I am looking for suggestions for Quiet rain gear for a september bear hunt and Maine and archery seasons here in pa. I am not looking to spend over 300 on rain gear that gets used once or twice a season! Thanks in advance you guys are the best!

i was at cabelas and was astonished at the prices on the better/ quieter stuff some was 175 for each top and bottom.

it seems as if the cheaper stuff is either plastic rain poncho style fabric. I have also bought rain gear in the past that repelled water for the first couple times I wore it then the next year it was totally useless!

Rivers West products are excellent. I always used Gore Tex up until last season and bought the Ambush jacket and a pair pants and bibs. This stuff is tough and well made and I hunted in pouring rain and stayed dry. Shyda's stocks some, and you want to buy this new and keep receipt because they have a lifetime warranty. Good luck!

Someone a while ago was telling me to look at an army surplus store for what the military wears for rain gear. They said its really made to last for years and really quiet. Does anyone have any idea what this type of rain gear would be called that I could find online?

I have Cabela's MT050 and really like it. Cannot remember the price, but with some of their sales and coupons, you may be able to get a set for under $300.

I bought a cabelas brand rain jacket a few years ago, I'll have to look to see what its called, but it is quiet and does great at repelling water. However , It does not breathe at all so I've had problems with sweating and getting cold when I do alot of walking. I think I paid around $80 for it.

about 200 smakers. I got my set at dicks sporting goods on sale for around $135. very nice set and I stay dry and comfy. It is a little warm when sitting in a warm rain though, around 60 or below is very nice. They also make gloves to match this set.


I also see they came out with this as well. I may have to go take a look at this set.

angus I wish I would have read your post last night. I just ordered some Medalist Max Packable Rain Jacket and pants from Cableas out of the bargain cave flyer. I couldn't find one review on the internet about it, but I took the chance. I could always return it. I really like this whitewater stuff your talking about. I was at dicks last week and all they had for rain gear was the Field and Stream stuff i've had in the past.

On the site there is a "Where to buy" button. There are a ton of bow shops/hunting stores in PA that carry White Water gear. You could always check it out and compare to teh stuff you ordered.
