The warmest that I've ever owned was a Bob Allen winter coat. Had it from mid 70's till turn of the century when I lost have of me. Couple years ago I was able to buy a as new in my size off here. There isn't any that I've owned (most already spoken of here) that's kept me as warm. They are also non binding allowing full freedom of movement and extra large roomy pockets. But they're not at all waterproof.What is everyone using for winter shooting coats.I would like have something water proof and wind proof. Just looking for options and reviews!
Wasn't warm to me with liner in place. An inexpensive sweatshirt felt warmer.Care to elaborate?
I'm probably just to sensitive to what I like.
Wild hare has really good coats.What is everyone using for winter shooting coats.I would like have something water proof and wind proof. Just looking for options and reviews!
I use a John Storm custom fit jacket that he invented because he couldn't find a good fitting trap jackets that allowed full movement and prevented binding and pulling, etc... With the optional Thinsulate lining the jacket is toasty warm and absolutely windproof, amazingly so. I have several coats and padded vest I have used for shooting, but the John Storm jacket is my goto jacket that never ceases to amaze me with its comfort and fit. When it's freezing outside, I add a light padded vest under the jacket to add warmth. Unfortunately, there is no way to keep your hands and fingers warm with shooting gloves, so I use electric hand warmers from Amazon and put in my jacket pockets to warm my hands between shots. Can't say enough good things about the John Storm jacket that was specifically designed for trap shooters by a trap shooter and custom made in the USA. Call Leslie and she will make sure you coat is customized to fit you perfectly. Takes about a two week turn around all year, except for Christmas time. There are many trap shooters out there that own his coats and I am sure they will sustain my opinion...I have the Wild Hare Winter Coat but I can't remember the last time I wore it.
I prefer wearing a wool pullover, as they seem to be less bulky, and gun mounts easier for me.
As for the rain, that is not for me.
