So I haven't hunted since I was a teenager, and it's about 20 years now... Been going out this season, and so far no luck. But I get it.. that's how it goes. I'm curious though, excluding boots. If you had $500 to spend on your mid layer and outer layer. What (specifically) would you get? Lets say temps down to 25 degrees with typical Willamette Valley October weather. Meaning lows between 25(maybe)-35 degrees and (like today) rain, more rain, some hail, some wind, fog, and then more rain. I have a decent base layer. I say decent because I've not been cold so far. flannel long sleeve button up, and a camo fleece. I wanted to be water proof so I bought a camo parka from Bi-Mart. Also got some waterproof pants from bi-mart. Not the greatest stuff, but when buying your entire set up in one season, it can get expensive and so I was on a budget. They worked fine and kept me dry. Only problem is that they were noisy as hell. Felt like I was 8 years old again wearing corduroy pants. Ended up opting for just wet, quiet, jeans. So.. looking forward to next year, I'll be regearing over the next 12 months. So I'm asking some of the more seasoned hunters. What would you recommend in that range. Links would be great. And please don't just say "Wool". I know wool. but there are a million different varieties, brands, models, products, etc... Thanks in advance. And Good luck to the rest of you. I still got one more week to go.
