    So far happy with my Jahti Jakt suit
    Jacket very comfortable but I do sweat a tad in it, hard to get perfect balance between rain getting in and sweat getting out.
    Trousers not used much as a shorts man - but again comfortable camp or 4wheeler pants
    BUT – the company gone belly up – but there is still some items in stores

    Just bought one of these: https://www.armyandoutdoors.co.nz/co...ert-mvp-jacket

    Absolutely love it, great practical fit and set up. Bomb proof thus far, last few weeks hunting has been in heavy rain and pushing through soaking scrub etc... no leaks and toasty warm inside. One hunt i got short on time and had to boost out so instead of back and forward off the track, river bank/bed and crossing it i just highwayed down the middle of the river for a couple of kms. Was cold on the legs, especially when it was riding up but i had that jacket on with a thermal under it and was enough to keep me comfortable enough to keep blasting down the valley. Have been that impressed by it i bought a second!

    Am sure these ones will be equally as good as the British nato ones. And in German fleck camo which most would probably be more into.

    I looked at the glasinock and the alpine tarn at stoney creek stand at the fieldays. The glasinock was a lot lighter than the tarn but the tarn felt more hard wearing. I ended up buying the Alpine tarn for $200. The alpine tarn has been discontinued i believe though. Tried it in the long woods on Sunday in the rain and was impressed. Wasn't hosing down just drizzle though.

    Interested in peoples experiences of various rain shells performance when carrying packs? Wore my Marmot rain jacket (some type of 2 layer fabric) for a 3 hour stroll in light rain, and found that at the pressure points the inner 'waterproof' membrane was rubbing/peeling off! Probably not the recommended use for that coat, but got me thinking about jackets that can handle a bit of that.

    When mountain designs were running here I bought one of their storm repel coats. Seems only the Aussies and us care for long coats that will cover down to thigh / knee length. Its been absolutely brilliant had it for 5 years or more, water still beads off, and I still dont get wet in it.

    Men

    This would be its equivalent today

    You can get them for 40 bucks off eBay. A fair bit cheaper I think.

    Ah. The hidden fee.

    I will have a look at the German one. Seems like a good idea. I have a good rain jacket but I don't want it getting wrecked by bush lawyer etc.

    what to buy, WATER PROOF/WINDPROOF JACKET

    Just picked up one of these on clearance, seems like a good deal as you effectively get 2 jackets, warm as a furnace but yet to try out in the rain though.

    So I see gin city is now stocking Manitoba? And Manitoba is using a licenced version of TechL-Wood (camo company) camo pattern "specifically designed" for New Zealand environments.

    It looks nice and the price is good for a jacket/pants combo, But has anyone handled these or better yet worn/abused them?
