Best rain gear
I purchased the Drake waterfowl system est, for my daughter. At the end of duck season in a small from Bass pro store. I liked it so much I had to order mine on line. I got to use it in tropical storm Beryl when over 7 inches or rain was dropped in a short time.
I can hardly wait for duck season.

I just got this jacket and I'm so impressed with the design!! The material seems very durable yet quiet. The fit is perfect. I love the hood system, the neoprene cuffs, the magnetic and elastic call pockets!!
I can't comment on how windproof and water proof it is compared to Gore-tex, but I can say it is very well made, and designed and the fit is perfect!. I guess if I had one wish, it'd be that they added from shell pockets with magnetic hold open flaps.

Used it on a recent early goose hunt in upstate New York. First morning, temp was 41', frost on the ground. I was warm & comfortable with a sweatshirt underneath. By mid morning it was about 55', light wind blowing across an open field. I took off the sweatshirt and stayed very comfortable. Second morning temp was 55', raining hard with strong east wind off Lake Champlain. Wore a sweatshirt underneath, jacket kept me dry and comfortable. Setting-up the blinds was hot work so I opened the vents on the jacket after getting in the layout blind and immediately cooled down. Jacket is waterproof and wind resistant; light, comfortable and quiet. The hood and snap collar provide good protection against blowing rain.
