I have used a heater body suit and for really cold weather, I'm talking well below zero with winds 25mph or more I have found it the only way I could stay warm. I've tried all the bulky layers of different clothing and eventually it got to the point where it was too bulky to shoot and still not very warm. Now when hunting in the cold I use my heater body suit and the same clothes I use for temps around 30 deg on underneath and stay reasonably warm. It's basically a sleeping bag with legs and no arms, it has a very quiet and easy working zipper down the middle so you can easily open up and slip upper body out for a shot. Works for both rifle and archery hunting for me. Hope this helps.

I think that means bring your sleeping bag with you when you plan on sitting in a tree stand all day !!!

I love my HBS! And I'm in MN - use it all the time. Pack in your warmth and dress light to the stand!

You will NOT regret your purchase!
Practice getting in and out plenty of times on the ground first!
The "I dress in layers" guys have never used a HBS.
