A co-worker of mine bought this suit. He said it is great. He said it is quiet too.

Does it require orthopedic surgery before wearing ? Your shoulder blades must fit in the hip pockets

I wouldn't want my arms incapacitated. Also if you had to stand - turn around and shoot it wouldn't work.

Wearing it in the woods would result in more Sasquatch sightings, IMO.


If searching old grandmas at our airports is so important, shouldn't it be this important at our borders too?

I have something similar except it has arms and u drop it down over ur feet and zip the bottom shut. Doesn't work for standing and turning around but that thing will keep u perfectly warm in any temperature I hunt in

This Suit I bought has allowed me to hunt in some horrible Bad Weather

It weighs 8 lbs but I carry it in a duffle bag to the stand If I have to walk more than 100 yards.

Seriously warm . Has internal pockets for body warmers. I've never needed any.

I don't know if this is made or sold by Cabelas/Bass pro now but If I had to I'd buy a used set.

A friend of mine swears by his IWOM. It is made in America, Pennsylvania I think. Eric

I donít have one of these suits but I do have other arctic shield products, stumbled across them, they are worth every penny.

Supposedly it's comfortable. I only know of 1 person that has this suit though.


The Heater Body Suit is another, albeit more expensive option

It is nice that some company makes hunting duds for armless hunters lacking bladder control.

My friend said the zippers work in a way such that there is a good option with this suit to leave your arms exposed, with apparent little loss of body heat.

I didn't ask him if he had any trouble going to the bathroom with this on

Being bundled up like that in a tree stand though--it does create what I could see being an awkward situation, not only for safety but for being able to shoot out of without creating a commotion.
