I used to have a jacket (more like a parka) made by Remington. I wore it for hunting and it was camouflage. It was made of gortex and the inside was some sort of synthetic insulation. I bought it in 1980 and finally gave it to my son since it shrank somewhat (heh, heh). It was klcht, waterproof, breathable, and warm although a little bulky like a down ski-jucket. I had a pair of trousers made of gortex which I wore over my other trousers. I have fallen asleep, lying in the snow

It may not be the best now, but in those days gortex was the cat's meow -- it allowed water vapor and moisture to pass in only one direction.

Pain and suffering are inevitable,
misery is optional.
