Clothing

Well its that time again for new clothing, so I figured I would reach out to the educated/experienced people on this board.

Here is my background. I get cold easy.... very easy.. so I am looking for excellent clothing. I am not afraid to spend the money for good quality due to the fact "I believe you pay for what you get". I already have an excellent winter bibs and parka for extreme cold, so I am just inquiring about base layers and archery clothing. I always dress light walking into my stand and put the clothing on roughly 150 yards away. I read reviews on the base layers but find them a waste of time, sometimes. There has to be someone out there that freezes no matter what they wear that has some input here...

Re: Clothing

I hate wearing bulky clothing for archery hunting so I bought a heater body suit. It's the best investment I have. Wish I bought one years ago!

Re: Clothing

I get cold easily too so I did a lot of research on this topic myself. The biggest thing is to get a layer next to your skin that pulls moisture away from it. After a ton of reading I went with Merino wool and have been truly happy with the choice. Various companies make it, I personally use Kuiu gear. After you get that moisture off your skin you can layer up accordingly. I use Kuiu gear for hunts that I'm moving around a lot or for the earlier season. Their gear isn't designed for cold weather but serves it's purpose as good as any during those above stated times. For colder weather I have King of The Mountain Wool and am very pleased thus far. It is extremely expensive but is truly heirloom quality and will last a lifetime. If King of The Mountain proves to be too far out of budget then give Cabelas Outfitter camo Berber fleece a shot. It's extremely quiet and if layered well will keep you very warm. I'll throw out one more plug for Cabelas's fleece Stand Hunter long underwear. I use this in the bitter cold and it really helps to keep me toasty. I combine that with Merino wool underneath for moisture control, and King of The Mountain Wool as an outter layer and I have the ultimate cold weather system. Just do some research on the web and you'll find tons of information to help you find what's best for you. Kuiu has a blog on their website that talks about merino wool and some of their down products that they have . They provide a lot of technical information about different fabrics and their uses. Good luck!

Re: Clothing

King of the Mountain offers many different systems. They literally make garments capable of keeping you toasty in an artic tundra. Their lighter garments designed for bow hunting and all day sits in less freezing circumstances are amazing though. You can sit in 10-30 degree weather all day and be just a little too warm. LOL. Very, very expensive but for people really affected by cold, it is a great option. I like to hunt late season a lot and these garments have never let me down. I don't wear them if I plan on doing a lot of moving though.

Re: Clothing

Thank you for lead on King of the Mountain clothing. Information like this is why I keep posting on HuntingPa. I am just tired of being cold even though it doesn't keep me off the stand it does make it sometimes miserable. Anyhow, this king of the mountain clothing, which do you suggest purchasing? I notice they have a few coats etc. I will buy the bibs, well because I like bibs for comfort and do not have to worry about them falling down. Base layers is the next area I will be looking into..... Any suggestions on this? I noticed merino wool and kuiu gear was mentioned. Does anyone else have anything they like?
