    Favorite winter camo?

    Thinking of upgrading from a Mil Surplus German Poncho. What is everyone using and how is it working?

    I have two sets and like them both:

    *Gray Wolf Woolens Wolfskin Predator Winter White Jacket and Bibs.
    *Kings Snow Shadow Jacket and Bibs.

    Both work excellent and you disappear at a distance with both snow camo patterns.

    Also have a set of "cover ups" in Nat Snow Camo that work great early and late season.

    So far my winter camo is the same as my fall camo. I use ASAT. During the fall I wear kanabs, during the winter I use north branch pants. Layer according to the weather and use my rain jacket as my outer shell.

    I guess I am the Cheepo of the bunch, used the painters cover alls for years, super light weight folds down to a little thing, helps retain heat and easy to put on in the field with your boots and cold weather stuff on. and they are very cost effective

    Thanks guys for all your comments.

    I guess what I am really looking for is a cover up. I have plenty of warm layers, camo and non camo, including some insulated pieces. Staying warm is usually not too much of an issue. Instead of buying dedicated pieces in snow camo, I was hoping for something to throw on over my "normal" stuff.

    Opah, I'm cheap too! Hence the Military Surplus Snow poncho.

    Justin. I presume the your rain jacket then is ASAT?

    It is. My base layers are black, outerwear is ASAT.

    I just layer up with my good stuff and have several light weight jackets and pants cover sets. My favorite was a mesh one, it last several years and was cheap.

    White tyveks suits are super light and compact. Be careful with them around brush..it rips them apart.

    I've used a white garbage bag before, but normally I just wear the same camo (kings desert shadow) I wear all year long.

    Movement is infinitely more important than what you're wearing

    I just use a Norwegian, or Finnish (or some Scandinavian country that I cannot remember since I have had it so long) white smock, that zips over my down coat. It has worked fine for years.

    Wore Nat Gear for a week at elevation in Utah during a rippin' wind-driven snowstorm. Love their bib/jacket and glove combo. Affordable and reliable.

    For Alaska winter hunting during caribou season I would have a 22 Hornet handy for close range a 243 Win for long range varmints or caribou. When caribou season was over, I always chose to take the Hornet on the snowmachine.

    This winter I am using the new FN 5.7x28mm pistol on the trap line as my close in varmint gun and the AR-15 with a 223 Rem barrel for varmints at long range.
