What are those rubber / soft plastic looking rain coats people are wearing?

Any brands to check?

Thanks

Got a standard Elka one from The Great Divide for 40 quid during the summer sale - didn't get used until a couple weeks ago but has saved me a few times now - great coat

That was the look I was going for. Are they really non-breathable?

what do you think?

It's like wearing a thick plastic bag, fine so long as you dont need to walk (e.g sat fishing)

bought one last year. Took a bit of getting used to as it was rubberised cotton and quite rigid but looked awesome.
