cold weather hunting clothes recommendations

I am in need of new cold weather gear. My old wool gear has run its course.
What are your experiences with clothes?
Any manufacturer / style you could recommend.
I don't mind spending money on gear that will last me 10 years.

My guns are not worth your life; but my freedom and liberty are worth mine

Re: cold weather hunting clothes recommendations

i love my cabelas wooltimate suit with windblocker on super cold days. its a blend of fleece/wool and you can put it through the washer.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

I have Cabela's berber fleece. Sorta look like chewbacca, but a light layer underneath and you're all set. It has gore windstopper in it.

Re: cold weather hunting clothes recommendations

Take a look at http://www.riverswest.com 10 years warranty. If it needs repaired they will send you a replacement while its fixed. Had mine 5 years wind and waterproof, warm and quiet. Never had a problem with it so far.

Get some more good quality wool. Lots of choices out there. I've gone back to wool after trying lots of other stuff over the years.

Re: cold weather hunting clothes recommendations

Wool, Polyester or Down. Pretty much anything Polar-tec or similar (polyester fleece) has worked very well for me. The Wooltimate fleece that Cabelas sells works well (wool/polyester blend). When things get really cold it's hard to beat goose down.

My biggest gripe with winter apparel is finding good socks. Their are a bunch of supposed "wicking" or "wool" socks out there that are junk. It's amazing how many crappy socks companies sell and then people wonder why they have cold feet.
