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

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
