Any suggestions for outer layers for a January Idaho lion hunt. My plan is to layer with various weights of merino wool/under armour, but I'm having trouble finding good information for the outer layer. Also, my plan is to take a set of coveralls for riding around on the ATVs then shed that for any hiking. Thanks in advance for any advise!

A water/wind resistant softshell would be the way to go. My favorite: Sitka Jetstream. For pants/bibs I wore Sitka Celcius Bibs and they were perfect. May also want to consider a good pair of gaiters if you go the "pants" route.

I just got back from a lion hunt and my favorite layer was a Kuiu Guide jacket. I wore a super down jacket under it when riding around or standing. It was easily stashed in my pack when hiking.

Buy a good set of gaiters!! My OR Crocodiles were worth every penny
