Check out these herter's jackets.

my jacket has worn like iron. got it 6 years ago. I'll still use it this year, but I got a steal of a deal on a 4 in 1. I just had the regular jacket. It has taken a beating and then some. It was my hunting/everyday coat.

Here is a great 4 in 1 wading jacket. I have been very pleased. Rain does not stand a chance...

Cabela's Brush Buster 4-in-1 wader jacket

I have the Brush Buster wader jacket. Love it! Got a great deal on it last year after Christmas. I would stack it up against any jacket out there, including the Drake, which is a superb jacket too. Drake is going to be $60-$70 more expensive, but you do get some cool features (the spring closing pockets and magnetic closing pockets). But, the Brush Buster is built solid and has a very tough exterior--good if you're walking through the crud to get to your blind.

Only thing I dislike about the Cabela's coat is the elastic on the wrists of the interior coat (the liner) is very snug. I prefer it looser myself to give room for gloves, but it's nothing that a good seamstress can't fix in 5 minutes.

I've worn it on only a few hunts so far, but they were all real cold days (10 degrees or lower) and I stayed warm. You can't go wrong with this jacket or the Drake. Good luck.
Rest in Peace, Ryder. Boy, you went before your time, in the start of your prime. You were loyal and are missed.

:withstupid: You can buy any jacket you like. But im telling you Columbia is unbeatable in my book. I have never had a Drake, but ive had several others and the columbia is awesome. Down here it doesnt get real cold but on our coldest days if you wear the inner and outer liner its almost too hot. And its guaranteed for life. One of our guys started leaking last year he had the thing for about 8 years he sent it to columbia and they sent him a new one. Just my opinion but i really like columbia.

I agree columbia makes some awesome jackets, I have one that I use for a ski jacket and its great, but they dont have a great hunting selection.
