One of the biggest challenges I face hunting the open plains of North Dakota is the wind. During the winter months the freezing temperature combined with high wind can be brutal. I love waxed canvas because it not only keeps you dry during snowfall, but it is excellent for blocking out the wind. The Barbour Wax Jacket is essentially a shell that I can layer differently depending on the temperature, and has the option of purchasing a separate fleece vest that zips in. It has hand warming pockets as well as convenient deep front pockets. This high quality, great looking jacket is something I wear in the field as well as around town – $349 click here to learn more.
