Best jacket to receive for birthday
Just curious my lovely wife is looking for ideas for my upcoming birthday possibly a hunting jacket.This would be used primarily in Tn. on the plateau temps. range from the 20s to the 40s so something I could layer with.Right now its almost 80 so today won't count.We sometimes hunt Mo.Thanks Lewis
Sitka Stratus or Fanatic. The Celsius is a layering piece best used under another wind stopping piece. The stratus is the lighter of the two and would probably be better for you with a layer underneath. The Fanatic is a better jacket but might be a little too warm.
Thanks all does the Fanatic lite not have wind stopper.Lewis
For anything from 20 to 40 degrees, a cabelas windstopper fleece works great. It is about 1/6th the price too. God Bless
Cabelas wooltimate, or here's a new one I absolutely love. Plythal pre rut series. Great stuff.
find some King of the mountain wool or sleeping Indian designs wool,, nothing is better for extreme cold,,,,,,, and you won't look like your part of the fashion show.
Sitka Stratus... or Fanatic.
Cabelas Wooltimate jacket. It's the ticket for cold weather and won't break the bank.
Day One Camo Pull over shirt
Kuiu Chinook hands down...
Any of the Kuiu jackets are hard to beat, IMO.
Stay away from under armour my only suggestion.
I have 3 I use a bunch.
A cheap cabelas silent weave uninsulated for early seazon.
A core4elmemt element jacket for temp taround 40-50
A wooltimate jacket for late season
All are nice and non are too pricey. Each has a place whereally they exel.
Love my kuiu super down. Light , packable, warm ...
Ravenwear, you have about 20 more days to order before they shut down to retire.
Son gave me a Sitka jacket that has a zipper that crosses. It is made for archery and is great.
Thanks all for the info I do appreciate it Lewis
Do not know how I ever survived without one of those lol Good luck Lewis
Which jacket did you end up getting, Lewis??
Stratus so far so good Lewis
