    Black plastic rubbish bag, rip a head hole in the bottom and a couple of arm holes. It's more water proof than most, and pretty cheap too.

    Another vote for Swazi Tahr anorak its old one but very dependable NZ made that gets my dollar. Wouldn't touch Macpac they use very suspect factories in the 3rd world with horrendous labour abuses so not for me they also actively discourage the use of firearms ever noticed how you can't get their gear in hunting type shops.

    Everything is made in the third world. Macpac have some good deals on their distance stuff. I would stay away from the hunting stuff with the fuzzy outer layer as it's just too heavy. I have a spare once worn techniflex jacket that i would sell cheap if you are interested. I brought a xxl then decided i need a xxxl cos fat.

    If a jacket with a "fuzzy outer layer" is waterproofed properly there's no reason for it to get heavy, just spent four days in South Westland in basically non stop precipitation, never took my Tahr off and was nice and dry the whole time, take it off and give it a shake and its dry as and stayed in my tent with me at night

    Maybe I should get 20 of these and soak my HE gear in it, might actually make it waterproof, I'm a bit over these companies over designing gear, we spend so much money on this shit and its actually a little hazardous when you trust a product, go deep and it fails when it's critical for it to work.....

    When I was a farmer I used to use the Line7 breathable range, it was bloody tough and lasted a few years, even took it overseas with me.

    Might be worth a look if you don't care about it not being a hunting brand. Unsure how it compares to other stuff, I imagine @BRADS has tried it and knows.
