I work in the rain all day. No way to avoid it. I'm soaked every day, so...
In the low cost models, the Radiation Alert Inspector model seems to have a lot of fans. I also believe you could get good service from an Radex 1706
(English version menus and instruction book). The old civil defense (CD) detectors are quite decent but they must be calibrated.
Note: There are a *lot* of new brand names in the detector business since Fukushima and many of these new detectors are simply junk.
In the more expensive brands, you find NDS and Ludlum, etc. I use the NDS ND-2RPC and a handful of CD detectors.
If you must work in the rain, consider a 2-piece rainsuit and waterproof boots. Motorcycle riding gear is durable and might work for you. If I
recall correctly, radiation has been detected in rain at California, Idaho, Minnesota Ohio, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
