Gortex gear

8 posts in this topic

I am sick of getting stuck out in the cold in this climate. I really should face the fact that Minnesota's springs will never be decent. I need to buy some rain gear. I would like to get some nice gortex gear, but don't think it is worth $200. What do you all think is the best gear at the best price? Thanks, I hope the weather gets nice soon. AJ

Spend the $$$. Get a parka & bib set of Cabela's Guidewear. It's worth it.

If you don't want to spend alot of money, a good value is the Columbia McNaughy...Mcauny, something like that, they use their version of gortex and also have the neoprene cuffs. The cabela's gear is also good.

Someone else had recommended Frogg Toggs also. I see those aren't Gortex, so are they really breathable? My problem is inseam length. The Guide Series says the tall size pants have a 33" inseam? That's tall?? I have a 36" inseam! Does anyone know of other brands with the longer inseam lengths?

I bought some by Stearns that are not Goretex but are very breathable. I got the jacket and bibs for 90 regularly 160. It fits me great and I too have a 36 inch inseam.

Cabelas Guide Wear is the best. They are worth the money. I have a set that is ten years old. They have seen major thunderstorms and keep you dry in the rain going over 50 MPH.

They are not just for rain. I wear the bids a lot instead of carrying extra pants on those cold mornings. If you own a Lund they will keep you dry when you travel. grin.gif

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
