Thread: Light silent rain jacket

  1. #1

    Light silent rain jacket

    Can anybody recommend a light silent rain jacket. Something with a "peach" style fabric, strong and totaly waterproof. Similar in design to the German Flecktarn Gore tex jacket. Prefer non-cammo.
    A fabric like the old sportchief aquatex jacket would be preferred. They were strong as steel and very silent. To be used as a shell jacket over diffrent layers depending the season. Not to much pockets needed. The Harkila pro Hunter is to much jacket.
    A copy of the German Flecktarn jacket, green and more silent would be perfect.

    How about the Harila Albin? I've just bought a pair of gloves from this range and they are cracking:

    Seems excellent jacket. Perfect for my needs. I had been looking at Sitka Gear before, mostly the solid colors, but they are very expensive ( $599). This jacket also is reasonable priced. A pitty they only make them in cammo.

    I just got back from some 'special' weather in the Highlands and put the Norrona 'Dovre dri3' thru its paces. I simply can't fault it and it is the lightest, quietest, most waterproof jacket I have ever had. My buddy has the Rekon (a bit longer and a little tougher).
    Driving rain, crawling through peat hags, wind....it just laughed at all of it.
    I had not really heard of Norrona until buying my jacket but it's a quality piece of kit. Will use for summer stalking too as it's so thin and has monster vents. Not the cheapest but I have, at last, found the perfect jacket.

    Another vote for the Norrona, had the Finnskogen jacket & trousers for the past 3 years, totaly waterproof & light enought for summer wear.
    Not cheep but the best I have ever had.

    A pal who is a FC ranger swears by norrona. He is very familiar with the special weather of what you speak. I need to find a stockist in Yorkshire.

    Looked at Norrona and you'd think for £145 you would have a better range of sizes.
