Looking for a new Jacket

Postby ohsobad_hunter » Sun Oct 31, 2004 12:01 pm

I have worn my old jacket out and its time to buy a new one. I am needeing some opinions on what is the best jacket for under $125. I need it to be really warm because it gets very cold here. I will alson be wearing it under my chest waders, so keep that in mind. I prefer to get the advantage MAX-4HD camo as well.(looks great!)

Thanks Fellas,
Mat

Look at Cabelas I have a parka of there's its a Dryplus. It is great for cold weather and not a bad price. And I have never gotten wet in the rain using it.

Herters coats are good. Mine has been through 5 seasons and still works great. No need to replace it any time soon.

I was going to buy a Herters, but then we ended up getting some weather and I needed a coat in a hurry, so I had to buy a 4 in 1 from Gander Mountain. It was only $120, down from $150. I am really happy with it. It has all the features as the herters that I originally wanted. I guess the true test will be the shapre it's in in three or four years, but so far it's been great.

New Jacket

Postby ohsobad_hunter » Thu Nov 11, 2004 4:11 pm

I finally made my mind up and bought a Herters 4n1 wading jacket. To say the least, I love it, it is very very warm and fits perfect. I got it in MAX-4 camo, looks great!!

Thanks for all the input fellas,
Mat

Yes they are very nice. I love the neoprene cuffs. I reached my whole arm into the water the other day and stayed dry. VERY cool!
