It's been about 10 years since I've been to Colorado. I remember having to wear a crinkly orange vest. Which brand should I buy for my November deer hunt?

Here in ontario we need 400 sq inches of blaze orange. A super thin fleece blaze orange vest is light and quiet and fits the bill when i have to wear it.

I've tried a bunch and without going thru a detailed history I like a simple gamehide vest the best. Got mine at an army surplus store. Quiet, light, and simple.

I found a cheap thin fleece vest that I use and it has treated me well.
On the other hand, I am trying to find a fitted or flex fit orange hat and have not found one yet - anyone have any ideas?
I checked the local Sportsmans and a few other placs but they are all adjustable

I dislike hunters orange for more than one reason but it is neccesary with so many crazies running around the woods in some areas. I found a blaze orange camo vest that I really like. I am not sure of the brand but I think it helps to break up your outline.

There is a possibility that i may be able to get fitted/flexfit orange hats. If i can get them you would have the choice of with my logo or a plain orange hat. I am waiting to see if they have them instock. I will try to keep you updated.

I have a flex fit blaze hat made by under armor. Got it a couple of years ago so I'm guessing they still make it.

I just searched out the Under Armor website the only orange hat they offer has the standard rear clousure. If you find something different let me know.

Bambi Slayer - camo blaze is not legal in CO (still not sure why). Let me know what you find for the hats - I would be interested.
