RedHead Squaltex II BONE-DRY Rain Jackets for Men
For the price you won't beat this product. Kept me dry in a toad strangler up in my tree stand. The AP disappears in the coastal pine forests. Deer died looking right at me and couldn't figure out what I was.
The XLT size is perfect for my 6"5" frame. Arms are long enough. Silent while drawing the bow. The GREATEST part is the extra little fleece lined hand warmer pockets. Keep your hands out of sight and wind and rain while waiting for that buck to sneak along. No need for gloves. We'll see how long it holds up as I am outdoors 320+ days a year.

Good jacket for the price!
I purchased this jacket on a recent vacation to Gatlinburg (Sevierville, TN store). I had been planning to purchase the jacket before the trip but wanted to try it on for size, instead of buying on line. The jacket runs a little big, I am 6’, 215lbs and a large was plenty big. As far as water proof, it rained Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of my trip (over 6” total). I left my rain jacket at home so I got to break it in immediately; well I stayed “Bone-dry” the entire time. The fabric does not make much noise, so that should be good in the field.

Good Rain Jacket
Bought this jacket to keep me dry while hunting and fishing. I've used it several times and it does what it supposed to, keeps me dry. However, it is not meant to keep you warm, you will definitely need to layer well if you're wearing this when its cold out. Also I ordered a Medium and the torso fights perfectly but the sleeves are a little short. The elastic cuffs always ride up on the arms, velcro or a snap/button securing system would have been better. Other than the sleeves this was a great buy for the price.

Worth Every Penny
Purchased the jacket and bibs as a set specifically for a 10 day caribou hunt on the North Slope in Alaska. I wore them every day as my primary outer layer. Temps varied from low 30s to highs in the mid 50s with rain, snow, wind and shine all part of the mix. My inner garments never got wet and the outers garments dried extremely quickly just by hanging them in the tent overnight. Better yet, despite alder thickets, muskeg and terrains of all types they remain looking virtually new. Absolutely worth every dollar spent.
