I am new to hunting and have not tried it in the field yet. With deer season opening this weekend it will be used a lot in the comnig weeks. It is not a heavy weight jacket, but I think it will make a good outer shell. It is roomy enough to put several layers underneath, but it is supposed to be 50 degrees this weekend so it may not be necessary. Camo design is very nice and the jacket does appear to be water resistant as I wore it out in a light rain to walk the dog.

I also bought the matching pants. I've only used these items once, but so far, they are pretty much as advertised. They will resist light rain, but once it started raining heavy they did begin to soak through a little. It was fairly warm when I used them, so I can not speak to the effectiveness of the Omni-Heat feature. This gear was also relatively quiet when I was moving around. Both the jacket and pants definitely run large. I am 5'9" and 190 lbs (muscular), and there was plenty of extra room in the medium jacket and pants if I wanted to wear a couple layers underneath. Overall, a good combination of water resistance and quiet for hunting black tail in western Oregon.
