Not going to keep you warm by no means but as far as packability and keeping you dry to boot, you cannot beat the frogg toggs in my opinion. You can rool them up into a ball not much bigger than a ball cap.

I bought the Browning zero gravity from Sportsmans warehouse and used it in CO on my elk hunt this year. In CO it's not a matter of if you are going to rained on, but when. It downpoured one morning and I had it on and stayed 100% dry. Good stuff. Gore-tex and packable 100%

Cabelas Space Rain gear packs the smallest I've seen.

Frogg Toggs seemed loud in the store if memory serves. I'm sure they keep you dry as a bone, but they just struck me as too "crunchy". What do you think?

Colorado for rain :rolleyes: ok have a beer :darkbeer: lets get real If you want to know about rain geer talk to some one tha hunts northern OR, WA, BC Canada or AK. I hunt in rain forest Gore tex I go thru 2 pairs a day. Sitka gear that is the ticket. The rest of it is junk if you get more than a light shower. Where I hunt water proof boots they just hold water in better off in tennis shoes and wool socks.

I want something quiet but most importantly not too hot. I had some rivers west stuff it was very nice but way too warm. I dont know if Im just hot blooded or what but walking to my stand I would sweat like no other. Something light and fairly quiet and cool is what I am looking for. If the temps are cold out then I will just layer over them. Anyone else got anymore suggestions thanks

Sitka

Sitka Gear is the only raingear I have had that actually works as advertised. I hav en't worn the new stuff yet, but last years's was great and I have had 2 buddies that each spent 2 weeks in alaska hunting brown bear in the spring and now moose that are just raving about it.

SITKA sounds great. Are they noisy? As far as sweating ,I am sometimes getting more wet with raingear than without. I like MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR but they are not exactly quiet but do a fair job of staying dry.
