The Cabela's MT050® GORE-TEX® Scent-Lok® Jacket – Regular, IK-930645, is 100% waterproof. Laminate fabrics are treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR), and it’s actually the DWR coating that makes the rain bead up and shed away. The down side is that no DWR is permanent. With extended wear and many cycles through the laundry, the effectiveness fades; however, it is possible to use a spray-on product to restore the waterproofness. When the DWR coating has lost its effectiveness, the laminate will still keep you dry, but you feel clammy because the outer layer becomes damp. A regular care regimen will ensure that your rainwear lasts for many years.

I lived in Alaska for 4 years and hunted Moose, Caribou and Kodiak Brown Bear in Kodiak. Frankly speaking, the exspense you are already shouldering may facilitate you investing in newer rain gear as your hunt of this magnitude should not be comprimised by older hunting clothing. Alot also depends when and where you are hunting In Alaska. Whatever you decide to do, your clothing will take a beating and certainly tested.
