My father recently returned from a trip to Newfoundland and he was hunting Moose, Caribou and Black Bear. The last 5 days of his hunt was wet, cool weather with rocky terrain. He wore his UA rain pants and his Marmot Precip Jacket the entire time during those 5 days and he was dry (inside and outside) and not a tear on either of the pieces. He was never in storm conditions so I can't say how either peice would perform but he was in some wet swampy area and rocky terrain.
I'm trying to decide which rain gear to get for myself as I will be doing a Western Big Game hunt and a Newfoundland Big Game hunt in the near future and in the next few years I will be heading out to Alaska to do one big game hunt.
I know HH Impertechs seems to be the prefered choice in Alaska but I'm thinking I have time to before I'll be in Alaska so do I really need to get the Impertechs now??? I would rather have a new rainsuit when that day comes. What are your thoughts on the Marmot Precip Rain Suit and the UnderArmour Rain suits? Are they tough enough for rough terrain, do they breath reasonably well for a rainsuit? Will they hold out the rain on a heavy rainfall?
