    My favorites are my Timberline pants, and my 90% jacket.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Jackets:
    Kryptek Dalibor II when I'll use a hood on my outer layer a lot. It's a heavy softshell but very well designed great pockets, hood & cuffs
    Sitka Mountain Jacket when I don't need the hood. I REALLY wish there was a hooded Mountain Jacket

    Pants:
    Kryptek Dalibor II pants for colder hunts, Sitka Ascent pants for warmer hunts

    Raingear:
    I have not had any of these out in downpours yet but bought them for AK hunts I have planned. Around home I'm using Helly Hansen Impertech when it's raining so I don't put barb wire holes in the expensive stuff crossing fences. I don't usually have to hike fast enough around home to need breathable rain gear I just slow down. I got the good raingear bought at very large discounts by being patient. I got 2 jackets for AK so one can have a chance to dry while I wear the other. I have used these items glassing in snow and wind and they block it well.

    Kuiu Yukon pants These fit better for hiking than the other brands I tried, others were to baggy on me
    FL SEAK jacket Only downside to this jacket is the sleeves are a bit tight and it's a little noisy
    Sitka Cloudburst jacket Great fit, maybe slightly less noisy than the SEAK. More breathable but I'm not sure if it's as tough.

    I agree. Crispi fit me the best.
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    Boots I like the Salomon 4D GTX for when a stiff boot isn't necessary, the Kennetrek Mountain Extreme for when I want the stiff boot or there is snow. I also have a pair of insulated Cabelas Alaskan Hunter boots by Meindl that have served well for several years. I don't seem to have to much trouble with boot fit.

    I still roll the old APX Russel outdoor gear occasioanlly. I am tall and found that it fit me quite well but these days more often than not I skip the outfit and just wear wranglers and a sweatshirt. I mostly day hunt and the areas I go are not places that require special gear, unless its' really cold, and then I wear my carhart overalls.

    I swear animals seem to be more comfortable when you look like a rancher instead of a hunter. And one day my daughter pointed out how hunters like to play dress up in matching camo outfits down to the gloves, hat, etc... just like women.

    Danner desert boots unless its' really snowy or raining, then the Mendl or Kenetreks.

    How does the Cold Front jacket do when you're on the move? Been thinking about getting a warmer late season jacket instead of so many layers.
