I doubt it. Usually the body doesn't get cold, jut fingers and toes. Then again, if you are flexible enough, maybe you can get your hands and feet into your jacket.

I bought one a few years ago and they are very warm. The year I bought it, was the deer season opener of -20F. I was able to stay in the stand that morning for 5 hours. Now the downfalls 1)too bulky to carry into the stand 2)very hard to put on without falling over, however I was putting on the booties that came with it 3)Since that opening morning, we haven't had that cold of weather.

I would not purchase another one. I would use that money to buy good quality bibs, jacket and boots.

I bought one about 8 years ago and although I don't use it every time out, it does help me to sit longer than I would without it. IMO, it is worth the money if you sit for 5-6 hours or more at a crack or if it is real cold. When we had that 15-20 below a few years ago I sat from sunrise till 3:00 PM and was just a little chilled. I have also used it bowhunting in late December and stayed toasty. It is a little bulky to get into but once in it I think it works good. I used a sleeping bag prior to buying this and that worked OK. The heater body suit works better though. If you stand sit for long periods I think you will like it. I usually haul it out to my stand the day before and hike out dressed light and pack in my coat. I would buy one again if the extra money was available.

I would agree that you should take a look at the Artic Armor wear. They have the red suit and the camo for hunting. I recieved my camo one today and put it on and was walking around outside to see how it fit and how it was when bending and so forth.

This will be a great addition to my hunting clothes. Check the suits out here

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
