I seem to get wet no matter what I buy. Cabela's stuff leak at the seams but quiet. My camo has the wind barrier in it and is somewhat rain resistant.

It's hard staying dry on rainy days, I have yet to find anything that makes a wet hunting day more comfortable...
my solution to rainy days is to just stay home and hunt when the rain stops but this practice is only since I've gotten older. :coffee:

Hunting the rut with a light misty morning is usually a prime time for success. However, I do not like to get wet anymore especially when it's cold out. :yucky:

I was looking at some of the high end cabelas stuff but have never used it.

mine is in the 150 range and isn't very good. Goretex will run 300+ but might be the answer.

Any rain gear gear usually turns into a sauna for me. But I have had some better relief with Gore Tex brands...My workboots were always Gore Tex but for some reason I bought a plain old "waterproof" pair and my feet sweat and bake in them. With Gore Tex I always had a breathable feeling.

Last year I bought a pant and jacket combo from Cabelas for the same reason, something lightweight and waterproof that I could use for both spring turkey and early bow season. I like it ok, got rained on once pretty hard and it didn't leak. They call it A.G.O. 2 piece rain suit. I see now this outfit is $120, last year only $100, and I caught it on a big sale for like $60, otherwise I would not have bought it. I've had good luck with Cabelas hunting clothes over a lot of years but they are too high priced for me anymore, only go there when there is a good sale of some kind. What I can say about buying hunting clothes from them is I had a cold weather Dry Plus and Thinsulate Revolution Fleece jacket that started leaking after 4 years of use(found my receipt) and they gave me $72 credit towards a new one-I paid $115 originally.
