Re: opinions on hunting coats

I've tried several different coats over the years and was never impressed all that much.This year for bear season,I dug out the ol' Woolrich...don't know why I ever quit wearing it!!!
Since then I picked up a pair of Woolrich bibs-very warm and comfy!!!
Ain't fallin for that "4-in-1,Gortex,Thinsulate,windproof,17 pockets and a cup holder" nonsense anymore!!

Re: opinions on hunting coats

When I started to hunt a hunter with a Woolrich Outfit was considered as well to do.

Re: opinions on hunting coats

I have the Hydro-fleece and love it. I used a Cabela's Revolution pullover for years and found that to be very warm. Cabela's now offer the Revolution in full-zip and 4 in 1 styles, as well as the pullover. Might be worth a look.

I wear wool all season, let the temperature determine how many layers.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

Re: opinions on hunting coats

Loved my Woolrich also. I still have it. But i can remember opening day in 1979 and the rain. I think I weighed 30 percent more coming out of the woods draging that buck. I dont trust the new Raingear also, it just doesnt look right like the old style Gortex did

Re: opinions on hunting coats

I use a Browning Highland wool outfit. It works well but you need a couple layers underneath it if it's really cold. If it's raining hard, I put a gortex rainsuit over top.
