Getting outdoors in the fall is one of the best times the year for everything from hunting and fishing, to backpacking, hiking, and camping—the cooler days and nights beckon us to get outdoors. However, being outdoors can be challenging in the fall because of the weather. Fall weather can be pretty unpredictable, changing from sunny skies to rain more quickly than any other time of year. It is important to be prepared for these sudden changes, and rain gear should be at the top of the list for any outdoor activity that you and your family are planning. Cabela’s offers some great choices for both men and women looking for rain gear that is functional and looks and feels great. Here are just a few suggestions of what Cabela’s has to offer.

In addition, the pants have stretch panels in the knees and seat, as well as adjustable bottoms to allow room for boots.
