New hunter with a clothing question

Postby AronBlad23 » Mon Jul 15, 2013 6:38 am

Have a question about gear...hoping it can get answered. I am in the process of acquiring my gear for the upcoming seaon. Wader wise I'm going with Cabelas ultramag 1600 after seeing so many of you recomend Cabelas waders. Here is my question...how are the Browning Dirty Bird jackets (I use Browning Hydrofleece gear for deer hunting and I like it a lot) Under Armour skysweeper and the LL Bean technical waterfowl shell...I like the Sitka stuff..but the price is pretty steep. If I get a wader jacket like the Dirty Bird or Sitka to layer over for real cold weather and a Under Armour Skysweeper jacket to wear under my waders am I going in the right direction? Thanks

Aron:\

I am a bit above you on the map, Ontario. I have been running Cabela's Ultimate Waders for 7 yrs, and have never been cold. On the flip side, they suck till November. Way too hot.

As far as the top half, find a warm, windproof fleece, and a waterproof shell. I am currently using a Drake pull over MST and a Drake EST rain shell. Layer up abd down you;ll be fine,

If you decide to go with drake go to their website and click on the outlet store. Pretty good discounts on stuff in duck blind on there.
