Just got some merino wool lightweight base layers. I sweat at the slightest thing, They wick moisture and don’t feel clammy. Highly recommended. I got Black Ovis from camofire. Relatively cheap.

My key for you is try not to sweat. Leave the truck feeling cold. Layer up when you’re about to go up the tree for the last time.

Keep your hands, feet, and head warm. Of course stay cool/er on the way in to avoid getting all wet, and I do that by walking super slow & by exposing as much of my body to the cold as possible, namely by core. Wearing a wind proof vest helps. I also have been wearing a one peice coverall that is 1 size to big and has really helped with keeping me warm, which reminds me of my WarmBag keeping in all that heat.

Merino wool next to the skin has been a big improvement for me. Started wearing it last year. A thick fleece sweater after that, then a insulated parka with a wind proof waterproof gortex shell. I really like cabelas mt050 material for an outer shell. Sat the last two days in wind , cold, and rain and stayed pretty comfortable.

I just picked up the Pnuma heated vest today. I will report back, but it sure seemed warm when I was wearing it around the house. :lol:

Anybody tried the "ICONX HUNTING BASE LAYER SHIRT" ?

I might go with their base layers instead of under armor.
Go as hard as you can, for all long as you can, while you still can.

I just ordered an IWOM in predator fall grey. Looking forward to using it in our late season here. I go back to work tomorrow. I usually don’t hunt our gun season. I’ll be back at it in December. First time in 3 years I’ll be able to hunt the late season not being tagged out. Looking forward to it

You will love the IWOM and wonder how you went without it all these years. 8-)

Placing those things over your lower back kidney area will keep you significantly warmer.

Same here. I’m getting soft in my old age. Heated seats and steering wheel in my truck, HBS, IWOM, heated vest and battery operated hand warmer. What the heck!!! :lol:

I paid out of my own pocket to put heated seats in my company truck. Well worth it.

I put them in my truck as well. I will never not have them again. Worth every penny for sure.
