This rain jacket not only packs down small and its super lightweight but it's also very robust! Also very pleased with how well it breaths especially in humid downpours. It has pit zips but I have rarely used them. Definitely not going to need new rain gear for a very long time.
From shooting sporting clays and turkey hunting in the rain to hiking the red river gorge the cloudburst system is awesome and has kept me dry every time I’ve worn it, and I put the jacket and pants on every time it starts raining and I have to go outside. It fits well so you don’t get baggy fabric pooling water while sitting or flapping in the wind while hiking. I’ve worn my cloudburst jacket and pants many times with working in the rain, and recreation and it just flat out works. Not the quiet system if you intended on stalking game, but for everything else it’s the best rain gear you can buy.
I purchased the Cloudburst rain gear system for a Caribou hunt in the Alaskan bush in August. The Clouburst rain gear system worked flawlessly. The rain jacket was lightweight, breathable, and water/windproof. The "pit zips" allow for additional breathability, while not compromising waterproofness. I also like the adjustable hood, which gives you a snug fit and does not impair your field of view.
Hands down this is the best jacket on the market for hunting in wet conditions, it is very durable and is very quite while walking. Kept me 100% dry during a few down pours during this springs turkey season..
Fantastic shell! Performed excellently from rain to cold driving wind and snow. Wore it alone with base layers when it was warmer and raining yet there was plenty room to layer once the snow started to fly. Surprisingly breathable for a water proof shell as well.
