Default Advice on Rain gear

Looking to buy some new rain gear this fall and was wanting some suggestions... I like the new cabels new drop camp line but no reviews on them yet. Mainly be used in bow season, quiet and dry are my main goals. Thanks

My lovely bride bought me the new Cabelas Rain Suede Evolution with Scent Lok Parka and Pants for Christmas last year. Got to use them one time before the end of the season, was very impressed. They don't smother you and are very quiet. Allow moisture from your body to escape, and totally water proof. I am very satisfied, so far. Hey, if your wife buys you gifts like that, I'm very satisfied !

Gore Tech is what I use, seems to work fine, not too loud or hot.

Rivers West Gear. I've been totally impressed with this stuff. It's pricey and it can be a little warm in early season, but I've stood on stand in pouring down rain for a few hours during rifle season and stayed bone dry (aside from my hands because they stayed in my pockets and the rain would run down the sleeve and fill up in the pocket). It's completely quite because the material on the outside feels like a brushed fleece material. Very impressed and happy with it.

Rivers West won my vote last year after 5 hours of downpour and I stayed totally dry. It was cool out, so I cant speak to it being too hot in the early season.
