Cabela's Space rain for just in case
First lite storm tight for when I know it's gonna suck.

Space rain packs the size of a baseball and they have been on sale pretty cheap.
"Right now, I am thinking that If my grandmother was here, she would be lecturing me about how there are poor people in Africa, that would just love to have a Ruger, I would just say "Great, granny, lets just ship all the Rugers to Africa!"


Loving life in the Great Northwest one day at a time.

It sounds like it's time to get a new gun.

Kuiu Ultra NX for "just in case" and Kuiu Yukon for those days when you've got to wear it all day.

Kuiu chugach.  Durable and light, best of both worlds. If it was little to no chance of rain or on a tight budget the teton raingear is super light. Never worn it but my buddy does and likes it. Carry a roll of tenacious tape in your pack in case you get a rip. That stuff patches up any kuiu clothing reall good.
