    IMHO the best option starts with a J and ends with ohn Storm. Buy with confidence, you won't regret it.

    John Storm!


    They will custom fit one to you--whatever your shape. The jackets are not bulky but are very warm. No restriction on movement because they are cut for shooters.


    My wife has the long model, I have the short waist jacket.


    Order one now and be done with it.

    If you order the liner in the trap coat, does it zip out or is it sewed in? Trap coat with liner $270 = wow

    I am not sure how cold it is where you are but my Browning Ballistic jacket was warm at -15 C +5 F. Waterproof and windproof. Good buy at $113. My opinion, your mileage may vary :)

    ps..Great Cutomer service at Shyda's.

    Short Model - liner is not removable


    Long Model - removable liner is an option


    They are not cheap--but they are the best however.

    I bought one from John at the grand in the mid 90s no liner. I use it all year even in the cold weather. My wife wanted to wash it and did't know how. She called John he told her how to wash it. It still looks good. only leak is where i had my name put on it. Don't do that.

    Look at the BerettaUSA site. They have a nuce selection of coats and gear. They're not a bargain barn however.

    Guess it depends on how much you want to spend. I have a Browning Ballistic jacket. Warm, windprrof, waterproof. I'm on the range a lot when its below 20 degrees. Not bulky and no problem.
