    Now Jake, you're not looking at it realistically. If you do 20 hunts a year that's only $45 a hunt.

          Thats crazy BRWNBR , No freaking way I would pay $900 for a set of rain gear. I know there are some serious Sitka Gear users out there, but I have to honestly say that this company has come out with the most overpriced gear I have ever seen, and IMO ..........it just aint worth it! Unless of course you have lots of money to waste and enjoy doing so.

            I am an avid snowboarder and snowmachiner and I really like Sitka gear. Thier gear reminds me more of what i buy for snowboarding and has alot of things that it is next to impossiable to find on other hunting jackets. I like that they have under arm vents, it sucks haveing a waterproof jacket on while hiking out goat meat in the rain and not having any ventialtion. not to mention thier jackets actually have hoods and are super quite which is a big advantage to me because i am a bow hunter. But i have the same problem, that price, man its hard to bring myself to spend that much on a jacket for hunting.

                  The sad thing is they'll probably sell 15,000 sets of the raingear the first week it comes out!!!

                    And I thought the Sitka Gear Nimbus jacket for $349 at Army Navy in Anchorage was out there.... Don't the folks at Sitka Gear know we're in a recession...?

                        Were you trying to buy directly from Sitka? If so, that's half of the problem.

                          The pot bellied, gray haired "good 'ol boy sheep hunters" I see pictures of on the web with a 40inch plus ram on the top of a mountain (I still wonder how those guys get up there). The one he needed to get to fill his Grand Slam to impress all the other good ol boys back home.

                          I guess I better watch it with the "gray haired ol boy" comments. I'll be turning 50 in the sheep mountains next august :eek:

                            Big Fan

                            I am a big fan of Sitka gear, but $900 for rain gear or any sort of outerwear is absolutely nuts. I am sure they'll get the same feedback from their market segment.

                              Their isn't a piece of rain gear on this planet worth $900, I could buy enough Impertech to last me 2 lifetimes with that kind of money.
