Grey wolf woolens
I probably have a better chance of winning the lottery, but..... i have a set of insulated grey wolf bibs and parka in predator fall grey. Theyre a size large and just a little too small for me. What are the odds someone out there has a size xl thats a little too big and would want to swap? Im 5' 9" about 205.
They are the warmest thing ive ever owned and it seems like such a shame to have them sitting around not getting used.
love gww wool
good luck man
I loved my GWW bibs as long as there was no wind. My set didn't have any wind protection. They were super warm on calm days and like hunting naked in the wind.
And you conducted a test naked to be sure the comparison was valid?! LOL
Patdel: It may be worth reaching out to Gray Wolf to see how much $ to modify the set you have.
They make them with a quiet wind stopper lining, just have to order them with it. OP, good luck, I think most guys will need a larger size as they age lol. I would try and sell them and get another pair. Great people and product.
I have a set of XL in like new shape, they are the wolfskin ones, double insulated in predator fall grey, I don't want a trade but I would sell them
I knew they made them like that. Many years ago when I ordered them I was penny pinching and didn’t order the wind stop. They worked great without the wind stop for the majority of my hunting but when it was windy they sucked. I loved those bibs, but I like my Stratus set better. To be fair, it is all because of the wind protection.
Just making sure it was known that there was, and has always been, a windproof option. Did not mean to offend.
Carcus, i appreciate that. The set i have is actual wool and id like to stick with that.
I wonder if they still make wool stuff, or have gone to all wolfskin?
When the old lady split a few years ago i started liftimg a lot of weights just to keep myself from spending too much time on a barstool and ive bulked up quite a bit. Suppose i could just quit lifting weights and theyd fit again.
Update...they dont make wool stuff any more. Something about the e.p.a.
Dont have enough material to alter. So its either slim down or keep looking. Thanks again all.
No offense at all. I just didn't provide all the information in my original post and you did.
I have the bibs and coat with the liner.
Purchased years ago in Cabelas (prior to them going big box) bargain bin really cheap - can't remember exactly but for sure under $100.
Love em, wouldn't get rid of for anything.
If they are in good shape you sould get about what you paid for them. Good luck.
I love my fall grey wool parka with the wind stopper. I also have a wool fall brown 1/2 zip pullover with a kangaroo pocket that's my go to when it's not as cold.
I have the original lined bibs and bowhunting jacket. I don't always wear them but they go with me on every hunt where there is a chance of serious weather. Custom made 16 or 17 years ago..I think...just as good as new. Hope you find a set used man.
