Picking the best cold weather hunting clothing is a task that all hunters have to deal with. Their decision usually comes down to the brand that they have used over the years and trust. But what happens when you are new to the wonderful world of hunting. How do you know what brand of clothing is going to do the job?
We are going to compare three brands that I think perform the best in the cold. These brands are Mossy Oak, Columbia, and Browning.
Columbia is a company that has been around for years, and they specialize in outdoor clothing. Their linne of hunting jackets are by far one of the best out there. These jackets come in soft shell, and rain protection. Each style comes with blood and stain protection which is perfect for a hunter. With the zippered pockets it is a bonus so you don’t need to worry about items falling out. The odor elimination technology in the clothing is perfect for hunting, because the animal won’t be able to pick up your sent. As a hunter you know how vital this is. The clothing by Columbia isn’t bulky and it does one very important thing, it keeps you warm.
The one small issue with the jacket is that they can be a little loud when moving around, but this isn’t a turn off as it offers so many positives.
Price on these coats are above $100, but they are worth the money. Because of the warmth, and the lightweight of these coats along with all the other benefits is why I put this brand at number 1.
2. Mossy oak
Mossy Oak coats come in fleece, soft shell, and fully insulated. They all come with front pockets for holding any of the necessary essentials. You may need to use extra products to eliminate your odor. With such a wide selection this brand is perfect selection for layering. These coats range in price and is perfect for people who don’t want to spend a large amount on a hunting jacket.
Because of these coats being inexpensive, and offers a wider selection I consider it a number 2 brand.
Browning is another company that has been in the hunting business for a very long time. They by far make some of the best hunting equipment there is. Browning has designed their clothing for the hunter. They have lightweight coats that provide great warmth and comfort. Depending on the style you can get a reversible jacket that is camo on one side and blaze orange on the inside. This is great for those budget conscious people who don’t want to buy multiple coats.
These coats are both wind and water resistant which again is what you want when outdoors. The zippered pockets also help keep items in place.
These coats will cost around $100 depending on the style you want, but you can’t go wrong purchasing this brand.
No matter what season you need a hunting jacket, buying any of these brands will leave you confident that you made the right choice.
