Has anyone gotten one of these yet?  Just wondering what the quality is like.  They say it's worth $129.99 but I want some real opinions.  Also, I was told they run VERY big so I'm curious about that as well.  Thanks!

Yes, I have one and my dad does also.  I think they are a very nice jacket.  They have a nice silk type lining in them, they are very quite and they are decently warm for the cooler mornings.  Meaning in the 50s to 60 degree weather.  They have a good number of pockets for carrying stuff and they definitely keep the rain out.  Makes those bushnell scopes worth even more in my opinion.  With my last one, I got a pair of 10x bino's and the jacket. 

I would say it is around a $80 to $100 jacket, if you were to go buy one in a store.  I have a couple other rain jackets that I paid about that for and it seems to be as good a quality as those.

supertool73, thanks for the reply!  That sounds really good then.  Do you think they run large?  I normally wear XL but the Bushnell guy I talked to, thinks I would need an L then.

I bought the XL which is what I typically wear and it is probably a little big.  But it is just right for me as I can fit extra cloths on underneath it for more warmth. 

My dad got the large and his is a bit big as well, but works for him in the same respect.  So ya, I would say they run a little big.

Picked one up with my scope and it's a great jacket for stand hunting.  The inside liner doesn't breathe well if you're moving a lot.  I find that the sweat beads up inside.  But when I'm in my stand it's nice and cozy with some good layering.

Good point, I have found that with about all of my water proof gear.  I have Gortex and Cabelas "dry plus" in pants, coats, boots, jackets, gloves, and hats.  If I know I am going to be doing a lot of walking and it is dry I definetly avoid wearing that stuff.  As none of it breaths very good.

I also recieved the jacket from bushnell,  I think its of pretty good quality and I loved the price "Free" other than the shipping costs.

Hey, just wanted to drop in with a quick update.  I got my jacket yesterday, it's a little big but it's very nice.  I agree with the $80 - $100 price range.  I can't wait to get into the woods and give it a real try!

Is this the Bushnell Waterproof Camo Hooded Jacket your talking about? They keep saying 4 weeks, 4 weeks, 4 weeks.

Yes, but this topic is over 2 years old.  So it could be a different type of jacket
