Thanks to all for the straightforward info. My decision is to keep the rain jacket ( I hate paying shipping ) as I had a spray bottle of " ReviveX" . This product restores "Goretex". We treated the coat Saturday and wore it to the Packer game Sunday ! Didn't leak a drop ! Any thoughts on bibs ?

Simms is some of the best gear out there. If you have the money for it pick up a set and you will be glad you did. If you are on a little tighter budget then Cabelas Guide Wear is good.

daleracefan, I agree with you Gortex is a must have in my book, and they stand behind their product. They have replaced boots for me that were messed up during manufacturing that leaked when the boot manufacture would not. I will only buy Gortex boots and rain suits. However Gortex does not make them, they only supply the Gortex waterproof lining or insert.

Wow great topic to discuss. I have purchased many high end suits over the years. They do seem to have a lifespan. Work good for a while and then you just get wet. Recently purchased the pro qualifier suit from bass pro. Suit works good if your standing and the water runs off. When you sit to run or troll you just get wet up the arms and in the crotch area. The old yellow rubber suits are hard to beat.

My buddy who sold sporting ware was always disappointed with the high end "breathable" rain gear. I could never afford it anyway. The frog tog stuff worked great and was comfortable enough as far as a rain coat goes but a soaked butt sitting in a boat really turned me off "paper" rain pants gear. Medium duty rubberized gear always kept me dry enough, but the weight and bulk made it less likely to be packed along. Bass pros have an affordable coated nylon suit that is lightweight, packable and works; 35 bucks for the top and 25 for the pants. That's the best I've found so far, that works for me.
