I decided to make a fletching cover from an old pair of rain pants. Not sure how old they were but they were old enough that when I cut a leg off ... all this inner liner fell out like dandruff...

How noisy will that material be? My wife made me one out of a piece of scrap camo material with an elastic top to hold it in place over the fletching.

Make mine out of thin leopard print. Spray scotch guard on occasion. No bulk.

Tlhbow, that's not a fletching cover, it's t-roy's loin cloth!

T-Roy you're in luck. It has elastic in it and will probably draw up more thong like for you. It's one grade up from fishnet hose. But see through none the less. Ha, ha,

And when you’re wearing Sitka, the animals can only see your bow. ;)

To keep my feathers dry Ground Hunter

I found a cover actually makes it worse. Seems the water easily finds its way inside the cover, soaks the feathers and the cover seems to cause the feathers to collapse sooner with the cover pressing against them. I found the best way to keep feathers in good shape in wet weather is to use waterproofing spray or that nasty powder, keep them separated (like in a bow quiver) so they don’t rub on each other and try to avoid walking through wet brush or anything else the feathers will rub against. Also helps to tap the backend of the quivered arrows occasionally to shake off excess water.

Another reason I use a CatQuiver or an original leather Glen St Charles back quiver They hide and protect bright feathers.

Plus I can try to emulate the Glen StCharles cool factor :^)
