Double Hood Reviews
I am back from my Montana elk hunt and I have to say the [All Around Jacket] performed nicely. We didn't have any severely cold weather (like they are having this week). Our temps were in the 30's and 40's but we had winds constantly in the 25-40 mph range all week. I took a nice 6x6 bull (my first) on the second day of the hunt. I had several people comment on the AAJ. With the winds we had the hood was a real life saver while we were glassing. Thanks for a great product and great customer service.
Under the AAJ I wore a Smartwool MidWeight (250 I think) zip neck base layer and an LL Bean Chamois shirt. The shirt was a little heavy. It is also cotton and did get a little damp from sweat. Most of the time it was unbuttoned for ventilation. I would have been better wearing a vest or lighter weight shirt (wool or similar). Walking uphill I did get a little overheated but I just unzipped the AAJ. Just an observation on my part-what about "pit zips" to aid in ventilation? I wore a Stormy Kromer original hat. When we stopped to glass the ear flaps came down and the AAJ hood would come up. I generally don't like hoods but this one was great.
