"Rain Gear Suggestions"

All,

Most of my hunts have been archery, or first rifle in Colorado, High Desert in Idaho etc , so raingear has not been a necessity- usually.

I've recently bought some tags for N Idaho in 10A in late October, early November and my sense is I will need a good set. Other than the Kuiu and Sitka - which are expensive and size challenged for athletic, wide shoulders and full seat in legs, it creates a problem for me. I've worked out for years.

First Lite is good stuff from what I've red here. Has anyone used the King's Camo XKG line?

Thanks for your time

OLDHORNHUNTER,

Thank you for the recommendation , I actually saw this a couple hours ago prior to reading your post. Your recommendation motivated me.

I'm a bigger guy 38" and 54" chest so I'm on the bubble in jacket and probably closer to 3xl in pants if wearing over other gear. Very excited toget them so I hope they fit. Pants should though my sense is they might be huge in the waist but they are adjustable.

After reading several reviews this appears to be very comparable to Kuiu.

Any experience with the brand?

I hunted with a guy this week who had a Kuiu coat, and the zipper sucked
He had nothing but problems with his brand new coat...

I used SYLO raingear last year and loved it, comes up on Camofire pretty often. Quiet, light, and has "sticky" rubber placed in the waistband to keep them in place when they get wet. I have purchased some of their early season pant and shirts also. Good product!

SKRE gear is quite popular here either. You can't go wrong with them

I have a set from First Lite and had to use it during the Colorado 1st season last year. I worked very well.

I have had some MT050 Goretex I've used for 12 years, including Mid nov in 10a for whitey's.

Goretex works great if treated properly. Also fairly tough as long as you don't back into hot stove like me. It's not real light in the MT050, but that's because they add a short "fuzz' to quiet it. Also that fuzz can hold a lot of the little round stickers I find up there in clear cuts.

Down here in SW Idaho, I carry the very light 6-8oz per piece, of Space Rain gear from cabelas. 100% waterproof and always in my pack. Rarely need because it rarely rains, because mid-oct on it more likely to snow.

Just got back from a hunt on Kodiak Island. Helly Hansen gear - end of discussion. It's breathable, lighter weight than I had expected, and the Bering Sea fishermen wear it. If you're expecting truly nasty weather, it's an incredibly easy decision in my opinion.
