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.

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.

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