    what do you guys think about the new polyester outer shell? At least the company was thinking on this one. It sheds water so much better than that great cotton shell.

    hah... what jacket? I got a windbreaker or something
    but I won't use that until december.

    Do yourself a favor, and wash your jacket cotton
    or otherwise with Nixwax detergent etc... its used
    to waterproof winter coats, but works well/OK for
    cottons etc.

    I was lucky to get two pair of shorts,
    and two pair of pants...

    which one do you guys have? lol.... the last thing they gave me for a jacket sucks. It repels better than the old ones issued did, but if there is any amount of real rain I get drenched. I loved the rain jackets we used to be able to purchase, but alas mine was stolen so anymore I just use a raincoat I bought at Northern Tool and Equipment....lol

    I have one of the nice rain coats. Thank you to one of my two favorite OMS, who transferred close to Rochester a while ago.

    I remember a fun thread from 2002. You should try to find it.
