The rattiest, most worn out piece of hunting gear that you still use regularly (retired gear need not apply).
Let's see it.

Got a regular camo cotton shirt that used to be long sleeve, but I cut the sleeves to be a short sleeve shirt. I wear it over my under armor t-shirt in warm weather and over my insulated undershirt in cold weather. It has holes and is faded out...but I just keep hanging on to it. Fits well, comfortable and just too cheap to buy a new one.

Got a ratty pair of coveralls, I don't know how many deer I have killed wearing them. I had people poke a lot of fun at them.

I bought a pair of Whinchester hunting boots 6+ years ago for $20 at Hammer's discount store. They had been a little leaky for a year or do and cold as SNOT, this season I got "staked" by a 1' thick bushogged briar stem, in both feet. They leak like crazy now but those soft soles keep em quiet. At 250# I need a quiet boot in the hardwoods lol

Mine is a blaze orange hunting vest made for me by a buddy's wife in 1970. We couldn't buy store bought cloth vest back then most all were plastic and noisy. Somewhere along the way I black spray painted camo leaf on it (high tech) and years of briars has picked threads now it's shabby, it's become a rite of passage for my kids and now grandkids to wear this vest on their first deer hunts. My buddy is long since deceased and it is ratty but one of my most prized possessions

I have a pair of bibs that were issued to my father in 1944 while he was in the navy. These things are HEAVY you can barely read the USN on the front bib. I usually try to hunt in them once a year.

Army fatigue pants I use for warmer weather hunts. I got them as a teenager, and lost enough weight to wear them again. They have big holes in them, but I duct-taped over them last year on a squirrel hunt to keep the chiggers out \:\)
