    I need to buy a new winter shooting coat and wondered what other shooters are using these days. I prefer not to have any elastic band or other constricting stuff around the waist. It needs to have insulation of some sort as our winter temps can be a little or a lot below freezing. I've looked in Cabelas and other online places and so far haven't turned up anything like what I'm after. Any help or ideas appreciated!

    I have a CJ's with a liner. It definately keeps the rain out, but it could be a little warmer. When it gets real cold and dry I prefer my old Bob Alln down insulated coat. I am going to try the wild hare cold weather coat this winter. All the best.

    I have a Wild Hare coat and it is very nice and very well made. Insulated for use in cold weather, but also features a roomy cut so that layering is possible in very cold weather. We get some of that here in Western NY. Bought mine at Gamiel and am very pleased with it.

    You may want to look into something that has an adjustable elastic band about the waist. I've shot a lot in the cold and at times a good draft can be felt, going up your backside, because the back isn't snug.

    You want fashion? How about Saks? They have a suede-trim Chambrey shirt. Great looking shirt. The denim looking one is 100 bucks. And they have it in brown/Kakki also for 70 bucks. I think I'm going to get one. Jim
