I have bowhunted in Cabelas Space Rain and that is my choice. Put a lightweight fleece over that and its 100% silent. Even as an out layer its some of the most quiet rainwear I have used.
Unfortunately your options are limited, you'll have to sacrafice durability for sure at that price range. And when you do, you'll wind up buying another pair at $80/piece if they tear and are no longer waterproof. Then you'd have spent enough to get Rivers West.I am trying to stay around $80/piece.
Depends which model you get and what you consider ultra hot. I've hunted in 70-80 degree temps with mine and been OK. Warm...but not overbearingly hot...but it's 80 degrees...it's hot either way.Rivers West is ultra hot for hunting unless it is very cold.
I can agree with that. I also have the Space Rain gear, I prefer the Rain Suede for less noise.You guys say you've tried all of Cabela's raingear? You must not have tried their Rain Suede. I have been using it for bow and gun and it is not only completely waterproof and breatheable, but it is also very quiet. I have never had an issue with it as far as noise.
MT50 from cabelas is out of my price range and so is the Rivers West or Sitka. I am trying to stay around $80/piece.
It is tough to find rain gear that is quiet enough.
