    Question Best camo rain suit?

    I know some of you guys, like myself, will go ahead and hunt in a downpour if you get the chance. What has been the best rain suit for keeping you dry while in the stand or on the ground, aside from using a ground blind?

    Gortex....Buy a Browning Hydro Fleece or Suede jacket and pants and be done with getting wet.

    I bought some of these earlier in the year but haven't needed to try them out yet: http://www.kentuckyhunting.net/forum...ad.php?t=48503

    When it gets cold and rainy, I wear my Columbia gear.

    It has been a while since I bought my rainsuit but what ever you decide make sure it is gore tex or sympatex based. I would recommend something in a cotton twill outer shell as well.......

    Features I would consider would be zippers and buttons up the front....this acts as a double barrier for rain to penetrate due to the overlap in the design......

    I would also recommend that the pants be a suspender type ( preferably with a bib design or at least come well above the waist line) because you want something that is not binding......Nothing like trying to climb up a muddy creek bank in rain pants that are to tight.....

    Definately you want zippered legs that are flapped and button as well......

    I like a jacket that has a good hood as well......
