Anyone still use the traditional wool suits? Im thinking about getting a suit, but Im not sure what the drawbacks are.

I use one if the weather's real cold.The only drawback is that it get's really heavy when wet--but it'll still keep you warm

I have a nice Browning camo wool suit that I wear. I have it for extreme cold NE days. I have a nice pair of 6 pocket cargo pants w/ a matching jacket. I picked it up on ebay last year new. It has a very comfortable fleece lining in it too.
They do get heavy quick when wet.
I usually wear the pant most of gun season. The jacket only on cold sits.

I like a wool suit too. I prefer to wear with the vest. The vest keeps the tie in and keeps it from hanging out and catching on brush.

To heavy for me for my style of hunting.Hunters have been successful with it for generations though.
