waterproof hunting garments

Recommended Posts

What is the best, bone-dry, hunting garments? I've used Hodgeman's and Browning GoreTex garments and have been totally soaked. The only GoreTex that works are my Rocky Mountain boots.

I have Columbia when the still used Gore-tex and with their Omni-tech and have had no problems. Also good luck with Cabela's Gore-Tex.

If your Gore-tex gear leaked I would return to the manufacturer for warranty. I did have one Gore-tex coat that failed after 12 years, but Columbia replaced it at no charge.

I have had good luck with Dry Plus. Got a pair of Gander Mountain Dry Plus pants when they went out of the catalog order business, and they are still keeping me dry. I have been through several pairs of Goretex along the way, and have generally not been all that impressed with it. For the amount of leakage and problems I and my friends have experienced with Goretex, in my opinion it is overpriced and highly overrated. At least Cabelas keeps replacing the stuff without squawking!

I have to say the columbia omni tech is the best. I have a jacket & pants for fishing, and have been covered by waves for a few hours nonstop on Winnie, and remained totally dry. I just bought the new Quickloader Quad parka and bibs for waterfowl. I haven't got to try them yet, but if they are anything like my rain gear, I'll be warm and dry and sleeping in my blind.
Thing about buying stuff from Cabela's, is they never give you a hassle on returns. I had a pair of hunting boots that were 2 years old and pretty beat up from pheasant hunting. They started to tear by the laces, and cabelas said they should last longer than that, and gave me my money back. Always pays to ask.

    • And they still come out with that product! 🙃
    • I ran my last set of hankook dynapro ATM tires for 94,000 and wasn't at the 3/32 wear mark. Just wanted to get a new set before I started grad school. 40k on my current set without issues. I rotated mine every 7500 miles. I have a friend who got 103,000 out of his set. I know people will call BS but I have no reason to lie and no incentive. Both were on half ton chev trucks and I took mine down some super sketchy farm roads that were previously flooded and some flooded logging roads. It's the only tire I'll buy and their fairly affordable. Also a good alignment goes a long ways in the longevity of tires
    • So..............when do pitcher's and catcher's report to spring training?
    • Wine, rum and Woodford 🙄
    • Do they drink Wine while cooking like our ladies?  😋
    • I just put on a set of Falken Wildpeak ATW3 before hunting season and have been impressed so far. The only problem is I don’t have anything to compare against because they replaced the factory tires on my pickup that were 6 years old. I wanted a little more aggressive tire than the factory tires and these seemed to fit that description. I only put about 7-8k miles on my pickup a year so it’s going to take a while to find out for sure how they are in the wrong run but I am happy so far and the price on these tires was great. 
    • I guarantee they are all hand made. 50 lbs of dipping chocolate 10 lbs of white chocolate, mass quantities of sugar, coconut and fondant. Then 13 women put in 8 hours of mixing, rolling, dipping and trimming. Each family has some of the centers mixed ahead of time because they need to cool and set overnight.
    • check out the smith lift it is expensive but they work.
    • Thanks again.  Now the issue is how do you tell someone that the ideas she has are wrong.  She has never accepted advice from me.  Maybe I should have one of you guys contact her.  No, actually I wouldn't do that to anyone.
    • anyone find a lighter alternative to the ice castle tables? the thing can be a PITA to move and align
