I like that " Vertigo Gray" for tree stand hunting, or on the ground during snowy conditions. In the tree, the gray kind of matches the sky and really breaks up your image. It's pricy but if you watch Sportsmans Guide cataloge, sometimes they run some great prices on this patterrn. That's where I purchased mine.

I use the Team Whitetail gear...3 in 1 parka and pants...they were about 170 for both. They are weather proof, scent proof, etc. They also have lighter gear you can buy at a fraction of the cost of the Scent-Lok gear for archery, etc.

Just curious. If it is warm and convenient for all seasons, why are you looking for something new?

I like to layer. For my coldest sets I wear Under Armor 4.0 cold gear on the bottom, heavy wool pants and sweater in the middle and Gortex type rain suit to block wind on the outside.

Luckily, I don't have to contend with the nasty white stuff, but when it's cold down here, I wear my Game Hide NAHC logo camo coveralls, and Drake Waterfowl Parka. Other wise, it's whatever camo I can buy the cheapest, and of course when I'm dog hunting for deer in the swamp, I always wear my Dan's Muck Boot hip waders, since I'm usually standing in about 3 feet of water.

Considering that I have to take blood thinners due to my strokes, I'm usually freezing if the temp drops below 40 degrees.

Fair enough. For what little it is worth, once I find something that really works I stick with it. I've been hunting in the same wool sweater since 1999!

The Under Armor is a fairly new thing for me. I have also heard complaints about UA but I think it is fantastic. I think the problem is that people think all UA is the same. In fact, some UA garments are actually made to keep you cool. If you are looking for gear to keep you warm on the stand, I'd go with cold gear 3.0 or 4.0.

I have some of the Rocky extreme cold long handles, and they help tremendously, but they are slightly bulky. I usually wear them when the temps drop down to freezing or below. I also have the Cabela's camo, scent free thermal underwear which is what I wear on a regular basis, and of course I have the Redhead summer weight stuff for our early season. It helps keep me cool when it's in the 90's and sitting in a deer stand.
