    And if anyone is interested in the first lite stuff they are having a big sale starting Tuesday 20-50% off of everything. Just a little heads up.

    My buddy was at rural king Last week and they had some camouflage Lincoln brand insulated bibs for $50 and a similar insulated jacket for 50 bucks and after purchasing those went to Cabela’s in Lexington and compared the quality even up with bibs were twice the money, I’m not hunting -20° by any chance but he recommended I take $100 up there and buy a pair just for back ups

    Here's some links for the MT050 gear. I picked up the MT050 Parka and bibs two seasons ago. Fantastic gear, just don't do much activity in them, you will sweat.

    Cabela's

    Note: the parka is not showing on the Cabela's website?

    I pair the MT050 gear with the Cabelas Predator Extreme PAC boots

    First Lite make awesome garments. I have some of their Merino wool base layers. For bibs, I currently use Browning Hydro Fleece and they work well. I have the 3 in 1 Hydro Fleece parka but last year I got a Sitka Fanatic jacket. Let me tell you, Sitka is the bomb. I use the Fanatic now along with Sitka gloves and head gear. Going to switch to Sitka Fanatic bibs next year. Anyway, check out Sitka. You won’t be disappointed.

    This fall I picked up a pair of Arctic Shield boot blankets. Good timing with the temps on opening firearms weekend. They worked great, slip over my boots easily, drop a small hand warmer in and your feet are good. They're not bulky and don't hinder movement in your stand.

    I have some Walmart specials from a decade ago. They are nothing special but they do the job...they are very warm. I dont move around a whole lot when wearing them so they experience no wear and tear. However, I bought my son a pair from Academy Sports last year or 2 yrs ago and I was extremely impressed with the quality. Reinforced in stress areas, heavy duty webbing, some kind of extra thick and touch material on the knees, etc for a grand total of 40 bucks...same price I paid for mine. Although I dont NEED them right now, i am sorely tempted to buy a pair.

    By the way...bought a pair from Cabelas before the Academy pair and both clasps broke on the first wash. I told the customer service person at Cabelas when I returned them that they were a POS and should take them off the rack.

    Got a pair of Walls in the old original Mossy Oak pattern. Dad dug em out of a pile of “trash” they were going to throw away on a construction site. Yep I wear layers under them but my cheap arse ain’t gonna spend a load as long as they are working for me. I need to break down and get some updated warmer ones but I’m always like, “Maybe next year.”

    I've been using Arctic Shield bibs and jacket for over 10 years. They are very warm and good quality. Just like some of the others, don't do too much activity when wearing them or you will sweat your @$$ off.

    Got mine 10 or 12 years ago at Walmart, they are Remington brand , got a heavy weight and a lighter weight for temps above 35-40 degrees. Both sets of bibs and jackets have been great for hunting and plowing the driveway. Still use them, sometimes the grandson uses them too!

    As luck would have it, the zipper on my bibs busted out a few minutes ago. Looks like I have an excuse for a new pair.

    They are Walls. Wear something for 10-15 years and they fall apart. Shaking my head. ;)
