Anyone use their clothing? I have a duck hunting jacket of their and love it. Warm, quiet, waterproof and comfortable. I was thinking about getting another jacket and bibs for deer hunting.

I have never used their clothes before as I have the gamehide Monster suit for deer hunting but I know a lot of people that swear buy it for being a warm, solid piece of clothing. I would probably purchase some if they offered in Lost Camo.

I use it pretty often. It doesn't breathe at all but it's waterproof and warm. Also carries on of the best warranties and excellent customer service.

I bought a pair of their fleece waterproof gloves. I like 'em. Use them for the boat ride and setting deeks. Can't call with them so I take them off and rely on hand warmers.

I barrowed a jacket and pants from a buddy while I was at his house to hang some tree stands and it was pouring rain. I stayed dry and warm, I really liked the jacket my self and it has held up well for him.

I have the Eider jacket and won't EVER have anything else again. Most windproof, waterproof jacket I've ever put my hands on.

The jacket I have is an old version of the Eider. It's just as good now as the day I got it. I was thinking about getting Under Armour but think Rivers West has them beat in durability and warmth.

That's my take, too. Most waterproof "breathable and waterproof" garment I've owned, but it doesn't breath at all, and is still steamy hot with the underarm vents open if I'm very active in less than COLD weather. Comfortable as an old sweatshirt when I'm relatively inactive.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
