    I'm thinking about trying the Frogg toggs, seems to be really light weight and pretty compact. Pretty inexpensive aswell and have a olive green that looks pretty good.

    Don't waste your money. Years ago I tried them out because of weight but after just a couple of hours in a drizzle and wet vegetation, I was soaked.

    Can anybody tell me if the russell outdoors stuff is being phased out? I am having trouble finding it online, their website says they no longer sell from the site but the links to amazon and such have only certain items and then those don't have any choice in pattern or anything.

    I've used the Cabela's MT050 gore-tex rain gear for the past 6-7 years. I have worn it in some downpours and it has performed well at keeping me dry. It is fairly quiet also. It is probably not as light weight as some other brands, but it keeps me dry.

    The Cabelas Space Rain stuff was in sale last weekend. Not sure if it still is. I picked up a set to replace the one I've have for 5 years. It's good stuff but 5 years is hard on it.

    Arwaterfowler:
    It was on sale and I picked up the jacket. Seems like it will work very well. I'll find out in about 5 weeks!

    I have heard that Russell is getting out of the outdoor clothing lines, but there still seems to be a fair amount of it around at various independent retailers. If you google it and pick through the results, you'll probably find what you're looking for.

    I am running the Outdoor Research Transonic jacket for my ultralight raingear this year.
