    Yes - all this "modern stuff" is all hype and glossy photos
    What peeves me off most - is they state its "breathable" can anyone - give me an example of a waterproof garment that also dosent turn into a sauna with activeness ??
    I have a Swazi Wapiti coat (had it 15 years now) its pretty good - but you still wind the Temp dial up and end up wet from sweat.
    I cant hunt in it - good on bike or boat

    Online basically.
    Makes sizing a challenge for a lot of people. Most common is a tighter fit than expected. Some of that comes down to being a layering system though I think and therefore a tight fit over baggy to enable all those layers

    Don't touch Hunters Element, stick to quality. Kuiu, Swazi and some Stoney Creek jackets.

    Only online purchases, that is part of the model, cuts out the middleman.
