who makes the warmest bibs?

Postby goosehappy » Sun Dec 08, 2013 2:53 pm

I'm looking to upgrade my bibs. I got some Field and Stream from Dicks, that are ok under waders in real cold weather, but I'm looking for the warmest I can get and afford for hunting out of my layout blind. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks

Drake LST bibs are nice and toasty.... I usually wear a pair of thick fleece sweatpants underneath and do well in cold weather...

Goose, I quit wearing bids 5 years ago, I wear two sets of Cabela's MTP Polar Weight Crew Bottoms under a pair of camo pants and Cabela's MTP Polar Weight Crew tops under a polar tech button down shirt with a good Camo coat. I found this to be warmer and not near as heavy and bulky. I wore this While goose hunting last Friday morning in 6 degree weather with a 15 mile wind for 3 hours and never got cold.. Food for thought

get some Carhartt's. warm and tough. also double for work duty.

I'll be getting a pair for christmas I hope! I need some bad. With the weather down in the teens lately and working outside in just base layers and wrangers is getting a little chilly!

I'll second these. I have their Omni-heat Max 4 bibs (forgot the actual name) and they have been great, plus they are very light weight.

Kind of wish I would have bought the matching jacket instead of the Cabela's 4-1.

This is how you layer clothing for warmth. Good plan. And if all the pieces are the right size in relation, then your going to feel more comfortable moving. ie shooting and walking etc. The right 4 layers is always better than a great 2 layers.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Too bad the manufacturers don't put out much info on the insulation value of their clothing, so it is good to get experienced opinions.

gotta read more in depth or get in touch with companies. I would look hard at the first two options below.

Natural gear stealth bibs- 150gm
Cabela's dry-plus II - 150gm
Under Armour skysweapers- 100gm
