be an option. The Paramo does run warm, but has pit zips that I definitely use if I’m moving about a lot.
