All day outerwear
I was brought up that in rifle season, you get up the stand before light, and don't get down until the sun is down or you shoot, or we agree to make drives at a certain time. It has always been that way and still is with our group of guys. I remember shivering many times up the tree wondering why I bother putting myself through this... That was when I was wearing cotton flannel shirts, cotton long johns, jeans, cotton "hunting" socks, and covering it up with a cheap insulated coverall. Thanks to the internet, I've been much better at layering with proper clothing, but I still wear an inexpensive insulated coverall as my outer layer.
What do you suggest I wear as an outer layer for those cold all day sits in 20+ winds, sleet, rain, snow, etc. I pack the outer layer to the stand. I now wear merino wool midweight base, fleece pants and top as mid layer, and pack a Woolrich shirt as a second mid layer if needed. I would like something not very bulky, windproof, open camo pattern to break up my silhouette. What do you suggest?
