    I am unable to find a nice/warm Camo sweat shirt that is not a hoodie. I prefer Real tree pattern in size 3x. Does anyone have any ideas where I can order one? I have had no luck with google, eBay or amazon. Thanks.

    the people that buy/order clothes for retail stores, are not the ones that ever go hunting. i thought i couldnt find clothes the fit, [being small in stature], was because i didnt fit the demographics.
    turns out, that is not so much true.. no one can find stuff much, to wear. it is as if its, either take what i sell, or not. i dont care.. and they dont.. if they did, would they not sell better goods..
    i just broke 100lbs, when i graduated from high school in 73. yet i could find levies that fit in adult size. when i went into the NAVY, 20yrs. old, my whites were 26" in the waist..
    i could find clothes that fit anywhere.. i had levy 15" bells. barely worn. my mom through them away. to say i was mad, would be a gross understatement. those would be worth $100.oo a pair or more, right now..
    only one person wears something like that, a trend starts.
    Sorry, i was getting a bit carried away.. didnt mean to hijack, your thread..
    so; do you have to go online to buy, because sporting good stores are so bad at stocking stuff that fits?? i run into this problem all the time. been looking for socks the fit for years. come to think of it, shoes, least 2 or 3 decades, somewhere inbetween. maybe, a big and tall shop. unfortunately there is no short and small shop. someone who could do this would make a fortune.

    sweat shirts are made out of cotton. cotton does not insulate. find something made out of smart wool if you want warmth.

    I like a quarter zip fleece for this, you can zip it up and keep your neck warm and its not made of cotton. I just put a camoshirt over a green Colombia fleece i already own.

    Everyone is correct they make some high end clothing now that's way better than cotton but it's pricey.
    But to answer your question, No the sumabatchies have lost the pattern for a heavy duty cotton sweatshirt from the 80's.
    LMAO, more like a sweatshirt without a hoodie & camouflage is for white folks, which in turn makes it racist.

    Have you tried the folded clothes at Walmart? I generally get my sweatshirts and sweatpants from there

    I find quite a bit of 3x stuff for a steep discount at cabelas or basspro. It seems like it isn’t an in stock item and they have trouble getting rid of it after it’s returned. I am an xl or 2xl but I am tempted to purchase every time because it is so discounted. Some of is Gore Tex and typically high dollar. Of course we are getting into the time of year where I would prefer a beating than to walk into a retail store.

    I’m a 3x top (or 2xlt but hard to find) and a 2x in pants. I get most of my nicer stuff (nice for me but not high dollar) from Cabelas Bargain Cave. Just check my app every few days. As far as straight sweatshirts, I’ve got several old mossy oak and realtree patterns that I found at Walmart as mentioned above.

    watch, and no, I don't work for them. They have good deals on all things hunting. If you want warmth, go merino wool. If you want bulk, buy cotton....
