    Asking another question... how many of you have raingear for hunting? What's the best?

    Rain gear is never quiet every movement makes noise, if it is raining just gut it out in the regular camo.

    Ive used Gander Mountains rain gear the past 8 years. Soft outer shell, its quiet and slightly insulated. Works great.

    Whenever I wore rain gear I have always put it on before my fleece sent loc jacket. Doesn't make noise that way and you still stay dry

    All of my camo is water proof (and quiet), so I don't have to worry about bringing two separate sets into the woods. Most regular rain gear is too noisy.

    I did a lot of research before investing money in raingear before finally selecting Rivers West. It is quiet, dry, and windproof...I can't recommend it enough. If you pay attention to their online shop (cascade direct I believe it is), you can score some great deals on it as well.

    I put a tree umbrella on 2 of my stands that way if I drive up north and it starts raining i can still hunt.

    No raingear = no noise

    Deer do not mind it at all.

    I agree some of my best hunts are in the rain. There is less hunters out and movement and scent are a little forgiving

    Yep hunting in the rain can be excellent but you have to be on top of the tracking job.
