    Could you tell me more about this? Is it fairly rugged or closer to a stitched Tyvek? Noisy? Has me curious.

    This is the one I got...had it a couple of years now but his was it's first time in really foul weather. My rifle has a boyd stock and a blued barrel and action... so I was a bit worried about water damage in AK. The outside is a cordura or cordura like fabric that has a strong elastic band woven into it, the inside has some sort of plastic coating. I figured it was better than nothing, and because it was full length went with it over the rapid X cover. I had my rifle in my lap in the packraft with the barrel in the bottom sitting in a pool of water and the stock getting constantly splashed. When we got off the river the cover was soaked, I pulled it off and to my surprise the scope, action, and barrel were bone dry.

    Definitely rugged, pretty darn quiet... maybe not as quiet as neoprene. Way burlier than Tyvek, like I said I think it's cordura... very similar feel to my backpack, held up well in oak brush in CO and devils club in AK.

    Man, congratulations on a great AK adventure and a full on Adak surf and turf! Adak can be finicky when it comes to weather, but as you mentioned, it looks like you nailed it for your hunt. It's not nearly as far out as it seems, huh? I hope you can get out to the Island again, as you saw there's so much to see and do and it looks like you guys did it right.

    Jealous! A trip back for waterfowl is definitely on the bucket list, can't wait to see the pictures.
