The only way to lose weight is the long game. Burn more calories than you take in every day. Get out and stay moving. I run, light weights, rowing machine for about an hour or so 3-4 times a week and keep my calories under my output. So many apps to help you keep track.
If your question was for me Id say both. I keep mine in my pack to throw on when sitting and glassing, or in a blind or stand. I also stalk with it, but I make sure to wear a vapor rain cover or make sure not to completely drag it through the thorns and brush. Its not as delicate as people make...
I own a chamberlain now. Ive been considering a sanctuary for bow hunting. I can't compare the two but I can comment on the Chamberlains warmth. Its a great jacket, its super warm on my Idaho hunts down to 10-20 degrees. But I am worried about it ripping in brush. I do often wear a FL vapor rain...
I gave up using a crock pot slow cooker. We only user the pressure style insta pot system now with all our game. Its amazing what It will do in a fraction of the time, and it basically falls off the bone its so tender.
I’ve been using Alaskan guide creations for 6 years And wanted something new . I’ve used FHF and the Kuiu pro this season until I got my enclosed marsupial.
Im so sold on it I’m dumbfounded how I used anything but their stuff.
I run under armor cold compression stuff, then first lite merino wool base layer.
Then my guide or catalyst pants/jacket.
I always carry my rain gear and I always carry my puffy pants/jacket but rarely wear them doing much outside of glassing or light duty stuff.
I really like the KUIU icon 1850..
It can be run without the frame system, has poles to keep it solid. Super lightweight, really roomy, cinches down really nice.
I use mine for white tail day hunts and it has really been a workhorse for me.
