Most camo is too dark in my opinion. I like soft colors, grays, black mix.
I've been looking at the Fanatic line but your review has me pondering.
i wear an inexpensive synthetic base layer top i buy from amazon. for long johns i use mostly the duluth brand, but if it is really cold i use the cabelas or sitka heavy weight.
my mid layer top and the best i have found is the kuiu peloton 200. my only complaint is that it is not very durable, but it does a great job keeping me warm and not sweating. if necessary, over that i wear a sitka mountain vest mostly because of its lightweight and wind blocker. i found that with a hat, neck gaiter, and gloves, those pieces keep me comfortable into the 30's and 40's. if i am on the move a lot, no problem with only those pieces into the 20's.
for pants, everything from the army fatigues, sitka mountain pants, or kuiu axis hybrid depending on temps, weather, and where i am hunting.
if a jacket is needed, i usually wear the kuiu kenai if it is dry and if it is light rain or snow the kuiu axis hybrid.
i recognize my gear is not ideal for tree stand hunting and there is likely better for this type of hunting. my longest sit in cold weather is 2-3 hours. for that i have my clothing dialed in to my liking.
I decided I needed a heavier hoody for the mid layer. I debated on a few different options and was real close to getting the Sitka 330 but ended up ordering the First Lite Furnace hoody due to what I think may be the better value. I should receive that piece today.
For bottoms, I have a couple different weights of Smart Wool for a base layer and either KUIU guide pants for warmer weather or First Lite Sanctuary bibs for colder. Both of these pieces shed the horrible burrs we have here in Iowa fairly easy. Fleece is a definite no-go!
Thanks for the review. That 330 hoody may still end up in my closet in the future.
For bottoms I have a mid weight scheels base layer. I love the Kuiu attack pants (bourbon color) and wear them from 90 + degree weather to below zero. For temps below freezing I add in a pair of Kuiu Proximity bibs/pants.
When its hot I just wear a drab green T shirt. Once it cools off I will add a gray fleece Magellan 1/4 zip. Not sure why I love this 1/4 zip so much but it fits great and has sone warmth to it. Next I use First lite sawtooth jacket. (It’s a little Warner than a sweatshirt). Last is a Kuiu proximity jacket. This covers he from 90+ degree temps into the single digits.
One thing I will add this year to the line up is a Kuiu base camp sweater vest.
