Alright guys and gals. So I'm on a weight loss journey and trying to get back in shape. All my high end gear is no longer fitting and honestly, I dont feel like paying the high prices to replace it all. Im a whitetail hunter so not alot of backpacking and spending days in the backcountry. Anyways, what is some budget gear that you've found to be a great bang for you buck? Pants, jackets, base layers, or just gear in general.

The Walmart Wrangler outdoor pants seem to be on top of everyone's list and I already have a pair in every color

This thread right here:


But after going through it you might just end up spending more than if you went with the expensive gear and didn’t have all the extra good ideas haha

I did something very similar a couple of years ago and one thing that I have done to still be able to wear my old pants is got a pair of suspenders. I love them.

I second the Wooltimate from Cabelas/Bass Pro. It is one of the few original Cabelas lines they have kept. Bonus is the “wind shear”.

Used wool jackets and bibs. Cabelas Wooltimate or Columbia Brand.
Eddie Bauer puffy jackets or down.
Ridge Merino.

Also, good work on the fitness and weight loss routine! It's a journey, keep at it.
