I am beyond impressed with this set. I broke it in on an Idaho whitetail hunt in colder than expected temps! It got down to 3 degrees, and it was an average of 15 and windy while I was out hunting. Whether I was walking around or sitting on the snowy ground, I never once got cold. Speaking of snow, there was TONS of it (1-2 feet in some spots), and it was snowing quite a bit. I never got even damp.
I can’t stop there, because I was hiking through sage brush and stickers all week, and I came out with 1 or 2 on me, while my hunting partner had tons stuck to him.
The fit is snug while still allowing for 1 or 2 layers underneath. It was super quiet and easy to take on and off - with nice big pockets!
Even my hunting partners wife (an Idaho native who hunts all the time there) plans on buying the set! Can’t say enough - buy it!! :)
For reference I am a size 2-4 at 135lbs, athletic build and I got a size small.
I was honestly skeptical how warm this jacket and bibs were going to be when I tried it on. They’re not thick and bulky. The movement is incredible. Small details in the design that make a BIG difference. Wool Under-layers are still key if it’s really cold. I was able to sit this past opening gun in 7 degrees (with wind chill) for 3 hours. Wind was whipping. I also ground hunted in same weather and knelt in a snowy field for an hour - knees dry as a bone. Highly recommend. So happy I finally found gear that enables me to hunt in any weather. Shipping was super fast too. Ordered Wednesday and got it to southeast WI Friday afternoon.
I did get the jacket one size bigger for layering. I love how it fits. Hopefully next hunting season I will get to try it out. I may just wear it when it snows in our area.
Quiet, warm and great fit! Bibs are really great!
Could be more insulated and warmer but I like it. Comfortable.
