For guys that have experience with both the first lite gear and Sitka. I am trying to decide between a Woodbury jacket or stratus for Midwest whitetail hunting from a treestand. Wind is usually my biggest enemy on staying warm vs being cold. Does the Woodbury jacket block wind? How does The Woodbury perform shooting a bow? I have a Sitka fanatic vest. would one jacket work better than the other with this vest. Or do I even need it with either of these? I am leaning towards Woodbury based on feedback of how quiet and warm it is in a tree. I plan on layering with maybe 3 under layers. UA cold gear compression thermal. Llano crew and Chama 1/4 zip. Other feedback on sizing and opinions are welcome.

Woodbury is a phenomenal piece. I use a llano short sleeve, chama hoody and Woodbury. Sanctuary Bibs on bottom. This will get you to some cold temps. I can't imagine you'll need more. Warmer days just walk in with a SS llano and wear your Woodbury once you get there if 50-60. I also have the stratus and prefer that if 30-60 but cold mornings I'll use my Woodbury. I think stratus is pretty versatile, lighter and wind proof. Woodbury is quieter but heavier and also keeps you plenty warm.

You won't need the vest. I'd go Woodbury after reading your post again. Also, it shoots great and isn't too bulky.
