I use this pullover mainly for fly fishing when I'm expecting a tough bushwack to the river or when I plan on getting bloody meat fishing in the salt. It is the softer PVC stretch material Grundens uses that is also lined with a very light micro fleece material. Though it's only a waist jacket, I got to wondering how it would do as a hunting rain jacket. It won't dry as fast as unlined PVC, but it's durable, quiet, 100% waterproof, has a generous hood and isn't as clammy as straight PVC. I might give it a go for spring bear first, but wonder if anyone else has given this material a go in the field? Maybe in conjunction with waders float hunting?
