after i got stuck home for 5 days in heavy nasty windy rain, i got myself a decent hunting jacket. i always get hunting gear over flash tramping gear as you are out for a long time when you are hunting, you move constantly over all sorts of potentially exposed terrain and obstacles and have to be able to sprint. the hunting jacket wasnt cheap and i had to pay it off but it has been worth every cent. if you get a decent one like an under armour one, for example, it will pack down to the size of a water bottle too. at a push a decent army surplus gortex jacket could do but i found mine didnt breathe as well. so yeah, i just put my jacket on and a cap to keep my hair dry and i do it. you can always have a nice hot shower when you get home.
