Dryasabone and woolen bush shirt. More recently a shower proof Ridgeline jumper/jacket.
Hunt safe, look after the bush & plug more pests. :thumbsup: Better to load on the mild side. :o The greatest invention in the history of man is beer. :drinks: "Often the written message doesn't convey all of the information"

Just suck it up and get changed when you get back.
Easy for us to say in North QLD I guess when rain isn’t cold. Might be different for you blokes in the southern states though.

Oilskin if I'm not worried about the noise. Gortex Thar anorak made by Stoney creek when I want to get real serious or in New Zealand when the cold rain could kill me

None, I don't bother doing SFA if it's raining, I just wait till the sun shines and go from there. :D
