So after sitting in the blind in the pouring rain Saturday and Sunday I have come to the conclusion that my Cabelas rain jacket is in fact NOT waterproof.

What do you guys use? I'm in need of a new rain/wind jacket. Something than can be worn year round.

In Texas, good advice. In Alaska, it will get you killed.

I put out decoys in a rainstorm and my Simms jacket over waders kept me dry. It is not their top of the line - paid $99.00 for it on the internet but it is still high quality. I just bought a mid-weight Rivers West rain coat. It is waterproof fleece. I am going to give this a try. Saw a few posts that gave dRivers West a favorable rating.

I had some rivers west gear. Zipper died, neoprene cuffs tore. For what I paid I wasn't too happy until the warranty got me a new one. I switched to Drake eventually and over time I have replaced all my jackets with drake. I can't fault the stuff, just a bit pricier than some others.

Frog togs over the top of your other waterproof gear works well.

And can almost kill you too. I tried that after I fell in the water when it was -16 degrees. By the time I decided to go to the truck my waders were frozen from the inside out and I couldn't walk. My pants were frozen to my skin. Luckily I was fine but it could have been worse.

bite the bullet and buy some good gear. No sense in being miserable.
Eric that could have been bad.

I have proven rain gear in the saddle bags on the Harley. BUT, I ain't going outside in the freezing rain, unless it's to get me to a warm dry blind.

It's a caught 22 on rain gear. The most waterproof is not breathable. But waterproof/breathable has come along ways.

When you buy water proof gear I highly suggest it's critically seam sealed and not a brushed fabric. Bushed fabrics tend to hold water.

Usually the louder the fabric the better the DWR treatment works at Shedding water.

I use Columbia wader wideon and never have had an issue. And I've been in some monsoons at the coast

I've been in a few with mine and that jacket is the best...I used to be a huge Drake fan but the Columbia jacket is a lot more waterproof than the Drake 3-1....plus the Omni-heat (aka aluminum foil) is the warmest and lightest material I've found yet.
