archery hunting coat

I am looking to buy a new coat for archery, I have a light one for the early season, but unfortunately my dryer killed my other one after last season. I want one that is light and not bulky, quiet, waterproof, and especially warm, it doesn't have to be able to do antartic but I get cold easy when the temp changes in early november and want to be able to do all day sits in chilly/inclement weather. I've been looking around at Cabela's, Wing Supply, and army navy sites and such. Doesn't have to be scent controlled or what not, I play the wind,shower with scent free soap and spray down, and wash my clothes in baking soda. I have been looking at ECWS generation II parka's and also looking at cabelas outfitter berber fleece with windshear pullover. If anyone has any experience with either of these or can recommend something they use I would appreciate it. I don't mind spending the money for a good coat that will keep me warm and dry, I just don't want to spend the money on a coat and not like it and have it hang in the closet, appreciate any feedback thanks guys.

Re: archery hunting coat

When I wore camouflage I liked and still have a Natural Gear winterceptor fleece pullover. The jacket is worth at least 2X's it's asking price IMHO. Here's a link I wear all wool now. I have stuff I can wear from about mid archery season on thru the late seasons. Wool is a very versatile material.

Re: archery hunting coat

For that time of year, I just layer up. the morning temp is clod but by 9am you are sweating. Same in the evening, go in warm at 3pm by 5 pam you are chilled.

I also have a super light rain suit,m so no special waterproofing needed. The camo sweat shirts with a zipper and a m-2 green jacket liner work fantastic for me.

Re: archery hunting coat

I bought the Rivers West jacket, pants and bibs, not too bulky but warm if needed and totally waterproof.

Re: archery hunting coat

I'll second the rivers west stuff. I've got a light weight jacket and a heavier one for rifle season with pants to match. They are the only thing I've worn that was completely waterproof no matter how hard it rained.
