Default Hunting jackets with wind barrier lining, well

I now own one that works and is the quietest piece of camo clothing that I own Finally a windproof garment that works, is as flexible in cold weather as in warm temps, and stays quiet!!!!

Every time I've checked out a jacket that boasted as being windproof, I give it a simple quick test right in the store. Just take your fingers and rub them, all those I have tried that on make me cringe.....talk about noise on a cold day on stand! At room temp most if not all are too noisy for me to take into the woods to bowhunt with.

Thanks to Greg/Mo's urging and a couple of others comments on Gray Wolf Woolens garments, I happened to find a great deal on a jacket made by GWW in Predator Fall Gray in the wolfskin material that has the Comformax wind barrier lining. It works great keeping the wind out(cold winds usually go through me like a knife through butter) and is extremely quiet! No glue or other laminating process that allows noise like other windproof garments. High quality made workmanship and materials.

I gave it my first real test this afternoon. Normally I would wear my thinsulate camo jacket with an insulated vest over a few other layers, but I decided to see if the jacket was all hype or the real deal. I wore my normal underlayers with one exception, I left the vest at home. With gusting winds thoughout the early evening, the jacket with wind barrier lining worked better than I imagined. It stayed soft, flexible and quiet!!! It stopped the wind and I had no problem being cold. Now, in much colder temps I honestly believe I could wear this jacket with more layers and be less bulky, giving me more mobility and a better chance at making a shot with my bowhunting equipment.

Just a mini-review, but I am estatic!!

Is there a web-site so we can see what that product looks like?

Maytom, its not cheap. But I got lucky and found a same as new jacket for sale from an individual on another site........AT. I plan on ordering a matching pair of pants with cargo pockets and windbarrier lining after Xmas. By the way, what seems to be "white" in this pic is not white, but "light tan". Here is a pic of my jacket:
