Hunting parkas,what kind?

Postby Dogman » Thu Aug 12, 2004 1:18 pm

Recently picked up a 4-1 Gamehide parka in Mossy Oak shadow grass as a prize at a sporting clays shoot.Can't wait for cold weather to get here!So what kind of outer wear do you guys take with you to the fields and marshes
My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.

I wear a Cabelas Northern flight 4 in 1 parka in Wetlands camo. I have worn it for the last three seasons now and it has been a great coat. The price was 99 bucks and its kept me warm and dry and you know as well as I do that it gets cold here in New England come December and January.

I have Herters water proof ones. 1 is unlined and I use to put over a sweat shirt of similar. The other is a parka and I have bibs too-both water proof (sim to goretex) ALl in Fall Flight camo :thumbsup:

Too bad Herters is not around any more. They had good products at a reasonable price.

Fal Flight Camo is now only avaiulble from the FF website last time I chaecked ans was way expensive (like Columbia). :(

I purchased Herters 4 in 1 (Hudson Bay Series) on sale from cabela's last summer (like $89). Great deal on a very functional jacket--and then I moved to Las Vegas. :pissed: Good thing I do most of my hunting in the northern part of the state.

I know how you feel. I moved to southern washington and it was in the 60s on a lot of hunting days. I ended up wearing sweatshirts most the season. Still good coats though :)

I've had a Browning 4-in-1 wader jacket for the last couple of years. I've hunted snow geese in it while it was 2 degrees with a -4 wind chill and never was cold. If there's any item that you shouldn't skimp on it's definitely a good jacket.
