Staying warm is great, but I can’t stand feeling like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man while hunting. I was able to wear Filson’s Ultralight Hooded Jacket in single digit temps with just one layer beneath and retain that sweet spot between sweating and hypothermia. Yet, this jacket is sheer enough that the bird vest slides easily over and it has no impact on a clean shotgun mount.
We’re always on the move to keep up with wild birds and wild-eyed bird dogs, the thin layer of PrimaLoft® Gold insulation lets the jacket breathe. But if we have to hole up and endure a passing storm, I can throw over and cinch down the hood, tuck my gloves inside the elastic cuffs and be confident no weather will get the best of me.
Nothing warms my heart like an 80’s movies reference, but this jacket comes pretty close — $245.
