    Vests

    How many of you are vest guys? I have used a few of them and really like it for insulation purposes.

    If it is very cold I wear one- especially archery hunting. I feel they restrict you less than full sleeve coats so drawing your bow in cold weather is still manageable.

    I have a sitka Jetstream and a Firstlite Labrador. I use them all of the time, especially bowhunting. I am tempted to pick up a Primaloft Patagonian Nanopuff this season.

    Not into the life jackets much. Lol I bet it would help core temps in very cold weather.

    wear em year round. got way to many to list. I even use the normal vest with my bob vest. Basically take a wool shirt that shrunk on you. cut the collar off and the sleeves to short sleeve length. great layering system. I got a very light fleece that I did that with. goes good under my kayaking dry top or under my rain shell mountain biking.

    I wear my vest over my merino wool during archery season. It's the Kuiu guide vest and I highly recommend it.

    Vests

    I love wearing a vest for layering. I especially like it in summer /early fall when glassing early when it's chilly and it's smaller than a jacket to throw in my bag when it warms up. I am set to upgrade to a kuiu guide vest but my size has been back ordered for what seems like forever.

    I like vests when hunting and working. Helps with the core temp and doesn't restrict movement. Love them for bow hunting.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    I have the Sitka kelvin light. I chose the vest because it is a nice addon to layering, but not excessive. I also wanted the primaloft for safe insulation if I get soaked. I don't have slot of time on it, but so far I am a big fan.
