What type / brand of deer hunting clothing??

7 posts in this topic

I was just curious as to what type / brand of blaze orange deer hunting clothing everyone is wearing. I am using Cabelas Versalon as of now, but the pockets are too small and the jacket is pretty heavy. I am looking for a parka type jacket with BIG pockets that is warm, quiet, weather resistant and not too heavy. I wear bibs underneath. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I got the cabelas Dry Plus 4-in-1 parka and am very happy with. I think it is light weight, but yet the warmest blaze hunting coat I have ever owned. If I want to pack light, the pockets are big enough to hold my range finder, binoculars, bottle of water, grunt call, can call, extra shells, and a knife and some rope.

i have the cabelas revolution fleece. Insulated jacket, Uninsulated pants. They are awesome. I wear an orange vest over the jacket or I wear a parka shell only when Im sitting and its below 20 degrees.

I dress in layers fleece and wool and then put a thin orange fleece jacket on last with nice pockets, this way if it is warm out or I am doing a lot of walking I can take layers off and wear the thinner orange coat. I have buddy's that buy under armor this and under armor that and real expensive jackets and it's funny how they get cold and I never do. I tell them to buy wool and dress in layers, but I guess they worry about "looks" out in the woods. I wear wool pants as well, they are warm, silent and durable.

Sure is funny, I wear Under ARMOR And never get cold it's my first layer of defense.

I also use Cabela's E.C.W.C.S. was designed specifically for the U.S. Marines and special forces.

Wool absorbs water (and lots of it!) up to 50% which makes it Heavy!

& Bulky & takes for ever to dry.

Great for sitting but not for walking!

Under armour is the shiznit!! Stuff really works good. As far as a parka I just bought One from Gander Mountain, it is their most expensive one got it for half price! Really soft and quiet fleece outer and thinsulate insulation as well as their H2O tech water/wind proof. Good pockets on the outside and two inside. They always put all their blaze on sale opening day since I hunt in WI I went their and picked up a 300$ suit bibs/parka for 150$
