What makes eVent better?

The critical difference between eVent technology and traditional waterproof/breathable fabrics is the millions of microscopic pores built in to eVent's proprietary membrane that work instantly to vent water vapor (sweat) that builds up inside your apparel and footwear when you perform.

This is called Direct Venting™ technology, and unlike other technologies, it doesn't need to get wet to work. It’s a 'dry system' that allows eVent fabrics to be fully waterproof and fully breathable – keeping you dry and comfortable in the widest range of temperatures and conditions.

Direct Venting™ technology is engineered to keep you in the ‘dry zone’ – a steady state of temperature and humidity that reduces the wild swings our bodies go through to stay in balance during physical exertion.

The result is that you’ll spend more time performing at your best and less time fussing with your gear. And when conditions are bad, that can make all the difference.


    How to measure:

  • - Use a soft tape measure to take the measurements shown on the model.
  • - To measure your chest, run the measuring tape around your shoulder blades, underneath your armpits and across the fullest part of your chest.
  • - For sleeve length, with your arm slightly bent, measure from your shoulder to your wrist or where you would like the cuff to hit.

    Awesome rain jacket

    Posted by sgk on Dec 14th 2023

    Wow, just received the new rain jacket in black and the quality of the materials is just phenomenal. I thought it was a bit expensive but now I see it’s actually a great deal. Now I may have to order the cold weather jacket to round out my winter shooting jackets. I am 5 ft 9 inches and weight 250 with a 42 inch waist and found the XXL to fit perfectly. Just enough room to fit a light sweater if needed but it’s not loose as to impede my gun mount. Both jackets although made for clay type shooting will work very well for upland type hunting as a bonus. I now own many items from Wild Hare and every item has exceeded my expectations. Well done Wild Hare

    Simply a great jacket

    Posted by jonhoffm on Oct 27th 2021

    Having owned the cold weather version of the jacket for a couple of years and being very happy with it, my expectations for this jacket were quite high. This jacket not only met those expectations, but exceeded them. The jacket runs true-to-size and is plenty roomy for ease of movement. The only tweak that I would make would be to move the Shock Eater recoil pad pocket in toward the collar. Perhaps it is just my anatomy, but the recoil pad is further out on the shoulder than I like. Great product and worth the investment.

    Wild Hare Hydro-Elite Waterproof Shooting Jacket - Black (WH-471L-BK)

    Posted by David A on Oct 12th 2020

    The jacket arrived yesterday, which was a really fast delivery to New Zealand. The fit is excellent and the sizing guidelines spot on, I ordered an XL as I am 6'2'. Whilst I have not been out shooting with the jacket, I intend to this weekend, I am sure it is going to perform well in the Wellington weather. The construction, weight, and range of movement are all as good as I could have wished for. This is a quality shooting jacket at a very reasonable price.''

    Great Shooting coat.

    Posted by Tom on Jul 3rd 2020

    I have long arms, so liked the length of the pockets on the XL, but the shoulders and shoulder shooting patch were too loose. I went for the Large and the shoulders and shooting patch are a much better fit. Pockets are a little higher than my other shooting vests, but will get the hang of it I am sure. '

    Great Jacket

    Posted by Robert M. on May 28th 2020

    I have been looking for a jacket for shooting sporting clays in marginal weather. This is it! The jacket is sharp looking, light weight, water tight and has sufficient pockets for storage and lots of comfort for movement.

    Super-Waterproof Shooting Jacket

    Posted by JonEMax on Apr 27th 2020

    Recently used this jacket at Del Norte Rod and Gun Club in Northern-most California. Raining in buckets would be an understatement. All in all it was a great shoot and I came through it completely dry.

    Rain coat that works like it says it does

    Posted by P A Bentley on Feb 28th 2020

    Coat works as advertised. Really like the cuffs that are up inside the sleeve to keep water out.

    Great jacket

    Posted by William on Jan 12th 2020

    Great jacket, Jacket is everything I wanted, unfortunately I ordered the wrong size and had to ship it back and they won’t have my size until spring. The company is great I had zero problems shipping it back, two people called me to make sure that I was satisfied. Great company to do business with.

    Every thing I wanted

    Posted by Boyd 2 on Mar 1st 2019

    I was able to try out my new coat on New Year’s Day in the rain. Shot all day very comfortable lots of range of movement. Only improvement would be a yip in liner for those really cold days.
