Default waterproof jackets that are Quiet?

Does anyone know of any good quality, quiet waterproof jackets? All of the ones i have are somewhat loud when you move and that doesnt go over to well in archery season.

Squal Tex or Storm Tex from Bass Pro. Both are extrememly quiet, comfortable, and affordable.

I use the Cabela's Silent-Pro System. And I love it. Works well for bowhunting. And if you need something for colder weather I also use there Revolution Fleece! Good Stuff.

When it is really raining or snowing hard, I have a set of Cabelas Rain Suede camo that I wear. It is pretty darn quiet and fairly inexpensive.

Good luck.

The rain suede from Cabelas is what I have also. Just got it 2 weeks ago. It fabric
seems to be very quiet. Have not tested it in the rain yet but they claim the dry plus
membrane is water proof like Gortex but is less expensive. Will be wearing it during
turkey season in 2 weeks.

Try the Gander Mountain Guide Series H2OTech. The least expensive of anything I could find on the market, and as far as I can see, just as good in quality.

I'll second muliefever, I picked up a set of the Silent Pro from Cabelas. I have only used the jacket for winter steelhead fishing, but it seems to be quiet enough, and the price was right. I'm saving my pennies for a set of the waterproof wools, but they are big bucks.

Now were talking. I'd like some of those myself.
