    I would have to agree with the Rivers West comments. It's as waterproof as it gets. Great for stand hunting but way to hot for any hiking or packing.

    Check out the Under Armour Ridge Reaper gear. I absolutely love this jacket. Has a lot of great features and its comfortable to boot.
    The beatings will continue until morale improves.

    Anyone reviewed the Sitka Kelvin jacket? Its a down jacket. I tried one on this past weekend. Felt very warm and its obviously very light being made of down. Probably not gonna hold up to a lot of wear and tear but for the weight conscious backpacking hunter it seems pretty slick if you coupled it with a lightweight set of rain gear. Any experienced thoughts on this jacket?

    Its actually filled with primloft, there great pieces light, very packable and warm. They'll last along time to I used as intended a insulation piece with a shell over them or an extra layer during stationary periods such as glassing.

    My go-to backcountry system includes Patagonia Capilene underwear, Patagonia R1 fleece pullover, Sitka 90% jacket, and REI Kimtah jacket with Event fabric.

    My Sitka 90% is the older, thicker version with the zip-off hood. I prefer it to the new, thinner model. It is my shell most of the time, until it really poors, then the REI Kimtah comes out. The Kimtah is awesome: super light, totally waterproof, and unlike any GoreTex jacket I have tried the Event fabric actually, really breathes. It doesn't have pit zips, because you don't need them. Some hunting clothing company needs to jump on the Event bandwagon, and soon.

    The R1 pullover has the highest warmth-to-thickness ratio of any garment I've tried. It is really warm, but still thin enough to easily layer. I actually have several of the pullovers and the pants. They are awesome.

    Tested my jacket this weekend on my first scout trip. It was 17* outside at 4:30a with new snow. Put the jacket on and took off on the quad.
    Windproof indeed, couldnt feel the breeze through the jacket as I was screaming down the roads to make first light
    With a base layer and that coat I was perfect at 5am when the sun broke while glassing on the side of the ridge.

    I have Arteryx and love it, but it is not camo. The recent rave reviews seem to be going for the gear from Kuiu for ultralight hunting gear.
