Field Test: Best Rain Gear for this Year

Field Test: Best Rain Gear for this Year

Since we hunters are known to spend hours in the open, it's a given that we require comfortable, durable attire. While a little rain can never deter a truly hardcore hunter from taking to the treestand, soggy clothes chilled to brisk temperatures make for less-than-desirable hunting conditions. Luckily, there is a multitude of apparel options for the extreme weather hunter designed for the sole purpose of keeping you dry — and they look good too.


We picked up four of the best hunting rain suits on the market and closely examined each one with the help of our new intern Lisa. Since simply poking, prodding and stretching the gear wasn't enough, and the dry, arid summer at our home office didn't allow for much actual testing via Mother Nature's liquid refreshment, we grabbed a hose and a bucket and made it rain. Check out the results.
