So, got all my Black Friday order in and the Ptarmigan, while warm, seems very flat. Not as “puffy” as I expected. For those that have them, how puffy should it be? I am letting it lay out in hopes it was just compressed too long in its packaging. I also acquired some UA alpine bottoms and they seem to have much more puff to them.

Any input?

**The Summit pattern looks even better in person vs online!
I have the old Ptarmigan and I wouldnt worry about it being flat I have used mine down into the single digits and never been cold.

Here's a quick look at the new Hardscrabble jacket in gun metal gray. Can't wait to get a set pre-orders should ship before Christmas

Here's a shot of Mike W, Mike N, and Nate.

Had a great time chatting with these guys. If you ever see them at a show head over and say hello. I guarantee you'll hear a great hunting story or two.

It has definitely puffed up after hanging for a week or so. Had a chance to wear it to work in temps right at freezing, and it was crazy warm. Most of the time spent outside is just standing and observing, so it did the job well. Really liking this jacket!

I've worn the new Kodiak pants a bunch now. Wore them while stand hunting whitetails in Missouri and been grinding away at late season cow elk here in Utah. Elk are amazing creatures and still holding very high up. Snow was way over shin deep, lots of breaking trail in knee deep with drifts even higher. Good way to burn calories but poor way to cover any ground in a timely manner. Daughter said it was too much work half way there. Still a couple weeks left in the season hopefully they'll push down and closer to the road so she'll get more excited to go.

My hunting partner took advantage of the nice weather and topped his freezer off.

Well I've been on this drop of blood for 3 miles think I've narrowed down where she bedded for the day. Holding tight in our glassing position until we can determine which elk is the one.

Amazing what punishment elk can take. Not sure wear the hit is but still dripping after waiting over night and elk still on it's feet. Hopefully my daughter will tag her first elk

Well nothing moved saw zero elk, such a let down for her. Going back in the morning but fly out to work in the afternoon so hopefully it pans out early.

Update: Glassed all morning and can't find where these elk went what a punch in the gut to let my daughter down.
