I'm at that point now where I cannot get to the truth about waterproof hunting clothing.
So far I've tried Barber,Deerhunter,Sealand,and various cheaper brands like Jack Pike,Cragghoppers walking gear etc etc.
None of it has stood the test of time and none of it has been truly waterproof.(showerproof maybe )
It says on labels and merchandising ...Waterproof/breathable/lightweight etc etc....but it never is. ?
On Monday night I was out in a serious bit of wind and rain,I was wearing Sealand keeper jacket and trousers, For a normals days ferreting etc etc they have been Fine and so far the best for comfort and breath-ability..But In serious weather or rain = Useless.
Would I be better off with some sort of Rubber Mack on top of my Sealand.
I will say I have never used any of these treatments etc etc on any of them except wax on the barber.
how does all that work..? Do you put it in the washing machine ? is it a spray ? I've just washed my Sealand Suit in machine,Do I need to spend a fortune on treating it with something to make it waterproof ?
