    lightweight packable raingear

    I need to upgrade my raingear and was wondering what everyone else uses. I'd be looking for something light, packable, and quiet that could go over my puffy jacket when needed.

    I have been using the Cabela's Space Rain pants and jacket. It has held up very well even for is weight. I think both the pants and jacket weigh in at around 16oz and they pack very small.. I have used panchos and frogtoggs but really like the Cabela's set.

    I have the C4E torrent jacket, and I am pretty happy with it so far. It is pretty light. It is definetely quiet. I don't really ever wear rain gear bottoms, but I do pack a pair of Frogg Togg bottoms if it gets bad enough. I don't seem to mind the wet pants. I just make sure and wear the gators to keep the water from wicking up the pants from the ground cover.

    The Kryptek Poseidon stuff is good as well.

    +1 on the Poseidon. Not as quiet as I would like but its hard to find rain gear that is.

    Marmot Super Mica jacket - 6.5 ounces and Marmot PreCip pants - 10 ounces. Don't know what season you're looking for, but coupled with a puffy - this combo is invincible. You should be able to pair up for less than $100 if you watch for some good sales. Best 20 degrees and warmer raingear I've found.

    Thanks guys. The weight and the price of the Marmot is nice, but I think I would like something camo. I want something light and packable but I would also like to use it treestand hunting if needed so camp is definetley needed.

    Any other options out there?

    I hunt in western Washington where it rains a lot. I swear by the Russell APX rain gear. In my opinion it is the quietest, lightest, and toughest gear I have used and I have used many. I'm on my 4 th season with it now and it doesn't show much sign of wear. I wear it for just about anything I do outside in the winter (hunting, fishing, working around the house).

    For the money I think the Cabela's stuff is the best unless you live somewhere like Washington or Alaska that gets a crap load of rain. Then I might buy the high dollar stuff. I live in Colorado and the Cabela's stuff does just fine.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.
