    Not sure about the stoney creek stuff, but I had the same issue as you only lasting a year with the seal flex, now I am using kaiwaka stormforce Kaiwaka Clothing > Store and into its 3rd year it still keeps me dry, it no longer beads but still stays dry on the inside, it is one product I would highly recommend.
    TIKKA 595 7mm08 for the deer 12 gauge for everything else!

    I've had the pioneer pants. Been threw three pairs in less than a year. Gave up on them in the end after sending them back.
    Then I bought a pair of force 11 pants last year for snow raking. They have been leaking for about three months in the knees.
    I'm reasonably tough on hear but not real hard. I mean fuck we only get 350ml a year!
    Techniflex used to last me a winter when I was around te anau

    Yep.
    From memory the Pioneers kept finding new places to leak around the seams. The seam tape was coming off in one pair.

    The Force 11's are just too soft below the knee and become weak and leak. I think its because of the reinforcing on the shin and over knee areas, that it tends to get a real hiding where its not reinforced.
    Very comfortable though

    Great jacket for farm use. I think mine is around 5 years old and still keeps the water out. Zip is stuffed but the storm flap keeps most out. If its really bucketing down I use my new one. Leggings arn't quite as good as in the same time I've had two pairs and both have gone in the inside of the knee.

    Yip with you there. Some of that farmer outdoor wear is harder wearing, and performs better than that expensive gear from other outdoor hunting clothing brands.
