I used to wear one all of the time (even when target shooting with a t-shirt on[:-]). I have since changed a lot with my form, and I no longer need one when shooting with light clothing on, but I will still wear it in the woods. My ASAT 3d can get in the way at times.

Only with my longbow or recurve. Back in the day I just took a black sock and put it on my bow are forearm to hold in a bulky jacket.

Now I don’t use anything, I get no slap with an STS and good form.

I don't use one when practicing, but always while hunting.

Yep, wear one similar to this all the time. May try that sock as well. Looks like it would work.

I do if I am wearing a heavy jacket, but only to keep the clothing held down. Honestly I have never had the string hitting my clothes throw a shot off though, it just makes a lot of noise is all. Normally if you missed you probably would have missed anyway.

Just think, any obstruction to the string going forward is going to throw a shot off in some way.
