When it rains, it pours. And when it pours, you better have some rain gear close by to keep you high and dry during your hunt. Sure, you can hide out back at the truck, or at camp. But if you want to stay in the game, you better have the rain gear to keep you in the hunt. 

With a wide range of budget options, here’s a look at some of the best rain gear for bowhunting this season.

FORLOH AllClima 3L Rain Jacket

This is a serious piece of rain gear with a bullet-proof design delivering the ultimate system that’s waterproof, breathable, and windproof. 

It’s built with the brand’s Airadigm Pulse Plasma technology which uses only 1% of the DWR treatment. This prevents blockage of the breathable membrane, allowing the wearer to stay dry, but it also greatly reduces noise and prevents excess odor from sweat. It truly answers the demand for better rain gear for hunters.
