Anybody have any experience with the Arctic Shield clothing? The boot covers are well spoken for but haven't seen much about the parkas and bibs. I need some late season gear and a full set of this stuff is substantially more affordable than than Sitka, FL, etc.

I have two brothers that use it. We live in central Wisconsin and they use it for whitetail in November and coyotes in January. They stay warm in it. They pack it in a backpack cause if you wear it while moving you will be soaked in sweat in no time. The build quality isn't the best as they have both had issues with zippers. Overall though they are both pleased with it.

Thanks for the feedback. Was hoping there might be a few other people on here who are cheap too.

I have their older jacket, pants, beanie, and gloves. On one late season cow elk hunt I used them down to -12 F (not counting 35+ mph winds) with a base layer underneath. Here is what I found:

* They are very warm.
* They block the wind.
* They are well suited for stationary hunting (ex: sitting in a blind).
* They are not suited for elevated/sustained amounts of physical activity; you will overheat.
* The temperatures need to be cold all day.
* Gloves could be better.
* Will be the most refreshing leak you ever take when the heat escapes.
* Do not pass gas while wearing the pants/bibs. It will "stew".

I decided to keep the setup for potential future hunts where it'd be well suited; I do bring the jacket out a few times a year when waterfowl hunting if it is really cold.

Never heard of this brand until now...I'm going to look into it more. Thanks for the detailed review. I need a good late season parka and certainly can't afford some of the big names....

Thanks for the info. Definitely what I wanted to hear. I'll keep my eyes peeled for some black friday deals.
