Cold Weather Suits

Ive had scent lok full season pants and jacket for about four years. I really like like them but they definitely aren't full season worthy. I wore them in November in Iowa with under armor cold gear sweat pants, hoodie and vest and the mid west wind still cut me. The vest was one of those wind shear jobs from cabelas.

I'm going to Wisconsin this November. I can't hang stands on these properties so I must climb. I'm looking for something warm but non restrictive as ill be tramping up the bluffs in western Wisconsin to strap a summit viper to a tree and climb to archery hunt.

Looking for suggestions. Thanks.

Re: Cold Weather Suits

I have never used one, but would love to own one and that is a Heater Body Suit. Nice thing about them is you can wear your other gear underneath. Seems like everyone who buys them, loves them.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Cold Weather Suits

Fleece is the warmest, quietest, least restrictive material I've used. Layer it over a good insulating base layer, with no cotton worn anywhere. Bought a nice set at cabelas a few years ago. I stand 10 hours in rifle season in this outfit with a heavy one piece coverall as a top layer and never get cold in all our PA weather. Breathes very well and keeps body heat in. I switched to the poly sock liners with wool socks over top in my pack boots as well, and what a difference. No more cold feet. I'm convinced anything with cotton in it will keep you chilly.

Re: Cold Weather Suits

Best option is pack in a pair of insulated coveralls or heater body suit

The older I get the better I was.

Re: Cold Weather Suits

Pack in a Sitka Fanatic suit! Awesome stuff! Little pricey but good deals can be found.

Re: Cold Weather Suits

Whatver you buy you will have to pack it in. When you get sweated wet, you will get cold. Not to mention the additonal scent and a weary whitetails nose. I wear Cabelas elite fleece when it gets super cold. Would it be my first choice with an unlimited budget, probably not, but I got it on sale and am quite happy with it besides it being a little bulky.

Im a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Re: Cold Weather Suits

I'm trying to avoid bulky. I usually pack my jacket, vest and synthetic pull over in to avoid sweating. When I was younger I had big bulky jackets so that's why I went to the scent lok full season stuff. Thanks for all your opinions so far.

Re: Cold Weather Suits

Look into the Arctic Shield line of clothes, I have a jacket and pant in the H4 series. Very warm without the bulk and very quiet.

Re: Cold Weather Suits

Can you get yourself some wool? First lite is pretty pricey, but supposedly some of the best out there.
