    Default Helly Hansen Impertech

    The only place I can find Helly Hansen Impertech bibs or pants is on-line. And, the problem is no one says how much they weigh. Could someone please weigh your bibs or pants and let me know how much they are. Preferrably size large. Thank-you!

    i just got on the scale with my size large bigs and it didn't even go up a pound. went up .8 lbs. the pants are considerable lighter without all the elastic and buckles. i have the pants that are double knee and double butt, so those might be a little heavier, closer to a 1.5lbs i'd guess then. but worth their weight in gold.

    Default noisey?

    I keep hearing that these Impertech are real good rain gear. Are they the "typical" plastic-type that are pretty noisey when walking through brush? Last year I bought a Browning suit that works well, so far, but they are not light. Quiet, they are. A bit bulky, too.

    I love HH Impertech! I've had a set of pants for about 10 years that finally ripped out on me this fall. I'm going to get a new set in the spring (Sweeny's in Soldotna carrys them, but doesn't have camo). I'll probably get pants and the double layer bibs (great for wheelin I think). I wear a gor-tex jacket for my upper outer layer and it makes for a good combo.

    Default Impertech

    jklingel:

    No HH Impertech is not "typical" plastic-type material, but rather a supple, yet durable Polyurethane over Polyester material. It has been welcomed on many treks along ridges or hours with rod & reel in hand. They will take hours of drizzle, rain, or wind and not give in, plus they dry quicker than something nylon or fleece-backed.

    I like the OD green color myself; a fair color for hunting and still "acceptable" enough to wear around town or in the eco-touristy areas.

    You can normally snag a set for a good price at the Sportsmans Show in Anchorage in April if you are willing to wait. Otherwise, I know Boondocks and Sportsmans WH had the green ones last I looked.

    Default Weight

    Just went back and looked at my sheep list and my HH Impertech bibs and jacket came out to exactly 2 lbs (thats together)

    I bought mine from the sportsmans warehouse.

    I have since switched to the Marmot Precip for sheep hunting because its lighter but have been known to use the Impertech a time or two. In even teh wettest of conditions it does keep you dry. This pic was 3 days straight rain while sheep hunting.

    Default Always in my pack

    I can say HH is the one item I swear by. 7 straight days of down pours. Everyone else stayed in the tents, I went hiking kept dry and ended up getting a trophy bear. Will be buying a couple back-up pairs for the future. You can not go wrong with this product.
