The Best Hunting Rain Gear of 2022 (2022)

Written By Chad Bryson

Rain gear is one of the most critical parts of any hunting clothing system. It’s the piece of gear that hunters don’t really consider until you are sitting in a merciless down pour reevaluating your life decisions. Nothing can be more humbling than sitting in the onslaught of mother nature’s deluge as you realize that you probably shouldn’t have skimped on your rain gear. Almost every hunter has probably had their own unique defining moment of suffering when they reach the point of investing in good rain gear. For me, that moment occurred on my first trip to Alaska. I went for two weeks as an assistant guide to see if I wanted to guide full time, and the only way to get all the unanswerable questions about guiding thoroughly answered. I got answers alright. All of them.

After two weeks of 100-percent outside living, in what at that time was considered the wettest Alaska season in history, I found that I needed to invest in quality rain gear. I wasn’t just damp, I was bone-soaked from day one of the job. From that point on, I critiqued every piece of rain gear I came across as to whether it would be “Alaska proof.” Now, quite a few years later, I still use the “Alaska Proof” system of measurement, but there are so many other applications for many other environments. So, I had to modify the system. What I consider to be “Alaska Proof” may be an infinite amount of overkill for a hunter that only deals with precipitation two or three days per hunting season. If you fall into that category, may God bless you and your sunburn. These days there are multiple manufacturers that produce quality rain gear for hunting. In fact, some would argue that there are too many options. It can be a little overwhelming. Thankfully, I’ve helped narrow down this list below to what I believe to be the best hunting rain gear for almost every application.

Things to Consider when Buying Hunting Rain Gear

When you’re choosing rain gear, consider where you’ll use it as well as how many days a year you expect to wear it. Just knowing those two things will narrow down your options considerably. For example, the rain gear I choose to wear in Alaska will see more use than the rain gear I wear in Mexico. Likewise, rain gear you wear in the Rockies might be overkill for the Southeast. Figure out what conditions you’ll hunt most, and go from there. The

As you start to expand your hunting ranges/regions, you’ll need to expand your rain gear too.

Best for Backcountry Hunts: SITKA Dew Point

SITKA

Check Price

Key Features

  • 3 Layer Gore Tex
  • Articulated elbows and knees
  • 100% polyester
  • YKK pit zips

Why It made the cut

Sitka Dew Point rain gear checks every box needed for extended backcountry hunting trips, especially when weight and space come at a premium.

Pros

  • Light weight
  • Easily packable
  • Incredibly Breathable
  • Two way side zips open all the way to the waist

Cons

  • Not durable enough for extended daily wear

Product Description

At just under 1.5 pounds the packability of the Dew Point rain system is astonishing and doesn’t take up much room in your backpack. The pocket/zipper placement in regards to wearing a backpack means that the waist belt and shoulder straps on your backpack won’t affect the use of the pockets or pit zips. And the leg side zips come all the way to the waist from the ankle cuffs for easy on/off. The Dew Point system is great for multiple day backcountry hunts if you only need something for those surprise rain storms. But it’s probably not the best option if you plan to hunt consistently wet conditions. I put this gear on just before a downpour in turkey season.

The Best Hunting Rain Gear of 2022 (2)

During turkey season, I used the Dew Point rain gear on a hunt in Georgia, and it couldn’t have worked better. It kept me plenty dry during a surprise rain storm, when the bottom fell out for a solid minute. But when the sun came back out, the Dew Point provided plenty of breathability, and I didn’t sweat my way out of it like other rain gear I’ve tried in the past. Even though this rain gear is light, it doesn’t sacrifice durability. On this same hunt, I had to maneuver through a briar thicket, and I just knew by the time I made it to the other side that the Dew Point would be ripped to shreds. Luckily, it made it through without any major wounds, and it still keeps me dry.

Best for Late Season: Stone Glacier M7

Stone Glacier

Check Price

Key Features

  • HydraShield SS Fabric Tech
  • Fleece backing on soft shell
  • Mechanical stretch
  • Dual chest pockets

Why It made The Cut

The insulated and windproof Stone Glacier M7 jacket and pants provide breathable, waterproofing capabilities for those cold, wet late season hunts.

Pros

  • Intuitive pocket designs
  • Excellent durability
  • Articulated elbows and knees
  • Keeps you plenty dry

Cons

  • Legs do not zip all the way to the ankle cuffs
  • A tad noisy

Product Description

Late season hunting can be grueling, downright cold, and unpredictable. The Stone Glacier M7 series is a testament of intuitively designed gear that’s built to endure late season huntingconditions. The fleece backing on the HyperShield Soft Shell adds insulation without adding any significant bulk. I wore a thick base layer (top and bottom) along with a puffy vest during testing. I had full range of motion to shoot my bow sitting, kneeling, and even standing. Plus, it’s plenty warm. And you can add or subtract insulation garments as the conditions change and still have full range of motion.

The Best Hunting Rain Gear of 2022 (4)

Both the pants and jacket have ventilation zippers which allow added flow during strenuous activity if needed. However, the zippers on the pants legs don’t open all the way to the ankle cuffs. They stop just below my calf, which makes it impossible to put these pants on without removing your hunting boots. However, these pants are designed to be worn as a main outer layer in lieu of your regular hunting pants. Another feature that I find critically important is the ability to access all the pockets/features of the garment while wearing a backpack. All the vent zippers, chest pockets and hand warmer pockets are easily accessible.

Like everything associated with late season, Stone Glacier built the M7 tough. Really tough. I didn’t have a shale cliff face to climb close by, so I wore my test gear walking through a briar patch for about 100 yards. Immediately following, I had my fiancé spray me with a water hose, much to her chagrin. And there were no water leaks after 15 minutes of continuous spray. This level of toughness usually comes with a tradeoff. Tough fabric usually means noisy fabric. But the M7 outer fabric is pretty damn quiet to be as durable as it is.

Most Versatile: KUIU Chugach TR

KUIU

(Video) Best Hunting Rain Gears to Buy in 2022 - Top 6 Hunting Rain Gears Review

Key Features

  • Torain Waterproof System
  • Streamlined fit
  • 4-way stretch Primeflex Nylon
  • Jacket weight: 14 ounces
  • Hook-and-loop adjustable cuffs

Why It Made The Cut

The Kuiu Chugach TR excels as a lightweight, rugged, weatherproof rain system that can handle most any hunting conditions and scenarios.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Extremely packable
  • Super comfortable shoulders in the jacket
  • Scuff guards on the instep of the pants

Cons

  • Legs do not unzip all the way to the waist of the pants

Product Description

The KUIU Chugach TR could be the “one size fits most” for hunters that want one series of rain gear to cover most of their needs. It’s an extremely versatile system that’s lightweight enough to use in the backcountry and quiet enough to use on a spot and stalk hunts. This jacket breathes well, and the pockets and zippers are placed so that you can access everything while wearing a hunting backpack. It is not as durable as some of the other gear I tested, but it isn’t designed to be. However, the Chugach TR did pass the 25 yard briar patch test followed by the water hose during turkey season. It also gave me zero issues climbing a tree and sitting in a treestand.

The Best Hunting Rain Gear of 2022 (6)

One of the more pleasant things I noticed about the Chugach TR is that the shoulders were very comfortable. Nothing felt binded in any of the usual spots. As a guy that wears a backpack close to 100 days a year, those comfortable shoulders make a difference. I wore this rain gear for half a day, with a backpack, while I scouted turkeys one day. It’s comfortable, and I barely noticed it when I layered it over my regular hunting clothes. And if you appreciate sweet camo patterns, you can get the Chugach TR in three different camo options or one solid color.

Best for Spot and Stalk: SITKA Thunderhead

SITKA

Check Price

Key Features

  • 3 layer Gore Tex
  • Brushed poly knit face
  • Weight: 25.5 ounces

Why It Made The Cut

Spot and Stalk hunting requires stealth, versatility and improvisation. The SITKA Thunderhead has silent, breathable fabric that allows you to slip into range without getting soaked in the elements or sweat.

Pros

  • Dead quiet
  • Articulated elbows and knees
  • Gusseted wrist cuffs
  • Wear as a single outer layer
  • Alaska Proof

Cons

  • Packs a little big

Product Description

The SITKA Thunderhead’s design excels at spot and stalk hunting with a few added bonuses. First and foremost, this system is quiet. Dead quiet. And it’s tough as nails. Typically you don’t get durability and silence in one set of gear. Not to mention, every single feature of the jacket and pants are easily accessed while you wear a backpack.

The Best Hunting Rain Gear of 2022 (8)

This jacket is streamlined enough to wear during archery season and provides just enough warmth that you can wear it with some of the best base layers, yet it’s big enough to get a puffy vest underneath. And the pants are cut so that I easily wore them over my regular hunting pants in an emergency. However, if I knew that my hunting day was going to be constantly wet, I could wear them with only a base layer underneath without sacrificing any of the features of my regular hunting pants. I’m thinking Alaska Moose or Pacific NorthWest Roosevelt Elk. It rains torrentially in both places. My experience usually goes: if the season is 10 days it will rain every day of my hunt. But the Thunderhead rain gear is rugged enough for anyone to wear for 10 days as their primary clothing, and you can be confident that it’ll keep you dry and silent.

Best for Treestand Hunting: Kryptek Koldo

Key Features

  • 3 layer DWR Waterproof fabric
  • Helmet compatible hood
  • Bonded laminate elbows and knees
  • Jacket weight: 1.65 pounds

Why It Made The Cut

The Kryptek Koldo rain gear provides the subtle nuance features that will keep you warm and dry during those cold, all-day treestand sits.

Pros

  • Extremely durable
  • Articulated reinforced elbows and knees
  • Backpack friendly pockets

Cons

  • Belt buckle on the pants comes unsnapped when wearing a backpack belt

Product Description

During a particular hunting trip in Missouri, it rained a lot. My hunting buddies and I had to use ATV’s to access our stands, and the first day wasn’t too muddy, but the second became much worse. By the third, the trails turned into an outright mud bog. I can’t remember what rain gear I had at the time. But I do remember that it didn’t work for any of it. The outer material ripped on tree limbs along the trail, and it didn’t have much waterproofing, if any. Long story short, it doesn’t matter how waterproof your rain gear is, if it can’t hold up to a few pricks and scratches from brush or limbs, it won’t keep you dry.

The Best Hunting Rain Gear of 2022 (10)

However, upon opening the Kryptek Koldo rain gear for this test, I immediately noticed the rugged build. In fact everything about the Koldo rain gear is tough. The welded Bemis Seam Taped Waterproof zippers and reinforced articulated elbows and knees won’t tear under pressure. And you can even cinch up the hood over your ATV helmet to prevent yourself from collecting water in your hood.

However, the hood runs really big when you aren’t wearing a helmet, but as long as you cinch it down tight, it’s more than comfortable. The super tough fabric is a bit noisy when dry but after sitting in the rain, the fabric softens and makes it plenty quiet for treestand hunts. So, whether you’re driving or trudging through limbs and brush on your way to the stand, the Kyrptek Koldo will get you there without tearing to shreds.

Best Budget: RedHead Silent Flex

(Video) Top 5 Best Hunting Jackets Lightweight, Waterproof, Comfortable Choice 2022

Key Features

  • BONE-DRY 100% tech
  • 4-way stretch fabric
  • Included small stuff sack
  • 100% Polyester

Why It Made The Cut

The RedHead Silent Flex rain gear brings comfort and performance at a price that every hunter can afford.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Packs down pretty small
  • Budget Friendly
  • Quiet

Cons

  • Legs only zip to the knee

Product Description

Maybe you’re new to hunting and not ready to make the financial commitment to purchase technical hunting rain gear. I get it. But if you’re just starting out or hunt in areas that don’t receive much rain, the RedHead Silent Flex rain gear will work just fine. This rain system was actually a pleasant surprise to test and review. It’s not super fancy, doesn’t have high tech bells and whistles, but it did pass the most critical aspect of the test. It kept me dry in the rain for over an hour. I didn’t abuse it like I did some of the other rain gear. No briar patch tests, no water hose. But it did keep me dry during a rainstorm.

The Best Hunting Rain Gear of 2022 (12)

The RedHead Silent Flex rain gear runs just under $120 for the set, which is significantly less than other options in this test, and it kept me dry. This set is also very comfortable to wear. It fits baggy to accommodate multiple sizing and layering scenarios, and the pants have a drawstring waist instead of a belt. The Legs only unzip to the knee but were remarkably easy to put on and take off over my boots despite this fact. Plus, each garment comes with its own stuff sack.

This system should also work brilliantly for younger hunters (12-14 yrs old and growing like a weed in a fertilizer farm) without parents having to mortgage the house for a set that won’t fit by the end of hunting season. Keep it simple. It only has to keep you dry for now.

FAQs

Q: How much do I need to spend on a set of rain gear?

My philosophy is to spend as much as I can afford without involving a divorce attorney. I take the amount of money I am willing to spend, then look at what is available in that price range. After doing my due diligence, I may decide that I need to spend more or less because it makes sense for my specific needs. But generally, you should expect to spend anywhere from $100-$600 depending on your needs and budget.

Q: What is the best brand of rain gear?

The best brand of rain gear is the one that works for you and your application no matter how much it costs. End of discussion. Find gear that works for you, no matter what brand it is, and use it.

Q: How long does Gore-Tex last?

I can honestly say that I have several Gore-Tex garments that vary in age. The oldest is probably pushing 20 years old. That piece is still waterproof without a doubt. Newer technology definitely breathes better but just like most things, as technology advances so does life expectancy.

(Video) Best Waterproof Hunting Jacket In 2022- Top 10 New Waterproof Hunting Jackets Review

Methodology

For this review, I included the best hunting rain gear that I’ve personally used in the field or tested myself. For the rain gear that I didn’t use while hunting, I made sure to test the durability by intentionally walking through thick briars. For the waterproofing capabilities, I then had my fiancé spray me continuously with a water hose for at least 15 minutes. Rain conditions obviously vary, but if these products can withstand a max blast from a water hose, then I considered them more than sufficient for surprise rain conditions.

Final Thoughts

I can honestly say that every set of rain gear I tested for this review did not leak, even the ones that did not make the cut. Clearly the manufacturers are not only listening but actually putting their gear to the test in order to give hunters the options we want and need. While those factors may differ depending on the hunter, the best hunting rain gear should keep you dry.

Hunters or outdoorsmen face many obstacles when they're chasing game animals. One of the biggest challenges is beating the elements and in this case, it is rain

The most important factor for rain gear is the materials used in them because each material may not perform the same way under rain as other materials do.. So considering the special technology behind the fabrics when you choose rain gear is definitely noteworthy.. The last thing you want to have when you’ve bought rain resistant hunting gear is to find the water seeping into your inner layer.. Choosing rain gear with or without insulation is completely up to whether or not you need it.. If you are in a more tropic or humid area, you definitely do not want to get rain gear that is already insulated because you will sweat and become too hot.. So if you consider the climate and hunting season you will be hunting in, you will be able to more easily pick rain gear for hunting.. Lighter weight rain gear will usually provide the base amount of rain protection without any additional features and will be easier to move in.. There are many different backpacking rain jackets and rain pants on the market today.. In accordance with serious hunting rain gear, we recommend you pay special attention not only to the weight of the rain jacket and pants but also to the warm protection abilities of the rain gear you choose – one of the best options in this case – Badlands Exo Jacket .. Poncho rain gear is convenient to use while providing light protection from water and wind.. That makes rain suits the best type of rain gear for fishers, being indispensable when working in harsh waters.. High-quality rain jackets, on the other hand, will keep you bone-dry and comfortable no matter how long the rains last.. It is rain and waterproof under very high pressure and used ultimately in rain gear production, construction, and garden equipment development.. Scent-Lok® technology is the most effective scent control system and has aided in the selling of thousands of duck hunting rain jackets and other rain gear stuff.. A wind shell technology (windproof), which is used in most modern rain gear productions that are presented in our rating can not only cope with rain and snow, but also keep your body warm and breathable.

Discover the best hunting backpacks for bow hunting, duck, deer, and so much more. Pack everything you need and enjoy the adventure!

Pockets: Pockets are a good thing, but before purchasing a pack because it has piles of pockets, make sure each of those pockets serves a purpose.. Many Midwest whitetail packs have hooks and loops that allow the hunter to hang the pack from a sturdy tree limb or pack screw-in hanger.. The great thing about internal frame packs is the frame comes with the pack.. External frames must be purchased separately from the pack, but these frame and pack models are often some of the most high-quality systems available to hunters.. Badlands’ Superday pack is a well-built pack that provides plenty of interior room for the day hunter.. Pockets on the pack are purposeful and having used the pack for multiple years in an array of environments, I can testify to its toughness.. Hunters that go with this multi-day pack can also purchase a 1,800 cubic-inch pack that attaches to the frame for day-hunt trips.. I used the Elite Frame and 3800 Pack for the entire season on multi-day hunts, and the pack is remarkable in every way.. Why It Made The Cut : The ridged stay-open design of the pack allows instant access to the main compartment, and the lid folds out and away from the pack and puts a zippered compartment close to the hunter to minimize movement.. Purpose Served: If a pack is designed for whitetail hunting, it was tested and used for whitetail hunting.. However, most deer hunters tend to hunt from an elevated position, and the best packs for this type of pursuit are those with rigid designs that allow the pack to remain open without collapsing on itself.. The longer you plan to stay in the woods living out of your pack, the more cubic inches that pack needs to have.. More pack manufacturers are creating packs in solid color options.. Hunting packs get dirty—inside and out.. The only way to find the right pack is to make sure the pack will meet the needs of your style of hunting.

Whether you’re scouting your favorite hunting zones or just curious about the critters cruising through your yard

The right trail camera for you will depend on several factors including where, when, and why you use it, your budget, how important image quality is to you, and how high tech you want to go.. To help you choose the right trail cam for your needs, we highlighted the most important features to look for and narrowed down our list to the best models for each type of user and budget.. One of the main divisions in the trail camera market is whether or not the trail camera connects to a cellular network so it can wirelessly send images over greater distances.. Networked cameras are great because they provide nearly real-time information from your camera(s), but there’s increased cost and setup complexity, so you’ll want to be sure you really need the connectivity.. If you’re a hunter, you probably already have a good sense of what patterns are most appropriate for your area.. You want the camera to snap a photo as quickly as possible when the motion trigger is activated in order to best capture the subject.. “Have it snap a few pictures with you walking by and then review them.. Especially with cheaper cameras, I have found that regular alkaline batteries don’t provide enough voltage for the IR flash, and many times, a trail camera may not record video with underpowered batteries (alkaline batteries start decreasing in voltage as soon as you start using them).. If you’re setting up a cellular trail cam, make sure you check signal strength in the area.. My selections here were based on conversations with other hunters, Cameron Shrum of C&K Archery , who uses and sells trail cameras for hunters, and from my own firsthand experience testing dozens of models of trail cameras.. I usually set up my trail cameras a month or two before I intend to hunt an area, and leave them.
