    See if this works. Otherwise, use Google.

    kingsizedirect.com or cabela's. I am sold on polartec and cabelas does have some stuff that goes to 5 -- I where 3-4x. WIth the right underwear and a polartec pullover, I'm good on an all day hunt at 30 degrees. Below that, it's coat time.

    Look for fleece clothing with a wind-stop lining. Fleece is warm but it's not really good at stopping wind.

    Unknown1 is 100% right on his post. I have 3 fleece jackets that are warm but the wind goes right through them.

    I believe Polartec went out of business a couple years ago. Couldn't compete with the cheap stuff that wasn't as good.

    Polartec is still in business, I believe that several years ago a fire wiped out one of or the one factory that makes the material but they have recovered and as you said make the best fleece.

    I can find lots of nice fleece jackes that seem perfect except for their collars. I just want a short soft collar that doesn't get in the way when I mount the gun. I can't find one. I can't even find them on 'baseball jackets' in the sporting goods stores. My old 'baseball jacket' is falling apart, but I keep using it because I like that collar.

    Check out Shoot The Moon Shooting Apparel. They made me an awesome RED shooting jacket that fits me like a glove! The polar fleece keeps me warm in New England with only a silk undershirt and a lightweight shooting shirt. I love it!

    eBay may help you find something. I've found stuff as "NIB" in Patagonia for a fraction of the overpriced retail asking and selling. Other brands: North Face, Cabelas, etc.

    Layer instead. I use a thin wicking undershirt and a fleece 1/4 zip on top of it. Then you can use a shirt or jacket as an outer layer. Thisd way you can varyu the weight of either under layer OR the shirt or jacket. I hunt like this in all weather up to the low'20s when I add a light jacket. You can regulate your temperature further by zipping the fleece underlayer turtle-neck up or down.

    I have been doing this for a lot of years. It really works.

    Berettausa on line, under fleeces. "Victory" shooting jacket. I have one and I like it. I also have a fleece Orvis which I like better but I think they discontinued it.
