    I bought some "Stand hunter" Bibs from Cabelas. Worked great.
    I also bought some bibs from Cabelas with added insulation in the butt and back,,, but they havent been made for years.

    At one time I was looking at Expedition clothing, But the Cabelas Stand hunter is fine. I dont plan to do the stupid -20 anymore.


    I did end up with some messed up XXXL Polaris bibs ( $5.00) that Ill wear over other bibs Im 6' 1" and my wife cut 10 inchesh off the legs, and took 5 " off each side.
    Someboy in China really messed up

    I use the Omni heat for ski layers and cold weather layers, some times dive layers (dry suit) if I’m not using merino wool.

    You've always struck me as more of a mittens kind of "guy."

    Last season I bought my dad a heated vest sold by DeWalt and a spare battery. He really likes it. He wears it under his 3 and 1 parka. He's 76 and gets cold pretty easily. Don't remember the recharge time on the batteries but it's not very long.I take him out in some pretty chilly temps. I would recommend buying the brand that matches your battery op power tools if possible. Millwalkee sells one as well.
