Why am I still getting wet??I basically wrote this same review for the MTO50 Quiet Rain Jacket.
I purchased the jacket and pants. I honestly was impressed with how quiet they. Most Gore Tex isn’t that quiet. The jacket and pants are also comfortable. Actually more so than some Gore Tex Sitka products I’ve tried on. It would be nice if there were either cargo pockets or zippers with flaps to allow access to pants underneath. The pockets on the jacket are adequate and there’s also a nice pocket on the chest for your cell phone with a storm shield. The problem is that once the outer layer stops repelling water it goes through. This is really Gore Tex right??? It does a nice job at blocking the wind, but not rain. I hunted in some mild rain and I wasn’t any better off than other guys wearing fleece. After a couple hours (2-3) of sporadic mild to moderate rain, I was wet. Shoulders, arms, legs, chest. Basically any part of my body that took direct hits from rain drops got wet. I’m very disappointed in them in this aspect. If you got stuck in a downpour, they’d be even more worthless. I spent $379 for the jacket & pants so I could stay dry, but that didn’t happen. I sat in my stand and still got wet. The zippers on the pants should have a storm shield, but I actually didn’t notice water coming in at the zippers. My knees and thighs got soaked probably because I was sitting. This was after the first hunt with this jacket and matching pants. I then line dried them and tumble dried them in the dryer per the tag to reactivate the water repellant outer surface. I had the same problem the second time I wore them. Once the water repellant layer stops repelling water, the Gore Tex doesn’t stop all of the water from coming in. I thought Gore Tex was Gore Tex. Are there different levels of quality they have???? I’m disappointed I spent a lot of money to help me tough out hunts in poor weather only for that money to be wasted. It’s a shame because I do think the jacket and pants are comfortable and quiet. I’m not sure what to do now. There’s nothing comfortable at my local sporting goods stores and I’m concerned with ordering more products online at these prices without having a better understanding on how they’d fit, feel, and perform.
I'd rate them higher, but they are listed as 100% waterproof. I'd call them water resistant. If I only had problems with the pants or jacket, I'd say I just got a defective product. However, I had issues with both the jacket and pants.
Its a shame. I actually like the Cabela's clothing line.
Do these pants have a fly so you can "go" without pulling them down?

The short version is yes they do have a zipper. Longer version is yes they have a zipper and that the picture on the site is incorrect and we will be fixing that on the site shortly.
