Quintus, I too have a Browning Quad Parka. It is about 15 years old, but is very warm, and as you say waterproof. I like the zip out down liner to wear by itself, or wear the outer coat by itself. There are tons of pockets in it. The camo pattern is a little dated, but works well here in South La. I wore it for my Chama Elk hunts until about 6 years ago. I started wearing Sitka after that, and wore the Open Country pattern, which seemed to work better than the Browning pattern for the mountain terrain I was hunting in. I still have the Browning quad parka, and bring it along "just in case".
