Glad to hear that. It'll be a purchase for me after hearing that.I used my umbrella here in PA and Ohio last year for an all day sit. Worked great. I just picked up a kuiu Yukon on here to use in Colorado. Glad I had it. We got caught in thunderstorm and it was worth every penny and it’s weight in my pack.
If I was in a stand, and if it's cold enough to justify wearing them, I'll have some neoprene boots off the bat and have a rain jacket in my pack.I was recommended Frogg Toggs and they worked great as a cheap option through them on under some Camo. The worry for me was noise but since it's already raining you will blend right in till you get to your stand or whatever your setup is.;
