    My favorites are my Timberline pants, and my 90% jacket.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Jackets:
    Kryptek Dalibor II when I'll use a hood on my outer layer a lot. It's a heavy softshell but very well designed great pockets, hood & cuffs
    Sitka Mountain Jacket when I don't need the hood. I REALLY wish there was a hooded Mountain Jacket

    Pants:
    Kryptek Dalibor II pants for colder hunts, Sitka Ascent pants for warmer hunts

    Raingear:
    I have not had any of these out in downpours yet but bought them for AK hunts I have planned. Around home I'm using Helly Hansen Impertech when it's raining so I don't put barb wire holes in the expensive stuff crossing fences. I don't usually have to hike fast enough around home to need breathable rain gear I just slow down. I got the good raingear bought at very large discounts by being patient. I got 2 jackets for AK so one can have a chance to dry while I wear the other. I have used these items glassing in snow and wind and they block it well.

    Kuiu Yukon pants These fit better for hiking than the other brands I tried, others were to baggy on me
    FL SEAK jacket Only downside to this jacket is the sleeves are a bit tight and it's a little noisy
    Sitka Cloudburst jacket Great fit, maybe slightly less noisy than the SEAK. More breathable but I'm not sure if it's as tough.

    I agree. Crispi fit me the best.
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    Boots I like the Salomon 4D GTX for when a stiff boot isn't necessary, the Kennetrek Mountain Extreme for when I want the stiff boot or there is snow. I also have a pair of insulated Cabelas Alaskan Hunter boots by Meindl that have served well for several years. I don't seem to have to much trouble with boot fit.
