HUK NEXT LEVEL KRYPTEK ALL WEATHER JACKET AND BIB

Field and Stream - - FIELD TEST - —Mark Mo­d­oski

$350 for jacket; $350 for bib hukgear.com

Huk’s 100 per­cent wa­ter­proof, 100 per­cent wind­proof rain gear com­pletely seals you off from the el­e­ments with­out cook­ing you in your own juices. Which means that even in the hottest, mug­gi­est weather, you stay bone-dry and com­fort­able. Hinged Vel­cro cuff clo­sures, wa­ter­proof zip­pers, and a re­mov­able hood add to the wa­ter­tight pack­age to pro­tect you on long, rough runs or while fish­ing in an ab­so­lute down­pour. Plus, there’s a con­ve­nience zip­per for when na­ture calls.

De­spite the ar­mor­like qual­i­ties, the jacket and bib are sur­pris­ingly light­weight and com­fort­able. I wore them for hours in the worst con­di­tions this sum­mer and fall with­out miss­ing a beat. And when the day is done, this stuff stows bet­ter than any other high-end foul-weather gear I’ve tried. Avail­able in Kryptek Raid or black (shown).
