Yes. Own the IWOM XT and swear by it. In think it is a better option than the HBS. More pockets, arms free, tons of more built in features in a truly water and wind proof garment.

I have not but hear they are awesome. Just too much $$$ for the few times I would use it. If they were cheaper, I would already own one.

My buddy and his father both have the HBS and said they are the best thing since sliced bread.

In my opinion the IWOM is better because of the mobility of your arms, and the ability to wear it around your waist into the stand. It's just easier to put on while in a stand.

HBS is awesome, I love mine! Bought it bout 5yrs ago and still think it's my best hunting investment!! Mine's in Predator camo, which is what I wanted. Only thing I don't care for is trying to put my big ole clog hoppers in the "leg" sections on a small treestand that's 28' up in a tree!!

I've been going back and forth on one of these for years now. I think I'm going to pull the trigger this year.

Question for the iWOM guys. Is it suitable for shooting a compound? I like the fact that with the HBS your arms are completely free when shooting.

The upper section is typical parka like. Probably be a good idea to wear an arm guard on your brace arm as you would with a parka.

Nice thing Bout the IWOM is that you can wear the whole thing neatly packed at your waist, just the parka with the lower section packed at your waist, or in full deployment mode when on stand. Built in double face mask and hood. Built in relief zipper for when nature calls, built in hand muff, all kinds of pockets.

Pennsylvania based company from state college as well. I have talked to the partners that own it several times.
