I wil try to help you out with the first half of your problem since 15 people looked at your call for help and has said nothing. Cabelas makes a Brush Buster Waterfowl wading jacket. It is a 4 in 1 jacket system that is completley water proof. It is a tough jacket and I use it. It is spendy, but it will last for years. By the way, try wearing your jacket inside your waders, and you won't have as many worries. And what is the purpose of bringing the cellphone to the duck blind? Because I having trouble thinking of a valid reason. As far as hunting the Res. I can't help you there.

Try sportsmans warehouse if ya have one near by, they have a good selection and good prices. But if not Cabela's has a Dry-plus hybred pullover and wader jacket that are moderatly priced and will keep ya warm and dry. Remember to layer your clothes and NEVER wear cotton while hunting.

As per the cell phone comment, things like checking the time, calling for help, are reasons i carry mine. Secondly i went to sportsmans warehouse and picked up a browning goretex 4 in 1 and it is awesome. Good price too...

I am very happy to hear someone retort my cellphone comment. I personally carry a CB radio instead of a costly cell phone which I leave in my truck, so I can still make those emergency calls. To me, cell phone calls in the blind is a distration from one of the purposes of going hunting, and that is to get away from everyday distractions and stresses.

For me the cell phone is my primary so the cost is of no importance, secondly it offers zero inconvenience...you just leave it off, unless you need it. I can see no downside to carrying it in say your blind bag, unless your cost gets wet and it fries :) other than that...although you are correct if you are worried about cost cb's should work as well.
