    Anyone bought a good one for cold weather this year? What kind, from where, how much, and are you happy with it even though it hasn't gotten too cold yet? Thanks, Dave

    I know browning has a couple. An even the bird hunting gear too but those are orange and brown color

    I got an Under Armour ski jacket on the clearance rack over the summer for 60.00 regularly 280.00

    It has Gore tex and everything else and its not bulky. But now that I want to use it we are getting mid 50'S in November in NY. Go figure.

    I'm not complaining but ironic; if I wasn't prepared it would be 20 now

    I have the Shoot The Moon polar tech,17* below last week,under armor,sweat shirt and t shirt with my Cahart Artic bibs and was good to go.

    And good luck finding a Wild Hare jacket in any size other than medium,I spoke to several different vendors a few months ago and all said they would not be making anymore until next year sometimes,Wild Hare never did answer the phone.

    It warmed up to -18F last night and we shot skeet. A local company makes Arctic gear. The Quest jacket is not for the most severe conditions, but with the fleece liner works well for these temparatures. Since the parkas are locally made, shooters modify the front pockets to shell pouches that hold about 50 shells in each pocket. It may be be overkill for the Lower 48, but works well in Alaska. Here is a link. http://www.akgear.com/parka1.html

    I like the looks of the John Storm jacket but can you get one with your own name instead of the coat manufacturer's name across the upper left pocket?

    Thanks for all the replys. The fairly priced coats all seem to be out of stock or discontinued and the others are out of my means. What happened to the Brownings and Bob Allen's? Few selections.
