Family Rain Gear Question

I recently got married and “inherited” 3 teenage boys from my wife’s late husband.
They have gear but need durable rain gear.
Now our needs are a bit unique.
1. It has to be cheap. Rainwear for 3 boys will add up, no $400 stuff.
2. It needs to be durable. My boys were adopted from Hungary and 2 have serious attention issues as a result of that or genetics. Saying “just teach them to be careful ” won’t work. It’s a struggle not to forget gloves when it’s below zero.
So I’m thinking of Helly Hansen non-breathable stuff for our hunting trips when we will be sitting a lot OR bushwacking in thick brush. I’ll try to scrounge up thrift store/hand me down WPB stuff for more active activities like hiking. Plan is to layer these over fleece since teenage guys will inevitably get damp under any rain gear.
Any ideas for durable and probably non breathable rain gear that is cheaper then Helly Hensen?
