Which Hunting Clothes?

I want to get some new hunting gear this year. Looking at Nomad and Huntworth.
Need some opinions from first handers. Opinions on other clothing companies also welcome.

Pretty much wear wool when rifle hunting. Either a Woolrich coat or Filson, with Filson pants. Have been wearing the same Filson pants and coat for 30 years, had to replace the crotch in the pants with a patch several years ago. I bought a pair of Codet pants(Big Bill), last year, which are really nice wool pants for around 100 bucks.

For bow season cotton camo coveralls.

for 45+ years I wore Carhart insulated bibs and thought they couldn't be beat until I got a Cabela's coat and pants 2 years ago for our Newfoundland hunt. Exceptional cloths for cold weather!

Woolrich jacket and Pendleton wool pants. If it rains either rubber poncho or my duster. Mankind has yet to create anything equal to wool as far as keeping you warm. Doesn’t matter if it’s soaked, still warm.

No, Silent-Suede Dry Plus waterproof. The pants are awesome and I wear them even on warmer days if I am going to be sitting. Pants and coat have a ton of pockets and are really warm, I really like them!

Sounds good. I almost bought a Wooltimate jacket and pants last year when they were on sale. Heard they are very warm. But. when I am sitting and it is cold I usually wear Walls insulated coveralls.

I get cold sitting, so wool if it's in the mid 30s or so, or if I'm still hunting or slow walking. Wool allows you to be quiet. Any lower than 30s I have the cabelas MT50 I think it was called, not sure if they have that anymore, but the wooltimate is also good. If you buy the good stuff it lasts a long time if you only wear it for hunting, unless you're dragging it through the nasty stuff, multiflora rose, barb wire fences, etc. My complaint with the synthetics is the noise against trees/brush. Fleece outer is a little better, wool is best in that aspect.
