    I've got the Frost Line. Nice comfy jacket and plenty of pocket space but I wouldn't want to be in too much continual rain with it, as its a soft shell type. That aside I rate it highly for it's intended purpose, cold frosty mornings on the valley floor or on the quad.

    Thanks I'm just after one for over base layer and under raincoat but that can handle pushing through wet bush without soaking up liters of water

    They both seem pretty bulky. My SC gear that ive owned has all been better made than the HE gear.

    What about somthing like this https://shop.pointssouth.co.nz/colle...e-guide-jacket

    Ive got a kuiu softshell and its bloody awesome as a winter hunting outer.

    Thanks for that I'm after a year round jacket that you put on in the morning then Chuck in your pack as you warm up
    Kuiu would be great but out of my price bracket.

    Yeah they are spendy. Mine was when they did the cheaper line. Same material as the guide but no hood.

    I do like the soft shells but only use it on fly ins or road hunts

    Not to heavy but fairly bulky. Nice to have in the winter as they cut the wind like a rain coat but are quieter and breathe better. However kind of double up in my layering system so gets the chop if I'm carrying camp on my back

    Nice! You'll be really happy. Very tough, durable and light weight.

    The firstlite gear looks pretty good but I don't like the colour. Too brown for me so I lean towards Kuiu when not buying NZ products.

    Ive been running the guide jacket for abit, Its real good for protecting the merinos. I love the guide pants man solid as. Only gripe I have with the jacket is the hood looks weird. Performs really well
