Not that quiet but I don't seem to have any problems as you have seen. Found a trick that works good is one of those fluff rings that you put in the drier. I use to use big super balls but the ring works better. The down side is you have to listen to it for an hour.LOL But it does a great job. Cabelas or Bass Pro has them for about the same price. 213 for the parka and 199 for the bibs.
