Oh man - it all depends on what kinda hunting you're doing and how hard it's raining
If i'm in one spot and at a distance, a G-tex gets the job done - anymore just pick one from a reputable seller so if there's problems you can get a refund or replacement. I also like mountaineering/winter camping and have been playing outside in winter for alot of years and g-tex stuff has come along way. I remember when it was new on the scene and too expensive for the "Average Joe".
Times have changed and i've since used The North Farce, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear, EMS, Cabela's and US Issue. Unfortunately, g-tex type jackets/parka's are noisy so if you're stalking, a water-repellent fleece will work better (also do a google search for soft-shell g-tex - lotsa excellent options for hunting application there).
Most recently, i bought a plain-Jane g-tex un-insulated shell from Cabela's for ~ $100 and it works great. it replaced my $460 Mountain Hardwear ice-climbing jacket that was de-laminating (MH gave me a $460 credit toward whatever they sold and i got a wicked nice down parka and a lgt-wgt rainshell).
Whatever you decide, make sure it's way long on the backside to cover yer rear-echelon....
