    Mid layers

    Hi folks!

    So as my hunting plans are targeting one thing and 2 things only- Big stags/bucks or Chamois.

    Of which every free weekend I get I'll be out in the tent being very specific about my quarry.

    For my winter missions I run a Tatonka 70+10 bison pack, merino long John's and top.
    Stoney creek 6 pocket shorts(the ones they don't make anymore! Naughty!) Then a Stoney creek The rock top with a Stoney creek Tundra jacket plus gloves and beanie and gaiters etc.

    However I've found I need a mid layer but I still want it to be light and shower proof.
    I'm just tossing up between do I get a vest or a lighter jacket or Use my Rock top as a mid layer and then buy a regular fleece as a base type layer?

    As I'm playing in the snow lots too so hence the need for a bit more warmth(75kg of skin and bone sucks in this respect lol)


    Cheers Folks!

    You could go for a light weight puffer jacket...One that has a bit of rain proofing but not essential if you have your Tundra.
    I run a base layer, mid layer fleece and Glasnock jacket. When its real cold I take a lightweight puffer to put on under the fleece. Puffer weighs nothing and packs away.

    I'm looking at a Mac Pac with rain guard funnily enough.

    I'm just torn as there is the Stoney creek thermolite series but they are $$

    If you can afford the space in the pack wear on earth vest... Have a Macpac (might be Kathmandu) light vest and it packs down to nothing often just use that and an outer waterproof shell

    If you have the Tundra, I’d maybe ditch the rock pullover for a fleece top and a light weight down jacket/Vest
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!
